    Good day to you, human. You may call me Pippin. I may look like a dog, but I’m actually a wise old elf stuck in a furry outer shell. I move at a steady pace, and must take time to gauge my surroundings before committing to anything. However, I do have a great instinct when it comes to humans – if you are kind, I will teach you. My quest is to find and adopt a human who is filled with love and patience. A human such as that would inspire great loyalty in me and I could see us forging an inseparable bond. In exchange for your patience, I will agree to keep your toes and legs warm in the winter. I really don’t mind at all, as I find comfort in leaning into you and sitting by your side. I believe you humans call this a win-win. My dog form is only a couple of years old, so I have a youthful glint to my eyes and I want to sniff out treasures and head off on adventures, but my elfish-self is cautious and a bit introverted at times. I am far older and wiser than you, human, and I am a principled creature, therefore I will only sit if I choose to…of course, if you would like to open negotiations with scrumptious treats, I will always be more easily persuaded. I am a free spirit and sometimes want to forge my own path when we stroll through the neighbourhood, so please excuse me if I don’t always follow obediently. On the other hand, many would consider me a very ‘good dog’ as I think it’s undignified to relieve myself indoors and I could not imagine myself hollering – er…barking – incessantly. I also will not whine, even if you leave me alone, for that is beneath me. I am quite content to catch up on my beauty sleep in my crate in peace. It is my understanding that some of you humans choose partners, mini-humans and other fur-beasts to live with you in your homes. If this is the case with you, I may require additional time to adjust to this idea. Although mini-humans and pups can be quite endearing, I will need assurances that they will respect my boundaries. If you wish to apply to complete my quest, I would be happy to interview you for the position of Human Companion. Please click below.

      May require some patience when transitioning to a new home with other animals but she plays very well with her foster sister who is a medium size dog.
