Hi, I'm



my favorite thing to do is...

Earn treats


Pepper is a muscular boy, super shy, and waiting to open up his timid outer shell to the right human. He is not one to warm up to new people or surroundings in a hurry. Lots of time and patience will give him everything he needs to “assess” and acclimate to his new home.
It’s been Pepper’s foster mom’s observation that he will be best suited in a single person home. He is good with men and women. His personality is timid and often a little afraid, finding solace in quiet settings, around few people.

Pepper-boy IS interested in cats. He presently chases one the resident cats in his foster home, while leaving alone the cat that stands its ground. Being fully house broken in his foster home has been lovely, and you’ll find that Pepper LOVES using the doggie door for trips outside.

With time, LOTS of patience, and the expectation that YOU will be waiting for this gentle pup to find his own timeline for opening his heart to his new human, you will be gaining a truly lovely little dog. He will open up, in his own time. So, have some treats handy to start earning his trust, (he has a good appetite). Not knowing his previous history means he is a new book to dive into and really let the essence sink in. He won’t be your typical jump in your lap, lick your face, super excited companion upon first meeting. But we believe, with the right person, you’ll meet your loyal and loving companion. He’s in there…he’s just waiting for the right time to make his way out. Pepper needs your LOVE.

Adoption fees help cover the costs of Transport, Distemper/Parvo Boosters, Rabies shot, Microchip, and Spay/Neuters, as well the dog comes with a collar, harness and leash. You will also receive a PetSmart puppy packet with 100.00's of dollars of savings, you get a FREE bag of food, 30 min private training session with a certified dog trainer as well as a free checkup at Banfield.

Submitting an application in no way guarantees you a dog as we receive several applications and will choose the best home for the dog.

Wiggly Tails Dog Rescue is proud to rescue dogs in urgent need and to also assist local owners who can no longer care for their small breed dog. All our dogs are up to date on their shots and spay or neutered. We do require a foster or adoption application for those interested and will visit your home for a meet and greet before releasing the dog to you.
