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.

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.

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.

ApolloAPOLLO - Apollo was raised to be confident, classic Golden who loves all living creatures – adults, children, and other dogs. Apollo walks nicely on a leash, enjoys going for car ride, and he just loves to retrieve balls. He is neutered, heartworm negative, and is up to date on his vaccinations. He has a history of idiopathic epilepsy that is controlled with phenobarbital, an inexpensive medicine, that he receives each morning and evening. His seizures are typically limited to once or twice a month and are of short duration. If you would like to learn more about 2 1/2 year old Apollo, please visit his personal page at

AuroraAURORA - Meet Aurora! She was rescued by Rottie Empire Rescue on December 2, 2013 after having been at the shelter for over 6 months. Since then she has been fostered by a wonderful woman that helps many dogs, although it is not the ideal situation for her. Aurora needs a family of her own that can give her undivided love and attention, and has only received 1 application for adoption in the past year. Aurora has gone through the training to become an official Therapy Dog and recently went on her first Therapy visit. She is a very goofy, silly, happy girl. Aurora is very good on leash and appropriate with dogs in public. She does not do well with cats, but may be able to live with an easy going male dog. If interested in adopting Aurora, please apply at

BrunoBRUNO - Rottweiler, male, 5-6 years, 105 lbs. Bruno is a very nice Rottie boy who is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. He is well trained and knows sit, paw, down, speak, heel and is crate trained and house broken. He has been great with people and good with cats and dogs which he has met. His favorite pastimes are walks, playing with his ball, and belly rubs. Anyone interested can contact Latham Animal Hospital at 518 894 6207 or Meredith at 518 785 1481.

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.

KarmaKARMA - Karma is a 7 year old Husky mix. She's a sweet girl who first came to Saratoga County Animal Shelter on 10/29/14 because the landlord would not allow the breed. Her original owner reported that Karma was good with cats but did not know if she got along with dogs. Her energy level is mid-range. Karma can be very playful but enjoys lounging too. Karma has a health condition that causes one of her legs to appear larger than the others. This doesn't seem to cause her any discomfort or pain. She is perfectly mobile. Based on her previous owners report, she has had this condition all of her life. It is a benign tumor called infiltrative lipoma, that will not spread to other parts of the body though it may continue to "infiltrate" the muscles, tendons, and bones of that leg. These tumors are not good candidates for surgery and the growth rate is unpredictable. Karma's quality of life is excellent! With slow progression, she could have years remaining though a shorter life is a possibility. We are looking for family willing to give her the best life possible for however long she can continue to enjoy it. Karma is eligible for the Senior to Senior program - a Saratoga County resident, aged 60 or older would only pay the $6 license fee to take her home! Call 518-885-4113 or email for more info on Karma.

RascalRASCAL - is an 8yr old Golden Retriever mix. He is neutered and up to date on shots. He is mellow and sweet but still wants to go for walks and play! He rides great in the car too. He was brought to Regional Animal Shelter in Gloversville, NY with a severe allergy which had been untreated for a long time. His fur was missing and he was feeling rather yucky. They have nursed him back to health and now he is a beautiful, happy, tail wagging boy! He is good with cats but is stressed at the shelter and prefers to avoid other dogs - he may be able to live with the right canine companion though. But when you have Rascal in your life, you really won't need another dog - he is all you could need in a dog! Don't let his age fool you, this boy has a lot of life to live and even more love to give. To anyone who might be able to provide the loving home he truly deserves, please contact Renee at the shelter: 518-725-5956. Thank you!!

RomeoROMEO - 2-3 neutered male Rottweiler mix. Romeo is at a local shelter, where he has been since July 2014 waiting for his forever home! Romeo is very in tune with the shelter staff and would make someone an extraordinary pet. He has amazing focus and has already learned sit, down, and wait and is working on heeling off leash in the play area. Romeo would be too much with cats but does enjoy other dogs' company. He would probably do best with a female canine friend. He has been sitting quietly in his kennel and has had no interest. Won't you consider this sweet boy today? Please contact the Delaware Valley Humane Society at for more information.

ScrappySCRAPPY - Lab mix - This adorable fellow is just 6 months old (born approx. 8/22/14). He is a happy go lucky pup living in a foster home with multiple dogs and a young boy that he adores. Scrappy is housebroken and crate trained. Good in the car and loves everyone he meets. Please contact his foster mom for more information at:

ZenaZENA - 8 to 10 year old female pit bull. Zena has won over the hearts of the shelter staff, where she has patiently been waiting for her forever home. Zena is a perfect lady - she loves hugs and is happy to go for nice long walks but otherwise would prefer cuddling up on a nice warm bed. She is housebroken and loves all people. Zena is good with cats, calm dogs and most likely would be great with older kids to have a family of her own! Zena is constantly getting looked over for "flashier" and younger dogs. She wants you to know she has plenty of pep left in her step! If interested, please contact the Delaware Valley Humane Society at

HalleHALLE - 4 year old female Shepherd mix. Halle is a great family dog. She loves nothing more than to be with her people. She will greet you with wags and doggy kisses, and if you want to play fetch she's your girl. Halle is exceptional with children. She is very tolerant of little ones who haven't quite learned to be gentle, and revels in running and jumping with older ones in the yard. Halle also does very well with small dogs and can be very gentle when she plays, however, she can sometimes be a bit scared of dogs her own size and needs to be properly introduced before she's ready to play. Halle is spayed, up to date, and has impeccable house manners. She doesn't even counter surf! If you are interested in this sweet dog, please email Christine at
