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.
COLBEY - Tree Walking Coonhound/Lab mix, male, 1 1/2 years, 55 lbs. Colbey is a great family dog. He loves everyone and other dogs. He hasn't been cat tested but met some at the vet's and had only minimal interest. Colby is house trained and knows basic commands. He can play all day but settles down nicely for a snuggle after play time.
HELENE - Sato, female, 2-3 years old. What is a Sato you might ask? Well, a Sato is a Puerto Rican street dog. And how did a Sato get to Upstate NY you may be asking next? Well, darling Helene had some puppies that were pulled by a Rottweiler rescue in another state, thinking they were Rotties, and they could not bear to leave Mom behind. When she arrived and was 35 pounds and delicate as a fawn they realized she was definitely not a Rottweiler, but she was clearly a loving dog, a devoted mother, and very sweet. Eager to find her a home they asked us if we had room for this "Nottie" (not a Rottie, get it?) as they were worried she would not get interest with their group. We had already agreed to take some of the puppies, Kerry and Elena who have already been placed. When we met Helene, we knew she was meant to be a Peppertree dog from the moment she gently approached one of our volunteers and tentatively touched her paw to their leg. Helene is an unassuming girl who does not demand love or attention, but blossoms when she receives it. And she still knows to have fun and loves to play with other dogs. She has amazing dog skills and is very social. Helene has good house manners, and while she is still perfecting her house breaking she is almost there. She is good with children, and does well with a dog savvy cat. Helene will make some family very lucky.
MARTY - Italian greyhound mix, male, 3 years old, 17 pounds. Marty is a small white dog with pale blond markings. He was turned into a New York City shelter because the owner had too many dogs. He is underweight so needs to put on a few pounds. Marty is shy at first, but warms up quickly and is very affectionate. He loves to cuddle and will give kisses and his paw to get your attention. He likes to put his head in your lap so that he can roll over and have belly rubs. His prior owner said that he is wonderful with kids. Marty seems good so far with other dogs in the foster home. He walks well on a leash and we are working on crate training. How he is with cats is unknown.
SPOT - Pointer mix, male, 2 years, 40 lbs. Spot is a wonderful, happy, and playful dog! He loves everyone he meets whether itís children, other dogs, or cats. Spot is very affectionate and likes to shower his people with lots of kisses. He lives with three other dogs in his foster home and his favorite game to play with them is tug of war. When he's not playing with his canine friends, Spot enjoys snuggling on the couch so he can get lots of pets from his foster family. He is great on a leash and loves to go for rides in the car. Spot is eager to please and is a quick learner.
