Meet Peanut

Handsome PEANUT! Peanut is a small Chihuahua, around 6 yrs. old, 5 lbs (he needs to gain a little). He is shy until he gets to know you but once he trusts he is a your little shadow!

Please read all about Peanut (below) and if you feel you are a good match for him and want to meet him, complete an application found on our website at the following link

Peanut is a quiet little guy who takes some time to build trust. He is very affectionate and loves gentle chin scratches. He will even paw gingerly at your arm to ask for more pets. Peanut is not playful but is curious and cuddly. He enjoys long naps and exploring around the yard. Peanut also loves going for short walks and walks well on a leash. He is house trained when taken out on a schedule and sleeps quietly in his crate at night.
He startles easily and does not like sudden movements so a home without kids would be best. He gets along with the two, small, female dogs in his foster home but would do fine as an only dog.

An apartment may not be a good fit because he barks at noises such as car going by, doors closing etc.
Peanut wants to be with “his person” all the time so someone who works from home or is retired would be perfect.

Peanut is:
• crate trained and house trained
• leash trained for short walks
• does well with other dogs (he could easily be an only dog)
• loves naps and exploring his back yard
• he is timid at first and then is will be your shadow

Peanut is up to date on his vaccines had flea treatment, had de-wormer, had his heartworm test and he is microchipped and neutered. He also has had his teeth cleaned and a dental. His adoption fee is $400.
