Piper — Therapy

Charity Partner: PAWS for People
Location: Chesapeake, Virginia

Piper is love, fun, family, smart, friend & Therapy Dog. Piper’s momma was found on the side of a small town road skinny & pregnant and not wanting to leave the mate that was hit by a car & was deceased on that road side. Momma was saved by a Good Samaritan and taken to a local vet where she was looked over and cleaned up from living on the streets for a while. One of the vet tech’s took momma to her house to wait on some babies to be born. 10 days later babies were born. Piper stayed with her momma until she was 8 weeks old. I adopted her when she was about 12 weeks old. I don’t know what it was but deep down I knew Piper would be a great Ambassador and Therapy Dog. So many times I hear that Pit Bull type of dogs are born mean, vicious, dangerous, while Piper is showing that they are not the dangerous dogs that everyone seems to think that they are. She’s a Canine Good Citizen, an Urban Canine Good Citizen and a Registered Therapy Dog where she goes out in her community to show how great dogs like her are. She visits hospitals, nursing homes showing love and compassion to everyone she sees and meets.
