Update on Mildred

Update on Mildred

Adopted June 2016

Dog’s former name Hennipen

What are the best things about your dog?
Millie is filled with love and is such a sweetheart. She is active, smart and such a loving little girl. We love including our dog in all aspects of our life, and Millie never ceases to amaze us with how smart she is and how easily she adapts to all of her surroundings.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Millie loves going hiking and on long walks around the lakes. She absolutely adores going over to her grandparents house to hang out with her Doberman friends. Laying in the backyard on a nice day or lounging in her pool are also some of her favorite things. She loves car rides and any adventure in general. One of her new favorite things is accompanying me to the golf course where she loves to run/ride in the cart and has become a huge fan amongst the patrons and employees both. As a puppy she made great strides and grew immensely throughout her training at the K-9 Coach, we’re now extremely confident about Millie’s ability to handle and succeed in any situation.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Millie loves sleeping on her huge beds at the bottom of our couch. When she is not sleeping, you can usually find her in the backyard laying in the grass or roaming around watching the squirrels and birds. She is a very active dog who is full of energy, and definitely keeps us moving and physically active.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Millie completed her training and obedience courses at K-9 Coach and showed incredible growth and progression throughout the classes, we were very proud of that. She now is able to be off leash in the park when we play fetch or go on hikes, and stays by our side at all times. She is definitely one smart cookie!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
We have not had one single bad reaction to our pit bull. She has been an absolute angel and couldn’t be sweeter when meeting new people. In typical Pit bull fashion, her tail goes 100mph and she loves showering people with kisses. When we set out to adopt through Save-a-Bull, we wanted to make sure that we did everything we can to be great ambassadors for the breed, and Millie has made that beyond easy with her sweet demeanor and her ability to follow commands. We love her so much and couldn’t ask for a better companion.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Millie

Update on Pippin

Update on Pippin

Adopted June 2016

Dog’s former name Nicollet

What are the best things about your dog?
Pippin wants to be everyone’s friend. She loves kids, with the really little ones she knows to lie on her back and be very gentle. She’s very smart and easy to train. She loves sleeping on her back like a goofball! We are adventure partners, she comes camping, canoeing, trail running, and she is a great “crag dog”, a dog that hangs out at a rock climbing spot.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Pippin’s favorite things to do are to play with her neighbor friend Lucy where they go in the dog house together, running around and swimming by the river, and playing with her one-eyed pitbull friend Ozzie. And of course chasing deer, which her mom hates.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Pippin is goes from zero to 100. At home she loves to cuddle up and chew on a rawhide, or look out the window at squirrels and rabbits. Outside she is a maniac on the hunt for any and everything, whether the smell is real or imagined!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Only a week after I adopted Pippin we took her on a family canoe trip, she slept most of the time, but this year being older, she was much more interested in sniffing out the woods. She took a tumble in the river and swam though some rapids, after that she was happy to stay in the canoe! Pippin loves going on long trail runs with me, by the end of the longer ones it’s her trailing behind!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Pippin doesn’t look super pitty, but most people can tell she is at least part pit. Most people have been very positive, but Pippin loves people so much it is hard to be afraid of her! I get a lot of compliments on how good looking she is, good thing Pippin can’t understand, otherwise I think she’d be quite vain.

What other stories do you want to share?
Pippin loves to clean other dogs’ teeth. She will stick her whole muzzle in another dog’s open mouth and lick lick lick….

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Pippers, Gumba, Alligator, Pipps, Pippin Pooper, Bat Dog, Demon Dog

FAST FIVE with Pippin

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Dog food is ok, steak is better!

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on, until I find a good seam to rip open.

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides, but only if I can look out the front window.

4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day, unless it’s bath time, then no way.

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? I get hot easily if it’s above 60!
