Gracie Peppers was very lovingly surrendered by her owners due to aggression. There are two sides to Gracie. One side is her aggressive and fearful behavior. She will bite you if she does not know you and you push her. She is not fond of strangers or men. The other side is a sweet girl that loves attention and loves to play just like any other dog. You must earn her trust before you can see the sweet side of her.
In the past, previous owners said that Gracie was abused before they took her in. They tried training but could no longer care for Gracie and her needs. Gracie is very sensitive around her head and it is one of her triggers due to being raised on a shock collar. Some of the caregivers earned her trust by being patient with her and offering to take her on walks, which is her favorite thing to do! With the people she trusts she plays, paws at you for attention, and even rolls over on her back for belly rubs and will give them kisses! She walks great on a leash, knows basic commands and is crate trained. Gracie was tested with cats and ignored them.
We believe Gracie is adoptable to the right home! It has to be just the right home and expect to have to come to the farm on multiple occasions to earn her trust before she can leave with you. It is best for Gracie to go to a home with no children and little traffic from strangers. She would also need to be the only dog. She has a personality even more dynamic than her cute face.
Rescue was the only option for Gracie. We are at least her 3rd home. Gracie has potential but it will take lots of experience and patience. She is happy in sanctuary at Dreamweaver Farms and has become a staff favorite in her area once they earn her trust.
Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs. If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!
