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.
CHAUNCEY - Shih Tzu mix, male, 4 years, 17 lbs. CHAUNCEY is an adorable dog who is doing well in his foster home. He loves his squeaky toys and loves to play fetch. He is working on housebreaking and crate-training, and is great on the leash. CHAUNCEY plays nicely with his foster mom and doesn't mind when she takes a toy away from him. He seems to be good with most dogs, provided they have a proper introduction. Click here see more pictures of Chauncey on Petfinder.com.
COLBEY - 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.
HADEN - Pointer mix, male, 2-3 years, 58 lbs. Haden is a very sweet, playful, and social dog. Each time he meets a new person, he either wants to kiss them or sit on their lap! Haden gets along great with his foster brother and they love to play in the snow together. He does pretty well with the kitten in his foster home and likes to play with her, but still learning about proper dog-kitten manners and might need a refresher course if he goes to live in a home with cats. He is crate trained and for the most part housebroken. Haden is an awesome dog and would most likely do well in any home. He is heartworm positive and will be treated at Peppertree's expense.

HOLLI - Yellow Lab, female, ~6 years, 69 lbs. Holli's foster family canít imagine a more perfect dog. She loves men, women, big dogs, little dogs, male dogs, female dogs, nice cats, grouchy cats, car rides, all toys, and all food and treats. Her only limits right now are physical. Holli has been diagnosed with ACL tears in both back legs and a meniscus tear in one of them. She will require two surgeries, about 2 months apart, which will be paid for by Peppertree. There will be a considerable rehab period after each operation. Despite the fact that she must be experiencing much discomfort, the orthopedic vet described her as a lovely dog - happy as a lark! This labby girl is a perfect example of the kind of dog Peppertree is happy to help. We are collecting donations to help pay for Holli's surgeries. If you wish to help, please click here.
ISABELLA - Coonhound/Beagle mix, female, 7 months, ~40 lbs. Isabella is an incredibly sweet, submissive young girl. She is very gentle, fairly calm and loves affection. Isabella missed out on some basic training as a younger pup, so she is still working on commands such as "sit" and "down." Isabella true to her breed can be vocal, but when she is with her human companion all she wants to do is cuddle. Isabella seems to do well with other dogs and with cats. While she can be a bit shy and unsure with new people at first, after she gets to know them she has done great with with all humans large and small.
JAYDA - Collie/Boxer mix, female, ~1Ĺ years. Jayda is a sweet young southern girl who is crate trained and potty trained! She enjoys other dogs and loves to play tug of war with them. Jayda also loves watching for the kids to get off the bus, and greets them at the door with a wagging tail and lots of kisses. Jayda has no food issues and willingly share her food and water. She is working on basic commands in her foster home, and while she loves the leash and going for walks, she is not so sure about the car! She won't get in willingly, but once in, Jayda is fine and she sits back and enjoys the ride. Jayda is very friendly and affectionate meeting new people, especially the guys at a local car parts store, who all love her. Click here see more pictures of Jayda on Petfinder.com.
LIZA - Whippet/Lab mix, female, 4-5 months. Liza was transferred to Peppertree by Sochi Dogs (sochidogs.org), a rescue that saves street dogs in Sochi, Russia. Liza is described by her foster family as a sweet girl, who is shy at first but quickly warms up. She is bouncy in the house, enjoying playtime with her canine foster sister, and seems to have an affinity for human children as well! She is not a barker although be prepared for puppy kisses! Liza has good household manners, is crate trained and will use puppy pads if needed. She does have some fear of going outside and being on a leash, and could use some training in that area. She has been around cats and has done great.
MARTY - Italian greyhound mix, male, 3 years old, 17 pounds. Marty is a small white dog with pale blond markings. He was turned into a New York City shelter because the owner had too many dogs. He is underweight so needs to put on a few pounds. Marty is shy at first, but warms up quickly and is very affectionate. He loves to cuddle and will give kisses and his paw to get your attention. He likes to put his head in your lap so that he can roll over and have belly rubs. His prior owner said that he is wonderful with kids. Marty seems good so far with other dogs in the foster home. He walks well on a leash and we are working on crate training. How he is with cats is unknown.
STEWIE - Beagle, male, 6-8 years, 45 lbs. STEWIE is a friendly beagle who has a wonderful personality and is good with other dogs, cats and children. He is house trained and walks well on his leash with only a little bit of pulling, as heís following his nose! STEWIE is just an easy dog to have around. He is used to living with other dogs and does not do well in a house without canine companions, so he is looking for a forever home with a new furry friend or two. Because of his Beagle tendency to wander, a fenced-in yard is a must for STEWIE.
