Peppa is a gorgeous little liver and white Brittany- she’s about 4 years old and weighs in at about 28 pounds. She came to us nearly 8 weeks ago with her daddy, Zach. They were abandoned at a hunt club in North Carolina. ABR came in to save them and we were happy to take her in as our foster. She was very attached to her daddy but his age and medical issues made it difficult to keep them together as foster dogs and dad went to another ABR foster home also in Alexandria, VA. Peppa has come a long way but has a lot further to go to lead a happily ever after life. We live in Northern Virginia (Old Town Alexandria) and when she came to us, she was scared of everything and everybody- cars, trucks, buses, bikes, trains, planes and people. After 2 months of walking 3 times per day for about 2-3 hours, she is now pretty much only afraidof people. However, even with being afraid, she has shown absolutely no aggression- she will simply cower or try to hide. We have a 21 month old child and she has always been very sweet and gentle with him or simply avoided him if she was scared. She needs to develop confidence with someone who can take the time to teach her and get her to trust her as their leader in new surroundings. We have two female Brittanys and they have been teaching her the ropes about living in a house. She is a very smart girl and was potty trained in about 2 days! We think she has no limit to her potential- she just needs a very patient, loving person/family to allow her to adjust to life as a companion. She has become somewhat attached to our younger, 5 year old Brittany and we think she would do best with another dog in her home- more specifically a calm, dominant dog whom she can learn from and look up to- she just seems to need another canine around to discipline her and show her that things are ok. If you have the time and are willing to invest it in her, Peppa will be a wonderful companion for you and your family. If interested please fill out our online adoption application . Peppa and her older dad were abandoned at a hunt club in North Carolina. They were eventually turned into the local shelter and dad was taken to the local vet to be euthanized. We were so lucky to have an advocate step up and force the shelter to take dad in as well.
