Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: Approx 1yr
Little Peanut is quite the catch at approximately one year and 7 pounds. She is amazing with all three of her big foster brothers (one dog is at 80 pounds!). She is social, but not annoying with any of them. She is EXCELLENT with cats – no chasing, not fearful – just easily coexists. She is crate trained and never has an accident in her kennel. She has not had an accident in the house, but we do treat her like a puppy for now. She is social with everyone – never snappy or growly – even with big men! She is excellent on car rides – both crated and loose. She has no separation anxiety and is great alone. I do think Peanut would benefit being with another dog if she is going to be left long hours alone. She is not an escape artist, but she is small – so an ultra -secure yard is a must. I do think she would do excellent in an apartment/condo with how quiet and low key she is. Peanut is not a picky eater – she is eating very well with her foster brothers. She is healthy and active, but settles down very nice in the house and just wants to cuddle for long hours. Peanut could benefit from some obedience training, but she is coming along nicely at her foster home. She is leash trained – best on a harness. We could not get her to sit next to her buddy Thumper, but now she sits like a princess! She is great off leash – follows you really close and listens, but needs serious work on coming up to you when outside. She is a piece of cake in the house. Peanut could be placed with older kids – 8 and older to be respectful of her tiny size – she is very trusting and never aggressive. She would be an excellent companion for older people, but she does like to walk right by your legs, so no one with balance issues (though she has never tripped her foster parents). She can live with big dogs, little dogs, cats, donkeys (yes there are donkeys at her foster parent’s house), you name it – she is good with everyone! She is a one of a kind little girl!!!
