Remember Pepper, the lost Staffordshire mix? She appeared in a New Year's Eve post last year.
Abandoned in Tennessee, she was a sweet and calm dog. A new mother with no puppies and a back story we can never know.
Her first responders, on their way home for the holidays, already had two ginormous dogs of their own. So, phone calls were made and prayers offered up as they drove home for Christmas, 3 dogs packed in the backseat and presents piled in the trunk.
After interviewing a herd of Chihuahuas in Chicago, Pepper decided to keep looking for a new home in the suburbs. She found her forever girl the next day.
They are best buds.
