Sugar and Pepper in Norman, OK

Needed: A home for the holidays! These tightly bonded 11 year old brothers will add sweet and a little spice to your life! As much as they want to be together, Sugar and Pepper need a loving family with hearts big enough for two. They must be placed together.

These boys were adopted 2 years ago by a lady with 2 children. They loved the dogs, but due to the allergies of the son, it has become necessary to place the boys into a new home.

Sitting on the floor, tri-color boy Pepper stretches as far as he can reach to pull your hand gently down for a rub. Sugar, Blenheim boy, is more patient, but he loves a good scratch and smiles when he is the object of affection. Both follow their family from room to room, lying politely in front of any closed door until someone emerges. They were taught to stay off of furniture as young lads, so they do not get on any furniture. Pepper will put his front paws up to seek an ear rub, but they do not jump up.

They love to see the leashes come out; both walk well on a leash once their initial excitement subsides. They also love grooming and baths whether at home or at the spa.

Sugar and Pepper love to sleep together in a single crate, turning down offers of individual crates or a big, soft bed outside their crate. They rest quietly through the night.

Sugar rarely barks. Pepper can be a bit vocal at dinnertime, but quiets immediately if sent to his crate while his bowl is prepared. As with most dogs, it is best to separate them for meals. Pepper can also get vocal if there is storm, but quiets down once he's close to you.

These happy fellows are young at heart. Pepper, in particular, loves to be active. A fenced yard is essential, as they enjoy exploring and bird watching. Both view riding in a car as grand adventure.

The boys are in very good health, but have started to lose their hearing a bit with age. They are housetrained. They need to be taken outside regularly, and should be crated when left alone to prevent accidents. Both are micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccines, and had dental cleanings. Pepper has lost a couple of teeth, but has plenty left to enjoy a good chew. They are heartworm-free and current on heartworm, flea and tick preventive.

Sugar and Pepper will be happiest with someone who is home most of the time to give them the love and attention they deserve. They require a little special understanding as they are seniors, but they still have the energy and affection of younger dogs.
