Available Dogs & Puppies



Piper is a 3 year old, spayed female, Lab mix that weighs 40lbs.

Once Piper settles in and gets to know you she enjoys your attention. This lady would love a calm household with a patient owner willing to work with her. Please read our handouts on working with shy or fearful dogs and contact the behavior department with any questions. Due to her reserved personality, we are asking that Piper goes to a home with no kids. Piper was brought to the shelter because her owner thought Piper needed a home with a fenced in yard. According to the previous owner, Piper has shown teeth and growled at men and women. She also lunges, shows teeth, growls and barks at strangers. The owner noted that Piper charges dogs she does not know and is aggressive. While Piper has been shy at the shelter she has shown no aggression. When introduced to another dog her size Piper was shy. We are asking that she meets all other dogs prior to adoption. This gal will need a patient owner willing to work with her. Piper should not be off leash unless in a securely fenced yard as she may spook and take off.

She is #42032.
