Rescue Story

Swiper came into GEARS’ care as an owner surrender and, after time spent in a loving foster home, is now ready to find her furever home!

My Bio

Hi there! I’m your new best friend Swiper, but my foster parents call me Pipes for short. I have a passion for cuddles and am a natural at getting anyone I meet to give me butt scritches. I am very outgoing and love everyone and everything I meet. Except for the vacuum – I will run and hide when you turn on that terribly loud sucky machine. I sleep through the night and don’t need to be crated. In fact, I much prefer to sleep cuddled up near you or on my bed beside you.  

I’d like to tell you that I’m not just a cute face; I’ve got some pretty impressive tricks up my furry sleeve and will do anything for a treat or a piece of my kibble! I can sit, lay down, come, stay and even give you my paw for a friendly shake. These tricks aren’t just for show, they’re my way of showing how eager I am to please you. I love learning new things and pick stuff up very quickly. Most recently I’ve been learning to take things gently. It’s a work in progress when I’m excited but as soon as my foster parents say “nice” I tend to remember.

I’m a potty training prodigy which means I’m a responsible and well behaved pup. Every once in a while when my foster parents come home, I cannot contain my joy for seeing them and I accidentally tinkle just a little bit. I promise I don’t mean to and am working on it and can confidently say it only happens when I have really BIG feelings. So please don’t get mad at me if I do this when I see you!

Apart from playing with all of my toys, I love exploring outside and would do best with a backyard to play in. The dog park is my favourite place to meet friends, and my foster mom says my recall is excellent! I have a dog and a cat in my foster home with me and I’m great with both of them. I respect the cat’s boundaries even though I do wish she would play with me more, and the dog is my bff! I would do very well in a home with another furry friend, but could be your only companion as well. I’ve met lots of kids and adults and literally love them all so much. I’m looking for a forever family that can give me as much love as I can give them (plenty of cuddles and kisses). If you’re looking for the goobest of gorls and your loyal companion, look no further! 

Please make me yours forever!

Love, Swiper (aka Pipes) 💖
