Privately-Owned Dogs Evaluated by Peppertree

The dogs are still living with their owners but need to find a new home. Each of these dogs has been evaluated by Peppertree and the descriptions are accurate based on our assessment. (We must note, however, that we do not have the detailed knowledge that we gain about dogs that are actually in the program and in our own foster homes.)

As space and time permit, we may be taking some, perhaps all, of these dogs into our program based on availability of appropriate foster homes. Our priority, however, must always be the equally-qualified dogs who are in shelters and have no more time left. In the meantime, you are encouraged to consider these dogs and to arrange a meeting if you feel they may be suitable for your home. The owner's contact information is listed below the description. (Where Peppertree has agreed to do the screening, that will be indicated.)

If you think that you might be interested in fostering one of these dogs for Peppertree, please email Whenever we are informed by an owner that a dog in this category is available to come to a clinic, a description of the dog will be included in the clinic announcement sent to all active applicants.

Neighbor's Corner dogs will be listed for 3 months. If the listing has expired and the dog is still available, it is the responsibility of the listing party to send in an updated description and information.

Please note: The dogs listed below are not yet in the Peppertree program. For information on any of the dogs listed below, please refer to the contact information that is listed in each dog's description.

BusterBUSTER - 6 year old male Hound mix about 90 lbs - Buster was born on Valentine's Day and maybe that explains why people fall so easily in love with him - although his dashing good looks do not hurt either! Buster is a happy boy who is good with other dogs and has frequented the dog park most of his life. He has been around a visiting 5 year old and did excellent with them, due to his size he may do best with sturdy kids! Buster would certainly love some older kids to cuddle with though, he likes laps - Buster is a BIG cuddler! Buster also likes to be outside smelling the smells and following his nose, so a fenced yard is a must for him, he has no concept of traffic! Buster has never lived with cats and due to his love of chasing small furry things outside we are not sure cats would appreciate sharing their home with him. He would not mean any harm but let us be honest here, when you are a hound few things are as fun as chasing things that run! Unfortunately Buster's family has had to downsize and apartment living is just not for Buster, Buster needs some space to stretch out and a yard to enjoy. Buster is not a Peppertree dog yet, but his family is asking that you submit an application through Peppertree Rescue to be passed along to them so they can help him find a great home.

OnyxONYX - 6 year old male Lab mix - Onyx LOVES people and has been around kids of all ages. He is full of excitement when he meets people, he is always eager to find new people to pet him. He is house trained and has good house manners. Onyx is used to having a yard and would love a nice fenced place to play, he does enjoy walks but he has not been on many and is working on his leash manners. Onyx lives with a cat and has learned to be very patient with them, so he would likely do well with a dog savvy cat. And he has also lived with small children and does very well with them. Onyx has not been around many other dogs and seems to be overwhelmed by making new friends so he would likely do best as an only dog, although with a slow introduction he might be ready for a canine friend. To meet Onyx please submit an adoption application through Peppertree Rescue and we will pass it along to his family.

SadieSADIE - A very petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Sadie is absolutely adorable. Shes like a pint-sized BC with tons of energy now that she has a fenced yard for racing around. We barely got any pictures where she wasnt off the ground in full flight! And, what a happy girl she was as she flew across the field. She loves squeaky toys and loves to investigate anything, quite curious. Sadie is also such an affectionate, cuddly girl, loving to be right in your lap, sweet as can be. She is also a big time thinker, digesting everything around before she decides what she wants to do. Sadie will need a guardian who wants to help her blossom, discovering activities that she likes to do. She is a strong female so mixes well with submissive male dogs. She is 25 pounds and is not good with cats. Sadie was adopted four months ago from another rescue into a NYC home but her previous guardian felt it was really unfair to keep her leashed and alone all day while she worked - we agree - this little girl is going to love moving freely and choosing what she wants to do! For more information about Sadie, contact .
