Peppertree Rescue Dogs on Trial Placement - Adoption Pending
The following dogs are on trial placement in a new home and are not currently available for adoption. All Peppertree adoptions begin with a minimum two-week trial period. The dogs below have been placed in adoptive homes but the adoption is not yet final.
CHAMP - Lab mix, male, 9 years, 65 lbs. Champ and his loveable personality came from a NYC shelter. Heís still settling into his new foster home, but they report that Champ is a very happy and affectionate guy who's always ready to give kisses. Donít let his age fool you, he has lots of energy and loves to play! Champ loves everyone Ö people, dogs, and cats. He walks pretty well on a leash and rides very well in the car. Because of his enthusiasm (and his typical lab tail!), he would do best in a home without young children.
DUKE - Redbone/bloodhound mix, male, 3 months, 30 lbs. Duke is a true southern gentleman that just arrived from Tennessee. He loves kids, other dogs, and attention. He is a great snuggler and is quite warm for those fall nights! Duke is working on house training in his foster home. He is still young so he has puppy behaviors like chewing on things, and will need plenty of appropriate chew toys. He walks well on leash and is very food motivated. Duke will grow to be a large dog, perhaps 100 lbs, and will need obedience training and plenty of exercise to keep him and his family happy. He is not good with cats.
ENRIQUE - Retriever, male, 2 year, 62 lbs. Just arrived and being evaluated in a foster home.
LAB MIX PUPPIES - 2 males, 1 female puppy available around Oct. 10 at 8 weeks old. Please submit application mentioning "puppies" if interested in being considered.
MISS MOLLY - Lab/Shepherd/Husky mix, female, 7 years, 65 lbs. Miss Molly is a great girl who is celebrating her 7th Birthday on September 23rd - the best present she could ask for is a family, a yard and a ball to chase. That is all she needs to be happy - just don't expect her to bring back the ball! Miss Molly has excellent house manners and is a bit shy when you first meet her, and cautious around strangers, but when she is around her people she just lights up. Miss Molly spent most of her life as an only dog in an adult home and would probably be happiest in a similar setting. She is fine around kids but they are new to her and sometimes confuse her. Miss Molly has a live and let live attitude with other dogs and tends to ignore them, especially when her people are around to pay attention to. Miss Molly seems to do well with other mellow dogs, but would prefer not to live with a younger dog eager to play - a quiet life is more appealing to this lovely lady. Miss Molly lived with cats when she was younger, but has not been around them in a while. She loves being outside and loves her daily walks, although she is still learning that she will go further if she doesn't pull! Adopting Miss Molly will guarantee you a loving and loyal dog.
NADINE - Black Lab mix, female, 4 years. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
PAULY - Collie/Pointer mix, male, 2 years old, 55 lbs. Look at that smile - this could be the face that greets you every day! Pauly was brought to a shelter as a stray but was obviously someone's pet. He is a sweet, loving, companion dog who wants to be with his people all of the time. Pauly has excellent house manners. He walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. Pauly knows basic commands and learns quickly. He is playful with other dogs who like to play, and leaves them alone if they don't. He is not good with cats. Pauly has good potential to be an off-leash dog, hiking companion, etc.
SOCHI - Australian Shepherd mix, female, 9 months, 42 lbs. Sochi's heritage is a bit of a mystery, we know her mom was a herding dog on a farm, maybe an Aussie, maybe a Border Collie, maybe a little of both, and her dad was just passing through, but, we suspect he may have been a beagle, based on her size and coat. Sochi's heritage is that of an old-fashioned farm dog - and like the farm dogs she is devoted, smart and loves to be outside with her people, or on the couch with her people - she just loves people! Sochi has excellent house manners, does not need a crate, and is very good with children. She has never lived with another dog but loves to play and is learning how much fun it can be! Sochi has a soft personality and presents as a serious little pup but once she relaxes she shows her silly side - she loves to play tug and to fetch tennis balls and just run around a be a puppy - she is an active girl but does know how to settle in the house, as long as she gets her walks in. Sochi is the type of pup that would love to join her family on weekend hikes, or for play time in the yard - she just loves being with her people!
