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
SAKURA (aka SAKE) - Retriever mix, female, 5 years old, 52 lbs. Sake is a sweet little girl with a lot of love. Sake came to us with some pretty severe allergies and ear infections which caused a LOT of hair loss and discomfort. Since we've been treating her she's grown back so much of her hair and she keeps growing back more on a daily basis. She is in the process of getting allergy testing, but for now is doing great on her allergy medication. Sake gets along well with the cat in the house, occasionally gets spunky and wants to play, but the cat will have none of that. She gets along well with the resident female dog in her foster home and knows sit, shake, down, and stay, and listens very well if you ask her to get down from the bed or the couch. She'll do anything for a treat, which makes it very easy to train her or give her meds. Sake will need the occasional medicated bath which she tolerates pretty well. And good treats like hot dog chunks make her like it more and more each time! Now that she's feeling better, Sake is really coming into her own. She's housebroken, does well on leash, she's the perfect medium size, and she'd love to meet YOU!
