From Pepper's foster mom:
Pepper is a large dog weighing approximately 62 lbs, and true to the breed, she's very protective. She's spending time around young children, and is calm and gentle with everyone. Unless you're a squirrel, then look out! Also, Pepper cannot live in a house with cats. She will chase them and we don't know what will happen if she gets a hold of one.
She's learning to walk on a leash and is picking up basic manners very quickly. She can sit and will wait for her food. She is house broken and respectful when inside. She's happy sit close by and keep a watchful eye on her foster mom all day.
Pepper currently has separation anxiety, which is to be expected after her world was turned upside down. We are working on crate training her, but she's got a long way to go. She will do best with someone that can spend a lot of time with her. She would also love a dog friend to hang out with since she's used to having her brother around.
