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.
BEAUTY - Collie/Shepherd mix, female, ~10 years, 50 lbs. BEAUTY is a lovely and happy girl who makes friends with everyone she meets. She gets really excited when she sees the leash because she knows itís time for her walk! She also enjoys going for rides in the car. BEAUTY is very polite and has great house manners and wants nothing more than to be with her people. She has lived with cats and will chase them if they run, but we think she might be ok with dog-savvy ones. Click here see more pictures of BEAUTY on Petfinder.com.
BRADLEY - Black lab mix, male, ~4 years. BRADLEY is a smallish black lab retriever mix, weighing about 42 lbs. He is about 4 years old. According to his foster, he is one of the nicest dogs around. He is housebroken, good in the crate, and definitely not a barker. Since his arrival, his foster has not heard him bark at all. BRADLEY came to us as a result of an owner surrender to a local shelter. He is friendly to all including other dogs. We donít yet know how he would be with cats, but our guess is that he would be fine and would want to be friends. He hasnít been spending too much time in the yard, but we do know that he loves to play ball and will bring the ball back, well at least to within 8 feet. He is loving and charming and sweet, and just everything desirable in a pet. It would be nice if he had a pal to hang out with, but that would not be a necessity.
CONNOR - Shih tzu mix, male, 6 years, 15 lbs. Just arrived and being evaluated in a foster home.
LEWEY - Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd mix, male, 2 years, 60 lbs. LEWEY is a sweet young boy looking for an active forever companion. True to his breed combination, he is a loyal dog and wants to be with his person. It takes LEWEY a little while to warm up to new people, but once he knows you are his friend, he is very sweet. He needs plenty of exercise to be at his best. LEWEY loves to go jogging and hiking. He rides well in the car and is good on the leash. He has a high prey drive so he should not live with cats. He gets along with other dogs but can play a little rough; for this reason we recommend he not go to a home with young children. LEWEY is a good snuggler and loves to share a sandwich.

MAPLE - Black Mouth Cur Mix, female, 4 years, 41 lbs. MAPLE was found as a stray at a NYC shelter. She was noted by shelter staff to be extremely sweet, although very emaciated. She has been receiving much love (and food!) at her foster home. She gets on well with other dogs, but either doesn't know how to play or isn't very interested in playing. MAPLE loves all people she meets, and if she had her way, would probably be snuggling on the couch with her human all day! She gets on with children, although due to her sweet and gentle nature, we would prefer older children. Click here see more pictures of MAPLE on Petfinder.com.
MESA - German Shepherd, female. MESA is a stunningly beautiful purebred German Shepherd who was found by Animal Control wandering the streets. She wants nothing more than a home to call her own and a family to love. We believe she is approximately 6 years old. MESA has been spayed, and some further vetting is needed, for which Peppertree will cover the cost. She is wonderful with all dogs, people and children. Cats are an unknown, but we are optimistic she will pay them no mind. As with most German Shepherds, she is a worrier and can be vocal about that until MESA feels that she and her family are safe and secure. Click here to see more pictures of MESA on Petfinder.com.
MISS DOLLY - Pit bull mix, female, approx. 2 years. New to Peppertree and being evaluated in a foster home.
RILEY - Bone Mouth Shar Pei/Pit Bull mix, male, ~1 year, 50 lbs. RILEY is a happy and friendly boy who loves people, especially his family. He has had to overcome a lot after being picked up as an injured stray with two broken femurs. After months of therapy and support he still exemplifies wonderful characteristics for any breed - he is smart, loyal, loving and playful. He has been raised around other animals including a cat and a dog, and has had a lot of socialization and been exposed to many new experiences. He loves long walks, playing toss, and learning new commands - in just a couple months heís learned sit, down, stay, with me, off, wait, up, leave it, track it, and ok. RILEY is currently enrolled in training and hopes to complete his Canine Good Citizen certification from the AKC soon. He lives in a home with a cat and a toddler, and does great with all. RILEY is playful and wants to be part of any family activity--he will always be by your side, a true protector. He is crate trained and housebroken. RILEY is also a huge snuggler and loves belly rubs! He is very food motivated and will thrive with an active person or family who is willing to continue with training. In return you will have an eternally committed, loving, and intelligent best friend. Click here to see more pictures of RILEY on Petfinder.com.
SYDNEY - Border Collie/Lab mix, female, 2 years, 40 lbs. Sydney is a beautiful, sweet, and loving little girl from a downstate shelter. She has excellent house manners and is an expert in sit and shake. Sydney generally tends to ignore cats unless they run, then obviously she thinks that means they want to play with her. She gets along with other dogs out in social situations but doesn't like to share the spotlight with other dogs at home. For this reason she might be best as the only dog in the household. She can be a little shy but once she gets to know you she bonds quickly and stongly. Sydney is a great off-leash dog and took a 6 mile hike recently where she was a dream off leash the whole time.
