The primary purpose of Peppertree is to help find homes for dogs in need who represent the character and temperament commonly associated with Golden Retrievers: friendliness, intelligence and a peaceful, loving nature.
In addition to accepting dogs of any breed or mix that meet our temperament requirements, Peppertree is also a recognized Golden Retriever rescue organization (http://www.grca-nrc.org/). We frequently have purebred Goldens available for adoption, and we have an established relationship with Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue (MAGRR). Read about their Northeast Adoption Program here.
Peppertree Special Pet
TABBY - Feist mix, female, 3 years, 40 lbs. It is true, Tabby is a homebody at heart. While other dogs seem to enjoy travel and long walks on the beach Tabby would much rather stay at home and eat microwave popcorn, or maybe curl up with a good toy to chew. Tabby does not get why you would ever want to leave home when home is where her bed and toys are, plus the yard is fun to play in, and the yard has bunnies to chase! Tabby is a true introvert and is often overwhelmed in social situations but when it comes to dogs she has never met a dog she has not tried to befriend. Tabby finds dogs much less overwhelming than people which is one of the reasons why she will need a home with another dog. Tabby also does very well with cats and will try to groom them if given the chance; she is not often given the chance though. Tabby does require a fence because of her shyness, and because her favorite thing to do is hang out in the yard and sniff all the smells. Since Tabby prefers predictability and quiet in her life, a house without children is best for her. She would do fine with visiting children but living with them every day is not for Tabby. Tabby is a sweet dog, possibly the sweetest dog her foster home has had come through their doors, and we know there is a home just waiting for her.
