Life as a puppy mill dog is now over for Piper, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Piper is 6 years old and she weighs 17lbs.  Currently in a foster home, we are told that she loves other dogs and would do best with someone who can be home with her  most of the time. She is still working on her house training but has come a long way in the time she has been in her foster home. Her toys are a comfort to her, she will carry them in her mouth and loves to snuggle with them. Piper is not leash trained and definitely needs a fenced yard.

As most King Charles Cavaliers, Piper has a heart murmur and was seen by a specialist in February. After running some tests she was found to have a slightly enlarged heart but was cleared for her spay. They were not overly concerned about her heart murmur and she isn’t in heart failure. They said at some point down the road if her family wants to have an echocardiogram of her heart they could tell if she needs medication, but they did not feel it was necessary at this time or if she will ever need it.

If  you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to adoptions@caninerescue.org. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.

Piper is kindly sponsored by Steve and Diana Lucas in memory of Zeus, Sharon Perry, Craig Cassaday, Charlie Fisher, Chelsea Barber, Dan and Amy Courtine in honor of Holly and Xander, Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, and Rebecca Wood. Thank you!
