This beautiful black lab is Pepper, a 2 year old female that came to us from Alabama in search of a great home. Pepper was a very lucky girl when she was taken in by a kind hearted animal rescuer down south, when Pepper's time ran out in the shelter. We were contacted to take her and are so happy to have this sweet girl! Pepper is just your perfect little lady....she is so kind, gentle, loving and affectionate. She absolutely adores people and can't control her happy-butt dance when you go to take her for a walk. Pepper walks well on a leash and is very polite. She also enjoys bounding around our exercise yard and is happy to go after any toy you throw for her. Pepper is much more interested in having fun and getting attention than she is in getting treats. She gets along very well with other dogs but would prefer a home with no cats. Let's show Pepper how great life can be and give her that good home that she's dreaming of! 1/20/13 File#22233
