Here's the latest Pet of the Week, where Pets-n-Us highlights an adoptable animal through PB & Chi Dog Rescue.
Pepsi is an adorable male mixed breed who weighs 25lbs. Don't let the white speckles and greyish muzzle fool you, he's only one year old! PB&Chi took him in after an adoption through another rescue didn't work out. Pepsi was a street dog in India, and is therefore a bit shy and scared of his new country and people. It takes him a bit of time to warm up to new people, but once he does, what a little ham! He is so playful and goofy! When it comes to other animals, look out because Pepsi LOVES them all, cats too! He ADORES big dogs, especially pitbulls (good thing he's with us!) and we feel he must go to a home with at least one other dog who will give him calm and confidence. Because of the huge change in his world, Pepsi is working on issues with separation anxiety. He is not a fan of being left alone, and will cry for about 10-15 minutes when first left. He must be crated when left alone or will panic and hurt himself, but he is fine in his crate. In his current foster home, she leaves him out with her dogs while she is at work and he has no issues, makes no peep. At night he sleeps alone in his crate. Pepsi is almost completely house trained and is practicing his leash skills; he pulls a bit and zig zags, but easy to control. This sweet boy will be such a gem once he settles into his new culture and country. A active family that loves to hike, bike and explore would be ideal for him as he is an active guy and it would help desensitize him to his new world. As with all our dogs, he is neutered and up to date on all shots and vaccines and microchipped. We are looking for an immediate foster or furever home.
