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
CHINA ROSE, CGC - Pit bull mix, female, 6-8 years, 58 lbs. China Rose came to Peppertree from a local shelter. She was in very poor health with many physical ailments due to insufficient veterinary care. She is now in excellent health, having been placed on a proper good food diet and some much needed medication to make her well again. She is very shy at first, but when she relaxes, she blossoms into a wonderful dog! She is eager to please and has excellent house manners. She was adopted by her foster mom, but unfortunately does not get along with the resident dog, a rather cranky geriatric terrier mix. They are a woefully mismatched pair and so China Rose, through no fault of her own, is back to being available for adoption. She is going to class to get her Good Canine Citizen certification, and has been a star in class; she is obedient, intelligent and very eager to please. She will make a welcome addition to the right home. She would do well with another dog who would like to play, as she has a background of being great with other dogs, just not that little old terrier, who doesn't want to be bothered. *Update 7/31/15 - Congratulations to China Rose for earning her Canine Good Citizen certificate!*
