Arrival Story:
Piggy was in a local shelter and I would visit him every Saturday. I just gave him treats and some toys. I decided to help place him since he was there so long. I got a few "inquires" but nothing solid. Then I got the dreaded call, if he wasn't adopted by the end of the week, he'd be PTS. I couldn't let that happened, so I took him home and adopted him after he had been in the shelter for 7 months. He came to my house severely dog aggressive, but with a lot of time, patience and love, he outgrew it and now enjoys his play groups. He has really shown me how wonderful this breed can be!!!

Bio:
People always ask "Piggy??" Wondering why he was named that. First he came with that name from the shelter, but I later learned that Piggy always SQUEALS with delite. I have never heard him bark, just squeal. And if you're not rubbing his butt, he'll start to SCREAM at you in this high pictched noise that one day will shatter all the windows in the house!! Piggy was the "free" shelter dog who has allergies to just about everything. He needs to get allergy shots every 10 days, take special medication to help with his scratching and needs to be on an all natual, raw diet. But he's so sweet and cute, I'd do anything for him!! Piggy is proud to have his TT, CGC and TDI.
