Beth and Trevor found this dog wandering down the street. We put up ads, posted on websites, and nobody claimed him. He found his way into our hearts, and we decided to keep him. Pepper is an 8.5 pound Chihuahua/Min Pin mutt. Good with the kids. Only occasionally wets the carpet. Since Beth pinky-promised Lauren we could have a dog by the time Lauren was 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10, I guess she's off the hook.
