Pepper The Dog

SPCA Rescue Dog

Pepper was adopted as a puppy from Harare’s SPCA eight years ago. Of unknown heritage, he is likely part Canis Africanus (a dog landrace specific to Africa, not formally recognized as its own breed). Whilst the popularity of pure breeds grows, especially amongst the growing middle class, Pepper is a steadfast model of what these mixed-breed African dogs have to offer – loyalty, resilience and an easy-going loving nature. There are many incredible people working to help animals in Zimbabwe and this page is a shout-out to all those contributing their efforts to animal welfare.
