JACKSONVILLE, FL – Pipistrello is a very unique dog, not just because of his beautiful markings, but because he nearly didn’t survive the birthing process! Pipistrello is a French Bulldog that was born with a rare condition called Merle, which gives him unique markings. But what also makes him special is that he barely made it out of the birthing process and had to be resuscitated twice. Because of this, and his great taste in potato chips, Pipistrello has been chosen as the October 2022 pet of the month winner. For submitting this photo, Matt and Diane Waters, formerly of Utica, can look forward to receiving a sampler box of delicious Better Made Snack Food products!

“Pipistrello and was the runt of the litter and no one wanted him despite his very rare color,” says Matt. “My wife fell in love immediately and we took him home at first site. He is now a very healthy, happy, and fun loving dog who loves to cuddle and be held. My wife does not like it, but he has had some Better Made chips that “may have fallen on the floor” and whenever he hears a “crunch” he comes running.”
