Privately-Owned Dogs Evaluated by Peppertree

The dogs are still living with their owners but need to find a new home. Each of these dogs has been evaluated by Peppertree and the descriptions are accurate based on our assessment. (We must note, however, that we do not have the detailed knowledge that we gain about dogs that are actually in the program and in our own foster homes.)

As space and time permit, we may be taking some, perhaps all, of these dogs into our program based on availability of appropriate foster homes. Our priority, however, must always be the equally-qualified dogs who are in shelters and have no more time left. In the meantime, you are encouraged to consider these dogs and to arrange a meeting if you feel they may be suitable for your home. The owner's contact information is listed below the description. (Where Peppertree has agreed to do the screening, that will be indicated.)

If you think that you might be interested in fostering one of these dogs for Peppertree, please email Whenever we are informed by an owner that a dog in this category is available to come to a clinic, a description of the dog will be included in the clinic announcement sent to all active applicants.

Neighbor's Corner dogs will be listed for 3 months. If the listing has expired and the dog is still available, it is the responsibility of the listing party to send in an updated description and information.

Please note: The dogs listed below are not yet in the Peppertree program. For information on any of the dogs listed below, please refer to the contact information that is listed in each dog's description.

MaxMAX - 4 year old male - Yorkshire Terrier/Pomeranian - Max is as cute as a button and sweet as can be. He is an affectionate guy that loves to snuggle and be with his person, and likes to be carried around as much as he likes going for walks. Max is very connected and knows when you are sad and need some extra love, and is happy to provide it. He is house trained, has good house manners, and does well with other dogs and cats too! Max has never been around children and seems a little unsure of small kids, but would do fine with children 6 years old and up who are respectful of his size. Max is looking for a new home because he does not like to be left alone, and gets anxious. His family works during the day and while they have tried to help Max feel secure, they feel a home with someone who is around more will be better for him - even though they are very sad to say good-bye. If you are interested in Max, please fill out an application with Peppertree Rescue (, and we will forward it along to his family.

NikoNIKO - 3 year old male Beagle/German Shepherd mix, 43 lb. Niko is hoping you will consider letting him enter into your home and your heart. Niko is a smart dog who loves his people, and loves to snuggle, so much so that you might find him nudging your hand to remind you that he is far more fun than the TV. He knows his basic obedience and loves to play games like fetch, although fetch can sometimes become a game of keep away if Niko has his way! He is all about fun and love - his family calls him a love sponge. Unfortunately, Niko had a rough start in life and that has left him with some baggage, he does not like to be crated, and he does not like to be left alone but as long as he is left with a treat and his routine is followed he is okay, he just needs a bit of patience and would prefer someone who is around more often than they are gone. Niko can also sometimes guard the water dish from other animals, likely related to his early days as a stray. He is fine with people but he does not like to share his water with his canine sibling, and will try to drink it all before the other dog, leaving his family to wonder if deep down Niko would be happier as an only dog. Although Niko could live with a dog who is a right fit – someone who will play with him and let him be the boss. Niko has never been around children but his owners feel he would do well with older children who will appreciate his enthusiastic spirit. Niko cannot live with cats, as he will chase them. He has been Heartworm tested (4DX - neg x 4), vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPP, Lyme & Bordetella, has had regular monthly Heartworm and flea preventative. He is very loving, knows basic obedience, and would come with all his “stuff.” Please help us find the best place for Niko, where he can be his happiest, as well as bring his new caretakers as much happiness as they give to him! If you are interested in Niko please fill out an application through Peppertree and we will forward it to his owners.

Roxy and kodaROXY AND KODA - are two middle aged, female huskies whose owner must sell her home and move into an assisted living facility. These dogs are the love of her life and the family is devastated to have to give them up. Koda and Roxy are sisters, both around eight years old, in good health, spayed, and have all of the necessary vaccinations. Koda (white) is blind and depends on her sister Roxy for assistance, so we need to keep them together. They both have wonderful temperaments. We are looking for someone to provide them with a safe and loving home. Please help us, they deserve all the love in the world and we refuse to bring them to a pound! Please contact Tyler by e-mail at or Valerie by phone, (518) 641-2666, or email,

LarryLARRY - Larry’s German Spitz breeding is impeccably handsome and we wouldn’t be surprised if somebody paid good money for him. His shining little 3 or 4 year-old spirit makes him just as beautiful to the heart as he is to the eye. It’s surprising that he was found on the streets of Schenectady, never claimed from his 5 day hold, and nearly put down. This loving little dog is the type that likes to fully lean in with all 22 pounds, curling in for constant contact with you as you stroke his long, glossy, black fur. His bright brown eyes gaze lovingly into your own and he’s happiest when cuddling or playing. If you bend down to pick him up, he instinctively knows to relax and be lifted without wiggling. For more information about Larry, see his listing at .

PoochPOOCH - Lab mix, female, 4 years old. Pooch is the All-American Family Adventure Dog, perfect for parents, kids, dogs, cats, or all of the above. Her Labrador side is wonderfully loyal, as she lovingly locks eyes on her favorite people. And the road is her best friend, as long as her family is by her side. Pooch loves, loves, loves the car! No longer a puppy, she won’t bounce out of her skin, knock over the kids, or chew up the house. And, at 4 years of age, she’ll offer many wonderful years of adoration to every family member her heart touches. Housebroken and well mannered, Pooch has no need for a crate. Please save this beautiful girl from drowning in her own sadness. Pooch was well cared for, spayed, living with a pack of two other dogs and cats as well as her kids and parents, but they had to give her up due to family circumstances. To learn more about Pooch, visit her page at
