We first saw Faith’s story on the news, and were heart-broken that someone could be so cruel to an innocent animal. We immediately reached out to SOCA-FBC to submit an adoption application. After Faith healed from her surgeries and we completed a successful home visit, we were able to adopt Faith (renamed Tipper)!
It’s been 10 months since Tipper joined our family, and she has been the most wonderful 3-legged addition to our family!! Tipper has put on about 8 lbs. since we adopted her, and she is pure muscle! Tipper and our other dog Tug are the best of friends, and she is very gentle with our cats. Tipper loves each of our kids, but seems to have a special relationship with our toddler. Tipper is super laid-back, incredibly sweet, and loves snuggling with us. Her favorite activities are sunning herself outside on the patio, then getting in the pool to cool off. She also loves sleeping on the couch (a lot), car rides, and has finally discovered dog toys and how to play fetch!
We did a “Dog DNA” test on Tipper and found out that she is part Boston Terrier/ Staffordshire/ Boxer – bully breeds are the best!! We are so thankful to have Tipper in our family; she is truly the sweetest dog we have ever had! – Brooke Martin
