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.
CAPRI - Lab/Shepherd mix, female, 1-2 years, ~40 lbs. Capri is a great pup who came up from the south a few weeks ago. When she first entered our program she was incredibly shy and fearful, but over the last few weeks she has really started to come out of her shell. Capri is sweet and affectionate. She will need someone patient and kind to help her gain her confidence, but with this love she will prove to be a loving, loyal companion. Capri enjoys time outside, chewing on bones and most of all time cuddling with a trusted human. Capri is gentle and frankly adorable as she continues to experience life and become more sure of herself.
CHINA ROSE - Pit bull mix, female, 10 years, 58 lbs. There are few souls gentler than China Rose! Her soft fur and eyes match her soft heart, and to meet her is to want to hug her. This girl was turned into a local shelter where she quickly became a staff favorite. She was friendly with everyone and an easy girl to love, but her quiet, sensitive nature left her overlooked next to the more boisterous, outgoing dogs. When our volunteers met her they quickly saw she was a true treasure and she became a Peppertree dog. China Rose is a bit shy and takes time to relax in new situations, but when she does, her golden temperament shines through. China Rose is good with other dogs and kids, cats are unknown. Her house manners are excellent and she loves to take a walk around the neighborhood or a ride in the car. She is the perfect example of an easy keeper, and will make a devoted, loyal companion to a very lucky person.
NIMA - Lab/shepherd mix, female, 9 years, 68 lbs. Nima was surrendered to a local shelter by her owner of 9 years due to issues with their landlord. Poor Nima was just devastated by this change and was not handling it well; given her level of stress, the shelter felt she would do best in a rescue. Thus far Nima has just been the sweetest girl! Her approach is gentle, whether to people, cats or other dogs. While her foster home does not have children, we are told that she has been around kids as young as 2 and done great with them - as well as having lived with birds and rabbits, too! Nima appears to be in camouflage as a walking coffee table, but we have high hopes that this girl will shed her extra weight soon. She loves her walks and otherwise enjoys snoozing by your side or in your lap. Nima does not like crates. She can be left loose in the house although her perfect match may be a retired couple or someone who works from home.
REMINGTON - Golden/lab mix, male, 11-13 years, 63 lbs. Remington is happy spending his day looking for his next meal, racing his foster sister to the back yard, getting some love and taking a nap - repeat! He is super sweet, enjoys the company of other senior canine pals, is respectful of cats, and housebroken. He does not need to be crated as he has excellent house manners. Remington has skipped a couple trips to the dentist in his life as a NYC stray and his teeth are quite worn down, so he needs to be fed moist food. He has some arthritis in his hips so he won't be a jogging partner, but a fenced-in yard would be lovely for him to ramble in if spring ever comes! Remington is just starting to figure out the whole car ride thing and is nervous loading in but then settles well without a sound. He is just a sweet boy who doesn't seek out a lot of attention and is quiet. Remington is looking for a quiet home to spend his golden years in, with older children only because little ones might interrupt his naptime.Click here see more pictures of Remington on Petfinder.com.
RICKY - Chow Chow mix, male, 10 years, 40 lbs. Ricky is an easy going and happy go lucky gentleman who enjoys the simple life: lounging in the sun and sleeping at your feet. He has excellent house manners, is housebroken, doesn't need to be crated, and will only jump on the couch or bed if invited. He's a sweet, slow moving boy whose hearing may not be what it used to be. Ricky will make the perfect companion in almost any environment and does great with other dogs and cats.
SHAYLA - Black Mouth Cur mix, female, 2 years, 30 lbs. Shayla has shown very good house manners and gets along well with other dogs. She is affectionate and gentle. She loves to play and be outdoors in the nice weather. Shayla is a cautious and sometimes timid girl, and we suspect she has not been exposed to many different situations in her life, so she takes some time to adjust to new environments. She is hoping to find a home with someone who is patient and kind and who will help her build up confidence.
SIMBA - Yellow Lab, male, 9 years old, 80 lbs. Simba's last few years have been rough healthwise, but he is now on the mend and ready for the loving forever home he so deserves! Untreated environmental and food allergies left him with a painful skin infection. Now, with medical care and a carefully chosen diet, new fur has started to grow in and he will only get more handsome in the months to come. Because of his allergies, Simba will require a special formula food that is easily available commercially, and for a while longer he will need allergy injections. Simba loves people and is excellent with other dogs; cats are unknown. He has good house manners and would be a great addition to just about any family. His temperament exemplifies what we look for in a Peppertree dog. Simba loves to be with his people. He walks well on a leash and could be an off leash dog in time. He will play ball and frisbee with you as long as you can play.
WALLACE - Beagle, male, 6 years, 40 lbs. Wallace is a sweet guy who gets along well with everyone including adults and small children. He is very good with other dogs, and he would probably be fine with cats. Wallace enjoys lots of affection. He also enjoys lots of treats - maybe too much! He needs to lose some weight, luckily Wallace loves to go for regular walks. He is on an inexpensive thyroid supplement now which should help with his weight loss. He knows some basic commands including 'sit' and 'shake'/'paw'. Wallace will make a nice companion for any family. He is a great buddy! Because beagles tend to follow their noses, a fenced yard is preferred for this sweet boy.
YUKI - Terrier/Chihuahua mix, male, 1 year, 18 lbs. Yuki is doing very well in his foster home. He is definitely too thin but has a healthy appetite and is gaining weight so we hope he will be at a more ideal weight of 20-25 lbs soon. He is playful with the male dog in his foster home and is fine with the senior female pit bull as well. He is housebroken, loves people, and people of all ages seem to love him! Yuki has a lot of charm and likes to be held or be in your lap. His big, beautiful eyes seem to jump out of his tiny head and reflect his happy and friendly disposition. We won't place him in a home with very young children.
