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.
GIA, CGC - Pit bull mix, female, 5 years, 50 lbs. Gia's mantra is run, jump, swim, repeat! Our exuberant and fun-loving girl enjoys dock diving, swimming, agility, jogging, fetching balls and squeak toys. Gia is a Canine Good Citizen who thinks that cuddling with her people is an Olympic sport. While she's 100% comfortable in a crate, Gia would much rather be with her humans. She enjoys being a couch potato in the house and burns off her energy outdoors. Gia gets along famously with the two male dogs in her foster home and has impeccable house manners. Some of her favorite things include peanut butter, Greek yogurt and rope toys (which are super fun!) Our sweet girl would benefit from a home that understands the energy, power and strength of Gia. Because of her strong prey drive and her self-appointed mission to rid the world of squirrels and rabbits, a fenced-in yard is required. Gia also needs a cat-free home.

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.
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!
TURBO TAX DOT COM - Boxer, male, 5 years. We admit Turbo Tax Dot Com may be a silly name, but this boy is kind of a silly Boxer. When we met him words like cuddly, goofy, sweet, and smushy were mentioned. And yes, he's a boxer so we may have also mentioned dribbly, drooly and a face only a mother could love. But we quickly shushed those people because clearly they do not understand boxers! This handsome fellow is good with other dogs, though he does like to be in charge, so a mellow female doggy companion might be the best fit. He is fine with cats and LOVES children. Turbo is excellent in the car and has wonderful leash manners. He came to us with some health issues that needed medical attention, but he is on the mend and eager to find his forever home.

VELMA - Terrier/whippet mix, female, 8 years, 20 lbs. Velma’s owner passed away and she found herself in a shelter because there was no one who could take her in. Having led a darn happy life, the shelter environment was very hard on her and it was decided that rescue would be the best option for her. She appears to be a terrier/whippet mix, but no one knows for sure! When first introduced Velma is skittish, but she quickly comes around and becomes a serious lovebug. She has kisses to give at any time you may feel the need. She is happily living with 2 other dogs in her foster home. She is a little dog with a BIG personality, a dog who has no problem telling bigger dogs that she’s the boss. Of course, when the big dog says “no way”, she happily prances away to check on her human. Velma will joyfully announce the arrival of visitors and would make an excellent watchdog. She likes to keep her people close, is not happy when left alone, but recovers quickly and waits patiently for your return. Her foster mom is hard pressed to do anything but smile at her little antics. And from her first day in foster care, she has not required crating. Her house manners are excellent, completely housebroken, a little accident when she first arrived and that was that. She would be a wonderful family or companion dog, but would do best with children over 8 years old due to her size. We would like a home with a fenced-in yard for Miss Velma.
