Meet Tipsy

  • Female, spayed, ~1.5 years
  • Fully vaccinated
  • Provided regular preventative care for parasite management (fleas, ticks, intestinal worms)

Tipsy joined our pack at the end of December 2020, with 3 of her sisters at ~8wks old. They were dumped in a box on the street and a tourist called us to pick them up. She is a submissive dog and was at the bottom of the pack from the start. She is quiet and excited to make friends, she is ideal for a family.

She is a quiet, mixed breed Thai dog. Based off the genetics on our island, we can say she classifies as an Asian spitz mix including: Thai ridgeback, and other spitz’ for this geographical region. These are companion/hunting animals, quiet, athletic/medium build dogs. She has erect ears, medium hair, and does have the tell-tale ridge of hair along the spine growing backwards.

After the end of our last rainy season, Tipsy and her sister Atlas moved down the ravine from our house. They spent these last 6 months at the beach enjoying the sun and swimming. Tipsy really loves to swim. She adjusted immediately to our neighbour as her foster parent and made friends with new dogs at the beach. There is 1 cat at her new house, but it’s our understanding they don’t spend much time together.

It is very difficult and financially challenging for dogs to be homed permanently on our island. She had a great start here immediately in foster care and she is ready for that next step – for her forever home.

Nervousness: Tipsy is a submissive and friendly dog. She loves people and is quick to make new friends.

Suitability for Children: Tipsy does not have much direct experience with children but she has a fun and submissive personality. We believe she would be a great family dog.
