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
A SPECIAL FOREVER HOME IS NEEDED FOR ZOEY LYNN - an 8 year old spunky 20lb. beagle girl whose caregivers have nicknamed her The Queen!
This adorable, quirky dog is a survivor who is hoping to meet a special person who can love and care for her in a quiet home where ZOEY LYNN can be the only pet.
The past few years of her life were lived in significant neglect and pain due to a badly healed injury to a hind leg that required its eventual amputation, however ZOEY LYNN epitomizes resilience. She has no trouble getting around on 3 legs but because of the past chronic pain she endured, has learned that by defensively barking at other dogs, she can keep them away and protect herself from harm.
ZOEY LYNN loves people and their affection. She loves to go for walks and rides nicely in a car. She is an independent girl who prefers not to be picked up, and though she can do stairs, it would probably be best if her new home doesn't have too many of them.
If you are the type of person who can honor ZOEY LYNN's well developed character and preferences, she will reward you with her beautiful companionship and Beagle charm.
Peppertree will cover the cost of ZOEY LYNN's veterinary care and medications for life. She is currently taking daily medication and is given a joint support supplement in her meals.
ZOEY LYNN UPDATE - November 2013 - ZL has recently moved to an amazing foster home, and her foster parents report that she is a loving girl who is becoming happier every day, and is really learning how to "be a dog". She has begun to play much more, and now frequently offers a play bow as an invitation to a game of tag or chase. The only catch is that her balance is thrown off by only having 1 back leg, so the play bow sometimes results in ZOEY LYNN losing balance and toppling over, but no worries! She is soon up and happy again. We just love this dog!
