Why Peppy is so special:

Peppy is beyond special, he is probably the most loyal and well behaved dog I have ever had. We've learned through Peppy that dogs really can express emotion especially when it comes to how grateful they are for you. From what we have been told but the shelter's Peppy had a very rough beginning and was found in the woods and had to be trapped to be helped. He has come such a long way from the partially bold very timid dog that we adopted in May. He truly has an amazing personality!

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

He would tell us how much he is in love with us, and how he can't believe he has the life that he has now. He has gone from living in the woods and being fed scraps by strangers, to being a well known family member amongst our entire family, and he loves seeing them all. He would tell you that his favorite person is his mom and how much he loves cuddling up with her at night in bed to go to sleep, and enjoy's snoring in his dad's face in the process. He would also be happy that we stuck it out for the first few weeks while he was still terrified and didn't understand what was going on from being bounced around to shelter, and then arriving at a stranger's house, which he eventually realized was his home.
