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.

BeasleyBEASLEY - 5 year old male Brussels Griffon - Looking for a low key companion that enjoys snuggling on the couch as much as he enjoys a walk? Beasley might just be the fellow for you. This handsome guy is sweet and quite the personality once he gets to know you. Beasley does well with dogs his size and energy level but he does not enjoy pesky puppies that want to play, and he needs to be placed in an adult home as the hustle and bustle of kids can be overwhelming for a little dog like him. Beasley does like to announce his people's comings and goings so he is not the right dog for an apartment but any other house with a lap that needs a dog would suit him just fine. For more information on Beasley please contact

BrewskiBREWSKI - 9 year old male pit bull mix - Brewskie is a family dog who will easily go from playing fetch with the kids in the yard to relaxing in the house. This perfect buddy has excellent house manners and will greet your guests with an enthusiastic wiggle before running to get a toy. Brewskie has lived with small children and not only is he very patient with them, he really enjoys their company. Brewskie has never lived with cats and would likely do best as an only dog, or with a mellow female. He really is an easy dog, a walk a day and he's content to hang out on the couch with you while you play video games or watch reality TV - and aren't all those things better with a Brewskie? To find out more about meeting Brewskie please call or e-mail .

ClydeCLYDE - 9 year old male Golden Retriever - Clyde is one of those dogs who likes the simple life; a fenced yard, people to pet him, a bed to sleep on and he's happy. He was a jogger in his day but is slowing down a bit now and is content to hang around the house. Clyde has great house manners, even goes to his bed when told, and knows basic obedience. Being eager to please and highly food motivated Clyde is a quick study too. You will always know when someone is at the door as he is a great alert dog too. Clyde has never lived with other dogs but seems to enjoy their company, he will need to be introduced to know for sure if he'll be a match with a canine companion though. He has always been an only dog and has never had to share before. Clyde does live with two cats and is excellent with them, even shares his bed! Clyde requires an adult only home and a physical fence, but other than that his needs are simple - food, water, lots of pets and lots of love! If you are interested in meeting Clyde please fill out an adoption application through Peppertree Rescue.

MaggieMAGGIE - 5 year old female pit bull - 55 lb - Are you a runner or an athlete looking for a training partner? Do you have an active family? Maggie is a beautiful 5 year old pit bull currently living in the Albany area. She is housebroken, crate trained, and treadmill trained. She is excellent on a leash, especially when going out for runs, which she loves all year long. Her favorite activities include playing hide and seek with her ball, and playing fetch especially with a frisbee. Maggie learns quickly and has amazing focus, especially when treats are involved. She is very intelligent and athletic, and would do best in an active household. Because she can be boisterous and get very excited, Maggie should not be placed in a home with small children. Maggie is selective about living with and meeting other dogs, and should be cat tested. She absolutely loves people and can't help herself when it comes to giving lots of kisses. Maggie loves to end her day with lots of snuggles and is great at hogging the blankets. Interested adopters should complete the adoption application on or

SevinSEVIN - Sevin is a great girl, 4 years old, UTD on everything and as sweet as can be. She's a kind and fun dog. She makes a nice walking partner, will jog, or carry a pack on trails. She loves to be outside, plays tug and enjoys attention. She's a family type dog, and will do very well with older children. She's been taught her basic commands as well as some others. Clipping her nails is simple and easy, as well as bathing, grooming, and any other care required of her. Sevin lives with other dogs currently, however she is not cat-friendly, and does best with male dogs. If you're interested in Sevin please call 756-8913.

FlintFLINT - Hi, it's me Flint, are you looking for a cute dog to snuggle with. I'm small right know but I will get bigger, even when I get big I'm still going to want to cuddle. I live with three 2-legged foster siblings and I love them all, My favorite one is the eight year old, she is a great snuggler. I also have four 4 legged foster siblings that really love me. My other two 4-legged foster siblings are older and I'm very respectful around them. I'm a fast learner I know sit, stay and I'm working on shake. I also sit and wait nicely for my food. I love going for walks, I walk very nicely on leash and I love to swim. I love everyone I meet whether they're 2-legged or 4-legged. So what are you waiting for adopt me already. [From his foster mom: Flint was placed and started training as a seizure alert dog. There was a tragedy in the family, and he was returned through no fault of his own. He is a smart, cute, 35# dog with a soft coat and an outgoing personality. Flint takes Proin daily as the likely result of a birth defect. Proin is a very inexpensive medicine.] For more information about Flint, email .

LandonLANDON - Landon- (~ 04/2014) He is a larger dog and his weight is around 65 pounds. His coat is gorgeous and his body is solid. There is one big question mark on exactly what his mix is, but whatever the mix is it has created one awesome dog. He is very dog friendly, but absolutely loves people and is very affectionate (hugging, kissing, and snuggling) He will roll on his side or back for a chest and belly rub. He is just a large teddy bear. He currently knows sit, lay down, stay, come, touch, focus and basic command of leave it. He has a good handle on basic house manners and taking care of his business outside. He neutered and is up to date on his vaccinations. If interested in Landon contact Diane at

LuluLULU - Two-year-old female American Bulldog. Upstate Underdog believes every dog has a superpower, and Lulu’s superpower is finding the most comfortable place in the house to nap. (Just watch her locate the bed closest to the fireplace on a chilly night. It’s amazing!) She is a big, gorgeous, loyal, goofy girl who’s looking for a family able to give her a consistent spot in their home and heart. She does hang out with other dogs, but she doesn’t have an “off switch”, so she needs to be the only dog in the house or live with humans who will consistently monitor all dog-dog interactions to make sure she doesn’t continue playing when the other dog wants a break. She chases cats, so a cat-free home is also needed. Lulu’s forever humans need to be sturdy because when she gets excited she still tends to jump and/or pull a lot, so a home with kids or other easily-knocked-over people won’t work. You can be Lulu’s superhero by finding out more about her and our adoption process at or e-mail them at

OswaldOSWALD - 12 years young (approx) - Wirehaired Dachshund mix. Calling all small dog lovers! Oswald has arrived just in time for Senior Pet Adoption Month - although honestly we'd rather you not tell him he's a senior, he does not seem to realize it himself, in his mind he's a spring chicken! Oswald turned up as a stray and found himself at Animal Protective Foundation. There he got himself fixed up, neutered, and is now ready to find a new home. Oswald just loves humans, all humans as far as we can tell. He’s very affectionate and full of energy now that he’s feeling well. He loves toys and loves to play. It is remarkable that Oswald might be 12 years old! For more information about Oswald, please contact Michelle at 374-3944.

RozROZ - (~ DOB 05/14) She is a happy, sweet and very pretty girl. She is smart and learns things quickly. She know basic commands, sit, down, lay down, touch , focus, stay, come and leave it.

Stevie wonderSTEVIE WONDER - 7 year old male pit bull mix - There are many things we can tell you about Stevie Wonder, but the first and likely the most obvious is that he is blind. And without a doubt this could be a challenge for many dogs. But Stevie gets along incredibly well. Once he learns his surroundings he settles right in. So if you think of discounting him because of his lack of sight please keep an open mind. When it comes to personality, to meet Stevie is to absolutely LOVE him. He is joyful and sweet natured and it is really easy to connect with him. He is good with other friendly dogs, totally housebroken and generally an easy keeper. He is interested in cats but he can certainly be kept away from them with a few well placed baby gates. He has taken basic obedience classes and is a well mannered fellow. If you are interested in meeting Stevie Wonder then please fill out an application with Out of the Pits at - he is a lovely dog that has been in and out of rescue a few times, and we are eager to see him find his forever home

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.
