(Palmetto, Fla.)–Have you seen the four-minute, animated short that’s taking the world by storm?
An unbelievable 100,000,000 of our old and new friends around the globe are singing the praises of Pip!
We’ve tallied up the views on YouTube as well as several major social media sites all over the globe, and our little underdog, Pip, has reached One Hundred Million Views (and still growing!).
AND, Pip has also begun winning awards from film festivals…The Oniros Film Awards have chosen Pip as a November 2018 selection for “Best Animation.” The Best Shorts Competition just awarded Pip its “Award of Excellence Special Mention: Animation,” as well.
“Southeastern Guide Dogs is so proud of the sensational response we’ve gotten to the small dog with the big dream,” says CEO Titus Herman. “The tail wagging story about this furry puppy has won the hearts of so many and helped spread the word of how our superhero dogs save the day, every day, for people with vision loss and veterans with disabilities.”
Just like the “real” dogs that are bred, born, raised and trained at Southeastern Guide Dogs, Pip embodies the hope, spunk and devotion that characterizes our elite canines.
A little goldador named in honor of the celluloid Pip is currently making her way through the two-year program of training, guided by her loving puppy raiser.
You can follow the further adventures of the “real” Pip here.
**Pip is available for interviews and media appearances. Please contact us today for a Piptastic story opportunity!
