Pepper is a middle-aged Dalmatian girl that our vets believe is about 8 yrs old. She is very active and healthy, and is loose in her foster home with a dozen dogs ranging in size from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane. There are also a number of cats, but Pepper pays little attention to them.

She has been spayed, is heartworm negative, and is up to date on all vaccinations. Pepper is a very sweet, friendly, affectionate, mature lady. Unlike many of the dogs that come into rescue, Pepper has obviously been well cared for and very quickly slipped right into the house-dog routine.

Pepper was a total lady at the vet's office and everyone loved her. Even though one of the vaccinations caused her some pain, she endured the rest of them, and the blood-drawing, with grace and goodwill. Her foster mom was able to Dremel her toenails. Pepper wasn't thrilled at first, but patiently put up with the noise & vibration, never growled or tried to get away, nor even had an unkind thought while this was going on.

Pepper instantly obeys the "Sit" command, and "Down." She isn't even slightly skittish about sudden movements near her head, so she has almost certainly never been struck or mistreated. She is very intelligent, learns quickly, and is very social with other dogs. She walks well on a leash and is housebroken. She enjoys being in a crate, though normally she is loose in the house. She is a big fan of food and treats. With a handful of treats she would probably enjoy learning all kinds of parlor tricks.

Pepper is very confident and self-sufficient. She loves attention but doesn't demand it constantly. Her foster home does not have any children, but we believe she would be fine around children past the toddler stage -- old enough to not scare or hurt a dog inadvertently.

If you are interested in giving this sweet senior a home of her own, please fill out an application! Pepper is spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on her shots and on flea and heartworm preventative. If you cannot adopt, please consider sponsoring her.
