Pepsi is a sweet and loving girl who arrived in our care through no fault of her own. She is a very friendly and affectionate dog who loves spending time with her carers. Unfortunately Pepsi is blind and so does take a little while to recognise new surroundings and people and as such she would require multiple visits.

Pepsi enjoys having an explore in our enclosed areas, however as she is blind, doesn't have much interest in playing with toys. She does like to know where her carers are and will often bark if she thinks she's lost them, she will also happily return back for some fuss or a tasty treat. New owners will want to reinforce this and make sure she has a solid reliable recall before being let off in open spaces.

At present Pepsi appears to only know 'sit' and even this needs more work as she doesn't always listen. Further training will be required, which can be achieved using high value treats, which she is very motivated by. Using positive reward based training will help new owners to build up more of a bond with her.

When she has been mixed with other dogs, Pepsi is calm, if a little cautious, when first approaching a dog, but will happily say hello in a friendly manner. Once she has said hello however, she is happy to wander off and continue her exploring. Pepsi would be ok to live with another calm dog, who isn't too interested in playing, pending a few succesful dog mixes.

Pepsi does also have diabetes and requires daily insulin injections morning and night, new owners will need to be confident in doing this, and prepared to deal with the extra costs involved.

In a home with owners who have previously owned a dog and are happy to give her the time to settle, she will make a very affectionate and wonderful addition.

Can you offer this lovely girl a loving and permanent new home?
