Piper would love to cuddle with a family.

Piper was born on Nov. 17, 2018 with big ears and a bigger heart. She is a large mixed breed dog weighing 46 pounds. Piper can be shy around new people but has done very well meeting and playing with other dogs. Piper is sweet, gentle, playful and she loves to give kisses, snuggles, and lean against her people. If you are looking for a cuddle buddy, then Piper is for you and she can be found at the Humane Society of St. Joseph County.

Great news - Piper’s adoption fee has been covered by a donor through our Pet Month celebration! Piper’s future family will also receive a voucher for a 4-week training course through GoodPup. This will help get Piper settled in her new home and make her adjustment time an enjoyable experience for everyone. Interested in adopting Piper? Visit the Humane Society’s website and fill out an application today!
