Sometimes one wonders if there is a bit of divine intervention going on. And so goes the story of now 13 year old Pepper in Puerto Rico. According to his dad Ralph:
was a 2 week old puppy and his old owners were bad people I would not
associate with. They would inject their bull terriers with steroids so
that they would get beefed up for fighting. Not just gambling, but they
enjoy watching other defenseless dogs get torn apart as well.
just so happened to be at right place at the right time. The owner kicked
the 2 week old Pepper and I yelled HEY! Pepper must have thought I was
calling him because he ran to me. I picked him up and the owner said
"keep that garbage". I said the only garbage I see is you. He was trying
to explain that Pepper is not a pure bred but I didn't care what he
said. I actually wanted to rip his face off. But to not injure Pepper
further by fighting, I took him home. The first thing he did was bark at
some kids making noise in front. Thats when I knew he already owned the
house. Everybody knows Pepper and loves him in the neighborhood too"
Pepper is a very special boy. He is very lucky to have found such a loving home. No doubt that his Dad Ralph feels blessed to have him in his life.
