Peppertree Rescue Dogs on Trial Placement - Adoption Pending
The following dogs are on trial placement in a new home and are not currently available for adoption. All Peppertree adoptions begin with a minimum two-week trial period. The dogs below have been placed in adoptive homes but the adoption is not yet final.
ABBY RAE - Cocker Spaniel, female, 8 years. Cute and spunky best describes this pint-sized pup, but she is also smart and polite! Abby has excellent house manners, enjoys walks, likes stealing rocks and playing keep-away, and like many Cocker Spaniels, packs a lot of personality into a tiny package. Abby is guaranteed to make you smile, and the type of dog that will follow you around the house, helping with chores, or outside supervising your gardening. Inside she will happily snuggle with you on the couch and cuddle with you in the bed. Abby does well with cats and has been around small children but never lived with them, so we are not sure how she'd do in a busy household. Abby has lived with other dogs but cares far more about human companionship than canine, and can be a bit bossy, so, she may not be a match for all other dogs. She is, admittedly, a bit spoiled, but with a dog this adorable it is hard not to be.
DOVER - German Shepherd, male, 2 1/2 years, 60-65 lbs.
JACK SPRAT - Beagle, male, 4 yrs old, 25 lbs. Jack is an adorable beagle who came to Peppertree Rescue with his brother, Biscuit. They are currently in separate foster homes and are adjusting nicely with their foster siblings, but we know it would make them very happy to find a home together - ready-made best friends! If adopted separately, we will be looking for homes with other dogs, as we think they'd be happier and adjust better in a home with at least one canine buddy. Jack loves to snuggle and be a lap dog, sleep next to you at night and will follow you everywhere. He is well mannered, house trained, good on his leash and loves attention. When Jack wags his tail, his whole body wiggles...he is so cute! Jack has never met a cat, so it is unknown how he would react. Jack is a little shy at first, but quickly settles in. He is not much of a barker, but he will bark when someone is at the door or if he hears other dogs barking nearby or on TV. Jack would love a home of his own again, so if you love beagles, come and meet Jack! He is a curious boy with the typical beagle nose, so we'd prefer a home with a fenced yard for him.
JESSIE - Hound/lab mix, female, ~2 years, 40 lbs. How many short straws can a girl get?? Well, just ask Jessie! Sheís had several, but you would never know once you get to know her. She has lost a leg (we donít know why or how), she had pups that all died, she was brought to a vet because she was having problems delivering her babies, and her owners never came back for her after her c-section! How bummed would you be?? Not Jessie - she has a spirit that that is unreal! She is lovable, affectionate, happy, bouncy, playful, active, all on three legs! She would prefer to go up 3 steps versus the ramp at her foster home. Amazing! She is living with 6 other dogs from 140 lbs to 11 lbs and gets along with everyone. She is totally housebroken, has great manners, and loves to be loved. She is awesome with kids. You need to meet Jessie - she is an inspiration! We donít know how she is with cats. She is an awesome girl that will not disappoint you. Wonít you open your heart and home to this beautiful girl? Jessie really deserves a chance to live a happy, playful, carefree life after all she has been through.
LUCAH - Great Pyrenees/German shepherd mix, male, 8 months, 60 lbs. Lucah came to us from Tennessee. His parents were neighborhood dogs who had a fly by night romance, mom a Great Pyrenees and dad a German Shepherd, and boy did they produce one handsome, fuzzy, puppy. For fans of big, fluffy dogs, look no further - Lucah will not disappoint! He is a relaxed and friendly boy who gets along with other dogs, cats and children. Lucah is working on basic commands such as sit, down and stay in his foster home and at his age he should be very trainable. He is being crate-trained and is catching on quickly. Lucah is very playful when he has a canine companion to romp around with, and loves to carry around his rope toy, go for walks, and enjoy a nice car rides. Once his busy day is over, Lucah will curl up and snuggle with you.
MILLIE - Sheltie mix, female, 9 months, 18 lbs.
MURRAY - Lab/hound mix, 7 yrs, ~45 lbs. Murray is a dapper fellow and an easy companion. He has excellent house manners, knows basic obedience, and loves a good walk. He has some pep in his step and would love a nice big yard to run around and sniff after squirrels in, but he also settles down inside and is happy relaxing with family. Murray is good with cats and good with respectful dogs, but he does not have patience for the antics of youngsters, be they human or canine. Murray is excellent with older children but toddlers make him nervous - they are often very loud and unpredictable, and Murray prefers predictability. Who can blame him? Murray is an easy dog to love, and there is one lucky family out there that will discover that first hand. Murray's adoption fee is being reduced by a loving sponsorship donation of $100.
NELSON - Lab/Bull Terrier mix, male, 2 years, 50 lbs.
