Hello world! Are you looking for a dapper, cuddly fellow to share you blanket with? My name is Pepper, and I am a stunning 8-year-old Dachshund who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I look like a one-of-a-kind, 8-pound abstract painting with my dapple-patterned fur, and my personality is definitely one-of-a-kind, too! I will also keep you smiling with my toothy grin!

My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from a local suburban shelter after I was found a stray and my previous owners never claimed me. I live the comfortable, spoiled life in my foster home now, and I cant wait to settle into my forever home soon! Could that be with you? I am a dog who enjoys the calm, leisurely lifestyle and nothing makes me happier than having a nice blanket to burrow into so I can take a comfy, cozy nap. Even though I am a couch (and bed) potato, I also enjoy long, leisurely walks through the neighborhood with my foster momma! And I love to follow my doggie foster brother all around the house like his shadow. He is a smaller dog like me, and I think it would be fun to have another dog friend to hang with if you already have one!

I have pretty great house manners, too. Since I am older, I have learned already how to live well in a house and definitely soak up the comforts of a nice home! I am fully potty trained, and know a few commands. I don't really like to be crated, but that is ok because when my foster momma goes to her full-time job, I just need a few blankets to tunnel into and I nap the day away while she is gone! Don't tell momma, but sometimes I sneak up to her bed and relax there while she is gone; I am so clever that I bet she doesn't even know I do it! (Note from foster momma: Pepper isn't as sneaky as he thinks he is and I usually catch him mid-snooze there all the time!) More than anything, I just want a home where I can be happy and relax with my favorite people under a mountain of blankets! If that sounds like your dream life, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them you would like some Pepper to spice up your life!

Snuggles and kisses,
Pepper
