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.

BenBEN - Ben is a super sweet orange male tiger cat that was taken in as a stray about a month ago. He quickly became best friends with the resident dog Rosey and the 20 year old cat Pippi, but he and Penelope, the other resident cat, do not get along. To be fair to Penelope he needs to find another home, preferably with another dog that he can love. He is approximately two years old and loves to be pet and snuggle with you in bed. He can be a bit vocal at times and sometimes needs to be reminded that he is not to be allowed on the counter top. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations and flea preventative. Please contact Cathy at 256-4149 for more information on Ben.

CassiaCASSIA - Cassia is a 4.5 year old 60lb mixed breed female. She is coming from a very loved home who unfortunately, due to dramatic changes in their lives, no longer have the time or space she deserves. Cassia is a runner, she loves to play with other dogs (good with cats too) and play outside. She is very determined and will run through an electric fence so she will need to be well contained. She is a nervous dog. Once she gets use to you, she will be your big baby but new people and places take her a while to get use to. I do not recommend her around small children because of this. The quick movements and noises scare her. While she is cautious, she doesn't appear that way. She will alert you with any noise or strange movement and her bark sounds like she means business. Cassia is crate trained and can easily go all day with out being let out. Once again, she's has been in a very loving environment, but deserves more than they can offer her right now. Call 518-307-8700 to meet Cassia.

CujoCUJO - Miniature Pinscher, male, 12 years. Cujo is dignified, dashing, and while his name may have you thinking otherwise, the only dangerous thing about him is how dangerously adorable he is. This senior gent loves to snuggle, enjoys a nice walk, and does well with other dogs of all sizes, his foster home currently has a chihuahua and a large hound mix. The joy of adopting an adult dog is they often come already trained. Cujo is no exception, he has excellent house manners and has basic obedience down. If you are interested in Cujo please fill out an application through Peppertree Rescue and we will forward it along to his family.

SymanSYMAN - 8 year old male beagle. Calling all Beagle lovers! Boy, do we have a beagle for you - meet Syman! Syman embodies the charm and enthusiasm of the breed, and he also really likes to give hugs and kisses. Syman has never met someone he doesn't like, dogs or people, and he is the unofficial greeter at a local storage unit where he spends a lot of time. Syman has good house manners and is a very easy going boy, however, he has never really been on a leash and definitely needs some work on leash manners. He does enjoy off-leash walks, and sniffing around a yard, or just being with his person. He's a true country beagle and a roly poly ball of love! If you are interested in meeting Syman please fill out an application through Peppertree and we will forward it along to his family.

Guest Listings

A helping hand to other rescues.

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.

BenjaminBENJAMIN - Benjaman is approx 8, and believed to be an Egyptian Malinois. He is very smart, obedient, likes kids, not good with cats. He does get along with other dogs but to be on the safe side he would probably do better as an only dog. He can be a protector, so he should go with an advanced human with more of a strong personality. Ben loves to run and would be great for hiking and other activities outdoors. Ben is currently in boarding where his caregiver says he is a sweetheart who deserves to live in a house and sleep on a couch or someones bed. For more information about Benjamin, call Kat at 892-8226.

Cagney and laceyCAGNEY AND LACEY - Cagney and Lacey are 10-year old tabby sisters who sadly need to be re-homed due to their owner's allergies. Separate homes were found for them but unfortunately both fell through. They are healthy cats and up-to-date on their immunizations. For more information about them, please contact Karen at

ChastityCHASTITY - LIGRR rarely takes dogs that are not Golden Retrievers, but we could simply not leave this dog in the shelter in NYC. She is 3 years old, we have done medical testing but have been unable to find any cause for her condition. If you would like to help this really sweet dog please let us know. She has gained weight and it appears that she was severely neglected. All blood work was normal. Chastity has gained some weight and looks much better. Contact us LIGRR at 516-578-3803 or email .

HoneyHONEY - is 7 years old and very petite. Although she is not a pure bred Golden she came in with another dog and we simply could not leave her alone in the shelter. She is a sweet girl who has lived a difficult life. She would really appreciate a loving home where she can enjoy the better things in life. For more information about Honey, contact LIGRR at 516-578-3803 or email .

ScrappySCRAPPY - All-American mix, male, ~10 months old. Scrappy is a nice, active boy who gets along with other dogs. He is neutered and vetted. He needs some work on manners, but he is a smart boy and once he gets into a home and has a decent outlet for his energy, we expect he will settle down and be a great companion. A home with a canine companion who enjoys his rough-and-tumble style of playing would be perfect for him. This is a young dog with a lot of potential in the right home! We do not know about cats. For more information about Scrappy, email .

SugarSUGAR - Sugar (DOB 06/14) Mastiff mix with a gorgeous brindle coat. If you are looking for some extra sweetness in your life, Sugar may be your girl. She is sweet, loving and a bit of a character. When she is giving out the kisses all over your face, she occasionally likes to nibble on your ears. She knows sit, down, focus, touch, stay, come and basic command of leave it. She would be happy being an only dog or having a calm male doggie friend in her new home. She is dog friendly, but it doesn’t mean she wants to be friends with every dog. Sugar is not a high energy dog, but she does require some exercise and then she will be happy to be a couch potato. Sugar would also be good with somebody that is active because a five mile walk doesn't even phase her. She rides great in the car and loves to stop for a vanilla ice cream cone or scoop of vanilla in a dish. Watch out if you have shoes with laces because when Sugar gets excited she likes to untie them and she is quick with her skill. Chew toys are a must for her inside the home, and outside her favorite toys are sticks, rope and tennis balls. She likes to play tug a war. She enjoys playing in the water. Sugar is not happy if she doesn't have a blanket or some type of bedding at night time to sleep on. She is crate trained and has a solid athletic body - her weight is between 70 and 75 pounds. Sugar also likes children, but due to her size and her not having a real sense of her size the children would have to be older in age. Sugar's leash skills are not bad, just need some fine tuning. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. If interested in Sugar contacted Diane at
