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.
ALEA - Lab/Plott hound mix, female, ~7 years, 60 lbs. ALEA - Alea (Maggie Mae to her foster family) was a stray found in Brooklyn in 2013. We think she is a 7 year old Lab/Hound mix; we know she is a 60-pound bundle of love. She's eager to be around people. She romps in the fenced yard with her four-legged foster brothers and chases birds, chickens, and the foster family's cat. If you don't have a fenced yard, she would love a daily run or walk. Her foster family has young children, and believes she'd be happiest living without kids under 10. With just a little love and attention, Alea is a wonderful companion.

BENSON - Bichon mix, male, 10 years, 20 lbs. Benson was surrendered to a NYC shelter. His fur was matted when he arrived, but he’s been cleanup and shaved down and is looking quite dapper! Benson is sweet and gets along with other dogs and cats. He’s particularly fond of the 15 year-old cat in his foster home. He loves to give her kisses! He may be 10, but he’s still playful and is having fun with his new stuffed quacking duck! Like many small dogs, he does get a bit territorial with the dog beds and toys because he thinks everything belongs to him. He’s great with strangers, walks well on a leash, enjoys car rides, rarely barks, and is just an all around sweetheart! Because he is an older gentleman, we won't place him in a home with young children.
DAISY MAE - Dachshund/Beagle mix, female, 1-2 years, ~ 20 lb. Daisy Mae is a petite and sweet little girl with a love of tennis balls! This pretty girl has soft fur and deep brown eyes, but she is more than a champion snuggler, she is also an expert player. Darling Daisy Mae is crate trained, does well on the leash and is working on her basic obedience but will need someone to continue the work, and keep reinforcing that the world is a happy, safe place. Her time as a stray has left her a little fearful of new dogs, but with the right introduction she is a very social girl. In her foster home Daisy Mae loves to play with her foster brother and would likely enjoy a canine companion, although she does not have a lot of experience with bigger dogs. She does well with cats but we suggest they are dog savvy as she does like to play. We do not feel she is the right dog for a family with small children, but does very well with older children. This little girl is a real pip and while she can be a little shy and unsure in new situations, when she is comfortable she becomes a confident, happy girl.
MANGO - Feist/lab mix, female, 5 1/2 years old. Mango is a sweet, shy dog with a friendly personality. She is very affectionate, and will love to cuddle with her new owner. Mango likes her crate, is house trained, and is easily motivated with food. She will make a great addition to any family with older children. She gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats. Mango would love a home with a fenced-in yard. She can't wait to start her life with you!
STEWIE - Beagle, male, 6-8 years, 45 lbs. Stewie is a friendly beagle who wants nothing more than to have a home and people of his own. He has a wonderful personality and is good with other dogs, cats and children. Stewie is crate trained, house trained and walks well on his leash with only a little bit of pulling, as he’s following his nose! He is just an easy dog to have around!
SUZIE JEAN - Cairn Terrier, female, 4 years, ~15 lbs. Suzie Jean ended up at local shelter when owner became seriously ill. She is a happy girl who rides well in the car, loves to play fetch (and chase cats!) and does not need to be crated in the home. Suzie Jean gets along fine with male dogs but would also love to be the only dog in your life! We will not place her in a home with an invisible fence.
SYDNEY - Border Collie/Lab mix, female, 2 years, 40 lbs. Sydney is a beautiful, sweet, and loving little girl from a downstate shelter. She has excellent house manners and is an expert in sit and shake. Sydney generally tends to ignore cats unless they run, then obviously she thinks that means they want to play with her. She gets along with other dogs out in social situations but doesn't like to share the spotlight with other dogs at home. For this reason she might be best as the only dog in the household. She can be a little shy but once she gets to know you she bonds quickly and stongly. Sydney is a great off-leash dog and took a 6 mile hike recently where she was a dream off leash the whole time.
TANNON, CGC - Pit bull mix, male, 1-2 years, 40 pounds. Tannon is an enthusiastic, happy boy who is very affectionate. He's a champion hugger who wants nothing more than to be your best friend. Tannon enjoys walks and meeting people and other dogs along the way. Chasing squirrels in his fenced-in yard is a favorite pastime and he would make an excellent jogging companion. Tannon is crate trained and housebroken. Because he's a playful and energetic boy, we will only place him in a home with children who are 8 years old and over. He also has a prey drive for small animals, so we can't place Tannon in a home with cats or small dogs. 12/3/2014 - Update: congratulations, Tannon, on earning your CGC (Canine Good Citizen) designation!
