Neighbor's Corner

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.

GeorgiaGEORGIA - 1 year old French Bulldog/Beagle mix, 20 lbs. Georgia loves you and she hasn't even met you yet! Mostly because Georgia loves everyone and everything - life is so exciting to her! She is Miss Enthusiasm! (Please forgive the excessive exclamation points, they just suit her bouncy personality.) Georgia is a happy girl who has a lot of love to give, although she is in need of a bit of training. She is just so excited about things she cannot help herself and sometimes forgets her manners and will jump and lick you! Or jump on another dog, or just jump! Georgia is very much a puppy in spirit. She is amazing with people and just loves to love. She will snuggle for hours and just wants to soak up the attention. Georgia is good with children as well, although she can sometimes overwhelm them if they are not used to an enthusiastic dog. She is good with other dogs most of the time, but is a bossy girl who likes to be in charge, and does not always take no for an answer - she has the Frenchie stubbornness! Georgia is crate trained and house trained. Unfortunately, as much as they love her Georgia's family cannot offer her the time and exercise she needs, and want to see her in a home where she can get the attention she deserves. They love her and know she is going to flourish in the right home. If you are interested in adopting Georgia please fill out an application through Peppertree Rescue.

PuppyPUPPY - Puppy - 1.5 year old male Corgi/Fox Terrier mix - about 20 lb - Don't let his size fool you, Puppy is not actually a puppy, although he has the puppy joie de vivre. This happy fellow loves to smile, and you cannot help but smile around him too. Puppy is house trained, crate trained, loves to go on walks and he loves playing ball. He is a very well rounded guy. Puppy is very bright and learns quickly, although sometimes he thinks doing his own thing is more fun then listening, unless you have treats, he always listens when you have treats. Puppy lives with older children and does well with them although he may not do well with small children based on his size, and energy. He is currently an only dog but does enjoy play dates with his canine cousin and does well with dogs, as long as they don't mind that the herding breed in him makes him like being the one in charge. Puppy is a great nap partner and loves to cuddle - he will also sometimes perch on your shoulder to look out the window - they thought he might be part parrot but it was not included in his DNA profile when they had him tested. He also makes very adorable Snoopy noises when he yawns - you cannot help but love him. If you are interested in Puppy please fill out an application, and it will be forwarded to his family. The family is responsible for placing Puppy and will be doing all communication.

ChesterCHESTER - 1 year old male German Shorthaired Pointer - Chester is a handsome liver purebred pointer in search of an active, loving home. He currently lives with a family who loves him very much but unfortunately realizes they cannot offer him the type of home he needs. Chester is an active boy that loves to play fetch, romp with other dogs, and snuggle with his family. But Chester also loves to learn and thrives when his mind is working - he is a working breed after all! Just don't ask him to hunt, he does not do much pointing for a pointer. Chester would love a home that can keep his body and brain occupied - giving him time to run (maybe jog?), play with other dogs, and that will continue with his education. Maybe even try agility or fly-ball! He is a regular at Shawna's Dogs and even though he is just a year old he has already attended Basic Obedience, Loose Leash Walking and Self Control/Focus Classes and excelled. He is a bit of a teacher's pet and known to suck up to the person with food. Chester knows commands such as sit, down, watch me, leave it, drop it, and is working on come when called. He also attends daycare at Shawna’s Dogs and has MANY dog friends whom he plays very well with. Chester has lived with children but would likely to best in a quiet home. He has never lived with cats so we are not sure how he will do. Chester is a loyal and devoted dog who becomes very bonded to his family, but he sometimes can be nervous when meeting new people or having strangers unexpectedly walk into his unfenced yard when he is on his tie-out. His new owners need to be willing to provide him with positive training so that he may overcome his nervousness and gain more confidence in situations like this. If you are interested in Chester and would like more information on him, please contact Shawna at 518-937-2544.

ClaraCLARA - Labrador Retriever/Vizsla mix, female, adult. Meet our beautiful Clara! If you are looking for a running partner or just a best friend, look no further! Clara is what we call a brown wrapper dog - the outside package is plain but the inside is breathtaking! Clara came to us pregnant and skin and bones after being rescued from a high kill shelter. This beautiful girl is an absolute doll. She has allowed us to do everything with her. Clearly Clara did not have a good start in life as is evident by the callouses on her bottom, not to mention the premature graying. She loves to play but also loves to be with her humans. Playful with other dogs, she does not push anyone, she is even good with cats. Clara is very patient and is absolutely wonderful with children. Typical for her breed, Clara will go over a 3 foot fence so a 5 or 6 foot fence is required for Clara. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Clara, please complete an application at our website, Please note our adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions.

JacksonJACKSON - This is Jackson, he is a young male German Shepherd mix that is looking for a new home. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and is around 14 months old. He is a smart energetic boy who needs lots of exercise. Contact Kathy Baker if you would be interested in adopting this dog, 518 661 6609.

RandyRANDY - (~DOB 1/10/15) Randy is a southern puppy and just arrived in New York State on 4/11 and is settling into his foster home. He is a sweet puppy. He likes to play with the other puppies in the home, but he prefers to be in your lap playing with a toy or you. He loves receiving affection while he supplies lots of kisses. He is current on vaccinations. Please contact Diane if interested in Randy at

RascalRASCAL - is an 8yr old Golden Retriever mix. He is neutered and up to date on shots. He is mellow and sweet but still wants to go for walks and play! He rides great in the car too. He was brought to Regional Animal Shelter in Gloversville, NY with a severe allergy which had been untreated for a long time. His fur was missing and he was feeling rather yucky. They have nursed him back to health and now he is a beautiful, happy, tail wagging boy! He is good with cats but is stressed at the shelter and prefers to avoid other dogs - he may be able to live with the right canine companion though. But when you have Rascal in your life, you really won't need another dog - he is all you could need in a dog! Don't let his age fool you, this boy has a lot of life to live and even more love to give. To anyone who might be able to provide the loving home he truly deserves, please contact Renee at the shelter: 518-725-5956. Thank you!!

RomeoROMEO - 2-3 neutered male Rottweiler mix. Romeo is at a local shelter, where he has been since July 2014 waiting for his forever home! Romeo is very in tune with the shelter staff and would make someone an extraordinary pet. He has amazing focus and has already learned sit, down, and wait and is working on heeling off leash in the play area. Romeo would be too much with cats but does enjoy other dogs' company. He would probably do best with a female canine friend. He has been sitting quietly in his kennel and has had no interest. Won't you consider this sweet boy today? Please contact the Delaware Valley Humane Society at for more information.
