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
ARCHIMEDES (aka Archie) - Shepherd mix, male, ~8 years old, 70 lbs. ARCHIE's foster family describes him as the kind of neighborhood family dog that anyone over the age of 50 years recalls from their childhood. ARCHIE enjoys the company of other dogs but his true passion is to be a devoted and steadfast companion to his people. He walks beautifully on leash and after a long walk, loves nothing more than laying beside your chair. And donít let the grey muzzle fool you! ARCHIE is a wonderfully calm jogging partner and has been learning better recall by doing some off-leash hiking in a safe area. We've seen him briefly interact with kids and he really seemed to enjoy them. ARCHIE's foster home does not have cats, therefore we are not sure how he feels about them. Click here see more pictures of Archimedes on Petfinder.com. Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the 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.
