Piper may only be 5lbs, but her personality is enormous! A smart little Chihuahua originally from an animal shelter, she  was brought to Dawn and Rudy’s lives by way of Waggytail Rescue, an animal rescue non-profit. Piper is well known for her magical healing abilities—one cuddle with her will chase all your blues away! She is a bundle of energy that makes everyone smile, especially when she balances on her hind legs and “claps” her paws together to get your attention - a trick she made up herself!
