DeKalb’s Tails Humane Society, 2250 Barber Greene Road, has a new pet of the week up for adoption. Peppermint is a large female dog searching for a loving new home. 

Peppermint is 2-years-old and weighs 52 lbs. She is a young, energetic dog who loves to play and go on long walks. She also loves to snuggle up and cuddle. Peppermint came to Tails all the way from Oklahoma where she was found raising her puppies all alone. Her puppies have found new homes and she is now waiting for her turn. 

Peppermint had a rough life before coming to Tails so she is a little scared around new people, but once she gets comfortable, she is the best friend you could ask for. She gets along great with bigger dogs around her size but not so much with smaller dogs and cats. 

If you are interested in Peppermint make sure to ask a Tails employee to see her or call the humane society at 815-758-2457, as she is not in the main dog area. Part of Peppermint’s adoption fee has already been donated, bringing her adoption price to $225.
