Pet of the Week for April 22, 2014

Pippa the dog

PIPPA is a 5-year-old female golden retriever mix adoptable through Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota Inc. She’s 45 pounds of energetic affection and is housebroken, knows most basic commands and doesn’t need a fenced-in yard. Because of her energy, she would do best in a home where the children are at least 10 years old. She would also prefer to be the only dog in a cat-free home.
