Meet Peanut, a beautiful 1 year-old Min Pin/Chihuahua mix spayed female with very impressive ears and really pretty markings—she’s the color of a Milky Way candy bar! She also has a very interesting cowlick on the back of her neck which makes it look like she has a natural mohawk! This girl found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she would have more time to find the perfect new home. We don’t have any history on Peanut’s previous life but she is a happy, active, outgoing girl who is eager to start the next chapter of life in her permanent home. Peanut is dog-friendly and enjoys meeting new people but as a young dog, she can be a little mouthy when playing. For that reason, a home with adults only or older children would be best. Peanut keeps her crate spotless so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She walks nicely on a leash and has plenty of spunk to go on long walks or hikes and can certainly keep up with the big dogs. She’s going to make a really fun companion for one lucky person or family! Peanut weighs about 16 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Peanut. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
