Pepper - This Former "Junk Yard Dog" Doesn't Care That He Has Only Three Legs (So Why Should You?)
Susan Daffron talks to Janine Allan who is a trainer for RescueMeDog.org. As a trainer, she works with dogs at shelters throughout southern California and helps shelter staff and volunters improve dog behavior and increase adoptability. This time, she tells us about a 4 year old male Rottweiler mix named Pepper who is at the Humane Society of the Desert, Orphan Pet Oasis in Palm Springs, California.
Pepper is a happy, friendly loving dog, who happens to only have 3 legs. (But Janine points out Pepper can out run any dog with four legs and really loves his walks!) Pepper was originally found at a junk yard with a wounded leg. The shelter fixed him up, but he has been there for about three years now and needs a loving home. He walks nicely on the leash, and also knows a few training commands. Plus, he just loves children and people, so he'll surely put a smile on your face when you meet this friendly guy.
