Happy Tails: Piper's Story

Pipers Story

Sometimes a happy ending takes a little longer. Piper was one of a litter of tiny half-dead puppies rescued from a freezing January roadside by good people. Our director of operations Wendy fostered them herself, and while baby Ruby sadly didn't make it, both Piper and her brother Aspen got happily adopted. Or so we thought.

Unfortunately, Piper's home turned out not to be a good fit, and she came back to us cringing and terrified,not knowing what was going on., or who she could rely on. We did everything we could to build up her confidence and sense of security, and then...

... A wonderful couple adopted her! Suzanne posted an adorable picture of Piper relaxing in her new home on our facebook page, writing: "Piper says hiya from her new home. Piper was great in the car, and came into our home like she was always there. She has been silly, funny, sweet and loving....kisses and playing. No signs of being afraid at all. We are thrilled that we have her, she is helping us fill a void left by our beloved 15 yr old Chloe that is over the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for trusting us with Piper, she is loved ..."
