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
AZALEA - Hound/retriever mix, female, 2-3 years, 50 lbs. Azalea is originally from South Carolina, and her name fits her to perfection, as “flowering ornamental” might be a great way to describe this lovely soul. Of course, our Azalea proudly blooms year round! She is a very gentle, sweet girl who loves receiving and giving affection. Azalea is crate trained and housebroken. She enjoys the company of her foster brother, who is a similar age but a far higher energy level. Azalea also gets along beautifully with her foster sister, who is an older and more stately female. Azalea is happy to share her dog toys and beds with her peers. She is equally skilled socially with the her foster humans and their array of visitors of all ages. She loves spending time with people and gives great joyful “good morning” greetings! She gets anxious when left alone, so we're looking for a home with another dog to keep her company when her humans go out. Azalea has had her right rear lower leg amputated due to an injury prior to her coming to Peppertree, but this does not deter her from enjoying life. Stairs and running around the yard are not an issue, and Azalea excels at providing dogs and humans alike with wonderful companionship! So consider adding a little dazzle to your “garden” this spring and come meet Azalea at our next Peppertree adoption clinic.
