Piper is a smiling, loving, bubbly, attentive, 38lb mixed breed with a passion for tennis balls. It’s more than a passion really, it is a mission. She will retrieve, just about anything, but mostly tennis balls, and then sit patiently, waiting to play the game with you. Piper is a staff favorite and was returned to Mountain Humane for some behaviors that over 160+ days at the shelter, have been the focus of her training.
While Piper has made some dog friends, she can be selective about her buddies. She’s not at her best at a fence or barrier with passersby and can be overly concerned about meeting new people. The first few days in a home, she has shown some separation anxiety, but this is common amongst shelter dogs in general.
Piper has shown significant improvement while in the shelter. She is attentive and knows all the basics, house-trained, is happy in an apartment or home, leaves your stuff alone, and doesn’t resource guard. We know her perfect family is out there, and here’s what they might look like: A family…
-with teens who will continue her training.
-who helps Piper stay focused and comfortable on walks when she sees unfamiliar people.
-where she is the only pet, although she could make doggy friends if properly introduced.
-who is committed to walking Piper on a leash, especially when other dogs are around.
-who understands that every pup is an individual with different needs while on the road to finding their best self.
Piper’s foster or adopter will receive the undying devotion of a loving dog and training support from Mountain Humane whenever needed. Are you Piper’s Unicorn? Give us a call at 208.788.5341 to find out.
