Peanut has really come out of his shell, so to speak! When this seven to nine-year-old Chihuahua mix arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on June 24th, a shelter volunteer had this to share: “Peanut came in right before closing. I held him while he got his shots and heartworm test. He was heartworm positive. But, oh my, what a sweet little boy! He looks well cared for and looks to be older. This little one is looking for a lap!”
On June 26th, Gretchen Kozen, a Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, reached out to us and asked for our help with Peanut. We provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. The very next day Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina stepped forward to take Peanut! He had his heartworm treatment on August 10th and 11th.
The rescue had this message for us from Peanut: “Hi! I’m just a little old man who loves human attention! I tolerate big dogs, but I’m really not a fan if they’re too energetic. I’d prefer a home with small dogs who I can play with, laid-back big dogs, or a home with no dogs. I’m potty trained and crate trained. Although sometimes you may hear me bark, other than that, I’m definitely a quiet doggy! My foster likes to leave the TV on for me when I’m in the crate, and I like that! I’m very laid-back, sweet, and calm. I just love to snuggle up on the couch or lay outside in the sun!” To see more photos of Peanut, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Peanut.
UPDATE! Peanut has been adopted!
