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.

Mr. manMR. MAN - 4 year old male Lab/Rottweiler mix - 85 lb - Mr. Man is a big dog with a big heart! Friendly and loving, this boy loves going to the dog park to play, he has excellent canine social skills! In the house he is well behaved too. Mr. Man is crate trained and while he may chew on his bed now and then he will go to his crate when asked, knows "move back," "paw," "wait" and a bunch of other commands. He loves to play with his toys and is a devoted, loving boy with a real goofy side, although when you first meet him he seems a bit reserved and unassuming - unless you are at the dog park that is! At the dog park he likes to let loose and play. Mr. Man lived with other dogs when he was younger but has been an only dog for a while, we suspect he'll do well with other dogs though. He is a pretty soft boy and can be a bit stubborn, but overall he wants so make his person happy. He has been around cats to visit and does well, but he has never lived with a cat regularly and would likely need an introduction to be sure. If you want to meet this big, handsome lug, please fill out an application through Peppertree Rescue and we will pass it along to his owner.

A helping hand to other rescues.

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

FreddieFREDDIE - ~ 2 years old. Pit mix with a blue fawn or blue brindle coat. Freddie has a sweet loving personality and is very happy living in a foster home instead of a shelter. He is very much enjoying having a yard to exploring and playing with his new doggie friends. He absolutely loves the water. His leash skills are not bad. He is current on all vaccinations and is neutered. Please contact Diane if interested in Freddie at

PearlPEARL - six year old girl female Rottie/shepherd mix, approx 60 lbs. Her exact lineage is unknown as Pearl was a stray from New York, but what we do know is she is a lovely dog. She started out as a mystery - unsure with her surroundings and taking time to relax and feel safe after being a stray. But as she did Pearl blossomed into a fun-loving, friendly girl who is dog social and loves attention, but she is not likely to want to live with cats. She has been in boarding since April with For the Love of Dogs Rottweiler Rescue in NH and has not found a home yet as she is just not quite Rottie enough for their adopters, too small, too furry, and with those charming half-up ears, she is just not quite a Rottie - so they want to reach out to other rescues to help find this great girl the amazing home she deserves. Once you hug her soft and thick coat you will be a goner. If you are interested in her you can fill out an application at, or e-mail with any questions.

ScrappySCRAPPY - All-American mix, male, ~10 months old. Scrappy is a nice, active boy who gets along with other dogs. He is neutered and vetted. He needs some work on manners, but he is a smart boy and once he gets into a home and has a decent outlet for his energy, we expect he will settle down and be a great companion. A home with a canine companion who enjoys his rough-and-tumble style of playing would be perfect for him. This is a young dog with a lot of potential in the right home! We do not know about cats. For more information about Scrappy, email .

StellaSTELLA - Stella is a gorgeous 5 year-old who we believe is a Belgian Tervuren/Corgi/Golden Retriever mix. She was adopted from another rescue at age 1 and lived happily for four years with a loving family. Tearfully, they had to surrender her when one member became ill. Since then, she has lived with a loving foster family in Westchester County, NY. Cautious of strangers, Stella took several days to make the transition and bond with her foster family. Ever since, she has been an absolutely charming and low-maintenance companion. Stella does best with a human who is her alpha companion; loving, but clearly in charge so she can let down her protective tendencies and just be a dog. She has been an absolutely delightful dog who becomes extremely attached to her human - just watch her playing with her foster daddy in this video! She loves taking walks, jogs, and car rides, and will be by your side wherever you go. She is totally housebroken and never goes up on the furniture; Stella is 100% low-maintenance inside the house. She will do well in a home without young children and where she can be an only pet. If you are patient and loving and if you are looking for a best friend who just likes to be near you, asks for very little, and warns you when someone is at the door - Stella is waiting for you! To read more about Stella and to find out how you can apply to adopt her, please see her complete bio at . Stella is up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and is spayed. Contact Donna at about Stella.

SeamusSEAMUS - Seamus is a Redbone Coonhound mix (mom was a Redbone)--born 1/10/14. He is neutered, 65 lbs. Like many Coonhounds, he is full of energy, very vocal, and loves to run and follow his nose (fenced-in yard is a must), but also enjoys snuggling. Seamus did well in basic obedience school and is up to date with vaccinations. He would do best in a home with adults or older children (he loves his 11 year old human buddy), a fenced yard, and as the only pet. Please call Bryan at 518-495-4482 if you are interested in Seamus.

ValorVALOR - Valor is a ten month old male that was pulled from a high-kill KY shelter. He is a wonderful boy who will make a great addition to any home.
