Adopt Me: Pepper has a kick to her personality

She would prefer a home without other animals

CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Australian cattle dog (~20kgs)
Female spayed
Approximately 9 years old
Suitable for children 16+
No apartments
No other animals

If you are someone who says "hold the pepper" when it comes to cooking then this girl may not be the one for you! Our Pepper is exuberant and definitely has a kick to her personality. This girl greets everyone with full body wiggles and tons of kisses! She is anything but shy and will gladly roll over for belly rubs right away! Her age may say 9 but her personality resembles a young pup. Pepper loves the water and playing fetch. She is a smart girl; already knowing multiple commands and is eager to please her people! Australian Cattle Dogs are a very active and high energy breed so having done research before coming to meet her is ideal or breed experience is recommended as she may not fit everyone's lifestyle.

Pepper is available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. Please contact us at 468-7877 Option 6 for more information or at

You can drop by the shelter anytime during our business hours to meet adoptable dogs. We do not accept online applications at this time.
