Pepper is a 3-year-old male Labrador Mix, weighing 65 lbs. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and in good health. Pepper was relinquished to the Humane Society because his family moved.

He is house-trained, potty-trained, and familiar with all the standard commands, including sit, lay down, stay, shake, spin, rollover, etc. Eager to please and highly treat-motivated, Pepper is easy to train. He enjoys car rides, remaining quiet and patient during the journey. Pepper is a true cuddle-bug! He loves to rub up against his people and lay his chin in your lap.

With his playful and affectionate nature, Pepper is sure to add a pep to your step! He accompanies his foster mom to work and has already built a fan club.

Pepper’s ideal home would provide ample time with humans, a calm environment, and space for his energetic zoomies (a yard is sufficient; he doesn’t require a park). While athletic, Pepper is also a great cuddle bug. His ideal family should be dog-savvy, able to interpret his body language, and reassure him with love when he feels scared or uncertain. He may startle at times, so it’s advisable to avoid parties/events with unfamiliar people/kids/animals. Pepper is best suited for a family without young children.

In his previous home, Pepper was comfortable staying alone with another dog. Although he has exhibited some separation anxiety in his foster home, it’s improving over time. Given his stable history with a long-term family, we expect this issue to resolve once he feels confident in his permanent home.

Pepper was accustomed to visiting off-leash dog parks without issues and lived harmoniously with another large dog. In his foster home, he occasionally displays reactivity to dogs, so proper introductions are essential for potential housemates before adoption.

Pepper is ready to be your hiking partner, work companion, road trip buddy, or simply your beloved house pet. He is eager to shower you with love!
