Peanut is adorable-practically scrumptiously edible. She even smiles. She’s an awesome cuddler and gives copious kisses on your face when lying down. She does not bite and rarely barks (inside). She gives an impatient whine when first waking up because she’s excited to go outside. She also shares an excited whine and stands on her hind legs when one comes home. She is housetrained (with a few accidents from time to time since we’ve fostered her). She loves her crate and willingly puts herself to bed each night. She rarely tires when playing fetch with a ball or rope toy in the house but will quickly settle when her humans get tired. She is highly trainable. In just a few weeks, Peanut has learned sit, stand, spin, down, come, stay, and paw. She is extremely patient and tolerates my 11-year old daughter folding her ears in various ear dos, checking out her dental hygiene, making her dance, and situating her at my computer so she can type on my keyboard and use my mouse. She loves destroying plush toys. She will settle at your feet or in her crate while her humans work or do remote school. She washes her face like a cat. With her previous foster family, she did great with two other dogs in the household. She will bark when the doorbell rings and strangers come over, but she quickly settles down when she sees that they are not a threat.
Peanut loves to go outside; however, she experiences a lot anxiety when she encounters dogs, bicyclists or just people in general while out on a walk. She expresses her anxiety with barking and sometimes will hide behind my legs. She may do better in a home with a fenced yard or someone willing to work with her anxiety issues while out on long walks. She pulls some on her leash, but it's not unmanageable and she's shown improvement when we've worked with her.
Peanut's adoption fee is $275. Must be willing to drive to Towson, MD to meet/adopt Peanut.
Peanut lacks confidence and would benefit greatly from basic training classes and another dog buddy as a role model.
