This is Pepper, a saved Schnoodle. I got Pepper eight years ago from Pets and People in Yukon. He is so smart and loves everyone.

I have multiple sclerosis, and Pepper helps keep me well with his wonderful character and attention to me.

In January, he got sick with pancreatitis. This is very serious, and the vet tried to prepare me that I might have to put him down. After five days in the hospital with an IV in his little leg, he came home. It was quite a trial period getting him to eat. But with three rounds of antibiotics, he is back to his normal, happy self and playing with his favorite toy, his rag bone.

The vet calls him a miracle dog! I am so grateful to the veterinarians and everyone at the Warr Acres Animal Clinic that helped save him.
