Hi, everyone! My name is Piper, and I'm a very sweet, ~9 year old, 15.5# cocker/shih tzu mix. I love to wag my tiny tail, especially when it's treat time! I enjoy being around people, and I want to please.
Recently, my foster Mom took me to the office with her, and I was a big hit with everyone. I did a lot of work (sleeping that is), so if you're allowed to take me to your job, I'm the perfect dog. I ride very well in the car - I'll curl up on some soft blankets and fall asleep in no time. I do not get up on furniture or on beds at home. I'm very well-behaved at the vet's office. I do my best to charm everyone I meet. I aced my "house-training refresher class" - no accidents at all since my family started taking me out on a schedule. I walk well on a leash, I enjoy playing with toys, but most of all I like to be with people. If you're looking for a great companion, I'm your girl!
Right now, I am being treated for heartworms. I received my first injection at the end of August, and I'll get the last set of injections on Sept 28. I need to be kept calm while I'm recovering. I am counting down the days until I'll be off of all exercise restriction (November). Because I have glaucoma, I'm getting two kinds of eye drops twice a day. I go to the eye vet every 4 months for a full check-up, and every 2 months for a super quick pressure check. Currently, my eyes look great!
If you think I sound like the dog for you, ask about me today!
