Piper lives in the Ellenbrook area with her owner Samantha Dukelow where she enjoys her favourite walk down Alban Way and meeting other local dogs.

Samantha said: “She is a very energetic and loving puppy, who is friendly to everyone that she meets, even the postmen love to say hello to her and give her a fuss.”

Piper attends Bishops Veterinary Surgery in Parkhouse Court.

Samantha added: “They are absolutely brilliant. Piper enjoys actually going to the vets.”

The pooch even has Instagram so people can follow her journeys: @piperminidachshund
