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.
CORDUROY - Husky/retriever mix, male, 2 years, 55 lbs. Corduroy is a big mush. He was first spotted pulling food out of dumpsters and giving it to his smaller dog buddies that couldn't reach that high. What a sweetheart! As you can imagine, there's no resource guarding for this pup! He's willing to share any of his toys, even food, with any other animal; dog, human, or otherwise! Corduroy is great with dogs, cats, and kids, although he's been known to jump, so if the child is younger than about 12 they'll need to be pretty hardy and not mind paws on their shoulders once in a while! We are teaching him not to jump and he's catching on pretty quick though. He loves being pet and snuggling up to his people but also has no problem going to lie on the couch for some quiet time. For anyone familiar with the children's book, our Corduroy, too, is just looking for a friend to take him home and sew his button back on! *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.
DICKENS - Hound mix, male, 4 years, 55 lbs. Dickens came to us from a SC shelter where he was picked up as a stray. He is a mellow, sweet gentleman who flops over for a belly rub when you approach him. He seems to have a medium energy level, loves his walks and is learning his leash manners. At the dog park, Dickens was delighted to have a playmate and truly looked like he was smiling as he played at the park. He has wonderful house manners and is content to lie on his dog bed and take a nap after his walks. He is also crate trained. We donít know how he would be with cats or children, however Dickens is very submissive so he might be fine. Chickens, however, are another matter! He must rid the world of them! The first few days after he arrived he was anxious and frightened, but he has been gaining confidence with his new routine and is coming out of his shell. Dickens is hoping for a home that will give him the stability and love he deserves.
EEYORE - Foxhound mix, male, 4 years.
FRISKIE - Italian greyhound/rat terrier mix, male, 6 years, 15 lbs. Friskie ended up in a Tennessee shelter after his owner passed away. His foster home reports he is a real cuddlebug and has gotten along well with everyone he has met, including the cranky cat in the home! And he absolutely loves to snuggle with children. Friskie is well behaved in the house and crates nicely when you leave him. He is also good on a leash. He is so happy to be in a home again - won't you consider making him part of your family? *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.

MILA - Wirehaired terrier mix, female, 7 years, 15 lbs. True to her terrier lineage Mila is a spunky girl, and maybe a bit bossy, though she lives happily with the two dogs in her foster home and enjoys taking walks with them. She is endearing and cute as a button, and once comfortable in her surroundings is affectionate and playful. Also as one would expect of a terrier, Mila will bark upon meeting people or dogs but then settles down nicely. She is quick to make new friends and will become your shadow before you know it! Mila is housebroken and does not need to be crated as she has very nice house manners. When she wants a little attention, she will roll right over and present her tummy for a good rub, and when she's feeling frisky, her antics will make you smile - so much "bravado" for a 15 lb pooch! The one cat she was tested with seemed to make her want to get away as fast as possible, so maybe she would be fine with others - we just don't know for sure. Mila is hoping for that second chance at a happy new beginning with a loving and supportive adopter. She would make a wonderful companion for a quiet home that would appreciate her bright presence. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.
