|This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.|
Pepper is a sweet older lady between 8-10 years of age. She was found as a stray in Alexandria and has found a safe foster home in Robbinsdale. She has been with me for a week and I have not heard her bark yet, though she does whine sometimes. She is gentle and wants to have me in sight all of the time. She gets along fine with my two residents and has shown no aggression.
The vet said that she has yeast infections in both ears, so has medication for that. She weighs about 58 pounds and is just slightly underweight. She loves food, so that will be no problem. She has scarring on her back left leg and tip of her tail.
The vet said it might have been caused by being kept in an enclosure with no bedding so the leg was rubbed when she slept. It is not tender; she licks it sometimes. We don't know if she is spayed or not, so she will be going in for the procedure this week.
I take her for a walk every day with my other two dogs and have to use a Gentle Leader on her as she is a puller.
I have only crated her once as it was obvious when I got home that she had tried very hard to get out of the crate while I was gone. She had pushed down two baby gates, so tomorrow I am going to try a baby gate/door combo. She has had some accidents so I can't give her free roam yet.
She LOVES to retrieve (especially stuffed animals) and does it very nicely. She was so happy the first time I threw a toy for her. She looked at me as if to say "You know how to play FETCH! We have something in common!".
Pepper is a sweet girl looking for someone to love. She is quiet and gentle.
