About Durian

“Hi, I’m Durian (aka Pippa) and am a happy, playful pup! I am a beautiful girl with a soft coat. I am energetic and love being active during the day. I can entertain myself outside but will also settle at your feet when it is time for a rest. I also love taking walks and discovering all the amazing things in my neighbourhood.

My foster family says I’m learning my manners really well and have fun with all kinds of toys. I am a fast learner and am comfortable on my leash and harness and am fully house trained!  I’ve not been tested fully alone in the house for a long period of time just yet, but I have no problem sleeping in my crate at night.

I love getting treats from my humans and will take them from your hand politely. I’m a very smart dog and my foster family says I’m learning quickly as I’m highly food motivated.  I’ve learned how to sit, come, stay and am working on my other commands. I have lots of energy, so for now I need a home without young children – they also make me nervous, so an adult home would be best.

I am happy to see other dogs when I’m out walking and am learning how to greet them and strangers politely. I take a little bit of time to warm up to new people, but if you have treats, I’m your best friend! I would love another playful dog in the home but am also good being on my own with my foster mom. I would do best in a home where I don’t have to share hallways with strange people, ideally a house with a yard so I can be at my best.

I would love to join your family!” – xo, Durian
