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.

CarsonCARSON - Shepherd mix, male, 2-3 years. Just arrived from a NYC shelter and receiving medical care.

ColbeyCOLBEY - Tree Walking Coonhound/Lab mix, male, 1 1/2 years, 55 lbs. Colbey is a great family dog. He loves everyone and other dogs. He hasn't been cat tested but met some at the vet's and had only minimal interest. Colby is house trained and knows basic commands. He can play all day but settles down nicely for a snuggle after play time.

HeleneHELENE - Sato, female, 2-3 years old. What is a Sato you might ask? Well, a Sato is a Puerto Rican street dog. And how did a Sato get to Upstate NY you may be asking next? Well, darling Helene had some puppies that were pulled by a Rottweiler rescue in another state, thinking they were Rotties, and they could not bear to leave Mom behind. When she arrived and was 35 pounds and delicate as a fawn they realized she was definitely not a Rottweiler, but she was clearly a loving dog, a devoted mother, and very sweet. Eager to find her a home they asked us if we had room for this "Nottie" (not a Rottie, get it?) as they were worried she would not get interest with their group. We had already agreed to take some of the puppies, Kerry and Elena who have already been placed. When we met Helene, we knew she was meant to be a Peppertree dog from the moment she gently approached one of our volunteers and tentatively touched her paw to their leg. Helene is an unassuming girl who does not demand love or attention, but blossoms when she receives it. And she still knows to have fun and loves to play with other dogs. She has amazing dog skills and is very social. Helene has good house manners, and while she is still perfecting her house breaking she is almost there. She is good with children, and does well with a dog savvy cat. Helene will make some family very lucky.

Severide, cgcSEVERIDE, CGC - Australian Shepherd Mix, male, ~1 year, 44 lbs. Sevvy is a handsome, sweet boy, who has just earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate! Heís full of life and loves to play tag with other dogs, swim, or just run around in the yard. Sevvy loves to go on walks and makes a great running partner! Inside, he is a bit shy. It seems as if he never had much experience living indoors but he is housebroken and is making great strides in feeling more and more comfortable with being indoors. Sevvy will need a family that will continue to encourage and care for him as he learns what living inside is all about. He cannot hear but it certainly doesnít hold him back from doing the same things as a typical dog. Heís eager to please and knows some basic commands (using hand signals.) Sevvy is good with cats. Since he cannot hear, we prefer a home with a fenced in yard for his own safety. Click here to see more pictures of SEVERIDE on

SpotSPOT - Pointer mix, male, 2 years, 40 lbs. Spot is a wonderful, happy, and playful dog! He loves everyone he meets whether itís children, other dogs, or cats. Spot is very affectionate and likes to shower his people with lots of kisses. He lives with three other dogs in his foster home and his favorite game to play with them is tug of war. When he's not playing with his canine friends, Spot enjoys snuggling on the couch so he can get lots of pets from his foster family. He is great on a leash and loves to go for rides in the car. Spot is eager to please and is a quick learner.

XenaXENA - Pit bull, female, 5-6 years, 50 lbs. Pit bull, female, 5-6 years, 50 lbs. Xena is a perfect lady with a sweet, submissive nature. She loves hugs and is happy to go for a long walk but otherwise would prefer cuddling up on a nice warm bed. She is housebroken, rarely barks and not destructive when left alone. Xena can be rather reserved in the house and seems as if she is still coming out of her shell, but she really perks when she goes outside. She loves going on long, brisk walks and riding in the car. Xena was found as a stray and then stayed in a shelter in Delaware County, New York for seven months. She is still learning to be confident when encountering other dogs and will require an owner who can be patient with her and continue to help her work through her fear issues with other dogs. Xena would most likely be fine with calm dogs and so far as done great with her foster mom's two cats.
