Pepper came to our rescue as an owner surrender from the Northern VA area.
He is housebroken and crate trained but needs to be able to go potty every 4 hours. He walks wonderfully on the leash and enjoys going for walks.
Pepper has lived with children and gets along great with cats and other dogs. He does guard his food when it's feeding time so he will need to be seperated from other dogs that time. He has no guarding issues with people.
Pepper had eye surgery to correct Eyelid Entropion in both of his eyes. His eye sight has improved and he is a happier now but he still has vision problems.
Pepper has problems with his gate and vision and based on this behavior we believe that he has some neurological damage (possibly mild hydrocephalus). Not knowing his past we do not know if it is genetic or if the damage happened by forced trauma in his younger years. Regardless, he is a happy little guy and loves to hump people's legs if he is getting bored. Seriously, it is so funny!!!
Pepper does not like to be touched and becomes quite unsettled when being hugged.
Pepper is restless and develops anxiety on car rides. The less time he can spend in the car the better.
