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).

Peppertree Special Pet
KYLIE - Rottie mix, female, 6-8 years old. Kylie is a smart, sweet, loyal girl that came to us from a GA shelter in rough physical shape but is now healthy, happy and ready for a new home, past ready! Kylie has been with us for a while, and it is hard to say who is more eager for her to find the perfect home, Kylie or Peppertree. Thankfully she has been very patient as we try to find her the perfect fit. Kylie has excellent house manners. She is housebroken and crate trained, although she doesn't need to be crated when left alone. What she does need is belly rubs, and lots of them - Kylie thrives on affection. (Well, affection and meatballs. She really likes meatballs.) Kylie also enjoys children and would likely do okay with a dog savvy cat. While there are some dogs Kylie is friendly with, she does not do well with all dogs, and she needs a slow introduction over a long period of time before she feels comfortable with them. She really would prefer to be the only dog in the home. Kylie is also working to prove her smarts by participating in a Canine Good Citizen class - rumor has it she is doing really well. A portion of KYLIE's adoption fee is being sponsored by Pet Connection. Won't you please consider welcoming her into your home and completing her journey toward a better life?

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.
