    froster mum say Pepi is the dog of one of our local volunteers. Family illhealth and now the death of her mother means she is having to have frequent visits to her dad. Her two Yorkies go to a friend but the friends dog attacked Pepi a couple of years ago and did a fair bit of damage to him. Since then Pepi has come to stay with me when his mum goes away but she now feels that it would be best if Pepi had a new home.

    He gets on with my dogs and every dog he has met at mine, lives with small children and is a really lovable boy. He is a bit overweight, has a grade 2 heart murmur and can be a bit gobby when left alone. I love him dearly and would kepp him with me for good but think it better for Pepi to have a special home of his own.

    He is about 5 I think but will check and has been castrated. We will make sure his vacs are up to date.

    hi i am pepi's new foster mum and i am peppi's new foster mum and he is so lovely such a softie brill in the car and in the house cant think of a bad thing about him he is a star no accidents loves lexi and lexi loves him she follows him around everywhere poor guy cant get ten seconds to himself.

    i will add the pics in a sec but must rant on some more about this little guy we went to the park and he met the local dogs a doberman, rottie, collie and a pug and thought it was great said hello and watched them play for a bit did not join in only thing lexi is not happy about is that he wont play with her

    when we got home next door had come back so asked if the cat was around and they brought the cat round for a little test he was not bothered by her until she ran off over the fence then he chased her but going to see as not sure he does not like them more that he wants to play will update on that more as time goes on so what else can i say other than the person who takes him is going to have endless cuddles and lots of love for the rest of his days.

    sorry kayla thought i would reply while online.

    pepi is in derby with me and he is looking for a home that has someone around most of the time as can be a bit gobby when left on his own but working on that other than that any really he is gentle ad can go with any age of child loving and just wants to be loved in return

    for all wanting to know from the last reply from me he has been in the kitchen with the cat now and he does not bother with it.

    Have you tried bichon frise rescue - they do wonderful work and normally have a waiting list of prospective owners who have already been home vetted - if not their web address is www.bichonfriserescue.me.uk. Pepi sounds wonderful and somebody will be very lucky to take him home :)

    from his foster mum louisehall21 well today has been a busy day for this little guy he has been to the vets for his booster which was really easy he just stood there didn't flintch at all she checked him over and weighed him and said i think he needs a diet lol
    well fatty is doing really well with his exercise and lexi keeps him on the move so the weight will be gone in no time much to his dislike all this work i am sure.
    well we went to the park again on the swings lexi not pepi lol and everyone loved him thought he was so well behaved as he lay next to the swings while lexi had a play and then i went to the grooming parlor to speak to my good friend there and she has offered to give him a good bath and make him look as good as his personality so will be going there on thursday (must find camera) i am sure he cant wait.

    Pepi is still looking for his forever home :|

    His foster mum says pepi has come on so much he really seems to have settled in now and the more he is here the more he trusts me he is getting better at being left and i know i can go out without causing next door to get out the ear plugs he is great really laid back just wants cuddles and kisses.

    this lad must have a new forever home soon as i promised i would not fail on my first one but it is so hard not to love this little lad he has everything going for him and going to make someone a very happy person.

    I'm interested in this little chap he sounds perfect to fit in our household.
    I do run my own private cat rescue.
    But have been wanting a little dog for a long time
    i have had miniture yorkies in the past and adore
    small dogs i think the cats would not mind at all.
    We have a fair sized garden with new fencing
    and we live near 2 large parks in Derby.
    Could i have a bit more info on adoption fee etc please. :D
