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
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.
