Campbell Patch reader Deb Codiroli is asking the community for help in locating Pippi, a small rescue dog that disappeared from her foster home in San Jose last week.
Pippi is a 14-pound female that appears to be a miniature Aussie/Chihuahua mix with no tail. In a posting on Campbell Patch, Codiroli described Pippi as skittish around people but said she loves other dogs and might approach a person if they were walking a dog. Pippi has been spotted wandering near the Campbell/San Jose border.
The dog was recently saved by the St. Francis Animal Protection Society rescue group from a San Jose animal shelter and was living at a foster home is San Jose’s Willow Glen area.
A Facebook page called Find Pippi South Bay has been set up for volunteers to post updates about the search. Volunteers are asking that if anyone sees Pippi or knows of her whereabouts, please call 408-637-1282 or 617-543-5076.
