Pepe and Roxy are two very affectionate Shepard mix puppies in need of a loving home
They were found as strays in Vernon with no ID or microchip. They are now at the vet in west LA where they will be spay/ neutered and vaccinated. The Dr said they are very healthy and only about 10 months old. Roxy and Pepe would be best suited in a home with older kids because they are not trained yet. They like to jump and need a strong family member who will properly train them. They are smart and fast learners! It would be best to adopt them together, but would not turn down a loving home if they were only able to adopt just one. If interested in Roxy or Pepe, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
