From the Foster:

It is impossible not to fall in love with Peanut. He’s the prefect mix of snuggles, independence, and adorableness.

 

Things he loves: If Peanut is awake, he’s asking for attention. He loves to get his belly rubbed and would be content getting pet all day. He has his little perch he will sit on all day and wait for his humans to give him pets (the perch is actually a folded blanket on the end of the couch). He also likes to look out the window at all the exciting things outside.

 

Things he does not like: Peanut is not a fan of things like exams, taking meds, and getting baths. He’s got that little dog attitude so he prefers to be groomed when he wants… which is never. (He does like to be brushed… just nothing else when it comes to grooming.)

 

Things I love about him: Peanut is an easy going dude. He’s content being held or walking. And I just love his little prance, ears, tail wag, his smile, snuggles… I could go on for days.

 

Things we are working on: Peanut is housetrained but he does have some marking tendencies - that should hopefully get better with his neuter. He’s also quite independent so sometimes he needs motivation (aka. treats) to listen. He’s also a terrible beggar for people food.

 

Important to note about Peanut: he’s very much a homebody. I don’t think he got much socialization beyond his home in the past so he gets very anxious when he leaves the house. We’re working on getting him calm in new environments but this will be an ongoing work in progress.

 

Peanut is one of those dogs that instantly makes you go “awwww” every time you see him. Or he looks at you. Or he stretches. Or rolls over. Or he walks. Anyone who adopts him should be prepared to give higher pitched squeals multiple times a day.
