You can typically spot him decked out in goggles, earmuffs and a safety vest.  His owner says there's a reason for the get up.

"He's very well equipped," says Brian Edwards.   "The specs are to protect his eyes, they're sunglasses first and foremost.  The earmuffs obviously are for sound when he's close to aircrafts, and the vest is so I can lift him up and do all sorts of cool things with him."

Piper was adopted back in 2012, and began working at the Cherry Capital Airport in 2015.

He doesn't get an actual paycheck for his services, but he is rewarded with plenty of treats.

His owner says Border Collies are working dogs and having a job to do is enough to make Piper happy.
