Piper has had some sad times in her life. She was a mum with young pups, she was under-weight and not getting all the things she needed in life. However, one day her luck changed when a lovely lady took her into care and looked after her while she raised her pups. Piper was a fantastic and nurturing mum, however the pups have all gone now and Piper needs a home of her own.
Piper is a friendly girl, but may develop some guarding tendencies once she is comfortable in her new home, so she needs a sensible owner who will ensure she is well fenced and introduced to visitors properly. She's been on some walks with us now and although she pulls at first, she settles quickly and loves to splash through puddles and sniff all the cool new smells, stopping every now and then to check in and lean on your leg for a cuddle.
As with all Pound Hounds Rescue dogs, Piper must be allowed inside the home (including to sleep) so she can really be a part of the family. She will also require a comfy bed, quality food, and regular flea and worm treatments.
