A shelter can be a scary place for a dog. Spending more than a year there when you're already a sensitive soul must have been devastating. Pepper's first night in rescue was spent as if she was frozen in place on the floor, though a dog bed was right next to her. The next day, she came out of her shell a little more, thanks to being reunited with her old shelter roommate. And by bedtime the second night, she let herself enjoy a soft bed.

This dog. This is why we rescue.... Food and shelter will keep her alive but love is what will relight the spark in her eye. Are you the one that will make that happen?

Pepper is a tiny, 25 pound blue Heeler mix. She is a rock star at pottying outside and she is currently oblivious to other dogs though we know she likes them in general. We think kind, older, thoughtful children will be ok too as well as both men and women. To meet her, fill out an application at emotionalrescuemn.org.
