LOCATION: MELBOURNE EASTERN SUBURBS
*Available for meet and greet by appointment*
Hi everyone, my name is Pepper and I am looking for a new family to love and spoil me.
Pepper is a very affectionate three year old black and tan miniature dachshund. She is a very happy and playful girl who wants to be with her human family as much as possible. She loves to snuggle on the couch next to her human or under a blankie, snoozing in the sunshine and exploring in the garden.
Pepper grew up with a young family and is therefore excellent with children of all ages. She is great with both women and men, but she does get anxious when left alone, which is not unusual for dachshunds, so would suit a household where someone is home most of the time.
She loves to walk, in fact Pepper is a gold medal walker with very little pulling or sniffing stops! From her foster family’s limited experience she has been friendly with other dogs who have joined her on walks, but would benefit from more socialisation. She would likely thrive with another young doggie friend to learn from and keep her company. Pepper has not been tested with cats or other pets.
Pepper loves going out for a ride in the car. She is very well behaved but would love a little booster seat so she can see out the window.
Previously an outside dog 24/7, Pepper mastered the doggie door almost instantly. She will happily go in and out all day, but still needs a little more work to be 100% toilet trained.
Pepper eats two small meals a day at breakfast and dinner. She will eat all of her kibble on most occasions, but with a little extra treat mixed in she will gobble it all up.
When it is bedtime, Pepper will follow her humans to bed. Pepper does sleep undisturbed all night in her own bed, but would love for her bed to be in the bedroom.
Despite her size, Pepper is a big brave girl and not afraid of the vacuum or other loud bangs and crashes. In fact, unlike most other dachshunds, Pepper is a mostly quiet girl who doesn’t bark at every strange sound outside.
Pepper does have a medical condition which requires eye drops multiple times per day, so her new family will need to be patient while applying her drops while she is getting to know and love you. This is easily done with a treat which she will be very grateful for afterwards.
