|Rescue Me ID: 16-07-12-00622Pepper (male)|
Shih Tzu Age: Puppy
|Personality:|| Average Energy, Average Temperament |
|Health:|| Neutered, Vaccinations Current | [Singing] 'A Pepper is an interesting breed, and a patient leader's what I need. Puppy-mill dogs do say, only time can heal the pain away.' My foster mom sings me the Dr. Pepper jingle . . . 'I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper, she's a Pepper, we're a Pepper, wouldn't you like to be a Pepper to!' Obviously, my name is Pepper. I am a 12lb 2 year-old male Shi Tzu. And, I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. As I allude to, I am the product of a puppy-mill. I lacked a real family, socialization or even, love. I struggle with fear and anxiety. But, I am not a hopeless case. I am a very hopeful case. I just need a gentle, patient human to give me ... (Read More)a chance at a normal life. I'm not going to lie, it won't be easy. But, it also won't be impossible. The good people at Potter's Angels Rescue have experience with dogs like me and will be happy to discuss my issues and how to best help me overcome them. I know the word, 'Down.' I like popcorn. I observe the one-year-old grandchild from a safe distance, but I don't run away. I generally keep a distance from all people. But, I am beginning to play with some of the dogs that I share my foster home with-so, that's progress. I used to only watch them, but now, I am happy to see them and I wag my tail and I play . . . I play! I am housetrained and I have free roam during the day and am let into a fenced in yard to do my business; at night I sleep in a crate. My foster mom was encouraged when I allowed her to pick me up and I sat on her lap while she rubbed my ears . . . I even made a cute face for her, she said my expressions are adorable. [singing] 'My name is Pepper don't you see, that it's the perfect name for me. My fur's a mix of black and white and only love can make my future bright! I'm a mopin' Pepper, hopin' Pepper, wary Pepper, hairy Pepper. Wouldn't you like to adopt a Pepper too?'
