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
RANDY - Shepherd mix, male, 2 years, ~80 lbs. Randy is a handsome and well-mannered boy who was found as a stray in TN and hand-picked for Peppertree because of his great temperament. He is in a foster home with a young child and does well with her; Randy is in fact friendly with people of any age! Randy enjoys chasing the cats in his foster home but it appears to be playful. Whether he would be OK with a cat depends on if the cat would let him know who is in charge! Randy is housebroken and comes and gives his foster mom a lick when he needs to go out. He listens well and knows some basic commands. We believe he would be happy with another dog in the home but probably OK without one too. Randy is heartworm positive and undergoing treatment for that at Peppertree's expense. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our 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.
