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.

BismarkBISMARK - 7 year old male Rottie mix - This gentle giant is over 100 pounds, but sometimes great things come in great big packages. Bismark is a wonderful family dog that started his life in Alaska and made the trek across the country with his family. He loves the children in his home and does well with small children but is finding himself home alone for long periods of the day and his family feels he deserves a home where he can get all the attention he deserves. He does very well with cats and has lived with dogs although he can bark at bit when meeting new dogs and needs a slow introduction. Bismark somewhat resembles the Cowardly Lion in that he does not realize his inner strength, so he is sometimes scared when new people come over and barks at them. But if you hand him a treat and squat down low and play your cards right he will soon be coming up to you giving you kisses. Once you are friends you are friends forever and he will soon be trying to work his way into your lap so he can get lots of pets and snuggling. On top of being a gentle giant, he is also a giant lap dog. His one bad habit - Bismark is a fan of exploring garbage cans (and diaper genies) so he is best left crated or in a secure room when you are not at home. Bismark loves the snow and being outside, and he really enjoys a good walk followed by a nap. Bismark would be happiest in a home with kids and a family that has time to give him lots of attention. If you are interested in meeting Bismark or learning more about him, please contact his family at 907-947-6938 or e-mail .

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.

DiamondDIAMOND - (~2 to 3 years old) Diamond is a small dog and her weight is about 15 pounds. She is so stinking cute inside and out. She is a happy, wiggly girl and sweet as can be. She is fine being alone, but loves being with people. If sitting on the couch her place is on your lap. She is the definition of lap dog. Diamond is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. We think she smiles too. She is dog friendly. I donít think she has ever met a cat before because she is unsure and acts afraid of cats. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. If interested in Diamond contact Diane at The first video is her first day in foster and the second one is a few days later.

HalHAL - (~ DOB 11/27/14 ) Hal is all about being happy and having a good time. He has a very easy going personality. He enjoys snuggling on the couch and giving kisses. He enjoys being out with other dogs that want to play and hang outside. He is crate trained. Hal is up to date on all vaccinations and neutered. If interested in Hal contact Diane at

LandonLANDON - (~ 04/2014) He is a larger dog and his weight is around 65 pounds. His coat is gorgeous and his body is solid. There is one big question mark on exactly what his mix is, but whatever the mix is it has created one awesome dog. He is very dog friendly, but absolutely loves people and is very affectionate (hugging, kissing, and snuggling.) He will roll on his side or back for a chest and belly rub in the hopes that he will receive one. He is just a large teddy bear. He currently knows sit, lay down, stay, come, touch, focus and basic command of leave it. He currently is learning his basic house manners. He is update on his vaccinations. If interested in Landon contact Diane at

LunaLUNA - Shepherd mix, female, 9 months, 25 lbs. I am still a puppy and have lots of puppy energy. I am playful but a bit shy when I first meet you. Iím doing ok on my leash training but would benefit from an obedience training class. I enjoy the company of other dogs, but I can play a little rough so medium and/or large playmates are best. I am doing very well with my house breaking; I go outside with the other dogs in my foster home. I love playing in the big yard. I require a fenced yard. Running in the yard and de-stuffing toys are my favorite things in the world. I would love to find my furever family. I need a fenced yard and cannot live with cats. Contact Marybeth at if interested.

OliviaOLIVIA - Olivia is a sweet, about 11 month old female rottie that comes to us from a shelter in GA. She is in foster with a female lab that she loves to play with. Olivia knows sit and down. If interested in Olivia please submit an application on our site,

PaddyPADDY - 2 year old female terrier mix - Paddy is an adorable and tiny little girl of only about 25#. She is good with both cats and dogs and loves absolutely everyone! She is doing well with her housebreaking as well. If you are looking for an easy to handle smaller dog, then this is the gal for you! If you want to meet Paddy then please fill out an application with Out of the Pits at - she is a lovely dog and we are happy to help her find the perfect home.

Stevie wonderSTEVIE WONDER - 7 year old male pit bull mix - There are many things we can tell you about Stevie Wonder, but the first and likely the most obvious is that he is blind. And without a doubt this could be a challenge for many dogs. But Stevie gets along incredibly well. Once he learns his surroundings he settles right in. So if you think of discounting him because of his lack of sight please keep an open mind. When it comes to personality, to meet Stevie is to absolutely LOVE him. He is joyful and sweet natured and it is really easy to connect with him. He is good with other friendly dogs, totally housebroken and generally an easy keeper. He is interested in cats but he can certainly be kept away from them with a few well placed baby gates. He has taken basic obedience classes and is a well mannered fellow. If you are interested in meeting Stevie Wonder then please fill out an application with Out of the Pits at - he is a lovely dog that has been in and out of rescue a few times, and we are eager to see him find his forever home

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 doesnít 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

TolkuTOLKU - Shepherd mix, male, 9 months, 35 lbs. Tolku is wonderful with other dogs. Heíll chase the cats on occasion, but for the most part, ignores them. Heís a shy dog, but once he gets used to you heís a snuggle bug. Prepare to have him in your lab as you lounge on the couch and by your side as you move through your house. Heís housebroken for the most part, with a few accidents here and there. He loves walks, running around in a fenced yard and car rides. He knows how to sit on command, but will run off if he is startled. Taking it slow with him is a must. Heís unsure of children, but is not aggressive at all. Heís never growled or snapped at anyone or anything. Tolku, with his adorable ears, would be a wonderful addition to a home that already has a dog and willing to give him some extra TLC. He needs a 6 ft fenced yard. Contact Marybeth at if interested.
