Tippy is a roughly 3 yr. old Min Pinscher mix. The Owner got her from the previous owner as a gift; she has owned Tippy for over 6 months. The owner surrendered Tippy because the owner is moving and can’t take her Tippy has no health problems and has never been taken to a vet.
Around strangers Tippy is friendly and outgoing. Tippy has lived with 3 children between the ages of 9 and 21 years old, she is relaxed and playful around the children and adults. Tippy does not interact with other dogs and will often bark at them. Tippy has never bitten anyone.
The owner stats that Tippy is not bothered when some moves her food or treats while she is eating, when someone takes her toys away or when someone disturbs her while sleeping. Tippy likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had her nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches her home she will bark at them for a long time.

For a new family to know:
