Peppertree Rescue Dogs

IMPORTANT: The first step in the adoption process is to complete an adoption application. We have a limited number of volunteers and we do not have the resources to respond to inquiries about specific dogs from non-applicants. If you are interested in a Peppertree dog you must submit an application. NO EXCEPTIONS!

IMPORTANT: If you are looking to surrender your dog to Peppertree, please see our Surrendering Your Dog Section of this web site.


The application is available online (and via a downloadable PDF file). If you have completed a similar application for another group and have a copy, we will accept that; mail it to PO Box 2396, Albany NY 12220.

If you are out of the immediate Capital District area and cannot attend a Peppertree Clinic in the Albany, NY area, we ask that you provide a home visit report from a local rescue group with your application. You will need to travel to meet our volunteers and our dogs.

Applicants will receive regular notification regarding the dogs available for adoption and will be invited to our clinics to meet our dogs.

BoltBOLT - Mountain cur mix, male, 1 year, 40 lbs. Bolt has been through many changes in his young life. He was found, in rough shape, when he tried to get into the ER of a Tennessee hospital. In spite of his difficulties, he is affectionate, playful, and likes nothing better than a walk and a belly rub. He will cuddle next to you on the couch, but he also likes quiet time on his bed. Bolt is housebroken and has very good house manners. At night he sleeps quietly on his bed. Bolt does well with kids and other dogs. He didn’t pay any attention to the cats when cat tested. He does get worried when left home alone, so we are looking for a home with another dog to keep him company when you're out. This seems to help him to be calm while he waits for his people to return. When Bolt was found he had a bad infection in his foot and had to have a toe amputated. Despite walking with a limp, he still cheerfully greets everyone he meets and investigates everything. Won’t you give this lovable, unflappable guy a chance at a new life? *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.

CarterCARTER - German Shepherd mix, female, 4 years, 58 lbs. Carter is a big girl with a big heart. She enjoys running, snuggling on the couch and hanging out with her people. Among other things she enjoys games such as “Give me a bone and I will hide it and you find it” or the classic “fetch but I will run until you can get it from me.” Carter (also known as Princess) has quite the personality. She is an adventurer when she wants to be but a couch potato as well. If you are looking for someone to be right at the door when you come home, or a jogging/adventure dog, this is definitely your dog. She enjoys the company of other easy-going dogs, and would love a relaxed canine companion. She does seem to be afraid of children, so we will be placing her in a adult-only home. Click here see Carter on Pet Connection! *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.

Gia, cgcGIA, CGC - Pit bull mix, female, 5 years, 50 lbs. Gia is a happy girl who loves dock diving, agility, jogging, fetching balls, squeak toys, swimming and car rides. Our Canine Good Citizen loves to be with her people and gets along famously with the two male dogs in her foster home. Gia is a wonderful house guest who is crate trained, although she doesn't require crating because of her impeccable house manners. She's a medium-energy girl who just needs a daily walk and some play time. A quiet, calm home with older children or just adults would be best for her. Because of her strong prey drive and her self-appointed mission to rid the world of squirrels and rabbits, a fenced-in yard is required. Gia also needs a cat-free home.

GizzyGIZZY - Chihuahua/Terrier mix, male, 1 year, 12 lbs. Gizzy is a pint-sized, happy-go-lucky guy who loves all people and gets along very well with other dogs. He enjoys children and does great with visitors, but currently needs an adult-only home that can focus on his training. He would also benefit from an older canine companion to teach him manners. A fenced yard would be perfect for Gizzy, but he could go without as long as he has an outlet for his energy. He enjoys playing fetch and would also make a great jogging buddy. Gizzy is a wonderful boy and his foster family feels that he will make a great companion. He is definitely a "velcro dog" and will shower his person with constant attention as he follows them from room to room. Cats are unknown. *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.

JupiterJUPITER - Beagle, male, 9 years, 40 lbs. Jupiter is a sweet older gentleman who loves everyone and wants lots of attention. He gets along with other dogs but doesn't really play. Cats are unknown but he is so mellow we are guessing he would be fine with them. Jupiter is a very go-with-the-flow kind of dog. He is not a barker and loves to go for walks and sniff everything. Jupiter has nice house manners and doesn't need to be crated when you leave him. He will follow you around the house waiting for a pat or for you to drop a piece of food. Jupiter will make someone a great companion. *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.

KotaKOTA - Rottweiler, male, 5-7 years, 85 lbs. Kota came from SC where an individual who found him wandering got him to safety. Once this this goofy guy feels he can trust you, he loves to snuggle up with you and be by your side - he'll be your extra shadow! Kota does not like other dogs up in his personal space, but might enjoy the companionship of another mellow dog. He is kid-friendly and we think he would be ok in a home with a dog savvy cat. Kota enjoys taking a walk around the neighborhood and is a gentleman on the leash. He knows some basic commands like sit, down and come. Kota will take treats gently from your hand, but does not like other animals near his food bowl, so needs to be fed in his own space. Kota is currently undergoing heartworm treatment which will be completed at Peppertree's expense. He is housebroken and is kennel trained, but enjoys snuggling with you in bed at night. This big ol' bear loves to play with his toys and hop in the car for a spin around the town. Kota is a mellow boy, a gentle giant who is very laid back. He is very smart and eager to please. Kota is dedicated to his person/people and is best 1 on 1 or in a small group. This wonderful big dog will make a great addition to a home with Rottweiler experience.*Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

Lucky louLUCKY LOU - German Shepherd mix, male, 10 years, 98 lbs. Lucky Lou is a steadfast, loyal companion who needs nothing more than a quiet daily stroll and the company of his people. He is a gentle, trusting and loving boy who is the perfect height to pet while you are relaxing on your sofa. His favorite things include bones, belly and nose rubs, ear scratches, being brushed, long naps, sleeping on your feet and just knowing you are nearby. He gets along well with other dogs and lives with cats. He is good with older children but has not been tested with younger children. Lucky Lou has a few age-related conditions to his knee/hip, and possible hearing loss. Because of these challenges, he would be better suited to a single level home, and a low fenced yard would make him very happy but is not required. He walks well on a leash, and due to possible hearing loss, he should not be off leash. Lucky Lou adapts quickly to his new surroundings and loves going with you anywhere! He is truly a gracious, sweet older gentleman with impeccable house manners. Lucky Lou will make one owner truly lucky! *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.

NelsonNELSON - Lab/Bull Terrier mix, male, 2 years, 50 lbs. Nelson is a true companion dog. If he gets to be with his person (he's particularly fond of women) he's happy. Whether it's a run, a drive, a walk, or visiting friends, Nelson is up for the adventure. At home, if his person is sitting down and relaxing, he is likely curled up in a ball napping close by. Nelson is completely housebroken, and has excellent house manners. He'd likely enjoy a home with another dog, and he should not be housed with cats. He continues to work on his leash manners, and with training in general; he is responsive and eager to please. He knows "wait" and "down," and will reliably stop at intersections and to let people by (a person with a stroller, joggers, etc.) while walking. He has shown no resource guarding behavior. Nelson is a little skittish, and doesn't like loud and unexpected sounds, so he probably would prefer a quiet country or suburban home. As far as his energy level is concerned, he will match his person's level of activity on any given day, relaxing or running, but enjoys his walks a great deal. As long as he's with his person, he's a happy guy. *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.

RandyRANDY - Shepherd mix, male, 2 years, ~80 lbs. Randy is a handsome and well-mannered boy who was found as a stray in TN and hand-picked for Peppertree because of his great temperament. He is in a foster home with a young child and does well with her; Randy is in fact friendly with people of any age! Randy enjoys chasing the cats in his foster home but it appears to be playful. Whether he would be OK with a cat depends on if the cat would let him know who is in charge! Randy is housebroken and comes and gives his foster mom a lick when he needs to go out. He listens well and knows some basic commands. We believe he would be happy with another dog in the home but probably OK without one too. Randy is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment for that at Peppertree's expense. *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.

Riley roo and miss peanutRILEY ROO and MISS PEANUT - Riley Roo (Beagle, male, 8 years) and Miss Peanut (Puggle, female, 9 years) are a bonded pair who think they are actually brother and sister - don't try to tell them otherwise! Miss Peanut doesn't act her age. While she's well-mannered and loves to snuggle on your lap, if there are squirrels to chase, she'll keep at it for hours. She would love to have a fenced-in yard where she can play. Riley Roo is a cuddler who loves to play outside, but also likes to have plenty of time for naps - especially if he can burrow his face under a blanket! He greets everyone happily and is easygoing all around. Both dogs are housetrained and don't need to be crated. We are told by the shelter that sent them to Peppertree that they are fine with cats. We know from their foster family that they are great with kids! These two lovable seniors have proven to their foster family that two dogs are no more work than one, and will come to their lucky adopters with a special reduced adoption fee.

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.

ScullySCULLY - 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.

TabbyTABBY - Feist mix, female, 2 years, 40 lbs. Tabby loves other dogs! She never met a dog she has not tried to befriend, and even loves to snuggle with her canine companions (she likes to snuggle with her feline companions too, but they do not seem as willing.) Another dog in the home is very important for Tabby because she is a shy girl and a confident canine really helps her be brave, as she is not always sure about the world. We are slowly helping Tabby realize that she no longer has to worry and that the world can be a fun place but Tabby is kind of like Piglet from Winnie the Pooh, and always imagining the worst. Tabby has good house manners and is house trained, but she does need a puppy-proofed home as she will steal a shoe or a sock if she gets the chance. She is a real toy hoarder as well and all toys in the house seem to end up in Tabby's bed. If you are looking for a dog who travels and enjoys running errands then Tabby is not the dog for you, she is happiest at home with family, although sometimes even at home she can get a little overwhelmed by loud noises and she needs a safe spot to retreat to. Because of that Tabby will need an adult home, small kids are unpredictable and Tabby likes predictability! Going on walks can be very scary for Tabby, with lots of noise, cars and people, and while she is improving and will take a leashed walk in the quiet woods with canine friends, she would much rather be in her yard, playing with a canine buddy or chasing squirrels. Because of her shyness Tabby will need a home with a fenced yard and will never be a dog you can take off leash. Tabby will likely not be at many clinics as they can be busy and loud, and we are making sure Tabby's experiences outside the home are relaxing and fun as she builds confidence. Tabby is a sweet dog, possibly the sweetest dog her foster home has had come through their doors, and we know there is a home just waiting for her.

TurnerTURNER - Mastiff/Boxer, male, 8 years, 90 lbs. Turner is a mellow and friendly Boxer/Mastiff mix who was surrendered to a shelter because his family was moving. In his foster home he is well behaved and gets along with several dogs, big and small; he does like to chase cats, however! Turner has some arthritis in his back legs due to old injuries but he gets around pretty well for an older gent. He has very good house manners and a nice calm energy level. *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.

ViolaVIOLA - Shepherd mix, female, ~6 years. Viola is a very sweet dog who does well with other dogs - is interested and happy around them, even though she doesn’t really want to engage in play. Where her personality really shines is around people. She is happiest when she is with you, and just being close is fine, but if you're petting her, that's the best! In new situations, she first takes some time to scope out the situation, then once she realizes that all is well, she settles in and makes herself at home. She is fine with cats. Children make her nervous, though, so Viola is looking for a quiet, adult-only home. *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.

In the future, we will be combining our efforts in order to more effectively promote the dogs and puppies in both our programs with the common goal of finding loving, forever homes for them. Please feel free to visit our websites at http://www.peppertree.org and http://www.helporphanpuppies.org.
