Meet Peppercorn

Hi, my name is Peppercorn! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Curious, loving, shy

-Can Live with Kids: Unknown history. Because they're so shy, young kiddos would not be the best fit. Older, dog-savvy kids/teenagers (12+) who can read/respect their body language and give them space when they need it would likely be okay.. everyone will need to meet at the shelter first to ensure they're a good match.

-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history, should be okay with slow, supervised intro!

-Can Live with Dogs: Yes, we'd LOVE to share our home with another canine companion who can help show us the ropes! *Intros done at WHS!*

-Can do Apartment Living: Yes

-Potty Trained: Not quite-- we're still puppies and will learn what you teach us!

-Bite History: No

-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, 6 week puppy course

-Energy Level: Medium
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, spay/microchip
-Additional Information: Peppercorn and her friends were brought to WHS as strays after being found underneath a trailer in Eastern WA. We have no idea what breeds they're made up of, and appear to even be from multiple litters. They will likely be small dogs when fully grown (we're thinking 15-30 lbs) but your guess is as good as ours-- but we think that's all part of the fun! :) These puppies do not appear to have had much in the way of socialization, and are very nervous/shutdown upon first meet. They thrive in the company of another canine companion, and it is STRONGLY encouraged that they be adopted into a home that already has another dog to help them gain some confidence and show them the ropes. Continued socialization with the world around them will be necessary to help them grow into the best adult dogs they can be. A calm, patient household would be ideal, and adopters with prior dog experience are preferred. Once these tiny lil pups are out of the noisy shelter and into a loving home environment, they're sure to blossom and let their true personalities shine! Puppies are a 15+ year commitment, and these lil guys are hoping their new families are in it for the long haul. If you have the time, resources, and love to provide one of these furballs with a forever loving home, submit an application to see if it's a match!
