This week’s ‘Happy Tails Tuesday’ features RSPCA rescue dog Pip owned by dog trainer Debby Smith

Pip (top & middle) was in rescue kennels for a long time and couldn’t get a home due to aggression issues. Molly (bottom left) and me fostered and then adopted Pip 3 years ago. In that time, we have seen Pip transform from a nervous & aggressive dog to a confident, trusting and happy little man. He adores his Molly and his favourite hobbies are sticking his snout in Molly’s ears, scrapping with Tiny (bottom right), playing Chief of Security on the window sill, and, making sure Mum doesn’t have a love life. He loves nothing more than chasing his ball on the field and then being carried home when he’s tired! He is a bundle of naughtiness and cuteness and we love him so much. He’s my very very special little boy.

I know I’m scared and nervous and shy
You might just want to walk on by
But please look again, please talk to me
And see the boy I’d like to be
I’ve never had a life of fun
I’ve never had the chance to run
To chase my ball till I’m all puffed out
To learn that people don’t always shout
I might not wag my tail at you
But look in my eyes, look closer too
There’s life in them, and hope and joy
And I’d love to be your special boy
