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.
BRAEDEN - Lab/Feist mix, female, 9-10 months, 30 lbs. Braeden is a gorgeous, petite girl who looks and acts like a mini chocolate Lab. Her underbite gives her the cutest smile! True to the retriever breed, she loves to carry toys and shoes wherever she goes. She is in a foster home with other dogs and gets along beautifully with everyone, but might be too playful for cats. Braeden is crate-trained, rides beautifully in the car, and knows "sit." She is extremely smart, obedient, and well-behaved. She loves to be with people and is very affectionate. Braeden is very gentle and we expect she would be fine with children.
MARGE - Lab mix, female, 2 years, 80 lb. Marge was picked up as a stray in Rensselaer County and no one has been searching for her, much to our bewilderment. She is receiving medical care for an eye infection and skin infection, and diet and exercise for her "beyond-chubby" figure. Marge is a sweet girl who is fine with other dogs, but what she lives for is to spend time with her people. We suspect she would be fine with cats but we don't know for sure. Marge has excellent house manners, doesn't need to be crated, totally housebroken, and takes treats nicely. She is a bit shy at first but with good food and security her personality breaks through more each day. There are no young children in her foster home, but it's hard to imagine Marge having trouble with anyone or anything. We think, however, that she would prefer a quiet household with someone who wants a very loving companion.
OUGIE - Spaniel mix, 6 years, male, 20 lbs. Ougie is one of the sweetest and most easy-going dogs his foster parents have had the pleasure of meeting. He wants nothing more than for you to sit down so he can curl up next to you. He is housebroken, respectful of human belongings, and doesn't bark (not even at squirrels!!!) Ougie is accepting and patient with other dogs, even energetic puppies. It's the love and presence of his human that little Ougie looks for. He also enjoys "prancing" around the neighborhood stretching his little legs and wagging his precious Swiffer sweeper tail as high as can be. Ougie has been diagnosed with epilepsy, but sticking to his routine medication schedule has prevented his foster parents from noticing any symptoms so far.
