Welcome to our newest Misfit. Piper is an extremely shy girl. She has significantly debilitating fears and at the present is not comfortable being handled very much. She is scared of new places, reacts to noises and sudden movements and is somewhat shut down. Piper also has serious health concerns including a heart-worm diagnoses. Luckily for Piper, she has landed with one of our most experienced and patient fosters. Piper's heart-worm treatment will take several months to complete. During that time she will need to have painful injections and be restricted to complete crate rest. Any exercise or movement can cause fatal consequences when undergoing heart-worm treatments. These months of medical care will give her foster family the much needed time to gain her trust and help guide her to feel more comfortable and encourage her confidence to build. As with all our Misfits, we will share her progress weekly in our Friday Night Fill In but remember, Piper is an introvert and we will not rush her so you'll need to be patient too as it may take a while for her to be ready for a photo-shoot.
