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.
CHAUNCEY - Shih Tzu mix, male, 4 years, 17 lbs. CHAUNCEY is an adorable dog who is doing well in his foster home. He loves his squeaky toys and loves to play fetch. He is working on housebreaking and crate-training, and is great on the leash. CHAUNCEY plays nicely with his foster mom and doesn't mind when she takes a toy away from him. He seems to be good with most dogs, provided they have a proper introduction. Click here see more pictures of Chauncey on Petfinder.com.
COLBEY - Tree Walking Coonhound/Lab mix, male, 1 1/2 years, 55 lbs. Colbey is a great family dog. He loves everyone and other dogs. He hasn't been cat tested but met some at the vet's and had only minimal interest. Colby is house trained and knows basic commands. He can play all day but settles down nicely for a snuggle after play time.
ELENA - Terrier/Rottie Mix, female, 11 weeks old. Elena's picture and personality speak for themselves! She is an adorable young "Sato" (slang for street-dog) brought here from Puerto Rico. Spanish speaking only, she is the perfect mix of cuddler and playful pup. She is a work in progress on house-training and basic commands. She loves all other dogs and humans!
LIZA - Whippet/Lab mix, female, 4-5 months. Liza was transferred to Peppertree by Sochi Dogs (sochidogs.org), a rescue that saves street dogs in Sochi, Russia. Liza is described by her foster family as a sweet girl, who is shy at first but quickly warms up. She is bouncy in the house, enjoying playtime with her canine foster sister, and seems to have an affinity for human children as well! She is not a barker although be prepared for puppy kisses! Liza has good household manners, is crate trained and will use puppy pads if needed. She does have some fear of going outside and being on a leash, and could use some training in that area. She has been around cats and has done great.
MAPLE - Black Mouth Cur Mix, female, 4 years, 45 lbs. MAPLE was a stray from NYC and was underweight until Peppertree took her in. She has had some health issues, but with a treatment plan and some TLC she's now feeling great! She has a very sweet disposition and her foster mom says she is a "big love". MAPLE enjoys playing with her canine foster sister and is great with cats. She loves the resident 15-year-old kitty even though she's a little too old to play with! MAPLE is housebroken, has a moderate energy level, and is good when left alone. Most of all, she wants to find a family to call her own and to shower with love and kisses!

MARTY - Italian greyhound mix, male, 3 years old, 17 pounds. Marty is a small white dog with pale blond markings. He was turned into a New York City shelter because the owner had too many dogs. He is underweight so needs to put on a few pounds. Marty is shy at first, but warms up quickly and is very affectionate. He loves to cuddle and will give kisses and his paw to get your attention. He likes to put his head in your lap so that he can roll over and have belly rubs. His prior owner said that he is wonderful with kids. Marty seems good so far with other dogs in the foster home. He walks well on a leash and we are working on crate training. How he is with cats is unknown.
ROXANNE - Lab/Pit bull mix, female, 12 years, 65 lbs. Roxanne epitomizes the temperament Peppertree looks for in a dog: calm, friendly, and happy in a mellow way. She was surrendered to a NYC shelter due to her life-long owner not able to properly care for her any more. She acts and looks a good many years younger than 12 and keeps up with the energetic dog in her foster home. Roxanne has wonderful house manners and is a loving companion to the children there. Cats are unknown but she is so gentle it's hard to imagine she wouldn't be OK with them.
YUKI - Terrier/Chihuahua mix, male, 1 year. Yuki is doing very well in his foster home. He is definitely too thin but has a healthy appetite and we hope he will be at a more ideal weight, around 20 lbs, soon. He is playful with the male dog in his foster home and is fine with the senior female pit bull as well. He is housebroken, loves people, and people of all ages seem to love him! Yuki has a lot of charm and likes to be held or be in your lap. His big, beautiful eyes seem to jump out of his tiny head and reflect his happy and friendly disposition.
