Peanut ~ in Virginia

Looking for a Home

My name is Peanut and I am far better looking now - minus all the hair!! - than I was a couple of days ago. You would have laughed at my wildly unruly, matted and filthy coat. I am a very friendly, neutered male in SW Virginia. They think I am 7 or 8 years old and I am up to date on my vaccines, HW tested and will have a dental next week, so my pearly whites will shine!!

I weigh in at about 12 pounds, and as you can see I am small, dark and handsome!! I was turned in because I was apparently not good with children, however, they didn't give the right phone number or address, so we couldn't find out exactly what that meant - I am so friendly that I think if the kids were calm and respectful I would be OK. Other dogs are OK - I don't know any cats though, do you?

I am crate trained but having a problem with housebreaking - that could be fixed, I think, as I believe I was at one time. Although I may appear to be injured in my picture I'm a o.k. I'm just wearing my bad boy band until I can remember how this housebreaking stuff works! This past summer it was apparent that I was left tied out in a yard all the time. My adoption fee will be $200.

Preference will be given to local or in state applicants. Peanut's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation.

If you interested in Peanut please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Lyda at and let me know you are interested in Peanut (please include your name and state so I can find your application in our files).
