Introducing Peanut ❤️❤️

Peanut is a 1-2 year old, Staffordshire terrier mix. Peanut was found as a stray with some terrible wounds, and battle scars from what is believed to be human related. Peanut was fearful, and unsure of a lot of things in the beginning. I visited with peanut a few times during his recovery at the vet. After a lot of treats, and baby talk, he decided that he would like to join the Animal Friends family!

Peanut has spent the last 6 weeks, healing, and learning how to be a dog again. After a few bags of food, lots of love, treats, visitors, and training with our staff, he has made HUGE strides. He has discovered his love for Peanut butter, toys, walks, lunch time with the staff, car rides, couches, windows, and beds!

We will never understand how Peanut was so mistreated in the past. This guy has nothing but love to offer from here on out! He is kennel trained, potty trained, cat & dog friendly, his leash training improves daily, and there isn’t anything he will not do for a treat!! Peanut has had no issues with children, but due to his activity level, we will only allow him to go with a family, with older children!

Peanut will need a home that can provide him with enough space for his random zoomies, lots of toys, a comfy couch, a window to look out, patience & time to continue his training, and a lot of love! He would benefit greatly from a family that will include him, within an active lifestyle!!

Peanut has been neutered, is up to date on core vaccines, has been dewormed, and given flea & tick preventative.

His adoption fee is $85 but his potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.
