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
RILEY 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. *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.
