Hi everyone. We are renewing our effort to find Pepper, who was adopted in December but ran off from his new owner Dec. 23, 2011, while on a walk on El Rancho Road near West Alameda. We have had many sightings, but no luck in catching this fearful and shy dog. We are hoping to mimic Steve's success in finding Zorro by narrowing down Pepper's location. I put an ad in today's New Mexican (Free!) and then used Pet Amber Alert to call about 500 people in the area. The service has been awesome and they even generated a poster, which I will attach here. I'll try to keep everyone informed about any developments. No sightings since Sunday, which is a little worrisome, but a woman called tonight to say that she was praying to Saint Francis that Pepper would find his way back home!
