Description: 
Kippie is not currently available for adoption. We are working on getting her medical issues cleared up and once she is healthy, she will be available. Kippie is an 8 year old beagle with some easily resolved health issues. She has 2 fatty tumors that are harmless, but annoying...and she has a terrible skin allergy problem. The vet suspects that she was once infested with fleas and we're hoping the skin heals soon and she stops chewing on herself. She's on medication now to help speed things along and she gets baths with special shampoo. She also has a nasty ear infection that is being treated. This poor girl must have been so miserable sitting in the pound without any of these issues being treated. Shelter to Home is fortunate to have the ability to help animals like Kippie due to donations from the public and the numerous fundraising events we hold. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue to help special needs animals. Kippie seems to be housebroken, crate trained, fine with cats, other dogs, and so far has only barked when she's happy that I've come home from work. She is also very gentle when taking treats, knows 'sit'...and isn't at all food aggressive around the other dogs. She found the best doggy bed in the house and plopped down in it, slept quietly all night, went potty for me before I went to work today, and then happily went into the crate. She kept her crate dry all day and ran right to the back door when I let her out. I think it's safe to say she's housebroken. Stay tuned for updates as Kippie improves.
