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.
ARMSTRONG - Lab/Basset mix, male, ~12 years. Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever mix, male, 12 years, 66 lbs. Armstrong, who prefers Arnie, has a handsome lab face, cute basset hound legs and a jolly personality. He's a heart stealer who loves people, other dogs, baths, belly rubs, short walks and ambling around the yard. Arnie enjoys following his foster parents around the house and will also lay quietly at their feet. Our man of few words wisely avoids drama with other dogs, is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated in the house. Arnie would be most comfortable in a home that doesn't require him to climb many stairs because of his short and stocky build. Our super-sweet boy is currently dieting and asked us to mention that "Bassadors" make wonderful weight loss companions for their family and friends. We don't yet know how he is with cats.
BOCELLI - Golden mix, male, 5 years, 65 lbs. Bocelli wants nothing more than to be by your side all day and will give you hugs if you ask him to! He is a very sweet, laid back guy who gets along wonderfully with the other 3 dogs in his foster home. Bocelli is blind, but that doesn't stop him from loving life; it's rare that his tail stops wagging, especially when he hears your voice. He responds very well to sound to help him navigate and know where to find you for some affection. A quiet home where there's someone around to keep him company during the day would be perfect for Bocelli. He would love having another laid back doggy pal to relax with, but would also be great as an only dog since that means he will get your undivided attention. Bocelli is housebroken and has perfect manners in the house so doesn't need to be crated when left alone. We're not completely sure how he is with cats, but think he would have no issues living with one. Due to his blindness, Bocelli won't be placed in a home with young children.
DOMINO - Pointer mix, male, 11-12 weeks. Domino is an awesome pup who gets along well with kids and dogs. He would do well in a home with a young playful dog, but size doesn't matter to him - big or small, he will take them on! Potty training is going well but of course he is getting lots of attention and guidance from his foster family, which will need to be continued in her adoptive home. Domino is quite interested in cats, but can be redirected. Still, it would help if any cat in his new home is a dog-savvy one. Crate training is going well. Domino is a great little guy who will be a great family dog!
ELI - Beagle, male, 1 year old. Being evaluated in a foster home.
FREYA - Pit bull mix, female, 5 years, 37 lbs. Freya is a happy, happy dog that is going to be very devoted to her owner. Her foster mom walks her on a 40 foot leash through open fields and Freya rarely goes out to the end of the leash. She's very happy to walk right by your side and look up at you to see what you're going to ask of her. If you're looking for a jogging partner she'll help you out but she's just as happy to snuggle up to you on the couch. She is good with other dogs and is quiet in her crate at night. She's very gentle taking treats and waits patiently for you to put her food bowl down. Peanut butter is a favorite treat. When she gets excited she does jump on you a bit but a firm "no" will make her go right into the sit position where she will wait until you tell her it's "OK". She's also been known to give "puppy pinches" when she's really happy. She's good with other dogs. Cats are unknown at this time.
NADINE - Black Lab mix, female, 4 years. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
REMI - Retriever, male. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
SEVERIDE - Aussie/Lab mix, male, ~1 year, 44 lbs. Sevvy is a handsome, sweet boy with beautiful markings and the prettiest eyes. His foster parents adore him and say that he enjoys the outdoors and playing chase the tennis ball and chase the dog. He's a happy, vigorous young fellow who enjoys daily walks and 'runs like the wind' in their fenced-in yard. Sevvy always greets his foster parents affectionately when they return home. He appreciates attention from people, but can be timid in a crowd. He is sometimes shy with other dogs, but a calm confident dog in his new home might help him to settle in more easily. He is fine with cats. Sevvy is deaf and doesn't seem to have any peripheral vision, but the vision he does have is very acute and he enjoys watching TV. He's a bright boy who knows how to sit/lay from a hand signal and could learn more commands with time and patience. He's a special boy looking for the right home.
TERRENCE - Boxer/hound mix, male, 7 years. Terrence is a handsome, friendly gent whose foster family raves about him. They adore his gentle, sweet, and affectionate nature and report that he's wonderful with guests visiting his foster home, including teenagers. He's completely housebroken, non-destructive in the house, and loves to go for car rides. He has mastered the commands "sit", "down", "high five", and "shake". Terrence loves to hike and take long walks (he once walked the Appalachian trail!), fetching sticks, and grassy back scratches. He is very interested in wildlife and will keep your back yard free from those pesky squirrels and rabbits! We think Terrence is an outstanding dog who really merits a great home. While this easy-going boy loves people, he doesn't wish to share his home with other dogs or cats. Terrence has a thyroid condition that's easily treated with an inexpensive medication and his adoption fee is partially sponsored.
