Pepper's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Pepper's Story...
Sweet, calm and gentle Pepper was on death row at a high-kill north GA animal control facility but got a pardon when we rescued a large group of dogs there. He is such a good boy. He knows basic commands, is easy to walk, is friendly and loving and has that sad hound-dog face.

Pepper is around 4 years young and weighs 45 pounds but need to gain weight. He's got one brown eye and one eye that's part blue and part brown! He sees fine, it's just an unusual color pattern.

Pepper is healthy but has a case of heartworms which we'll see him through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from Pepper. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Pepper is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows she's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.

Email Homelesspetsfoundation@gmail.com or call 770-971-0100 for more info. Or fill out an adoption application, found at www.homelesspets.com/adoption-form.

Adoption fees include spaying/neutering, micro-chipping, vaccinations up to date at the time of adoption, one free check-up at Town & Country main vet clinic within 14 days of adoption and a free session with Tenasity dog trainers!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pepper, a Marietta Hound (Unknown Type)/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Boxer for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Boxer dog from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marietta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type)/Boxer breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
