Beautiful Pepper is a tall, slender girl who loves people and enjoys being the center of attention. She walks well on a leash, but she loves running in a big fenced yard off leash. Chasing tennis balls is one of her favorite activities and, along with brisk walks, is a good way to give her daily exercise.
Pepper has excellent house manners. She is reliably house trained and does not destroy anything when given free roam inside. Even though she loves active play outside, she is calm and well-behaved when in the house. Pepper is a little shy with strangers, but with her own humans, Pepper is very affectionate.
Because this pretty girl is a very social, people-oriented dog, she would not be happy in a home where she is left alone for long hours every day. She needs humans around. Pepper gets along with the eight Shelties in her foster home and enjoys running with them in their huge fenced yard. But these dogs are not substitutes for attention from humans.
Pepper has had a thorough veterinary checkup and appropriate tests since she came into NVSR. She is up to date on all vaccinations and was spayed years ago. Her vet pronounced her to be in exceptionally good health.
Pepper is now ready to look for her forever home. A good-sized fenced yard is essential for Pepper. She prefers older kids who know how to interact calmly with dogs. She will be happiest in a home where someone is around much of the time and willing to play with her. She would be fine with another dog, but she could probably be quite content as the only dog where she could enjoy all the attention.
This lovely dog came into rescue only because her family is being posted overseas and can’t take her along. We promised to find her the wonderful new home she deserves.
