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.

BlakeBLAKE - (~ DOB 2/16/14) Blake is an extremely good natured puppy. He enjoys meeting new people and other dogs. He is in a foster home with multiple dogs and loves playing with them. He is crate trained. His energy level is low to moderate. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. Please contact Diane if interested in Blake at

GeorgiaGEORGIA - 11 month old French Bulldog/Beagle mix. Georgia loves you and she hasn't even met you yet! Mostly because Georgia loves everyone and everything - life is so exciting to her! She is Miss Enthusiasm! (Please forgive the excessive exclamation points, they just suit her bouncy personality). Georgia is a happy girl who has a lot of love to give, although she is in need of a bit of training. She is just so excited about things she cannot help herself and sometimes forgets her manners and will jump and lick you! Or jump on another dog, or just jump! Georgia is very much a puppy in spirit. She is amazing with people and just loves to love. She will snuggle for hours and just wants to soak up the attention. Georgia is good with children as well, although she can sometimes overwhelm them if they are not used to an enthusiastic dog. She is good with other dogs most of the time, but is a bossy girl who likes to be in charge, and does not always take no for an answer - she has the Frenchie stubbornness! Georgia is crate trained and is still perfecting her house training - like a lot of Frenchies, and Frenchie mixes, they take a lot of consistency to perfect that, and in a busy household she is just not getting the schedule she needs to make it all click. Unfortunately, as much as they love her Georgia's family cannot offer her the time and exercise she needs, and want to see her in a home where she can get the attention she deserves. They love her and know she is going to flourish in the right home. If you are interested in adopting Georgia please fill out an application through Peppertree Rescue.

Huckleberry blueHUCKLEBERRY BLUE - Treeing Walker Coonhound, male, 4 years old, 40 lbs. Huckleberry Blue, aka Huck, loves people, loves other dogs, and just loves being a good dog! Until recently we believe Huck was kept outside and possibly used for hunting, but he has embraced indoor life and is definitely excited to be a family pet. He is quickly picking up house manners and loves his crate. Huck would be a great dog for a family. He is a gentle dog that loves attention, loves to play and loves going on walks, although he can pull a bit on the leash, but he's working on it. He is eager to please as well, and is a champion snuggler. Huck will also make sure your floors are clean and treats will never get "lost" in your house - he is an expert treat finder. Like most hounds Huck will follow his nose and therefore he needs a very secure fence (he climbs!) and cannot be off-leash. Huck would love to have a canine companion, but unfortunately he cannot live with cats, he is very cat keen, which is why he needs a new home. If you are interested in Huckleberry Blue please fill out an application and we will forward it to his family.

LuckyLUCKY - (~ DOB 01/13) Lucky is a sweet girl that loves hanging on the couch and snuggling, along with giving lots of kisses. She loves children. She also enjoys playing with other dogs. She likes tennis and racket balls, Nylon chew bone and pull and tug toys. Her energy level is low to moderate. Lucky is crate trained if needed. She rides great in the car and likes going places. She needs a home without cats. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Lucky was a rescue from a shelter in N.C. She has been in a foster home and is now ready to find her forever home. Please contact Diane if interested in Lucky at

MaxMAX - 4 year old male - Yorkshire Terrier/Pomeranian - Max is as cute as a button and sweet as can be. He is an affectionate guy that loves to snuggle and be with his person, and likes to be carried around as much as he likes going for walks. Max is very connected and knows when you are sad and need some extra love, and is happy to provide it. He is house trained, has good house manners, and does well with other dogs and cats too! Max has never been around children and seems a little unsure of small kids, but would do fine with children 6 years old and up who are respectful of his size. Max is looking for a new home because he does not like to be left alone, and gets anxious. His family works during the day and while they have tried to help Max feel secure, they feel a home with someone who is around more will be better for him - even though they are very sad to say good-bye. If you are interested in Max, please fill out an application with Peppertree Rescue (, and we will forward it along to his family.

NikoNIKO - 3 year old male Beagle/German Shepherd mix, 43 lb. Niko is hoping you will consider letting him enter into your home and your heart. Niko is a smart dog who loves his people, and loves to snuggle, so much so that you might find him nudging your hand to remind you that he is far more fun than the TV. He knows his basic obedience and loves to play games like fetch, although fetch can sometimes become a game of keep away if Niko has his way! He is all about fun and love - his family calls him a love sponge. Unfortunately, Niko had a rough start in life and that has left him with some baggage, he does not like to be crated, and he does not like to be left alone but as long as he is left with a treat and his routine is followed he is okay, he just needs a bit of patience and would prefer someone who is around more often than they are gone. Niko can also sometimes guard the water dish from other animals, likely related to his early days as a stray. He is fine with people but he does not like to share his water with his canine sibling, and will try to drink it all before the other dog, leaving his family to wonder if deep down Niko would be happier as an only dog. Although Niko could live with a dog who is a right fit – someone who will play with him and let him be the boss. Niko has never been around children but his owners feel he would do well with older children who will appreciate his enthusiastic spirit. Niko cannot live with cats, as he will chase them. He has been Heartworm tested (4DX - neg x 4), vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPP, Lyme & Bordetella, has had regular monthly Heartworm and flea preventative. He is very loving, knows basic obedience, and would come with all his “stuff.” Please help us find the best place for Niko, where he can be his happiest, as well as bring his new caretakers as much happiness as they give to him! If you are interested in Niko please fill out an application through Peppertree and we will forward it to his owners.

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 Karen at 518-573-3110 or Shawna at 518-937-2544.

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.
