Pepper is a Staffordshire mix rescued from a no-kill shelter in North Texas. She was adopted after being treated for whip worm and kennel cough, both of which she contracted after being in the shelter. Pepper's hobbies include play dates, pool time and stick chewing. When she was 5 months old, she had a bursal cyst removed from her hindquarters. Since then, she has had hormone deficiency issues, which have led to kidney infection and accidents in the house. Despite the minor health issues, Pepper is a happy, playful 60-pound lap dog. Her long-distance boyfriend, Isaac, a puggle from Arkansas, is very supportive of Pepper's promising stick-chewing career.
