Peeper came in to us from a home where she was not suited to that environment. Pepper is a highly intelligent Patterdale cross staffordshire bull terrier. Her characteristics and size matches that of a patterdale terrier. Only her head shape give her the staffy characteristics. She has a beautiful staffy smile.
Pepper is a fun dog who will walk miles and miles with you and cuddle up in the evenings. She takes some time to trust you but once she does she is very happy to see you every time you walk by.
Pepper hasnt had the best start in life by any means and will require ALOT of work. Please dont think that she will be an easy dog. Pepper has issues building relationships. She is used to self entertaining herself and expresses coping behaviours to help her handle her living situation.
At the shelter we are working hard with her to help her realise that humans are good and working with them is beneficial rather than finding her own entertainment which results in undesirable behaviours.
Pepper will take some time to warm to a new owner and the team here will be here to help show you her training.
Pepper will need an experienced home who is ready to take on a project dog who will be 100% be worth the effort. Someone who will be patience and respect her needs.
An adult only with no children or visiting children. She isnt a dangerous dog by any means but she can jump and springboard off adults and has no discrimination between big humans and small ones (children). Therefore, we are looking for an adult only home for pepper.
Pepper needs a home with no other pets. She does get on with other dogs but she would prefer to be the only other animal in the household.
Pepper is crate trained and can be left however that can be no longer than 3 hours at a time.
Pepper needs an owner who will be willing to visit the animal shelter multiple times so that she van get used to yourself until she goes home with you to live out her days.
Patterdales: They are typically clever, quick little dogs who are reluctant to back down from a threat. They should enjoy training and problem solving, but are also likely to enjoy barking, digging and killing toys by shaking and shredding them.
Staffordshire Bull Terriers: Staffordshire Bull Terriers typically love people and approach the world with an exuberant and enthusiastic attitude. They naturally enjoy training and games but can need some help to learn calmer behaviours.
