My story

I have named this fellow Peppy. The name fits his personality to a "T". He is a high-spirited, exuberant "on the move" kind of dog with places to go, people to see and things to do! Peppy is a Carolina Dog mix that weighs 60 pounds, is approx 2 years old and is not neutered. He arrived on 8/9 as a stray at the Mesquite Animal Shelter. He walks ok on a leash and I did not note any aggression toward the other dogs we passed. However, it is a good idea to ask the staff for a dog test if interested in Peppy. Peppy would need a person or family with an active lifestyle. During the photo shoot he ran and played in the yard, leaping and bounding with glee!! Peppy would need daily enrichment--walks, jogs, play etc. He also could use obedience training in order to fit in with his forever family better. Since he is treat-motivated, it seems that he would be easy to train. He does not seem to know any commands and wasn't especially interested in toys or balls. Please help this playful boy out of the shelter and on the way to his forever home
