Formerly Abused Dog Finds Her Way Back To Her Rescuer After Running Away From New Family To Find Him

Pepper was in terrible shape when he found her, so he took her in and cared for the severely abused dog.


Josh fostered Pepper, nursed her back to health and purchased her rehabilitation. But Pepper’s story took several other twists and turns before the Labrador retriever / Pointer / Jack Russell Terrier mix ended up becoming a permanent member of Josh’s family.



Here’s Pepper’s story as written by Josh in her point of view:



“My name is Pepper and that i was a dumpster dog who was delivered to the SPCA as a puppy. Ironically, an animal hoarder took me in, abused me, neglected me and kept me locked during a storage shed in Houston Texas’s 110 degree summer heat. I had a rusted cook pot as my bowl but ate twice every week . I slept with a choke collar attached to an exercycle , was beaten and learned the way to sleep standing up.


“When Josh, my saviour, found me i used to be surrounded by the smaller dead animals that the hoarder neglected to feed. The vet told me I had mange, 27 lacerations, (2) sets of worms, fleas, ticks, fractured leg, malnourished and to not mention being petted scared me to death.”


“My new owner fixed me up and gave me away to a loving family. They lost me during a month as I got out and ran away. every week later an educator found me at a faculty miles away and dropped me off at a vet clinic where I stayed for 4 days. Josh had kept in touch with the family he gave me to and did his homework since i used to be microchipped, but with the data still being the SPCA they were ready to locate me when he called.”



“The new family said it had been an accident so he gave me back to them. A month later they lost me again. I ran 14 miles to the precise same vet clinic where the varsity teacher took me the primary time. They knew who i used to be , called Josh and as i used to be hoping for, HE KEPT ME!!! Dreams do come true!! i'm now a healthy happy dog who lives with an excellent family and have my Siberian husky step sister who i really like , an exquisite human who spoils me rotten, feeds me the simplest food on the market and that i live next to a 20 acre dog park.”

  1. I've always wondered how a rescuer who rehabilitates lost dogs can give them to someone else after working with them. I don't think I could do that which means I would end up with too many dogs and be identified as a hoarder. I wonder about how hard it is for the the dog to adjust to new family and know it must be hard. I have had many dogs over the years, some I got on purpose and others who kind of fell into my lap. I've never had more than three and think I've always taken care of my 4 legged kids. My current dog I have known for all 10 years of her life and she is a major part of my life as I am hers, but she was originally my granddaughter's pup who rescued her when the mother dog died, she was 4 weeks old.
    I guess I understand hoarders and know that we need to know our limits when accumulating pets. My girl is getting old on me now and I worry about her a lot but no way will I consider replacing her while she is still here.
