What can I say about the beautiful Peppi
He was handed in to us through no fault of his own and has shown himself to be a friendly and affectionate little chap, if a little bit worried in new situations.
He travelled well from South Wales and made no fuss. Once home he met my three large breed dogs and was very tolerant while they crowded round and sniffed him to say hello. He didn't react at all when my lab girl was less than welcoming to him or when Anya insisted on washing his face
I'm sure if he was able to roll his eyes he would have done
He hasn't had much in the way of life experience and doesn't seem to know how to play although he is snuggled up to a teddy in his crate as I type this. At the moment he doesn't know how to walk on a lead but that will come in time.
He's come from a home with a number of other dogs and I think he would benefit from living with one or more dogs but equally if his humans were around most of the time I think he would love that as he's a bit of a lap dog and snuggling up seems to be his favourite thing.
That's about as much as I know at the moment but will update as we get to know each other better.
Update 9|7|2012 - Peppi slept quietly all night in his crate and was clean & dry
We were greeted by a very wiggly, waggy tailed boy who wanted lots of cuddles. It's becoming obvious that his people are his first love and he likes to be in the same room as me where he lays and watches what I'm doing. He isn't obsessive though and will happily wait in another room if I close the door behind me, or wait downstairs while I'm upstairs with no fuss. He doesn't seem to be too comfortable in the garden, the grass particularly seems to be strange to him but I'm sure it won't take him long to work it out. We've had a couple of accidents in the house and we've gone back to puppy basics of taking him outside every hour, after food, sleep etc so he should soon get the hang of it. He likes his food and will be easy to train with treats. So far he already knows Sit and Come and would benefit from puppy classes in his new home for socialisation as much as anything else. He's such a sweet natured boy, very loving and so far the perfect house guest
Update 10|7|2012 - Still nothing negative to report about Peppi, we're starting to get glimpses of his cheeky personality now and today he's spent lots of time trotting around with his bum wiggling madly
This afternoon he picked up a toy for the first time and is already starting to relax. He loves being close to you or on your lap but cowers if you bend down to pick him up
I'm working on his fear of the lead by just clipping it on and off him several times a day and giving him lots of treats so hopefully he'll soon start to associate it with something nice. Yesterday he had his first vaccination and charmed everyone in the vets. They gave him a clean bill of health and his weight is just right at 8.6kg. I left him home alone with my dogs today for a couple of hours with no problems.
Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Peppi. Approved applications will be home checked.
