BARRE – A Barre family on Burns Road is still looking for their beloved dog, Pepper, after a devastating fire on Saturday night destroyed their home.

One of their dogs has been found, but the other German Shephard hasn’t been located.

The property at 5581 Burns Rd. is owned by Allen Whipple. Family members have been looking in Barre and north Oakfield for the dog. Mathew Pribek, son of Mr. Whipple’s late wife Connie, said the family is willing to pay a reward to anyone who finds the dog, which has a reddish color.

“We are cautiously optimistic,” Pribek said. “We believe Pepper is out there.”

Anyone with information about the dog should call Pribek at 585-861-0211.
