Every Wednesday we feature a different pet that needs a new forever home here in the Basin from Lonestar Sanctuary For Animals. Sometimes it's a dog, sometimes it's a cat. They haven't had any guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, or snakes---yet. But you never know!

Meet Pippin!

This super chill amazingly sweet old boy is looking for a nice quiet home to spend his golden years!  Pippin is a ten-year-old Corgi mix.  At 26 pounds, he isn't too small or too big!  He loves to run around outside in his yard and is very selective with his canine companions.  He does have one dog friend here that he plays with.  At the Sanctuary every dog gets yard time in the morning and everyone goes out in shifts.  Pippen is very smart and waits for a yard to empty and then runs into it the minute his yard gate is opened instead of going back to his kennel!  Most of the time staff lets him have his extra time because he is such a good dog!  Pippen needs an adult household as he isn't comfortable with children.  He would make a great companion dog to sit and watch tv with, take on walks through the neighborhood, and may even enjoy the occasional short ride to Starbucks for a Pup-o-chino!  If you think Pippen sounds like the perfect chill pup for you, come meet him during the Sanctuary's visitation hours!  You may just find your best friend!

Once home, remember the rule of three: three days to decompress, three weeks to get used to your routine and home, and three months to feel completely at home.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
