Polar and Pippa are approximately 7 years old, they are spayed, microchipped and vaccinations will need restarted.


Pippa is a white short coated German Shepherd and Polar is heading towards medium coat. They have had a topsy turvy life. They were originally by an older gentleman for 6 years, when he died a family friend took them in but treated them badly, not enough food, exercise or attention. One of the original family members took the dogs back and got them back to a happy life but unfortunately this person has medical issues which make it difficult to keep Polar and Pippa.

Pippa is in charge, she is a bit underweight but she has always been like this. She will need her teeth cleaned but this will be made into playtime with Pippa. She also needs a good brush although her coat is lovely it is in need of a bit of attention.

Polar is in fantastic shape and has the most wonderful floofy bum! She loves being near people and was happy to curl up at assessors feet and didn't move unless it was for a treat or a walk.

Both are good with children. Polar was happy to kiss a baby that was in the house and also playing chase with a 10 year old in the park.

When the assessor was let into the home both charged over for an investigation and a fuss, lots of barking and tail wagging, no jumping up at all. Polar snuggled in while Pippa went to fetch her ball. Out on a walk they met other dogs but not a flicker of concern or real interest, just a quick look and then back to it. They live with a cat (who is boss) and leave her to it, so could live with a dog savvy cat with careful introductions.

Both have the basic commands sorted but they do have selective deafness when it suits them.

Pippa can be a bit nervous of sudden loud noises or movements startle her but settles as soon as she realises there is no threat. Polar is more easy going. They are fine left on their own for up to 2 hours. Both are happy to travel in the boot of the car, Pippa has been travel sick once but normally both are ok.

Both pull a little on the lead at the start of walk but soon settle down. Due to the owner's current illness and COVID the girls are not getting the exercise they need but are mostly playing in the garden.

They are fine at vets as long as they are together.

As previously stated Polar and Pippa are a bonded pair and will not be separated.

These 2 are basically bomb proof, they could go anywhere that can give them a good diet, good routine and plenty of play and fuss.

Whoever adopts them is hitting the jackpot. Twice!!!
