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.
BISCUIT - Beagle, male, 4 years, 35 lbs. Biscuit is house trained and loves to be with people. He especially loves to share a snack (or take the whole thing when you aren't looking.) He enjoys walks and belly rubs and can brighten anyone's day. Biscuit is good with kids and other dogs. Cats are unknown.
BRUNO - All-American mix, male, 1 year, 52 lbs. Bruno is a sweet, calm dog who loves people and kids. We are really scratching our heads over his breed mix - we were told Akita/Bulldog, but personality-wise he is really much more like a Lab, a cheerful, affectionate guy. Even though he's not petite, he thinks he's a lap dog and will gladly climb up there to be petted. He will sit patiently for treats and is learning more commands in his foster home. He likes cats and other dogs too! Bruno is an amazing dog and would be a wonderful addition to any family.
FRANKIE MEATBALL - Hound/Terrier mix, male, 3-4 years, ~30 lbs. Frankie was returned to Peppertree for no fault of his own. He is a very smart, medium to medium-high energy dog who loves to play. This sometimes leads to him getting over-excited, so we'd prefer to place him in a home with only older children who will understand and recognize when he needs a time out. Frankie is great with other dogs. He is house-broken and crate trained, and enjoys riding in the car. He knows some basic commands and is working on nice leash manners when out walking. Frankie is shy in new situations, but with love and patience his foster mom is helping him work through that. When he settles in, he bonds strongly to his people and is very in tune to their moods. Frankie just LOVES to snuggle.
JESSIE - Hound/lab mix, female, ~2 years, 40 lbs. How many short straws can a girl get?? Well, just ask Jessie! Sheís had several, but you would never know once you get to know her. She has lost a leg (we donít know why or how), she had pups that all died, she was brought to a vet because she was having problems delivering her babies, and her owners never came back for her after her c-section! How bummed would you be?? Not Jessie - she has a spirit that that is unreal! She is lovable, affectionate, happy, bouncy, playful, active, all on three legs! She would prefer to go up 3 steps versus the ramp at her foster home. Amazing! She is living with 6 other dogs from 140 lbs to 11 lbs and gets along with everyone. She is totally housebroken, has great manners, and loves to be loved. She is awesome with kids. You need to meet Jessie - she is an inspiration! We donít know how she is with cats. She is an awesome girl that will not disappoint you. Wonít you open your heart and home to this beautiful girl? Jessie really deserves a chance to live a happy, playful, carefree life after all she has been through.
LUCAH - Great Pyrenees/German shepherd mix, male, 8 months, 60 lbs. Lucah came to us from Tennessee. His parents were neighborhood dogs who had a fly by night romance, mom a Great Pyrenees and dad a German Shepherd, and boy did they produce one handsome, fuzzy, puppy. For fans of big, fluffy dogs, look no further - Lucah will not disappoint! He is a relaxed and friendly boy who gets along with other dogs, cats and children. Lucah is working on basic commands such as sit, down and stay in his foster home and at his age he should be very trainable. He is being crate-trained and is catching on quickly. Lucah is very playful when he has a canine companion to romp around with, and loves to carry around his rope toy, go for walks, and enjoy a nice car rides. Once his busy day is over, Lucah will curl up and snuggle with you.
MY BUDDY - Golden Retriever, male, 11 years, 95 lbs. My Buddy was brought to Peppertree by his owner who sadly had to give him up due to serious health issues she is experiencing. Buddy is a Golden Retriever through and through! Full of love, snuggles, and a desire to be close to his people. Buddy was very nervous when he first moved in with his foster family but after only a few days he warmed right up and let his adorable personality shine through! He loves being brushed, listening to Classical and Disco music, to go for walks and car rides, laze under a shady tree, play with his foster cat siblings, and to give kisses to the neighborhood kids while on his daily walks. Buddy is completely house trained and has been a perfect houseguest. He does require a bit of help with stairs being that he is an older fellow, so a home without too many stairs would be best for him. If you are looking for a snugly sweetheart who only asks for love, then this is the guy for you! Buddy is just perfect for a family or individual looking for a best furry companion.
NELSON - Lab/Bull Terrier mix, male, 2 years, 50 lbs.
RANGER - Aussie mix, male, 2 years, 40 lbs. Ranger is a very sweet, loving dog who loves to cuddle and give kisses. He has good leash manners and is crated nicely at night. He is mellow and gets along well with other dogs. And he is not a barker! He does like chipmunks a lot so you have to be aware of them when you walk him. He would do best in a house without cats. He is making great progress with potty training and knows the commands "sit", "lay down" and "leave it." He is a very smart boy! His foster family and foster doggie brother love him and hope he finds a loving forever family. And he is awfully cute!
RUDY AND JACK - Shih Tzu's, male, 6 years, 15 lbs each. This adorable pair of bookends will be sure to bring you joy and 100 smiles a day. Rudy and Jack are brothers who have been together their entire lives, and rely on each other, so, we are looking for a home that can keep them together. These boys are just handsome bundles of love that live to snuggle. They are good with other dogs and cats, and just love people. Due to their size we do not think they would be best in a home with small children. They do well at being in a crate, and do require a fenced in yard, the foster home feels it is a must.
