Tiny Hairless Puppy Loves To Snuggle

Grace Higgins | April 12th, 2019

It took one look at a picture of Pippa for a woman named Amanda Harris was on her way to the Atlanta Humane Society to foster her. The little puppy had just arrived at the shelter with her dad, mom, and brother. Pippa was just seven weeks old and while the entire family was in bad shape she was in the worst condition of them all. The entire dog family had mange, but poor Pippa had the worst case. She was covered in sores and scabs and had lost all her fur. Pippa was fragile and in a lot of pain, but all she wanted to do was snuggle. Amanda brought the pup home to foster her and had plenty of medication to treat her skin.

Amanda gave Pippa medicated baths and around the clock care. In return, Pippa snuggled every chance she got. She loves to burrow down into blankets and cuddle more than anything. Her skin was painful and itchy, but that never stopped her from snuggling. Thankfully, it took just a few days of treatment for Pippa’s skin to start healing. Her light colored fur even started to grow back. She received medicated baths each week, got medicine for her skin and even special food. Her skin started to heal very quickly. Best of all, her sweet personality began to emerge too. Though she is tiny, she has a big personality. Amanda, her foster mom, has two large dogs—the biggest of which weighs 80 pounds. Pippa didn’t seem to notice they were so much bigger than her.

Pippa loved to chase her foster brother and sister’s tails and even play a good old fashioned game of tug o war. The Atlanta Humane Society posted about Pippa’ progress on Facebook and soon someone stepped forward to adopt her: a woman named Terri Dickson. She fell in love with her after seeing photos and once she held her she knew she was the perfect dog for her. She lives with Terri now and snuggles up to her every chance she gets!
