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.
ANNELIE - Hound/pointer mix, ~2 yrs, 45 lbs. Annelie is a sweet girl who has a wonderful personality. She is excellent with everyone, including children and other dogs. She loves attention and would like to snuggle all day. Annelie was recently returned from a trial placement, and that family asks that we report that she is an amazing, wonderful dog who did nothing wrong except be a young active girl who landed in a home that was a little too busy to give her what she needs. She is a gem!
DUDLEY - Chihuahua mix, male, 7 weeks. Dudley is a funny, crazy little puppy. He amuses everyone with his antics, and his determination has no bounds! Fortunately he's a little too small to steal slippers, because his foster mom is positive she would never get them back if he did! He would love to have a playful brother or sister to keep him busy. He is an adorable pup who will be a wonderful addition to a family who wants a loving, but goofy, little friend. We prefer not to place Dudley with children under 12 because of his delicate size. He is being fostered with other dogs 5 to 80 lbs and gets along with everyone. He will be ready for his new family after May 10th.
GINNY - Chihuahua mix, female, 7 weeks. Ginny is a favorite in her foster home! Her foster mom calls her the "energizer bunny" because she has two modes: "GO" and "snooze!" She can often be see charging after the larger dogs in her foster home, bound and determined to get her toy back. Ginny also loves people and enjoys being held, though not quite as much as she seems to enjoy belly rubs. She is a very sweet, submissive puppy who will make someone very happy. We prefer not to place Ginny with children under 12 because of her delicate size. She is being fostered with other dogs 5 to 80 lbs and gets along with everyone. She will be ready for her new family after May 10th.
HARPER - Border Collie mix, male, 2 years, 33 lbs. Harper is adjusting very well in his foster home. He is a happy and cuddly boy with plenty of kisses to give. Harper walks nicely on the leash, likes to ride in the car and gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home. He appears to be fully housebroken and has been good in a crate when used. Harper is mature enough not to be destructive in the house and has shown great manners and a very sweet disposition. Click here see more pictures of Harper on Petfinder.com.
LAMBERT - Shepherd? mix, male, 1-2 years, ~42 lbs. Lambert recently arrived from a GA shelter. He is extremely sweet, slightly timid, and a very handsome boy. His foster mom remarks she has never seen a dog with such expressive eyes. He is good with the other dogs in the foster home; cats are unknown. Lambert walks nicely on a leash and has a moderate energy level.
LUNA - Chihuahua mix, female, 11 weeks. Luna, affectionately called "Dora the Explorer" by her foster mom, is the last of her litter. We thought Luna had a home, but her placement fell through unexpectedly - not because of any fault with Luna. She is super-sweet and, like all puppies, she loves to play. Luna is quite the little pistol with her foster siblings! She never shies from any adventure, she can always be found bounding after the other dogs. (She laughs in the face of danger!) We prefer not to place Luna with children under 12 because of her delicate size. She is being fostered with other dogs 5 to 80 lbs and gets along with everyone. Luna is a wonderful puppy who is patiently waiting to be someone's little princess.
MADRA - Boxer, female, 3 years, ~50 lbs. Madra recently arrived from GA and is an absolute doll. She was adopted by a family with 2 cats and, while Madra wanted to play with the cats, the cats reacted poorly to her presence in the home. We believe she would be okay with a dog-savvy cat because she does have interest in playing with all she meets, whether human, dog or cat. She returned from her trial home pretty wound up and anxious to play with the two dogs presently in her foster home. Madra simply loves having a regular doggy playmate. She is working on being 100% housebroken and is just about there. What a sweet, quiet, loving, and well mannered dog Madra is; she doesn’t jump, and walks well on a leash. She had a rough start in life, but continues to be a sweet and playful girl. We know she will only get better with a little love, security and training! Madra is heartworm positive and is being treated at Peppertree’s expense; once finished with the treatment there should be no long-term effects.
NEVILLE - Chihuahua mix, male, 7 weeks. Neville is a cutie-pie! His foster mom affectionately calls this mischievous little bugger, "Neville Devil." Don't let him fool you though, when he's not trying to untie shoelaces, Neville is sweet sweet sweet! He loves to cuddle and give kisses. He will make a wonderful companion for someone looking for a bright, affectionate puppy who greets every adventure with gusto! We prefer not to place Neville with children under 12 because of his delicate size. He is being fostered with other dogs 5 to 80 lbs and gets along with everyone. He will be ready for his new family after May 10th.
OREO - Lab mix, male, ~1 year. OREO is a lovely boy! He has lived peacefully with a cat and other dogs and with young children as well. He is fine with all. OREO is playful and funny and aims to please. He is fond of chewing items that he shouldn’t, but the use of a crate when needed and also providing lots of appropriate toys should take care of that! He tends to be mouthy when playing, and he will need an adopter who can teach him that's not appropriate. He would benefit from a home with another playful dog who can help him burn off energy in an acceptable way.
