Name: Pepper. Usually I have to look up famous people with the same name as that week’s pet of the week. But this week is easy: Pepper Saltzman from Modern Family (hysterical character), Police Woman Pepper Anderson, wrestling legend Pepper Gomez, Mix 96.5 radio personality Sarah Pepper, film star Pepper Hart, and St. Louis Cardinal spark plug Pepper Martin.

Birthdate: December 12, 2017. I’m a lil’ gal, so I’ve got plenty of years ahead of me.

Ethnicity: I'm a Border-terrier mix girly girl, which means I'm super smart. Here’s my deal. I’m 14 pounds of burnin’, churnin,’ hunk o’ fun. I know a bunch of commands like sit, stay, fetch, and more silly things that humans find entertaining about dogs. Get this, I’m not only house trained, I will ring a bell with my nose when I have to go out. So get a bell by your door. I think Long John Silver’s has a bell by their door, too (hopefully for a different reason).

I’m a terrific watchdog and very protective of my house and family. I know, I sound pretty awesome — but I can’t lie. I am awesome. How’d I wind up here? My original owner gave me up when somebody else moved into the house and brought another dog. So I had to go. Pretty pathetic if you asked me. Their loss is your gain. Like all the other pups here, I will be spayed, groomed, and checked out by a vet. Best pocket change you’ll ever spend.

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, August 16, at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Fwy.; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
