About one and a half years ago after losing my dog, I came to the shelter with the intention of “just looking.”  While walking around, I passed a cage with a small brown dog with one white paw. She was leaning against the gate and as I reached toward her, she put her white paw on my arm. That move and her big brown eyes caught my heart.

Little Peanut came home with me that day. She has bonded completely with my cat, Chief, and they play and sleep side by side. Peanut is the cuddle dog of the neighborhood and has made many dog friends along our daily walks. She is the happiest when her belly is scratched while curled up in my arms. Peanut has found her forever home.
