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
BAYOU - Coonhound mix, male, ~8 years, 57 lbs. What a lovable character this tall, handsome, stately fellow is! True to his hound roots Bayou will sing to you if you ask, and he is vocal when he is excited, which is part of his happy charm. He does get excited when he sees other dogs and wants to greet them, so be prepared for a melodic walk if you live in a busy area. Bayou has a way of making his presence known, but when he plays with other dogs he is appropriate and social. No cats for this boy, though, please! Like most hounds Bayou is going to need a fenced yard as his nose often drives his thinking, and while he is good on leash he is strong and prone to following his nose. However, when it comes to people there are few dogs more lovable and gentle then Bayou; he especially enjoys children. He is a sweet soul who is very eager to make his family happy.
