Meet Peggy


SHEPARD/BOXER MIX- Sleek tan jacket, short perky ears, greying around the muzzle, huge smile!
ADULT FEMALE- Est DOB: March 2009
ARRIVED: March 19, 2015
HISTORY: Peggy was pulled from a high kill shelter when her time was "up."

When we first met Peggy at the high kill shelter where animal control had dumped her, she had THE saddest look on her face. This middle aged lady was confused and wondered what she had done wrong to wind up in danger and in need of a new pet job. Today, Peggy is safe and we love her to pieces. Talk about a Pretty Woman now! She has added some much needed pounds (perhaps a few too many) and she is smiling. She wiggles with great excitement as folks select her for walks and she rolls on her back with great delight (something she could NOT do in her cement kennel at the shelter). The pond on our property is a source of wondrous joy for her as she wades out into it and then slowly sinks down looking like an alligator with only the top of her head and back visible!  New life has been breathed into this friendly, bubbly lady!

A Word from Peggy
“Hi There! Do you want to take me for a walk? I won’t bark at you like everyone else…I am a very polite pup. I see people walk up and down this road all day, and I have a smile for each of them! When I went for a sleepover, I often got comfy on their couch. They would love to adopt me, but are away too much for travel to be a good permanent home. They sure were kind to me though!”

What Peggy Needs in Her Home
Peggy can be a bit picky about dogs, and cats might be too enticing for her to ignore! A family with older kids or a couple simply needing to fill a pet void, would be a perfect match for her. She has plenty of practice at being an indoor dog, and will happily sleep at your feet while you are watching television (Maybe she might like to sleep beside you!) Peggy has never met a stranger so come on by soon, find your new friend and tell her, “You’re coming home with me!”
