About Tippertoes

Chihuahua / Dachshund
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO ON THIS DOG BEFORE REQUESTING AN APPLICATION. MANY OF OUR DOGS HAVE STRICT REQUIREMENTS FOR THEIR ADOPTION. 1. Needs a higher fence 2. Kids aged 6 and above. Tippertoes, a 1-year-old, 12-pound male Chiweenie, is pure joy! He loves to cuddle, get belly rubs, and is a curious, playful pup. He loves to chase his toys and run around with other dogs. He has so much personality and tons of love to give, and his adopter will be lucky to have him as part of the family! Tipper is doing great on the leash and is working to get accustomed to traffic sounds and city noises on walks. He is a little shy when meeting new people and dogs but warms up after a few treats and some encouraging words. He loves to hoard toys and can be a little protective of them towards other dogs, but quickly stops when corrected. He hasn't met any children yet but does not react to them in passing on walks. Tipper loves sleeping in his crate and finds comfort being in it. Because Tipper loves to jump and hop, he needs a higher-fenced yard or to be on the leash at all times outside. He will jump on people to gain attention, so little kids will need to be watched. He is working on potty training and will let you know by whining or doing small zoomies. Tipper is not a barker but will bark if startled. To request an adoption application, email [email protected] Adoption contract and fee applies. All adoptable dogs can be met at adoption events hosted every weekend. For a list of scheduled events go to: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/events . Smidget Rescue is not a shelter, and dogs cannot be seen at the Rescue location. All dogs are fostered throughout the Puget Sound area and are brought to the events where they can be met by prospective adopters. Additional pictures of adoptable dogs can be seen at: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums. All adoptable dogs are spayed or neutered at 6 months of age or older. Puppies are adopted with a refundable spay/neuter deposit (in addition to the adoption fee) and adopters are required to get their puppy to our vet for their pre-scheduled spay-neuter appointments. APPLICATIONS CAN BE OBTAINED BY EMAIL ONLY. Adoption process includes application, meet & greet, home visit and reference check. Email Jamie at [email protected] or click on the CONTACT link on this page. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS BEFORE SENDING. We get a fair number of incorrect emails and Jamie is not able to contact potential adopters. Notice: We do not ship dogs out of state. You must live within a three-hour radius of Seattle, WA, (such as Portland, Vancouver B.C., etc.), so we can arrange for a home visit. If your home seems like a great fit for the dog you would like to adopt, you must then drive to meet the dog at one of our weekend events or at the fosters home.
