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.
AYDAH - Spitz mix, female, 2 years old. Aydah is very smart and easy to train, and is eager to learn. She's an athletic girl with a medium energy level. She loves to run, and would make an excellent jogging or running partner. Afterward, she can lie on her bed calmly for hours. Aydah represents the independent spirit of the Spitz and is not much of a cuddler, more of a doer. She loves to play ball and could make a great frisbee or agility dog. She's crate trained and housebroken, and her foster mom says she's one of the smartest dogs she has ever worked with and would do really well with someone who would like to do a high level of training. Aydah will require a confident owner and a home that understands her needs and can provide structure and plenty of exercise and activities. She should not be placed in a home with children, as their busy activities and friends in and out are overwhelming to her. Aydah does well with other dogs with a proper introduction, especially males. She cannot live with cats. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
AZALEA - Hound/retriever mix, female, 2-3 years, 50 lbs. Azalea is originally from South Carolina, and her name fits her to perfection, as “flowering ornamental” might be a great way to describe this lovely soul. Of course, our Azalea proudly blooms year round! She is a very gentle, sweet girl who loves receiving and giving affection. Azalea is crate trained and housebroken. She enjoys the company of her foster brother, who is a similar age but a far higher energy level. Azalea also gets along beautifully with her foster sister, who is an older and more stately female. Azalea is happy to share her dog toys and beds with her peers. She is equally skilled socially with the her foster humans and their array of visitors of all ages. She loves spending time with people and gives great joyful “good morning” greetings! Azalea has had her right rear lower leg amputated due to an injury prior to her coming to Peppertree, but this does not deter her from enjoying life. Stairs and running around the yard are not an issue, and Azalea excels at providing dogs and humans alike with wonderful companionship! So consider adding a little dazzle to your “garden” this spring and come meet Azalea at our next Peppertree adoption clinic.
GUS - Hound mix, male, 3 years old, 78 lbs. Gus is a perfect size dog with a big personality, who just wants a family to love. He loves toys and acts like a puppy sometimes. He is house trained and settles down nicely on his bed. Everyone is his friend and gets kisses. He is a little timid about new things but warms up quickly with your support. He is afraid to get in the car, but once in, he rides nicely. Gus likes to play with other dogs and kids. Cats are unknown but he has ignored them on walks. He loves attention and especially sharing a snack.
JUSTICE - Beagle mix, male, 8 years, 52 lbs. Justice is a 110% pure hound mix (we think!) He came to Peppertree from New York City, after being surrendered to the the NYC shelter system. Justice had been living with his owner and a beagle sibling for four years, but unfortunately, this was in violation of the apartment lease, and he suddenly found himself without a family. Now that he is experiencing the good life of a Peppertree foster dog, Justice is happily living with an easy going male dog who he very much enjoys napping and playing with. Justice is crate trained, housebroken, rides well in the car, loves meeting new people on neighborhood outings, but most of all loves snuggling with his household humans and their guests. He does great with folks of all ages. Cats are an unknown at this time, but when enjoying time outside on the deck, Justice allows his more energetic foster brother to assume all official squirrel control enforcement duties. Please come visit Justice at an upcoming Peppertree adoption clinic. He would be very happy to make your acquaintance!
LEIGH - Hound mix, female, 3 Years old, 50 lbs.
NIKITA - Gordon Setter mix, female, 4 years old, 78 lbs. Nikita (aka Betty) is a loving companion who really aims to please. She knows basic commands like sit, stay, paw, down and come. She is perfectly house trained and will let you know when she has to go out. Nikita really loves to go out in the backyard and sniff everything or play fetch. She is a very easy going girl and a playful companion who is looking for a family to call her own. Nikita has been good with some cats and has wanted to chase others, so we will judge on a case by case basis. She is heartworm positive and will be treated at Peppertree's expense.
