Piper is approximately 4 years old though she still looks like a puppy. She is very petite and beautiful. I sometimes call her "prancer" because she walks/runs like a show dog. The first time I met her she sat down and put her paw up to shake without command. You can tell she has been trained.

Piper is house-trained – no accidents in the house. She has a very sweet disposition with humans young and old alike. She is learning to interact with my other dogs but this is new territory for her.  Piper would do best in a home with no more than one calm, friendly, adult canine sibling.

She comes when I call her without hesitation. She doesn't dig or try to escape from the fenced yard. She has no food aggression. She is the type of dog that eats to live, not lives to eat!!! I wish I could be more like her!! She loves to play outside and plays fetch really well! She calms in the house and loves to cuddle up with a human.

Though I don't make her stay in a crate, she is quite content in one. I leave her to roam freely in the house when I'm at work. She has never chewed on anything...not even bones. I think she is well past the chewing stage of her life.

Piper is really a little doll....she is up-to-date on all vaccinations and has been altered. She needs a wonderful family to live out her sweet life.

UPDATE 8/11

Here is an update on our sweet, sweet little Piper.  She has adjusted very nicely to our home and seems to be enjoying herself.  She has bonded with both of us, but she really loves her dad.  (You can see this one of the new photos.  He went into the house and she laid at the door until he returned.)  She sleeps in her bed all night without a peep, but loves getting into bed with the last person left in the mornings.  She loves the back yard with all the critters and she even discovered the cattle behind our house this past weekend.  She wasn’t sure what to do, so she barked…a lot.  Every time she goes off the porch, she’s in stalk mode, creeping like a cat.  It’s really funny to watch.

We have been working with her on coming back to us and walking on a leash.  She isn’t very obedient with either of these things and I’m sure it’s because of the new smells.  We’ll get there.  David has worked with her mostly (on a check cord) and he is very patient with her.  They work for 10-20 minutes at a time, a couple times a day.

I have attached a few pictures.  You can see she is spoiled rotten already.  She is a great dog and we couldn’t have been more blessed.  Thanks again for your hard work.
