The primary purpose of Peppertree is to help find homes for dogs in need who represent the character and temperament commonly associated with Golden Retrievers: friendliness, intelligence and a peaceful, loving nature.
In addition to accepting dogs of any breed or mix that meet our temperament requirements, Peppertree is also a recognized Golden Retriever rescue organization (http://www.grca-nrc.org/). We frequently have purebred Goldens available for adoption, and we have an established relationship with Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue (MAGRR). Read about their Northeast Adoption Program here.
Peppertree Special Pet
SCULLY - Lab mix, female, 9 years, 65 lbs. Scully is a happy, smiley and affectionate girl - she's part dog and part super model! Our energetic girl has been through a lot of changes in her life, finding herself in a shelter when her family lost their housing. Scully doesn't require a crate because of her excellent house manners and is very eager to find a home where she can relax and become a pampered pooch. She's an unassuming girl who thinks she's a lap dog and just loves being with her people to whom she's a devoted companion. A home with older, considerate children or only adults would be best for Scully. We were told she has lived with cats but will chase them in a playful way, so a dog-savvy cat would be necessary. Scully was great friends with the laid-back male dog in her former foster home and wanted to play with him all the time. However, she's dog-reactive in social situations. Scully will chase, lunge and bark at dogs in social situations and MUST always be securely leashed on walks and around any dog that is not the resident dog in her home (NO exceptions). She may also pull, so a harness that is clipped to her collar will help secure her. A fenced-in yard is strongly suggested. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
