Pepper — Shelter

Location: La Habra, California

I adopted Pepper from the SPCA. My Dad is an Army Vietnam Veteran. Both him and Pepper have a lot in common. They’ve survived war and yet are both gentle and loving, more than they should be based on their scars. My Dad had become depressed and was withdrawing. Pepper turned all of that around and I feel my Dad taught Pepper to trust again. They’re both at the same stage they’re like bosom buddies, geriatric edition.
