Piper 2017

Hi everyone, my name is Piper and I have been in my foster home for a few weeks now.  I am a very sweet pocket boxer who loves to play and give kisses.  At first I did well with the resident dogs, but then I got a bit growly and they didn’t like that so now we stay separated.  We do see each other through the baby gate and I give kisses, but foster mom said it’s best that we just stay apart.  I am having surgery Friday 6/2 to be spayed and then I will be ready to go to my forever home.  I am super excited to get my very own family.
