Peanut was born with a unique shape to his front legs. He’s a little bowlegged and his feet turn backward, but he doesn’t know he’s different than any other fun-loving dog. If you can picture Charlie Chaplin in a beagle body, you’ll have a good idea of what Peanut looks like. Other than his crooked legs, Peanut is very healthy. He walks and runs without difficulty on surfaces that aren’t too hard and has no trouble keeping up with his foster brothers and sisters.
Peanut was left at an animal shelter when a landlord decided he was not welcome. Knowing that his chances in a shelter were not good, United Animal Friends took him into its foster program and is now seeking a forever home for the 4-year-old boy. He is wonderful with children and dogs and loves people. He would like to have another dog his size to play with. He is very affectionate and a champion cuddler. Peanut is neutered, micro-chipped, up to date with vaccinations, crate-trained, and loves to ride in the car.
