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.
AJ GOOFY BEAR - Black Lab, male, 3 years, ~100 lbs. Receiving medical attention.
DANNY - All-American mixed breed, male, 2-3 years old, 32 lbs. Danny is as sweet as he is handsome. He always looks like he is smiling, and his foster mom thinks he really is. The world is all about fun to him. He greets everyone like they are friends. Danny loves kids and other dogs. Cats are unknown. He is house trained and not destructive. Danny will go for a walk with his person and then come home and settle down for a snuggle. He rides well in the car and is very social.
KHLOE - Black Lab, female, 7 months, 48 pounds. Khloe is the cutest, sweetest little black lab. True to her breed, she loves her people (adults and children alike), loves other dogs, and is good with cats. Khloe is almost completely housebroken and has started alerting at the door when she wants to go out. She can sit and shake like a champ. Khloe has a ton of puppy energy that needs to be let out, and would prefer a big yard she can play fetch in. She loves the company of the other dog in her foster home and would likely love another active dog in the household to play tug with. She might be a little too high energy for toddlers, but we're sure she would love young children to be able to run around outside with. Khloe's going to make someone a great best friend for a long, long time!
LADY SASHA - White German Shepherd, female, 11 years, ~65 lbs. Lady Sasha found herself at a shelter due to a death in the family. This loving girl had her world turned upside down, and became very stressed, but, as sad as she was, her beautiful spirit continued to shine, making her a real favorite of the shelter staff. The shelter realized she needed to get back into a home as soon as possible, and contacted us to see if we could help. On meeting this gentle, unassuming and noble lady, we could not say no, she is a true Peppertree dog. In her foster home Lady Sasha has started to relax and show her personality, which her foster mom describes as practically perfect. She is affectionate with her family and a real leaner - but a cautious dog by nature, not the type to bound up to strangers and give them kisses! Her kisses are bestowed more discreetly. An easy guest, she is content to take a walk, and then take a nap. Lady Sasha is very eager to please, learns quickly, and is sure to bond very strongly with her family. Like most German Shepherds she really follows the lead of her people, and if they are happy and relaxed, she is happy and relaxed, but if things are overwhelming she gets overwhelmed which is why a quiet home would suit her best. While she does enjoy the company of other dogs and older children, the rough play of youngsters overwhelms her, a home with no small children and an easy going dog would be ideal. Lady Sasha spent most of her life outside in the country, and while she is house trained, crate trained, and has excellent manners, she is sometimes unsure in a home environment and will need a supportive family to keep building on her positive experiences as she continues to gain confidence and relax.
MISTER MAN - Lab/Rottweiler mix, male, 4 years, 85 lbs. Mister Man is a big dog with a big heart! Friendly and loving, this boy loves going to the dog park to play, he has excellent canine social skills! In the house he is well behaved too. Mister Man is crate trained and while he may chew on his bed now and then he will go to his crate when asked, knows "move back," "paw," "wait" and a bunch of other commands. He loves to play with his toys and is a devoted, loving boy with a real goofy side, although when you first meet him he seems a bit reserved and unassuming - unless you are at the dog park that is! At the dog park he likes to let loose and play. Mister Man lived with other dogs when he was younger but has been an only dog for a while, we suspect he'll do well with other dogs though. He is a pretty soft boy and can be a bit stubborn, but overall he wants so make his person happy. He has been around cats to visit and does well, but he has never lived with a cat regularly and would likely need an introduction to be sure.
SAMMI - Shepherd Mix, female, 5-8 years, 50 lbs. Sammi is a wonderful calm, relaxed dog. She loves having her belly rubbed, and giving kisses, too! She knows how to sit, lay down and gives paw. She is a quiet girl who rarely barks. Sammi is great with cats, other dogs and kids. She would do great in any home, but since she is a mature lady and may not be used to tugging or pulling from small children, we'd like to see her in a home with older children only. She loves to just lay around and sleep, or to sit in the sun outside on the grass. Sammi is just an all around great dog that just wants to be loved.
SERENA - Terrier mix, female, 12 weeks, 10 lbs. Serena is a 3 month old terrier mix. She's an active puppy who likes to explore her surroundings. She's very playful and will run around the house with the puppy zoomies! Serena is very sweet and also loves to cuddle. She's crate trained, good with children, and good with other dogs.
