Pepper

Meet Pepper!

 

She's a 5-year-old dachshund mix. Her sister recently passed away and her mom and dad got divorced and could no longer care for her, so she has been through a lot of changes in a very short period of time. When she first came to her foster home, she was terrified, but she has begun to open up and show glimpse of the wonderful girl that she is. She is great with foster mom and her 3 kids (15, 17, 23), but she is obsessed with her foster dad! She is also good with all the other dogs in her foster home, both big and small. 

 

Pepper looked for her dad for several days, but she has finally resigned herself to the fact he will not be coming back for her ☹ She is still mourning the loss of her family, so her new adopter(s) will need to be patient and willing to give her time to come around and blossom. 

 

Her new owner will have to pay attention to her nails, which are very long and had previously not been cut. They will be a process. She's an overall good girl, very overweight (she probably weighs about 45 pounds, but has at least 10 more pounds to lose) so she will need to keep up on her strict weight loss regimen. She's very, very loving, and really craves attention. Potty trained 100%. Current on vaccinations and spayed. 

 

If you are looking for a new best friend, Pepper may just be your girl. Pepper is currently fostering in Woodland Park, NJ and her adoption fee is $375.00.
