Pepper

(Photo coming soon)

 

Pepper is a 9 year old black and tan female.  Her owner's daughter has leukemia, and they recently lost their home because of financial difficulties.  They had to move into a rental unit, along with their two dogs.  The landlord is allowing them to keep one of the dogs, and they were forced to choose.  Because the other dog is aggressive and unadoptable, they felt that Pepper had a better chance of finding a new home.  This is very sad because senior dogs also have a difficult time finding new homes, so Pepper's situation does not look good.

The daughter is extremely ill, and is going to be heartbroken when Pepper has to leave.  The owner received permission from his landlord to keep Pepper through the holidays so that his daughter could spend one last Christmas with her.  However, after the holidays, they have promised the landlord that they will be down to just one dog.  That means that Pepper doesn't have much time!

We are desperately looking for a home for Pepper starting right after the holidays.  We do not think that Pepper will do well in a kennel environment, and we hope that she will not spend her golden years at the rescue waiting for a home.  We are looking for a Christmas miracle to find a wonderful home for this sweet dog.  She is in excellent health and gets along nicely with other non-aggressive dogs.  Pepper is very well-behaved and sweet.  She is looking for a warm place to call home for the rest of her years.

If you are interested in Pepper, please send an email to the German Shepherd Rescue at gsrescue@gsrescue.org or call (310) 204-4350 and ask how you can arrange to meet Pepper.
