Hi, I'm Pepper! I'm a 2-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. My life started out great in Longview, TX. My brother Neo and I had a wonderful human who loved and cared for us. Sadly, late last year, our human died. After that, Neo and I were passed between family members. Unfortunately, they all had families that were not suitable for two large dogs, and none of them had a fenced yard that would provide a safe place for us to stay. Neo and I were often seen wandering the streets. We ended up at the shelter and family members claimed us once, but the next time we were picked up by animal control, no one came for us. I spent nearly a month in the shelter and it was getting close to being an urgent situation, before AAT stepped up and took Neo and I under their wing. Now I'm in the big city and I think I'm gonna like my new lifestyle!

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.

If you are interested in meeting Pepper, please complete an application on the Animal Allies of Texas website.

About Animal Allies of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site for specific locations and times.

Cats must not be declawed. All pets must be spayed/neutered if this has not been done prior to adoption. Adopter must agree to a home visit prior to adoption. Adopter MUST agree to return pet to AAT if he/she can no longer keep the pet or if AAT deems it to be in the best interest of the pet. An adoption agreement detailing these and other requirements must be signed to finalize adoption.
