Name: Pepper Potts
Age: 3 years old
Breed: Border Collie mix
Pepper Potts is a sweet and shy 3 year old Border Collie (mix) girl looking for a patient forever home to call her own. She is just under 30 pounds, but could really stand to gain a few more pounds to get to a healthy weight. Pepper came to CHAR after living most of her life outside with very little socialization. However, since coming to her foster home she has begun to show her true personality and everyday conquers a new fear!
Pepper loves to go on walks, snuggle with her Aussie foster brother, explore the backyard and work for her favorite treat…Pepperoni! While she can be timid and skittish, she is working hard to come out of her shell and trust her foster mom. Each day is a new challenge for her as she learns how to adjust to a normal routine.
In just a couple months she’s learned how to sit, walk on a leash, have less accidents in the house, and continues to pick up on more obedience skills each day. Pepper is a very smart girl who would thrive with an experienced family willing to dedicate time and training to continue to build her confidence and social skills. She would also do really well with a calm, laid back canine brother or sister who could play with her and show her the ropes!
Pepper needs the right family who is willing to be patient and go at her pace. She needs to continue working on potty training, riding in the car and coming when called. She has so much potential and is sure to master all these in no time. She would not do well in a very busy home with children or high energy dogs.
She is up to date on her vaccinations, is heartworm negative and has been spayed. Her adoption fee is $300 and is currently being fostered in Greenville, SC.
