Meet Piglet

Here's what my fosters have to say about me!

"She has come a long way in the past few weeks. At first, she was having accidents in the house, but as we got more used to her schedule and she to ours, I think we have that worked out. She hasn't had any accidents in 2 or three weeks.

She is a velcro dog! She loves to be with her people. She is wary and a little skittish around new people, but seems to quickly warm up with some reassurance. She has a funny personality and is so happy to see us in the morning and wriggles to get petted and a tummy rub before going outside.

She would be a great companion dog for someone who can be home all day and have her around. When I work from home, she curls up on a dog bed by my desk and just hangs out quietly while I work. She's not a yapper or a barker.

Now that she doesn't have to be crated all the time, she is out in the house with us and sleeps in a dog bed at the foot of our bed at night. She is quiet all night long. I do crate her during the day, just because I'm not sure how she would do in the house alone, but either I or a friend, go by at lunch every day to let her out and play with her for an hour to give her a break. Otherwise, when we are there, she is out an on the sofa with us.

She is a chow hound and loves her groceries! She is very food motivated. She has put on some weight and I'm now watching what I feed her so she doesn't get too heavy. She has filled out nicely and her coat is really pretty and sleek. She knows "sit" and we are starting to work on some other commands.

We are now going for walks in the morning and she is really good on a leash. She is also good in the car and last weekend rode quietly for 3 hours out to our ranch where we spent a few days. She was happy to hang out with us and our dog and do a little exploring.

I hope that someone who doesn't want to raise a puppy, but just wants a devoted companion to keep them company, will adopt her."

I have tested heartworm positive. This means I have a parasite and need treatment. While my friends at HSNBA desperately want to help me, the shelter is too stressful an environment to undertake treatment and treatment itself is very expensive. The shelter has a few options to help with treatment, and if I steal your heart you should talk with them and your vet about what my treatment is like.

I am currently in a foster home and not at HSNBA, if you are interested in meeting me, please contact the nice folks at HSNBA so they can put you in contact with my foster family to set up a meet & greet. E-mail HSNBA at adoption@hsnba.org, call us at: (830) 629-5287 or stop by and speak with the folks at HSNBA at 3353 Morningside Dr. to get your information sent over to my foster home. My foster family is the best and can give you more information on me.
