Peppa is the goofiest dog you’ll ever meet and will wiggle her way right into your heart! Anytime you look at her, she starts wagging her tail and is just so happy to have your attention. She is a people pleaser and is very receptive to training. She just wants to be near her person and is very respectful with her affection.
She is very bouncy, but still cautious and a bit shy in some new situations. It’s easy to convince her to investigate anything that might make her uneasy, and she is becoming more confident daily as she is exposed to new environments. She does bark at new people/sounds/animals, but she is easily won over by treats. She redirects well and responds quickly to correction. Given her mild reactivity to strangers and sight prey drive, Peppa would do best in a home with no small animals or children. Peppa loves riding in the car and does well in her crate. She is not destructive and is highly motivated by food and her ball. She is working on basic obedience and has already mastered a few commands.
Peppa would do best in an active family and in a calm home. She needs some patience and understanding as she continues to become comfortable. She would love to have a dog friend to romp around with and would love to have an adventurous handler who wants to be outdoors exploring. Her love of food and balls could be turned into success in nose work, should her new family be interested. Submit an application today and let Peppa bounce right into your heart!
