Hi there! My name is Piper. I’m a little on the scared side right now so please bear with me. My mom and dad took me in from a friend who wanted the best possible life for me, but sadly her work schedule didn’t quiet allow for it. Not much is known about my family before her, and truth be told I don’t remember much either. It had apparently been rough because it has been difficult for me to adjust to my new family. However, after the first few rocky days I am finally opening up and learning how to love and be loved. So why fret on the past when you can look towards the future! I am still shy and quiet at times, but I am warming up very well to my mom and dad. I love to show off my new tricks like ‘Sit’ and ‘Shake’ but I also know what the word ‘Treat’ means and what to do when I hear the word ‘Kennel’. Even though I had a rough start I am constantly checking on mom and dad, following them around the house, and making sure they are ok. Dad fell not long ago and scraped up his elbow. I was a good girl and didn’t mess with his bandage, but every so often I make sure it’s still healing well by giving it a quick sniff. I also love to play games with Mom in the garden. When she’s outside pulling weeds, I like to grab them from her and run around the yard. I also do this with the socks in the house, it’s so much fun! While I am outside, I also make sure the yard is safe from those pesky squirrels. Once one is spotted, I very slowly creep up on them until they notice me, and then the chase is on! I haven’t been able to catch one yet, but some day soon I am hopeful. On the rare occasions I do tend to get bored and become a little destructive, like pulling paper and cardboard out of the waste baskets and tearing them to teeny-tiny pieces, but I am still very much a puppy who is always trying to learn the rules of the house. When there is no paper or cardboard to destroy, I love to chew on my hard rubber Kong toys and my three stuffed geese.
I guess that’s really all for me to say right now, but as I grow and blossom into the beautiful beagle I am I’ll make sure my friends at Acre Hill keeps everyone updated. Until then, if you ever need a quick check up, visit my friends over at Acre Hill. They’ll make sure you’re in tip-top shape for chasing squirrels!
