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
SOCHI - Australian Shepherd mix, female, 9 months, 42 lbs. Sochi's heritage is a bit of a mystery, we know her mom was a herding dog on a farm, maybe an Aussie, maybe a Border Collie, maybe a little of both, and her dad was just passing through, but, we suspect he may have been a beagle, based on her size and coat. Sochi's heritage is that of an old-fashioned farm dog - and like the farm dogs she is devoted, smart and loves to be outside with her people, or on the couch with her people - she just loves people! Sochi has excellent house manners, does not need a crate, and is very good with children. She has never lived with another dog but loves to play and is learning how much fun it can be! Sochi has a soft personality and presents as a serious little pup but once she relaxes she shows her silly side - she loves to play tug and to fetch tennis balls and just run around a be a puppy - she is an active girl but does know how to settle in the house, as long as she gets her walks in. Sochi is the type of pup that would love to join her family on weekend hikes, or for play time in the yard - she just loves being with her people!
