Pepsi - 3.5 years old (Fostered in High Point, NC)


8/5/19: Hello! My name is Pepsi, but my foster mom and dad think it should be Lovebug! I just LOVE people and attention. I could sit in your lap for hours as long as you're petting me, scratching my belly, rubbing my head... You get the idea. Don't get me wrong.. I have lots of energy. I'm strong for my small size and am fast as lightening! I'm really the best of both worlds. I love playing, but am just as happy to chill with you on the couch.
So far the only other dog I've met is my foster fur sister, but we get along great. We had a slow introduction. My foster parents think I just needed a little extra time to decompress from the shelter, kennel cough and my spay surgery! That's a lot.. Can you blame me??
I was crate and potty trained from Day 1. I'll take all the credit for that!
I know a few commands (sit, lay down, off), and am highly food-motivated, so foster mom thinks I could be easily trained for even more commands (or tricks!).
I haven't met any kids yet, but because of my energy level and strength, I would be better suited for a home with older kids.
Just between us... I heard my foster mom say I'm her first foster dog. I apparently made a good impression, because I also heard her say she's going to miss me so much when I find my forever home!!

9/3/19: Pepsi's foster mom checking in! Pepsi is doing great in her foster home. She and her foster fur sister play CONSTANTLY. They're both getting so much exercise! As she has settled in, some of her little quirks that could use some improvement have revealed themselves. The biggest issue we are seeing is that she is leash reactive, especially when she sees other dogs on walks. Leash reactivity can look different with different dogs. Pepsi becomes pretty fixated on the other dog. She has not growled, but she barks (a more intense bark than when she sees something out the window, for example). She is difficult to redirect and she lunges and pulls. For this reason, she will need an adopter(s) who has experience with this type of behavior. She needs regular walks, so not walking her is not an option.
For her safety (and the preservation of your home!), Pepsi needs to be created when she can't be supervised. We think she would do best in a home where her family is home more than not. She has a lot of energy to burn and that's hard to do in a crate!
Pepsi doesn't live with children right now, but has met some with no problems. We do recommend no children less than 10 yrs old, however, because she is super strong and fast. Sometimes she appears out of nowhere when she is playing and getting riled up!
We have loved getting to know this sweet girl! Trust me, she is so worth the extra effort!!
