Piper is a beautiful 43 lb collie mix, who has been with us since she was a puppy.  Her mom was a pure bred rough collie but no one knows who dad was. She's 9 years old and in great health - she's frequently mistaken for a much younger dog because she is so full of joy!  Unfortunately, Piper is not good with children and we had a baby last July so we recently made the very difficult decision to rehome Piper.  We really, really wish we could keep her because she is such an awesome dog and a member of our family but it's just not working with the baby.

Piper is looking for a home where she can be the only dog and can chill with her people regularly. She likes to go for hikes but is also very happy just hanging out with her people being lazy. She went to work in an office with one of us for years and years and adores getting attention from adults. Belly rubs and rump scratches are her favorites.

She can be leash reactive and it's 50/50 whether she will get along with other dogs, so it's best to rehome her where she can be the only dog. She needs an experienced dog owner that can be consistent and firm with her when she gets anxious or nervous.  She has a high prey drive so may not do well in a home with cats. 

She is spayed and current on her vaccinations.

Our preference would be to keep Piper within a couple hours of the Bay Area but we'd be willing to drive her further for the right home.  Please email denhampiper@gmail.com if you're interested to discuss whether Piper would be a good match for your family.  A re-homing fee of $150 will apply.
