Piper is a cheerful little guy who loves cuddling and playing with toys, but hates the outdoors. The sweet boy lost his home when his owner died and is looking for a new family that likes to give long belly rubs and take short walks. Piper is a very efficient walker and has no interest in being outdoors any longer than is absolutely necessary. He'll need a family that is committed to playing and exercising indoors -- especially because he really, really loves food. Piper wouldn't mind living in apartment or a townhouse and won't entertain your neighbors with his vocal stylings. Piper seems to like every human he meets and is quick to invite himself into every lap he finds -- though he'd prefer a home without young children. He isn't really interested in other dogs (they can't rub his belly), so, while he's willing to consider siblings, he'd do best as an only dog. We think Piper might be a Bichon/Maltese mix because he's on the smaller side and his super-soft fluff is more beachy waves than tiny ringlets. Whatever breed he is, he's adorable and can't wait to find a family of his own. After coming to rescue, Piper jumped off the couch and injured his leg...... he is now recovering from surgery for repair to a torn cruciate, displaced knee and twisted tibia. He will need light exercise only.
