Neighbor's Corner

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.

PjPJ - 2 year old female Chihuahua - PJ is a sweet little girl in need of a home, through no fault of her own. She is a friendly girl that likes to be held and cuddled, like many chihuahuas. PJ is crate trained and pee pad trained and has good house manners too, but she also enjoys her daily walks and time in the yard. She is afraid of larger dogs but could possibly live with another small dog, as long as they are a personality fit. PJ would do best in a home without cats, and will not be placed with small children in the home due to her size. If you are interested in meeting her please fill out an application through Peppertree and we will put you in touch with the owner.

Roxy and kodaROXY AND KODA - are two middle aged, female huskies whose owner must sell her home and move into an assisted living facility. These dogs are the love of her life and the family is devastated to have to give them up. Koda and Roxy are sisters, both around eight years old, in good health, spayed, and have all of the necessary vaccinations. Koda (white) is blind and depends on her sister Roxy for assistance, so we need to keep them together. They both have wonderful temperaments. We are looking for someone to provide them with a safe and loving home. Please help us, they deserve all the love in the world and we refuse to bring them to a pound! Please contact Tyler by e-mail at or Valerie by phone, (518) 641-2666, or email,

TazTAZ - 1.5 year old male German Shepherd mix - Taz may be a mix but he has all the best qualities of a German Shepherd, he is a loving, loyal, smart young fellow - and he is in need of a new home. Taz is a real catch for the right family. He loves to play fetch and will play all day if you let him, he loves to go on walks, and he also loves to swim. Taz is great in the car too! He is also a champion snuggler and will try to be a lap dog if you let him. Taz is currently living with another dog and enjoys playing with dogs, and does well with small children too. Taz has never lived with cats. He has excellent house manners and knows his basic obedience - sit, stay, speak, shake, and come are just a few things from his repertoire! Taz does not enjoy being in a crate but he is fine left loose in the house with his dog bed to sleep on. Taz will need a secure yard though as he does not do well with an invisible fence. When you are home he will happily follow you around, and does not want to leave your side. After all, you might get lonely if he isn't there to keep you company! While Taz is being placed by his family, they prefer that an application be submitted through Peppertree Rescue - just please mark Taz as the dog you are interested in.

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.

LarryLARRY - Larry’s German Spitz breeding is impeccably handsome and we wouldn’t be surprised if somebody paid good money for him. His shining little 3 or 4 year-old spirit makes him just as beautiful to the heart as he is to the eye. It’s surprising that he was found on the streets of Schenectady, never claimed from his 5 day hold, and nearly put down. This loving little dog is the type that likes to fully lean in with all 22 pounds, curling in for constant contact with you as you stroke his long, glossy, black fur. His bright brown eyes gaze lovingly into your own and he’s happiest when cuddling or playing. If you bend down to pick him up, he instinctively knows to relax and be lifted without wiggling. For more information about Larry, see his listing at .

PoochPOOCH - Lab mix, female, 4 years old. Pooch is the All-American Family Adventure Dog, perfect for parents, kids, dogs, cats, or all of the above. Her Labrador side is wonderfully loyal, as she lovingly locks eyes on her favorite people. And the road is her best friend, as long as her family is by her side. Pooch loves, loves, loves the car! No longer a puppy, she won’t bounce out of her skin, knock over the kids, or chew up the house. And, at 4 years of age, she’ll offer many wonderful years of adoration to every family member her heart touches. Housebroken and well mannered, Pooch has no need for a crate. Please save this beautiful girl from drowning in her own sadness. Pooch was well cared for, spayed, living with a pack of two other dogs and cats as well as her kids and parents, but they had to give her up due to family circumstances. To learn more about Pooch, visit her page at
