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.
BELLA ROSE - Lab/hound mix, female, 6 years, 60 lbs. Bella Rose is a charming woman of few words who loves to snuggle with her people and thrives in the company of other dogs. Although she's crate trained, she doesn't require one because of her impeccable house manners. Super sweet Bella Rose gets along famously with the two male dogs in her foster home and thoroughly enjoys pack walks with neighborhood dogs. Because she's initially shy with people, we're looking for a quiet home with older children (12 and up), a fenced-in yard and a companion dog(s). She'll be much happier in a peaceful country setting than in the busy city, with all those scary loud noises. Bella Rose is indifferent to cats.
DOLLAR - Plott Hound Mix, male, 3 years, 50 lbs. Dollar is a happy, intelligent, and energetic boy who is learning the routine of being part of a family. Found as a stray outside a Dollar store in TN, he has made remarkable progress learning how to be a good house guest. Because he is enthusiastic about treats, he is easy to train. He has learned "sit" and "down", and we are working on "stay" and "wait" in doggie class. He is housetrained and does well in a crate. Dollar also looks forward to his daily walks, and has very nice leash manners. Although he likes to sniff, as a hound does, he has a low prey drive. Squirrels cross his path; he glances up and continues his quest for scents. He also likes to look back to make sure his human is with him on his adventures. A fenced-in yard would be best for Dollar. He enjoys having a place to run and relax outside. Dollar needs a quiet and predictable home where he can continue his training. He is young and can get excited; a home with children over 12 would be best for this boy. If you are looking for a companion who is active and eager to join you in all group activities, come meet Dollar. Dollar is heartworm positive and being treated at Peppertree’s expense.
GUMBO - Beagle/Basset mix, male, 9 yrs. old, 39 lbs. Attention beagle lovers – this is the dog for you! Found wandering in South Carolina, Gumbo is a charming and sweet natured southern gentleman who loves to be by your side. His tail is always wagging, he is good with other dogs, doesn’t seem to be interested in cats and is great on leash walks. Gumbo is very laid back and enjoys a slow pace during his walks as he is interested in meeting new people and making new furry friends. Gumbo loves to ride in the car, take long naps and to be with his person. Gumbo is deaf and a fenced in yard is required for his new home and older children would be best for him to live with, even though he does love the little ones. He does not bark due to his lack of hearing – so being a quiet beagle makes him even more appealing. A mild mannered guy with a robust mid-section, Gumbo has “Perfect Pet Companion” written all over his furry face. Please attend one of our clinics and meet Gumbo – you won’t be disappointed!
MAXIMILLIAN AND COCOA PUFF - Labs, male, 8 years, 80 lbs.
NEENA - Mountain Cur mix, female, 2 years.
RANDY - Shepherd mix, male, 2 years, ~90 lbs. Randy is the definition of a velcro dog! If you want a devoted canine shadow to follow you around and keep you company in your home, look no further. He loves to be with people, and if you are sitting he is guaranteed to come to your for a pet on the head or a scratch on his back. Randy has excellent house manners, likes his crate, does well with most dogs, and is looking for an adult only home. He is okay with cats although he thinks it can be fun to chase a cat and raid the litter box so a dog savvy cat is required. Randy knows his basic commands and is working on his leash manners, he generally walks very well unless he sees a squirrel or a bunny to chase, then he gets a bit excited! Randy is content to be an only dog, although he would likely share his home with the right dog too. Randy is used to a nice big yard and does like to be outside to play so a suburban or rural setting would be best for him.
TANNER - Lab/pointer? mix, male, 3 years, 48 lbs. Tanner is a very sweet handsome boy who is looking for a family to give all of his love to. Tanner is kind and gentle and would be an amazing therapy dog if you could control the tail. He walks nice on leash and would love to go for daily walks and jogs. After a jog, he would like a snack and a nap with you on the couch. He is house trained, crate trained,and rides well in the car. He is well behaved in public. He gets along with other dogs but would prefer they not be in his space. He would really rather be an only dog getting all of the attention for himself. Cats are unknown at this point.
