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.

OnyxONYX - 6 year old male Lab mix - Onyx LOVES people and has been around kids of all ages. He is full of excitement when he meets people, he is always eager to find new people to pet him. He is house trained and has good house manners. Onyx is used to having a yard and would love a nice fenced place to play, he does enjoy walks but he has not been on many and is working on his leash manners. Onyx lives with a cat and has learned to be very patient with them, so he would likely do well with a dog savvy cat. And he has also lived with small children and does very well with them. Onyx has not been around many other dogs and seems to be overwhelmed by making new friends so he would likely do best as an only dog, although with a slow introduction he might be ready for a canine friend. To meet Onyx please submit an adoption application through Peppertree Rescue and we will pass it along to his family.

Frida and gretaFRIDA AND GRETA - 8 year old female German Shepherds. This beautiful bonded pair of German Shepherds is in need of a new home through no fault of their own. Their family's 20 month old son has been found to have severe allergies to dogs and they are affecting his health quite negatively despite their best efforts with medications, vaccuuming, brushing, etc. The family has made the hard decision to find them a new home. They are your classic family dogs and all you think of when you think of German Shepherds - loyal, smart, sweet and people loving. They have lived with a cat briefly and were fine, but unfortunately they do not do well meeting new dogs. They are in excellent health and super easy keepers - low energy, good house manners. They just like to be pet and hang out with their person, or maybe play a game of fetch if you have the time. Please call 802-779-9251 if you think you might be the right home for these two special girls. They are very loved and the family is eager to find a home that will love them as much as they do.
