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.

There are no owner dogs available at this time. Please check back again soon.

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

ChesterCHESTER - 1 year old male German Shorthaired Pointer - Chester is a handsome liver purebred pointer in search of an active, loving home. He currently lives with a family who loves him very much but unfortunately realizes they cannot offer him the type of home he needs. Chester is an active boy that loves to play fetch, romp with other dogs, and snuggle with his family. But Chester also loves to learn and thrives when his mind is working - he is a working breed after all! Just don't ask him to hunt, he does not do much pointing for a pointer. Chester would love a home that can keep his body and brain occupied - giving him time to run (maybe jog?), play with other dogs, and that will continue with his education. Maybe even try agility or fly-ball! He is a regular at Shawna's Dogs and even though he is just a year old he has already attended Basic Obedience, Loose Leash Walking and Self Control/Focus Classes and excelled. He is a bit of a teacher's pet and known to suck up to the person with food. Chester knows commands such as sit, down, watch me, leave it, drop it, and is working on come when called. He also attends daycare at Shawna’s Dogs and has MANY dog friends whom he plays very well with. Chester has lived with children but would likely to best in a quiet home. He has never lived with cats so we are not sure how he will do. Chester is a loyal and devoted dog who becomes very bonded to his family, but he sometimes can be nervous when meeting new people or having strangers unexpectedly walk into his unfenced yard when he is on his tie-out. His new owners need to be willing to provide him with positive training so that he may overcome his nervousness and gain more confidence in situations like this. If you are interested in Chester and would like more information on him, please contact Shawna at 518-937-2544.

ClaraCLARA - Labrador Retriever/Vizsla mix, female, adult. Meet our beautiful Clara! If you are looking for a running partner or just a best friend, look no further! Clara is what we call a brown wrapper dog - the outside package is plain but the inside is breathtaking! Clara came to us pregnant and skin and bones after being rescued from a high kill shelter. This beautiful girl is an absolute doll. She has allowed us to do everything with her. Clearly Clara did not have a good start in life as is evident by the callouses on her bottom, not to mention the premature graying. She loves to play but also loves to be with her humans. Playful with other dogs, she does not push anyone, she is even good with cats. Clara is very patient and is absolutely wonderful with children. Typical for her breed, Clara will go over a 3 foot fence so a 5 or 6 foot fence is required for Clara. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Clara, please complete an application at our website, Please note our adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions.

She likes to run after a tennis ball but is not interested in bringing the ball back. She is good on a leash. She is spayed and current on her vaccinations. Please contact Diane if interested in Roz at

TylerTYLER - (~DOB 1/10/15) Tyler is a southern pup and just arrived in New York State on (4/11) and is settling into his foster home. He loves playing with the other puppies in the home.

SeamusSEAMUS - Seamus is a Redbone Coonhound mix (mom was a Redbone)--born 1/10/14. He is neutered, 65 lbs. Like many Coonhounds, he is full of energy, very vocal, and loves to run and follow his nose (fenced-in yard is a must), but also enjoys snuggling. Seamus did well in basic obedience school and is up to date with vaccinations. He would do best in a home with adults or older children (he loves his 11 year old human buddy), a fenced yard, and as the only pet. Please call Bryan at 518-495-4482 if you are interested in Seamus.
