Piglet loves being right by her foster mom's side whether she's going to the bathroom, watching tv on the sofa or it's time to go to bed. She is a hard core cuddler! She is worried with new people and needs time to go at her own pace to grow comfortable with them and trust them. She's a bit like a sassy cat in that she loves to cuddle, but it's on her terms and will growl if she is feeling overwhelmed by your affection. She is perfect in her communication and just backing off from what you were doing, and taking things slower, will help her gain the trust she needs. She wants to trust and just needs to know she is safe with you.
Piglet is good with cats! She currently lives with 4 cats peacefully. As far as dogs, she co-exists with the other dog in her foster home and has previously lived with 2 other dogs. She is not easy to introduce to new dogs, guards toys from other dogs and will growl at other dogs, just like people, to let them know to back off. She also likes to have all the human attention and will butt in when other dogs are being pet and will try to back them away from the human and wedge herself in the middle. Piglet really does think this is her world and we are all just living in it.
What is awesome about Piglet is that she loves to play fetch with abandon, will toss a toy around like a cat and bounce around like a puppy. She is a world champion cuddler and loves hanging out anywhere you're hanging out. She is great in the car as well! She has been in her foster home for 3 months now and every day she gains more trust to be snuggled, to let my arm rest on her backside when she is laying next to me, to let me check her teeth (she just had a dental) and let me wipe her down if it rains.
Her ideal home would be one with a backyard for her to play in. A home with no other dogs or super tolerant dogs and a savvy owner. Cats would be totally fine! An adopter who has patience and really gets to know her and lets her learn to trust at her own pace. Because when Piglet trusts you, you will be her whole world, her safe place, her best friend and her refuge. She is a diva, but one worth the time and energy because her love for those in her inner circle is pretty hard core.
She is house trained, healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and micro-chipped. If you're interested in meeting and possibly adopting Piglet please contact her foster mom Kat at email@example.com.
