Meet Your Pet of the Week, Miss Piper!

San Andreas, CA… Adopt Me! I’m Piper! Piper (AO55082) – Spayed female Weimaraner mix. About 5 months old, 21 pounds, should be 50-60 pounds at maturity. She will grow to become a beautiful companion. Piper is a sweet and active puppy. She seems to be past her mouthy stage, but as a precaution, we recommend a home with older children only.

Weimaraners are a high-energy breed, needing a lot of interaction with people as well as regular exercise. They are loyal, obedient, and inquisitive, and need activities to prevent destructive behavior.

Piper is intelligent and is learning leash manners while being attentive to her handler. Massages seem to calm her.

Piper shows her maturity by being very respectful of other dogs, male and female, large and small.

A meet ’n greet is required if you have another dog. Since she is spayed, Piper is ready to follow you home.

Animal Services now has a Fee Flexibility Program!
