Pippa and her family came in to the shelter, all suffering from
a serious case of mange. Though the entire family was riddled with
itchy skin, little Pippa was the worst of all.
Poor little Pippa was covered in sores, and her skin was rough
to the touch. Once her photo was shared with rescuers, she caught
the eye of a local foster named Amanda Harris. Something in her
knew she had to come to the aid of this helpless puppy, so she
rushed to the shelter to pick her up to foster.
Though Pippa’s body was so itchy and scabbed, all she wanted
to do was cuddle with her new foster mom.
“She loves burrowing in blankets and cuddling more than
anything in the world.There were moments where I’d peek in on her
and wonder where she went, only to find her comfortably nestled
under all her blankets. It’s super adorable.” – Amanda
Harris took care of little Pippa around the clock. She needed
daily medication, special baths for her irritated skin, and extra
cuddles for to help get her through! As the weeks passed by, Harris
was amazed by how quickly her little body began to heal.
Her once red skin began to fade, and her beautiful cream coat
began to grow in. Along with her new fur, came her massive
Amanda Harris has two large dogs at home, but Pippa never seemed
to mind their difference in size. Like many other Chihuahuas, Pippa
believed that she was quite large and fierce! She absolutely loved
playing with her temporary sisters.
During her recovery journey, Pippa grew quite the fan base!
Everyone was so amazed by her incredible transformation, and wanted
to watch her find her forever home. Among her new following was an
interested adopter named Terri Dickson. After seeing the array of
adorable pictures throughout Pippa’s recovery, she knew she had
to meet her.
Once Terri held Pippa in her arms, the rest was history. Pippa
soon went to her new family home, and is settling in well!
Just like she always has, she loves nothing more than to cuddle
at every given opportunity. This little pup sure did get the happy
ending that she deserved!
We are so happy that Pippa found a loving family to call her
own. She will never have to feel discomfort again!
