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
KELSO - Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees (with a dash of St. Bernard). Male, 10 years, 100 lbs. Kelso is an 8-9 year old stray from the streets of NYC who came in to Peppertree in poor shape with pneumonia and hair loss. He has made a good recovery. Kelso is the proverbial gentle giant at 100 plus pounds. He loves people and loves to be petted and to hang around with you. He is fine with other dogs though he can be a bit possessive of toys. Cats are unknown. He has no issues with children, though due to his age we would only place with children 12 and older as Kelso appreciates a quiet environment.
