The hottest pepper in the TAP world!

Hola my fellas! My name is Habanero and seriously, so pleased to meet ya! I am about 3 years old, a male Shepherd-Hound mix and weigh about 30 lbs. I am all the way from TJ where TAP was busy rescuing a group of ‘Pepper’ dogs. They were in a Costco lot and came across me, a total angel, with a little asterisk. You see, I have a leg deformity, and that gives me a funky dance step when I walk. Being the amazing people they are, they weren’t going to leave me behind! Here I am at an amazing foster home, living the hottest life that I deserve! I show my gratitude by trying to learn perfect doggie manners, and getting bathroom trained. I am almost all there, I pawmise. I am neutered now! My neuter appointment is coming up soon, but I am ripe to go home!

Being the hot pepper on the outside, and sweetest fruit on the inside, comes easily to me. Seriously, I am beyond friendly! One gaze into my soulful eyes, and I will surrender to you out of love! I get along so well with other dogs. I havent met kids yet, but I am sure I am going to adore them. Kitties may not work for me, I have a tendency to think that they could be, errrr, food. I am quite chil(li) and easy going, I sure can crack you up with my goofiness. I am quite vocal and get my emotions known without being barky and rude. My fam enjoys my ‘talking’. I had never known toys before, but I love them now! So, let’s address the cute pink elephant in the room, my leg. It doesnt stop me from loving my people and being grateful about life. But I am not a running buddy. I will also need a home with carpets and without stairs, just so that I am comfortable, hope you understand. I am being fitted with a powerful bionic leg like a superhero, and that will help me have fun at dog parks and in a yard and jump onto my people’s laps. Once I am walking more with my fancy leg, we can perfect my leash training. I am sure treatos will take care of that because I can do anything for food!

I would love to be in a home where I am doted and loved upon! I have looked forward to a warm, safe haven all my life. I will need a home with carpet and without stairs please. A grassy backyard will help me play and stay comfortable. I can be with a fun group of pets too! If you’d like to Netflix and chili with me, go woof! My adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adopt-today
