Look which cutie is available for adoption….it’s Piper! She is a 2.5-year-old little girl weighing only 21lbs. Piper came from a family with young children who surrendered her after she developed weakness in both her hind legs. She was put on strict crate rest and with time has regained her mobility.
Piper lived with multiple children in her previous home with no reported issues. In her foster home, she has lived with another Frenchie and a large dog. She’s very playful and friendly with the Frenchie. She is intimidated by large dogs and was assertive upon meeting the large resident dog. She would do best in a home with dogs her own size. Piper is energetic, happy, playful, loving, and cuddly. She loves being active and enjoys playing and going for walks. She is very intelligent and would thrive pursuing trick training or obedience.
She is housebroken, crate trained, and leash trained. She loves both plush squeaky toys and chew toys such as yak chews and antlers. She also enjoys work to eat toys. Piper is fed separately in her foster home, though. We recommend this being continued in her forever home since this is what she is accustomed to now.
Piper would thrive in a situation where she is truly one of the family...accompanying her people on outings like to restaurants or breweries. She would also do best in a home where she’s allowed on the furniture and allowed to sleep on the bed as she enjoys being close to her loved ones. Moderate to long leashed walks as well as snuggling on the couch are some of her other wishes in a forever home.
Currently, she lives with someone who works from home. She is content to chew on a toy or antler while her foster parent works but does prefer to be within eyesight of her people. She simply wants to be where the action is and would do best in a home where she is not left home alone for extended periods. If you’re looking for a Frenchie that wants to go out on the town and then come home to binge watch Netflix on the sofa, Piper would be a perfect match.
Given her previous back issues, Piper should not be allowed to jump on or off furniture. She also should be carried up or down stairs. She has no apparent residual mobility issues currently, but these actions will help prevent future issues.
Piper is a loving, intelligent, and active Frenchie that deserves a home where she is part of the action. She thrives with love, attention, activity, and positive reinforcement-based training. She will make anyone smile with her grin and wagging tail.
