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.
BINGO - Dachshund? mix, male, 8 years, 22 lbs. Bingo's records state that he is a Dachshund/Shih Tzu mix. We can see the Dachshund but not so sure about the Shih tzu part! His foster mom says he looks more like a short legged Sheltie. This little boy is a lovebug who only wants your pets and approval. He is completely housebroken and his house manners are impeccable. Bingo gets along with other dogs but seems to be afraid of children, so he is looking for an adult-only home. He is not a barker, and will want to sleep with you but takes the “no” for an answer. (Although you want to give in when you look into those big adoring brown eyes.) Bingo is crate-trained, but that is probably not necessary, especially long term. If you are looking for a smallish companion dog who will happily go on walks with you and then curl up and sleep in your lap, Bingo may be the dog for you.
MARY - Wheaten Terrier mix, female, 6 years old. Just arrived and in a foster home.
MISS MOLLY - Lab/Shepherd/Husky mix, female, 7 years, 65 lbs. Miss Molly is a great girl who celebrated 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. She spent most of her life as an only dog in an adult home and would probably be happiest in a similar setting. Miss Molly is fine around kids but they are new to her and sometimes confuse her. She 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.
SEVERIDE - Australian Shepherd Mix, male, ~1 year, 44 lbs. Sevvy is a handsome, sweet boy. He’s full of life and loves to play tag with other dogs, swim, or just run around in the yard. Sevvy loves to go on walks and makes a great running partner! Inside, Sevvy is a bit shy. It seems as if Sevvy never had much experience living indoors but he is housebroken and is making great strides in feeling more and more comfortable with being indoors. Sevvy will need a family that will continue to encourage and care for him as he learns what living inside is all about. Sevvy cannot hear but it certainly doesn’t hold him back from doing the same things as a typical dog. He’s eager to please and knows some basic commands (using hand signals) and he is also taking a Canine Good Citizen class. Sevvy is good with cats.
ZINNIA - Mastiff mix, female, 8 years, 116 lbs. Zinnia is very much a Velcro dog. She is a happy girl that wants to be with her people and is eager to please. She came from the streets of NYC where she was found lying on a curb barely breathing. She is heartworm positive and has had one treatment. She will receive the second in November at Peppertree's expense. She gets along with most dogs, and at the shelter was fine with cats, but when exposed to a cat outside, there was a bit more interest than expected. Zinnia does have a weak back end so minimal stairs would benefit her, although she can climb them and has gotten better as she has gained more muscle. She is food motivated and when given a treat, will anxiously take it, unless told "gentle".
Can you offer Zinnia a soft bed and a loving home? She will give more love back than you can imagine!
