Hi there! My name is Tammy, better known by my foster family as Pepper.
I am ready to find my forever home. I am a 3-4 year old pretty mellow GSP for my age but still enjoy daily playtime. I enjoy spending all day every day laying on the deck sunbathing and chasing the lizards and squirrels. My perfect home would have a large fenced yard with plenty of room for me to explore. I do like to dig after bugs/critters but don’t try to intentionally dig out of the fence; I did learn to open the gate at my foster home, so I do need supervision while in my yard.
I am also a very good office buddy for my foster dad, he works from home most days. I enjoy lounging near him on my dog bed or watching the birds and squirrels out the window. I would love a home where my people are home often so I can go in and out. I enjoy chasing Frisbee in the yard and sometimes the ball too.
My perfect family would like to take me plenty of places with them, I love to be with my people. I am a great plant shopper at Home Depot and Pike Nurseries. I enjoy car rides so much, even if it is just around the block but better if it’s to get a doggie ice cream! I also enjoy daily walks but a running buddy would be awesome. I have done very well with leash training.
My foster family has 4 indoor cats—at first we didn’t get along but now I let them rule the roost. I do not like the neighborhood kitties outside the fence and have a high prey drive for smaller critters/birds, so my new family can't have any of those. I also have 2 canine foster siblings, I am mostly not interested in them. I do try to play occasionally, mostly tug of war or chase, but I’m a little awkward and have a more dominate personality, so if my forever family has a dog I’d prefer a calmer companion.
I love everyone I meet, even the kids I have interacted with when out on my adventures. When I play I am very exuberant so no kids too small or I may knock them down. I have great house manners, no counter surfing here! I would love to be allowed to sleep on the sofa and in the bed, I’m a great snuggler! I love to give my foster mom ‘mooches’ (kisses). I am crate trained and sometimes even lounge in my kennel on my own. I know a few basic commands but am a typical pointer--- ears turns off when the nose turns on.
My foster family thinks I am a perfect girl but it's time to find my furever family.
