Our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped.
Pepper is a very affectionate and people-oriented person. She loves to give kisses and is a true velcro dog.
She is housebroken and crate trained though she is trusted to roam free in a gated off part of my house. She is well past the destructive puppy phase so doesn’t get into anything she shouldn’t.
She is shy and timid in new situations and is very submissive to other dogs. She gets along well with a male and female Doberman in my home though I believe she would be happiest as an only pup where she can be the center of attention.
For the most part, Pepper does very well on leash. She finds the sight of squirrels and rabbits very stimulating so can sometimes have a hard time shaking off that excitement while out on a walk. I have not seen her to be reactive to other people and dogs on leash.
Pepper took her time coming out of her shell when I first brought her home. Her new family will need to be patient as she acclimates to a new setting yet again when she is adopted.
Pepper didn’t have any real interest in eating a full meal for the first 4-5 days but eventually came around as she settled in more.
Pepper does not like feel very comfortable on hardwood or tile floors and would need help from area rugs and runners to confidently get around.
She has learned how to better navigate around areas that she has less traction on but may need to start over with mastering this in her new home.
Pepper has spent her whole life thus far with an elderly woman who recently passed away. With nowhere to go, DARE stepped in to give Pepper a new life. Pepper’s previous owner didn’t have the opportunity to fully socialize Pepper so it’s important for Pepper’s future family to be mindful of this and take things slow when introducing Pepper to new experiences.
Pepper is very smart and curious and already knows several commands like “sit”, “down”, and “paw”.
Pepper rides well in the car, she finds the experience to be a little scary but she is quiet and well mannered, staying put on her dog bed.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
