Hi, I'm Peanut. I’m adopted!
Chihuahua Terrier | Young | Male | Small
Peanut came into a local shelter as a stray with a multitude of injuries. He had a broken bone in his paw, a broken pelvis, and a broken hip. Luckily, one of fosters was looking for a medical case to care for, so we were able to take him into our program and get him the care he needed.
With his broken bones all mended, he is now ready to find his forever home. He started out as quite a shy little guy, but has blossomed as he has gotten healthier and more comfortable. Now he loves to greet new people in his home, runs around and plays with the other dogs – both big and small, and will share the couch with the cat. He is a pretty quiet and easy going pup and does well in a crate. He will occasionally still chew things he shouldn’t (mostly shoelaces), but
can be redirected with bully sticks or other chews, which he loves. Due to Peanut’s size, we think he will be best with kids over 8 years old. He probably will need a fenced yard as he still gets nervous when outside his comfort zone and we are still evaluating his leash walking skills.
Interested in meeting him? Watch for him at an upcoming show!
