Pepper on Patrol

Pepper on Patrol

Pepper On Patrol is an entirely self-funded initiative which relies on personal investment and support from the local community.

Pepper is part of the Anti-Rhino poaching team working tirelessly in a dangerous role with her owner/handler Adrian to keep South Africa’s Rhinos alive and safe. Pepper and Adrian founded Rhino Watch specifically for their section of the reserve, Balule, part of the Greater Kruger Park.

Pepper has been training hard to protect the wildlife living within the Greater Kruger area. She was taken to the camp she now calls home, when she was just a little puppy. Over the years since she first arrived, she has become a massive part of conservation efforts in her camp.

The reason Pepper is so unique is that Bull Terriers aren’t usually the first to be considered as a working dog. She has excelled in all her training and today, is a faithful companion during stakeouts for poaching prevention.

Always on duty, Pepper and Adrian can be found out on the reserve on patrols, tracking down armed poachers and regularly sleeping out in the wilderness for several days and nights on end.

Pepper is dedicated to catching the bad guys and is very well-mannered with the wildlife they encounter.
