Additional Details:

Piper is a very small brindle female pup at only 35lbs. She is 10 months old so probably won't get much larger and is likely to stay exceptionally tiny. She was originally adopted from a shelter so not much is known about her. She has no ear tattoos so can't be identified but looks like she is pure greyhound. Piper is a very friendly confident pup that loves people. She has lived in a home before and was given up because her family didn't know that greyhound puppies NEED a place to run and they didn't have any place for her to play. Greyhound puppies are not calm and laid back like adult greyhounds. They must have a place to play and run and need plenty of exercise like any other puppy. So far Piper has been very well behaved in the house but is an active dog that would love to have other dogs to play with or an active family to play with. She especially loves running and playing with kids and is pretty gentle even though she is pup. She loves balls and toys of all types and is very playful. She does jump up to give hugs and we are working on stopping that. Piper likes to snuggle and must have slept in bed with her former family because she cuddles right up. She loves to get right up in your lap and is small enough to be a lap dog. Piper is very smart and learned how to sit and shake in just a few minutes. She is very food motivated and responds quickly to training if treats are involved. Piper has grown a little since she arrived and has put on 5lbs. She now weighs 40lbs.
