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
VIOLA - 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.
