ADOPTED : Meet Pepper, a stunning little self Blue Merle Australian Shepherd who weighs around 35 pounds. Pepper is up to date on all her shots, neutered and Heartworm negative. Pepper was given to the rescue because of a change in her family situation, which was no fault of her own.
Pepper is 100% housebroken and crate trained. She rides well in a car and walks okay on a leash. The foster family is working on her walking manners. She also knows basic commands like sit, down, stay (for a little bit;)
Pepper is very good with the children in the home, she will play fetch and chase and run until you either lose your arm or need to sit down. Pepper is reactive to strangers as most Aussie are, she will bark when a stranger approaches and will calm down once she knows the person is allowed to be near her family.
Turns out Pepper is great with other dogs, and gets along just fine in the pack situation. Her new foster home says she is on e excellent girl and is smart as a whip.
