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.
BELLS - Lab/hound or Pointer mix, female, 6 years old, 50 lbs. We in Peppertree honestly believe all of our dogs are special but every once in a while an extra special one comes along....and that would be Bells. She came from a shelter in TX where she was surrendered with another dog because of family problems. Her foster home says Bells rates #1 for them of all the many great dogs they have fostered. She is calm, low-moderate energy, good with all in the family including several young children, a cat and a female dog. Bells' house manners are wonderful and she likes to ride in the car. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this Texas belle! *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
BUSTER BROWN - Beagle/Mountain Cur mix, male, 2 years, 35 lbs. Buster Brown is, according to his experienced foster home, one of the most wonderful dogs they have had the pleasure of caring for. He was a stray, as so many wonderful dogs are, in Tennessee, and hand-picked by us for a woman who knows exactly what we look for in a Peppertree dog. Buster is crate trained, not much of a barker, and nearly 100% housebroken. Buster gets along great with the dog and cat living there too. His energy level is moderate and his favorite thing is cuddling! *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

JACK OF HEARTS - Beagle, male, 8 years, 30 lbs. Jack is an adorable little man that wants to be with his people all of the time. He is a great companion dog, a super snuggler and loves to share a snack. Jack is calm and doesn't bark a lot. He loves everyone, kids, and other dogs. He walks well on a leash. He does get nervous with a lot of activity and quick movements. Jack is house trained but has chronic bronchitis and the medicine makes it hard for him to hold it for a full work day. He would love to share his life with a retired person who could give him lots of attention. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

LIZZY - Mountain cur/terrier mix, female, 1-2 years, 35 lbs. Lizzy is a gentle, petite girl who loves to cuddle. She is an incredibly sweet dog. She was found as a stray in Tennessee and we are not sure what her history is, but her foster mom thinks she lived outside. She was nervous and timid when she first came into the house and didnít know what to make of things. Now that she has settled in, she enjoys lying on her dog bed with all her toys, romping in the backyard, and snuggling on any available lap. She is an expert snuggler that will gladly keep your lap warm for you! She has been making great strides in learning what a real life can be like in a home and continues to open up each day. She is house trained and is even beginning to go to the door to let you know when she needs to go out. Lizzy is crate trained but we suspect that she may not even need to be crated as she isn't much of a chewer. She curls up on her dog bed at night and sleeps though the night until it is time to wake up and greet you with a wagging tail. Lizzy absolutely loves her walks and walks very well on the leash. She loves meeting new people and greets them by giving the sweetest little kisses. She loves to play with other dogs and we think she would really love another playful dog in the household to romp around with. She will playfully chase cats so she would need a dog savvy cat. She's just interested and means no harm by her chasing. She is still a little nervous when first getting into the car but once she curls up on the back seat she is a wonderful passenger. Lizzy is ready for a home that will give her the stability and encouragement to help build her self≠-confidence.
MUNSON - Spaniel mix, male, 8 years, 40 lbs. Munson answers to the name Buddy and he listens very well. He's a very sweet little guy that gets along great with dogs, cats, kids, even chickens! He's a low energy friend, content with a couple walks a day combined with a bunch of napping. He currently has the run of his foster home because he has excellent house manners. He is housebroken and non-destructive. Buddy would be the perfect companion for almost any family. He does have some allergies, mainly environmental like grass and trees (ironically he's literally allergic to Pepper Tree!) but we think we have the allergies under control with a combination of a daily med plus weekly to bi-weekly medicated baths. He will need to continue this treatment for the rest of his life, and the cost will be approximately $70/month between the prescription medication and the medicated shampoo. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
NUGGET - Shih Tsu/Maltese mix, female, 1 year. Nugget is a Shih Tsu mix, possibly with a bit of Maltese for good measure. She is about 1 year old, and very petite at about 9.5 pounds. Nugget is working very hard at being house-broken and is doing very well. We donít have a lot of information on her past, only that she was surrendered to a shelter in the Rochester, NY area. She just received her clean bill of health from our vet. Nugget is sweet and just wants to be loved; we donít think she had too much of that in the past. She is fine with other dogs and wants to make friends with all she meets. Nugget is charming and smart, and would happily spend her day following her people around, taking a little nap, and then back to following her people. She likes other dogs, no matter their size. If she had a dog buddy, she would probably divide her time between her people and her canine buddy. We donít know how she would be with cats at this time. Because of her size, we recommend a home with older children. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
QUINTIN - Chihuahua, male, 3-5 years, 5 lbs. Quintin is a little cuddle buddy that wants to be by your side! He is a mellow little guy who generally enjoys following someone around throughout the day. He would love to curl up in your lap all day, or at least sit next to you while you watch TV or work. He is crate trained, OK with cats (he thinks their food is delicious), and housebroken. He responds well to positive reinforcement. Quintin is heartworm positive and is currently undergoing treatment, which is being paid for by Peppertree. Because of his tiny size, we will not place him with young children.
