Pepper is an affectionate, lap-loving 53-pound lady who loves to be petted. She might look big and tough but if there is any thunder she'll want you to hold her to give her comfort. She is easygoing, friendly, and playful with kids as young as six and with adults of all shapes and sizes. She loves people. She is moderately active and enjoys car rides, running, walks, wrestling, and water. She is house trained but please be patient as she learns a new routine. She is used to being crated up to eight hours and day and had access to a doggie door at night. If she can't get out there, she'll stand by the door. She knows the sit, no, and down commands. She is adventurous and quite talented. She can jump a six-foot fence to head out on an adventure. At the shelter she loves to run a few laps in the yard and then is ready to go inside. She is playful with cats but far too rough for most. She lived with two other dogs and did not get along with them but she does behave well at the dog park. Because of her behavior around other dogs she lives with, she'll need to be your only canine companion. Playful Pepper is hoping for a home where she can be loved and appreciated for who she is.
