Pepin was purchased from a breeder in Holland who is famous for raising working dogs of the highest standards. Pepin has two speeds: zero and 11. When he is at 11, he is an unparalleled detection dog who has achieved a long list of “firsts:” he was one of the first dogs to detect wire wildlife snares, to find scat under running stream water and to detect live fish in moving streams. In his professional life, Pepin has visited Africa and Myanmar as an ambassador of his trade, but when he is off the clock he devotes his prodigious energy to kissing, cuddling, and taking up most of the bed.
