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.
ANNA - Lab mix, female, 2 years, 40 lbs. This sweet southern gal hails from Georgia and oozes charm to prove it. She has completely smitten her foster family, their relatives, neighbors, and friends so much that she almost didn't make up here to find her forever family where she truly belongs. Anna is terrific with kids, adults, other dogs, and is only a bit curious about cats. She plays well with other dogs. She would probably be fine in a home with younger children about 4 and older. Anna likes to run and play so if you have a large yard or like to run or take long walks she would enjoy that, too. Anna is pretty amazing in that her foster mom says she already comes when called and stays with her in the dog park or other places off leash. She has potential to be a great off leash hiking or running companion. She enjoys lounging on the back porch or a cool floor when relaxing. She walks fairly well on a leash and is working on "heel" but it's hard when there are so many interesting things to smell and people to greet! Anna is fully house trained and can use a dog door. She rides quietly and well in the car. Anna is such a sweet and even mannered girl there is no doubt she will bring much joy to her forever family. She is mildly heartworm positive, and will be treated at Peppertree's expense.
ARMSTRONG - Lab/Basset mix, male, ~12 years. Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever mix, male, 12 years, 66 lbs. Armstrong, who prefers Arnie, has a handsome lab face, cute basset hound legs and a jolly personality. He's a heart stealer who loves people, other dogs, baths, belly rubs, short walks and ambling around the yard. Arnie enjoys following his foster parents around the house and will also lay quietly at their feet. Our man of few words wisely avoids drama with other dogs, is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated in the house. Arnie would be most comfortable in a home that doesn't require him to climb many stairs because of his short and stocky build. Our super-sweet boy is currently dieting and asked us to mention that "Bassadors" make wonderful weight loss companions for their family and friends. We don't yet know how he is with cats.
ENRIQUE - Retriever, male, 2 year, 62 lbs. Just arrived and being evaluated in a foster home.
FOXY - Husky/Shep/Spitz? mix, female, 3 years, 34 lbs. Foxy is a wonderful southern girl with a very soft temperament. She loves other dogs and is very gentle, yet playful. Foxy is submissive toward dogs and people and is indifferent to cats. She enjoys walks and is good on a leash. Her foster home thinks Foxy would be fine with kids. She arrived recently from Georgia and we will post more about her as her foster home gets to know her better.
HARRY POTTER - Golden Retriever Mix, male, 1-2 years, 45lbs. This stunning boy came up from Georgia but you would never even know it. He came right into his foster home like he'd lived there his whole life. Harry has been sweet and loving with everyone he's met. He is very calm around children, even the 4-year-old in his foster home. Harry is very playful with other dogs. He loves to run in the yard and to take walks, and is looking for a home with a fenced-in yard as he is not good off-leash. Harry is a very smart boy who has even started to learn some basic commands. He is crate trained, house broken and uses a doggie door. Harry loves car rides and is very calm in the car. This sweet boy is ready to fill your life with lots of love!
NADINE - Black Lab mix, female, 4 years. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
RON WEASLEY - Golden mix, male, 1-2 year old male, <50 lbs. Ron is a sweet, handsome dog and would make a terrific pet for an active family. He is living in a foster home with older children and dogs where his sunny personality has stolen everyone’s heart. Ron hasn't met too many younger children and cats, but having such an easy going disposition he will most likely get on well with kitties and kids under 7. You’d never know this well behaved, affectionate, smart, expressive pup was a stray. He is crate trained, house-broken (95%), quiet (rarely barks), and rides well in the car. Ron is ready to take home and love!
SEVERIDE - Aussie/Lab mix, male, ~1 year, 44 lbs. Sevvy is a handsome, sweet boy with beautiful markings and the prettiest eyes. His foster parents adore him and say that he enjoys the outdoors and playing chase the tennis ball and chase the dog. He's a happy, vigorous young fellow who enjoys daily walks and 'runs like the wind' in their fenced-in yard. Sevvy always greets his foster parents affectionately when they return home. He appreciates attention from people, but can be timid in a crowd. He is sometimes shy with other dogs, but a calm confident dog in his new home might help him to settle in more easily. He is fine with cats. Sevvy is deaf and doesn't seem to have any peripheral vision, but the vision he does have is very acute and he enjoys watching TV. He's a bright boy who knows how to sit/lay from a hand signal and could learn more commands with time and patience. He's a special boy looking for the right home.
TERRENCE - Boxer/hound mix, male, 7 years. Terrence is a handsome, friendly gent whose foster family raves about him. They adore his gentle, sweet, and affectionate nature and report that he's wonderful with guests visiting his foster home, including teenagers. He's completely housebroken, non-destructive in the house, and loves to go for car rides. He has mastered the commands "sit", "down", "high five", and "shake". Terrence loves to hike and take long walks (he once walked the Appalachian trail!), fetching sticks, and grassy back scratches. He is very interested in wildlife and will keep your back yard free from those pesky squirrels and rabbits! We think Terrence is an outstanding dog who really merits a great home. While this easy-going boy loves people, he doesn't wish to share his home with other dogs or cats. Terrence has a thyroid condition that's easily treated with an inexpensive medication and his adoption fee is partially sponsored.
THEODORE - Lab/Beagle/Pitbull mix, male, 6 years, 62 lbs. Theo is a sweetie, a loving, loyal, boy who wants nothing more than to snuggle with you and be your best friend. He loves to run and play and is filled with a lot of enthusiasm, so an active family is a must for him. We would love to see Theo placed in a home with another dog, but he can be a bit bossy with some, so we feel his ideal canine companion will be a female. He just loves puppies and is very nurturing with them - it is so cute! He gets along with cats. Theo is wonderful with kids of all ages, but because of his size and enthusiasm, we feel he would be best with children older than 5 years. Theo is a very easy dog who knows basic commands. He has had a lot of change in his life and needs someone who will love him as much as he will love them. Click here see more pictures of Theodore on Petfinder.com. Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the 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.
