Piper came to us from a shelter with a very poor coat that is missing in multiple areas and VERY itchy skin. We are working on her skin issues with multiple meds, medicated baths and giving her a high quality food with novel protein. We have done bloodwork and found her to be very low thyroid which is easily fixed by a twice daily medication that she will likely be on for life. Piper will also be seeing a dermatologist and may need allergy testing to get to the root of the skin issues.
She is about 3 1/2 years old and, although she appears to be blue, we actually think she is black. She is spayed with natural ears and a docked tail. Although initially nervous with the other Dobes (male and female) in her foster home, she is now learning to play and increasing her energy as well as her curiosity (perhaps partially due to thyroid correction). She LOVES attention and affection and will fall asleep standing with her head on your lap. She loves to chew on bones, nylabone, benebones, etc and is very food motivated. She is house trained and crate trained.
Piper will be ready for her forever home when we can get a handle on her skin issues and she’s heading in the right direction.
