Pippa is a diamond in the rough with heaps of potential.

The Kelpie cross is a playful young pup that loves her toys and especially puzzle toys with food inside.

She is affectionate and is looking for a loving home and would benefit greatly from training.

The nine-month-old would suit someone with rescue or working breed experience as she is highly reactive and not dog social. If you are willing to put in the work she will make an excellent companion.

All dogs adopted from Sydney Dogs and Cats Home come behaviourally assessed, vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, flea and worm treated, microchipped and lifetime registered with council.
