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.
ARMSTRONG - Lab/Basset mix, male, ~12 years. Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever mix, male, 12 years, 66 lbs. Armstrong, who prefers Arnie, has a handsome lab face, cute basset hound legs and a jolly personality. He's a heart stealer who loves people, other dogs, baths, belly rubs, short walks and ambling around the yard. Arnie enjoys following his foster parents around the house and will also lay quietly at their feet. Our man of few words wisely avoids drama with other dogs, is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated in the house. Arnie would be most comfortable in a home that doesn't require him to climb many stairs because of his short and stocky build. Our super-sweet boy is currently dieting and asked us to mention that "Bassadors" make wonderful weight loss companions for their family and friends. We don't yet know how he is with cats.
BOCELLI - Golden mix, male, 5 years, 65 lbs. Bocelli wants nothing more than to be by your side all day and will give you hugs if you ask him to! He is a very sweet, laid back guy who gets along wonderfully with the other 3 dogs in his foster home. Bocelli is blind, but that doesn't stop him from loving life; it's rare that his tail stops wagging, especially when he hears your voice. He responds very well to sound to help him navigate and know where to find you for some affection. A quiet home where there's someone around to keep him company during the day would be perfect for Bocelli. He would love having another laid back doggy pal to relax with, but would also be great as an only dog since that means he will get your undivided attention. Bocelli is housebroken and has perfect manners in the house so doesn't need to be crated when left alone. We're not completely sure how he is with cats, but think he would have no issues living with one. Due to his blindness, Bocelli won't be placed in a home with young children.
CASSIE - New to program and being evaluated.
DOMINO - Pointer mix, male, 11-12 weeks. Domino is an awesome pup who gets along well with kids and dogs. He would do well in a home with a young playful dog, but size doesn't matter to him - big or small, he will take them on! Potty training is going well but of course he is getting lots of attention and guidance from his foster family, which will need to be continued in her adoptive home. Domino is quite interested in cats, but can be redirected. Still, it would help if any cat in his new home is a dog-savvy one. Crate training is going well. Domino is a great little guy who will be a great family dog!
ELI - Beagle, male, 1 year old. Being evaluated in a foster home.
GINGER - Receiving medical care.
JULIE - Beagle, female, 10 years, ~20 lbs. Looking for a snuggle bunny, ooops, meant snuggle beagle? Julie is your girl. She loves to snuggle on the couch or in your bed. She likes to go for walks or just hang out. She is good with other dogs and doesn't mind if they are bigger than she is. Julie is ok with dog savvy cats, but she does like to test her speed against theirs and chase them. She is housebroken and is getting used to crate training. Julie is an absolute doll who is looking for her forever home. Donít let the number listed on her age fool you, Julie is a spunky little one.
NADINE - Black Lab mix, female, 4 years. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
PRETZEL - Black lab, male, 9 months. Pretzel was found as a stray swimming in someone's pond and totally enjoying himself. He is a sweet boy who loves everyone. He is good with kids and other dogs. Pretzel is very exuberant and sometimes plays a little rough, but is easily corrected and will learn proper limits as he gets older. He is house trained, smart, and wants to learn. Pretzel would love to be part of an active family that will give him plenty of exercise, attention, and love.
REMI - Retriever, male. New to Peppertree and being evaluated.
SEVERIDE - Aussie/Lab mix, male, ~1 year, 44 lbs. Sevvy is a handsome, sweet boy with beautiful markings and the prettiest eyes. His foster parents adore him and say that he enjoys the outdoors and playing chase the tennis ball and chase the dog. He's a happy, vigorous young fellow who enjoys daily walks and 'runs like the wind' in their fenced-in yard. Sevvy always greets his foster parents affectionately when they return home. He appreciates attention from people, but can be timid in a crowd. He is sometimes shy with other dogs, but a calm confident dog in his new home might help him to settle in more easily. He is fine with cats. Sevvy is deaf and doesn't seem to have any peripheral vision, but the vision he does have is very acute and he enjoys watching TV. He's a bright boy who knows how to sit/lay from a hand signal and could learn more commands with time and patience. He's a special boy looking for the right home.
