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
SALLIE - Collie/terrier? mix, female, 2 years, ~40 lbs. If you are looking for a devoted partner as well as a loving pet, then Sallie is your girl. A sensitive soul, Sallie is a lovely young lady with looks as well as brains, and would love a home that keeps both her brain and body busy. She came to us from a NYC area shelter where her cautious nature was leaving her a very stressed girl, but since arriving at Peppertree she is able to relax and show us her playful, smart and sometimes silly spirit! Sallie loves to play with her foster brother Loki and will happily live with the right canine companion, but we will have to do a meet and greet with any potential canine companion as she likes to go slow and be sure of her friends. Sallie is not the type of dog for dog parks or busy social scenes, she is the type of dog that prefers long walks and playing in her own yard. She'd make the perfect hiking companion and is very food motivated and eager to learn, and would likely excel at advanced training. Sallie is crate trained and has excellent house manners, cats are unknown. While we are still getting to know her at this time we do not think she'd enjoy a busy household and should not be placed with small children. If you are looking for a loving girl who will devote herself to you and is eager to please, then Sallie is your girl.
