Tiapa (roepnaam: Pippa) We willen de vrijwilligers die voor Tiapa hebben gezorgd in Rusland en de vrijwilligers van MyMartin graag bedanken voor de geweldige zorg aan deze lieve honden. We zetten die zorg met veel liefde en plezier door in ons gezin. Tiapa was meteen op haar gemak bij ons thuis. Het klikt ook goed met ons dochtertje, en ze komt zelfs goed overeen met de hond van de buren, waarmee ze door de draad contact zoekt. Ze is nog wel wat schuchter naar vreemden toe en bang om te gaan wandelen tegen dat het donker wordt, maar we hebben alle tijd om de volgende stappen te zetten wanneer zij er klaar voor is. De auto vindt ze dan weer geweldig (wie had dat ooit gedacht), omdat ze weet dat we daarmee naar een groot bos in de buurt rijden voor een fijne wandeling. Hier alvast een update aan de hand van enkele foto’s van de voorbije twee weken.
She is a very tender and calm dog, highly trustful to people, very friendly and sensitive. She normally does not pay much attention to the passersby but may be afraid of a big crowd. She prefers quiet neighbourhoods, but she is not afraid of slow moving cars, but cautious about the traffic. She likes both women and men, yet at the beginning she is rather shy and after feeling comfortable she starts to interact actively. At home she feels herself very comfortable and prefers to stay closer to people, likes to give a paw, touch and contact physically, and sometimes insists on having attention from humans.
She is used to walking out on the leash two times a day. She is friendly to children, interacts with no fear, shows her good attitude, waving her tail and curiously sniffing the child’s face and hands. She is doing good with other female dogs, yet if it’s bigger and acts aggressively she will be scared and try to avoid interaction. She does not show interest in contacting with male dogs, but as well as in case with female dogs it is a matter of size and attitude. She’d rather be scared of aggressive big dog and run away than argue and bark in reply.
She pays absolutely no attention to cats, now in a temporary home she lives with three cats. She keeps calm in the car, but she feels sick during the ride, as she had limited car experience. She went only couple of times to the veterinary for sterilisation, vaccination and health check.
She was saved this summer (August 2020) from a driving school outdoor training facility (auto drome) where she lived along with her brother. They were not hurt there by people, even fed by students and security, but no one was eager to become their owners. Tiapa used to walk around and occasionally she went to unsecure places (near the road), but lucky for her she was noticed by volunteers passing by in the car as she was running across the crossroad. Tiapa and her brother were taken to Moscow, separated in different foster families, after that she was vaccinated and sterilised.
