Birdie Pittiepotamus is an ADORABLE hippo/staffy/bulldog mix. Birdie is an itty bitty pittie at only 30 lbs and has the most hysterically endearing personality. She's an extreme cuddler and loves to full body spoon her people and rest her head on their laps at night while watching their favorite programs. Birdie is (best guess) 8-10 months old and has likely had a lot of hard living in her short life. She came to Underdogs as sad little skinny baldy with a tiny crooked stub tail. Birdie has been undergoing treatment for her (noncontagious) demodex mange and she's already starting to regrow her hairs in all her baldy spots.

Our darling girl has not let her sad past dampen her sweet demeanour, though, and she LOVES everyone she meets. Her most favorite thing is two-legged hippo hugging the humans (we're working on only hugging when asked).  She also loves dog friends and is very dog social and would be a great fit for a friendly, confident and even-keeled resident pup. Birdie can't get enough of romping and wrestling with her three times her size Malamute foster brother. Her hard luck past has made her worried that the good eats and treats will dissapear and she'll end up starving again, but her food insecurity is easily managed by feeding her seperately in her crate. Birdie has already mastered all the important mutt tricks and is incredibly smart and eager to please. She's pro at sit, come, leave it and is continuing to build her leash braveries in this whole new world. * Although, dudes in backpacks with giant fishing pole antennas are the most scary (but wouldn't they be to anyone?). *

Birdie is truly the sweetest little pittiepotamous and can't wait to meet you!

Birdie's adoption includes training support from her very awesome professional trainer foster mom, so she can continue to be the best Birdie she can be.

It may take up to two weeks for application review and one of our coordinators will reach out to you as soon as we are through the intitial review process.
