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
ABU - Miniature Pinscher mix, male, 9 years, 9 lbs. From the streets of NYC, we bring you our new monkey Abu! Much like his namesake from Disney's Aladdin, Abu is a happy little fellow who is sure to make you smile. He knows his commands and some tricks, and loves to show off for treats. Abu gets along with the other dogs in his foster home, but he really lives to be with people. He is a quiet, mellow boy who is happy to lay by your feet, preferably huddled under his favorite blanket (he is an expert at rolling himself into a burrito!). Of course, if you find yourself in need of some cuddle time, Abu is very affectionate and enjoys being held and cuddled. He has not been tested with cats, but we suspect he would be fine. We will not place him with children under 10 because of his small size. He is crate-trained, rides great in the car, and his foster family has yet to hear him bark. Abu is an adorable little boy who would make a wonderful addition to a lucky family.
