Piper is a 7 month old female Spaniel/Pointer cross.

Piper was one of seven puppies abandoned in a cardboard box and left to fend for themselves. Their tiny little cries caught the attention of someone walking nearby, who was shocked to find the puppies and took them to the local shelter.

Sadly, the puppies had been separated from their mother but by chance one of the shelter dogs experienced a phantom pregnancy and she accepted the litter as her own. Without her, they might not have survived.

Piper is the most Pointer looking puppy from the litter. She is absolutely stunning and has the most sweet, curious and cheeky personality.

All of the puppies in this litter have a shyness about them, but Piper is one of the more confident and curious pups, and you can tell she is really trying her hardest to trust new people.

Piper is great with her siblings and really enjoys their company. Due to their slight nervousness, we’re looking for homes with other dogs for the pups, as we think their confidence will really take a hit if they’re the only resident dog in the household.

Piper looks to her siblings for comfort, and another settled dog that she can observe, learn from and cuddle up with would be perfect for her.

Based on her breed mix, Piper is looking for a moderately active lifestyle. As her confidence grows, so will her cheeky puppy behaviours, so it’s important her new family have the time and patience to raise and train a puppy, to help her become a balanced and sociable adult dog.

She will need a gentle introduction to a companion lifestyle, but we think once she knows she’s safe and has settled into a proper routine, she’ll make brilliant progress.

Piper has not been tested with cats, and she has not had the opportunity to spend time with young children.

We think that children aged 10+ would be suitable for Piper, but they will really need to give her space to settle in at the beginning, as it will be a huge shock to her system initially. As mentioned, another dog will help throughout that integration into a new lifestyle and environment.

Piper is looking for a home based well outside the city where it’s not too noisy or built up. She would prefer a calm household environment where she can adjust at her own pace, and she would definitely benefit from a home with direct access to a secure garden.

Positive reinforcement training will be super helpful in making Piper feel comfortable – she loves treats! It’ll take a little time for her to slot in, but we just know she’s going to be an absolute joy once settled.

Piper is currently based in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. She is ready to travel once she finds her forever home.
