Adoptable Dogs

Peanut
Male, Terrier mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Peanut’s mom Sunny, was a survivor of the meat trade in China and Peanut was born in our shelter there after Sunny was rescued. He was the only one to survive out of the litter and was born with the Canine Distemper Virus, which caused birth defects in his legs. Peanut’s hind leg was damaged during birth so when he arrived at the rescue it had to be amputated. Despite the difficult journey, he is still very happy and shows no signs that having only three legs will slow him down at all. He gets along with other dogs and enjoys making new friends wherever he goes. While in the rescue, Peanut developed some anxiety with strangers and became quite shy with people he did not know. He has been working with an experienced trainer for a couple of months now and has overcome his fears, making him ready for his fur-ever home. With the people he knows, he is extremely loving. You will be greeted with kisses and tail wags and an immense amount of appreciation for saving him. He is potty trained and very well behaved in a home. Peanut is currently in a foster home, but is still available for adoption.

In the beginning, she would snap and snarl at each approach, but slowly learned to trust. She now gives kisses, will jump in your lap, and allow you to hold her.
