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.
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! She gets anxious when left alone, so we're looking for a home with another dog to keep her company when her humans go out. 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” and come meet Azalea at our next Peppertree adoption clinic. Azalea is fine with some cats but can't resist chasing others, so we would have to take a home with a cat on a case by case basis.
BLACKBERRY - Schnauzer(?) mix, 7-8 years, female, 13 lbs. If you are looking for a quiet, loving, affectionate girl to snuggle with, Blackberry is for you! An absolute sweetheart of a dog, she wants nothing more than to be in your lap or laying on your feet. Found as a stray in NYC, Blackberry isn't at her prettiest at the moment because the groomer had to shave her beautiful black coat right down. But she'll be back to her gorgeous self in no time! Blackberry is housebroken, rides wonderfully in the car, and loves to go for walks. She may be a little girl, but she's bursting with love to give.
HOPEFUL - Retriever, female, 3 years. Being evaluated in a foster home.
LYRIC - Hound/Shepherd (?) mix, female, 11 years, 66 lbs. Don't let her unassuming looks and her slightly elder status fool you----this sweetie has lots of life left in her! Lyric came from North Carolina when her family was moving and couldn't take her, so she was headed for the local shelter. Some "friends of Peppertree" intervened and transported her up north where her happy new life could begin. Lyric is housebroken and gets along wonderfully with all dogs, large and small. She is a smart girl and learns new commands easily. Lyric is interested in cats but would probably be ok with a dog-savvy one who could put her in her place! She loves people---all people---and prefers to be with them whenever she can. Since Lyric was kind of ignored in her previous home for reasons unclear to us, we believe she is simply making up for lost time! She will need a home with a securely fenced yard.

TURBO TAX DOT COM - Boxer, male, 5 years. We admit Turbo Tax Dot Com may be a silly name, but this boy is kind of a silly Boxer. When we met him words like cuddly, goofy, sweet, and smushy were mentioned. And yes, he's a boxer so we may have also mentioned dribbly, drooly and a face only a mother could love. But we quickly shushed those people because clearly they do not get boxers! This handsome fellow is good with other dogs, cats and LOVES children. Turbo Tax Dot Com is excellent in the car and has wonderful leash manners. He came to us with some health issues that needed medical attention, but he is on the mend and eager to find his forever home. Please allow us to add a disclaimer, Turbo Tax Dot Com is not a licensed tax preparer or CPA, we do not advise adopting him and letting him work on your taxes. To be perfect honest, he is not big on brains, but he is big on love.

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
