Piper is a beautiful senior girl (11-13 yrs) who loves a warm bed, attention from her foster mom and meal times!
She gets up to meet her foster mom when she comes home from work and loves being scratched under her chin, on her lower back and loves kisses on her head. She is excellent at kissing back!
She loves to cuddle but doesn’t quite know how to initiate it yet. Being on furniture is new to her and she seems uncomfortable so I sit on the floor for cuddles with her right now.
She is fantastic with a leash on and actually seems much more confident when it’s on her.
When she first arrived at her foster home she was very scared of walking from one surface to another, even if it was from hard wood to laminate. She had to be physically guided and shown that she was safe. She is now finding her way outside when the door is open as well as getting back inside all by herself! This is such wonderful progress for her in a short time. She can navigate 3-4 steps at a time and does better going up than down but she can do both.
Piper seems to have no idea about being house trained but she definitely knows that when she is outside it is time to potty. She does not show an obvious cue as to when she has to go outside to potty.
She is only around adults and other dogs. She does fine around other dogs as long as they don’t get in her space. She will growl and bark if they do. She has never bitten another dog. She will try to gently get into other dog bowls during meal time, but with a gentle, “No Piper” she leaves them alone. I do not want to separate her at meal time because she IS learning that she cannot get into other dishes and I want her to master that skill and it appears she will, soon. She is always supervised closely during meal time.
Overall, Piper is a sweet older girl who loves people. She will make a great addition to a quiet home with older children who know how to be respectful toward animals or to an all-adult home.
