Piper came to us back in September from a shelter in Saginaw. She had been surrendered by her previous owner for reasons unknown to us. What we do know is that Piper is a very sweet, loving girl. She craves affection and love. She wants nothing more than to be cuddled by your side. She is extremely loyal and loving. She's intelligent and eager to please her humans. She is well behaved and pretty mellow but she does love to run around the yard and chase a ball. She enjoys going on walks and playing with other nice, submissive dogs. She is a pretty solid, stocky girl, and due to this reason, we suggest that her forever home has no small animals, as she gets bursts of energy and she will run around the house being a goofy girl and she could hurt them unintentionally because of her size.
We have discovered that Piper gets nervous and uncomfortable around young children. Her foster mom believes that it is very possible that she may have been mistreated by children in the past and for this reason, we have decided it is best that she does not go to a home with kids younger than 12. She has been around children and initially is ok with them, but the longer she is by a child, the more uncomfortable she becomes.
