About Iris

Iris has caught you eye, eh? Well, you have good taste, because this is one extremely sweet and adorable girl. She can start off shy and can be nervous, so a quiet home without young children would be best for her. She will need a slow intro into new home, people, and places to ensure she is comfortable. Once she warms up, though, her loving and affectionate personality starts to show and your heart is sure to melt into a giant puddle. Give Iris a chance and see for yourself how wonderful she truly is.Advanced due to: Shy, will need slow intro to new home, people, and environments

Pay the Piper, and call the tune, for this little miss is waiting for you! Say hello to pretty Piper! Piper came to us as a very pregnant mother all the way from Alabama. Piper raised 8 beautiful puppies, who have all found terrific homes. Now, Piper is ready to find her home as well. Piper is a VERY affectionate girl who is quick to bond with most people. She loves cuddles, and wants to be a lap dog, despite her size. She greets us every morning, with a wiggly run to the door, and some play bows. She has become very comfortable in her temporary home, so she will bark when new people enter the room. We are hoping that this is just a shelter behavior, but if not, she is easily won over with treats. Piper seems to do very well with other animals. She has had lots of playtime with various puppies, adult dogs, even some cats during her stay with us. Piper is housetrained, and likes going outside for walks. She does easily get spooked, so a quiet neighborhood would be best. She likes chewing on Nylabones, and will occasionally play with toys. She is a "stuffie" shredder, so squeakers beware.Piper does have some allergies, that cause her to be pretty itchy. We have had luck with grain-free lamb, and the medication Apoquel (about $75 a month). Her new owners will need to monitor her diet, as she loves food, and will help herself to any food she can find (as her cute curvy waistline proves). She will require regular veterinary care to manage her allergies; this could be expensive. Piper lives in the manager's office, where all her office mates adore her. We think she will fit into a variety of homes. So if you think Piper is as awesome as we do-please ask the front desk to meet her. Special Medical. show less
