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.
DARBY - Hound mix, male, 3 years, 48 lbs. Darby is a three year old hound mix from Tennessee. He is an enthusiastic, curious affectionate boy who loves his foster family, their friends and neighbors. Darby loves to wrestle and play chase games with other dogs, loves to nap during car rides, is crate trained and housebroken. After a fun day, he loves to sleep in your lap on the sofa. Darby is working on a variety of house manner skills. He has quickly learned to sit before being served his supper bowl. Life here in the northeast seems to have presented many new things to Darby that he may not have previously been exposed to, such as television, doors, and stairs. It is fun watching him as he enjoys learning how to adjust to a more domestic life and it is recommended that Darby live in a house that can provide him with a good balance of structure and fun activity.
NEWTON - Beagle/Lab?, male, ~8 yrs, 35 lbs. Newton loves you already- and you've only just met through a picture! This sweet guy has yet to meet a stranger, or a lap that he isn't comfortable in. He eagerly awaits for you to sit down, and then races to get his favorite spot on the couch - anywhere that is right next to you! He will look right into your eyes and it's as though he knows exactly what kind of day you've had. Newton loves to snuggle, give lots of kisses, and is content just being in his human's presence. Newton is a very relaxed, happy-go-lucky kind of guy who deserves a home that is willing to return all of the love & kisses this charmer has to offer! Newton gets along with dogs of all sizes & he loves children. His overall docile demeanor, easy going attitude and loving disposition makes him the perfect pet for any family!
NORMAN - Hound/pointer mix, male, 7 years, 60 lbs. Norman is a gentle soul who loves, loves, loves people. His tail starts wagging from the moment he spots you and won't stop to even sit down. Norman has beautiful house manners and loves his daily walks. He enjoys exploring the outdoors, and while a fence would be helpful because of his hound nose, it is not required.
Norman lives with cats and older children. He is ok with small children visiting, but would prefer a quiet home without little ones always around. His foster mom feels he was definitely someone's beloved pet, as his house manners are lovely and she says he gives the most gentle kisses while he inches ever so closer to you. The changes since he came to Peppertree have been a lot for him, so a home with consistency and calm may help him settle in more quickly. Norman has plenty of energy for those wanting a wonderful outdoor partner but also loves his snuggle time on a warm dog bed. He is a wonderful dog for those looking for a 'ready-to-go' partner.
ROVER - Retriever mix, 1-2 years, male, 50 lbs. Rover is an energetic young dog who loves playing with his best dog friend, chasing sticks in the back yard, and snuggling on the couch in the evening. Roverís foster mom reports that he is quite a character and keeps them laughing with his antics and adventures. His favorite toy is a found volleyball that he throws around the yard to chase, He will do anything for a treat, and he likes to sneak up onto the couch to be your 50 lb lap dog. Rover has good house manners and is crate-trained, knows basic commands, sits and waits for his food, and does well with other dogs if given the chance for a proper introduction. Rover is learning not to pull while on leash and is doing well with his Halti harness, but he does still get excited over the squirrels and would love a yard with lots of them to chase. Because of his desire to chase, Rover is not able to live with cats and needs an adult-only home. A big fenced-in yard would be the best setting for this boy so he can run and play outdoors, and he thrives in a predictable environment where he knows what to expect and what is expected of him. Although Rover is content as an only dog we feel he would happily share a home with the right companion. Rover is looking for a loving, active home where he can balance his desire to run and play with lots of routine.
