All about pepino

Pepino was found on the streets of the inner city of Los Angeles by a police officer. He was bleeding, starving, had lost his coat and could barely walk. He as 17 mos old.
A trip to the Humane Society produced a recommendation that he be euthanized.....too far gone. Thankfully, this lady cop took him to a vet she knew, where he was bathed, fed and cared for.
She brought this little guy to a Rescue at Petsmart where I was shopping. My little pal, named Bri, adopted from a local dog pound, had lost her life to an illness that veterinarians could not defeat a year earlier.
This left me with my constant travel pal, Sinja, a rescue dog from a shelter. Both Sinja and Bri stayed with me after my divorce.
I knew that Sinja needed a new a pal, we both missed Bri. One look at Pepino and I knew he was meant to come home with me. The lady police officer told me she knew my dog skills would give this little guy the chance he needed.
And it has been a ride! Little Pepino came to me with only 2 teeth ( at 17mos of age), has skin conditions and assorted little health challenges.
But with holistic food and supplements he has come a long way...and Sinja has a buddy that goes with her, and me everywhere !
