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
MARTIN - Fox terrier mix, male, 1 year, 20 lbs. Martin comes to us by way of Tennessee and is a true Southern gentleman. A fox terrier mix, this boy is all about the snuggles and gives great kisses. His foster parents call him a "wiener dog on stilts", since he's got the legs of a doberman under the body of a dachshund. His 20 pound long and lean frame makes him the perfect size for snuggles and play and his wiry coat is low on shedding and even lower on maintenance. As a 1 year old, he's still got plenty of puppy energy (he's an elegant runner!), but more than anything he wants to be with his people, loving on them and watching while they do what people do. Just let him slip right in between you and the arm of your favorite chair and he's in heaven. Martin is great with other dogs, not a big barker, calm in the car, mildly interested in cats but not in an aggressive way. As he settles in to his foster home, he is starting to show his terrier roots and has become very energetic, so he is looking for a home that can provide him with an outlet for that energy.
