Hi, I’m Pepper!
I’m a 5-month-old spunky Great Dane Mix. I’m about 45lbs and my foster mom thinks I might also be part hound. I’ve got much more coordination and spring in my step than most Dane puppies my age. I’m the perfect mix of playful and cuddly.
When I’m not running around the backyard with my foster siblings or playing fetch with my foster mom, I love snuggling on the couch or bed. I might not be a full-Great Dane, but I can be a couch potato all the same! I would love a home with playful dog siblings – I really like playing tug and keep away. When I’m really excited, I like to hop and dive so that I’m the one who gets to the toy first! Honestly, I just really like toys!! My foster mom loves when she has to clean up after I take every toy out of the toy bin! But when the fun is over, I would love to share a dog bed with my dog friends! I do have a lot of puppy energy, so I would pair best with a dog that is spunky just like me! I like to get out some of my energy with daily walks.
I’m great on leash – both walking and meeting other dogs. When I’m out on a walk and I see something fun.. like a bird… I like to do a cute little bunny hop and make my ears flop.
I currently have 3 cat foster siblings and I REALLY want to play with them and I can’t understand why they won’t play back! If there is a cat in my new home, it would be best if they were very dog-savvy and either ignored me or tried to play back!
I also really love my foster parents AND I love all new people! I will run up, give kisses, and give you my belly for pets. I haven’t met small humans yet, but my previous owner said I did great with kids. I am potty trained and will sit by the door when I need to go potty. I think I would really like to be bell-trained to signal when I need to go outside. I might ring it a lot though because I LOVE to be outside! I’m also crate trained and I do really well in my crate at night. During the day, I don’t like it as much, so I will need a new family that is patient with crate training. I’m up to date on all of my vaccines and will be ready for adoption once I’m spayed in a few weeks!
People: Great with men, women, strangers
Dogs: Great with all dogs, would prefer playful sibling
Cats: Likes to chase in a playful way, would require dog-savvy cat
Pepper is being fostered in Richmond VA.
