BIO: Peanut came from Alabama when his owner could no longer care for him. She had rescued him from a family that neglected him for the first 5 years and likely a man had hit him with his hat because he does not care for men wearing hats. Our wish list for Peanut includes:
- A fenced yard
- No apartments
- Another dog to keep him company if you work outside of the home
- No children or grandchildren unless they are over 10 years of age and closely monitored
- Someone experienced with escape artists
Peanut is a little timid and you have to let him come to you, but after he’s checked you out then he’s fine with you and wants your attention. He actually does better with women than men but he can tolerate men too as long as they don’t push him.
He gets along with all small dogs but he was an only dog too. His most recent owner was elderly person and home all the time.
Peanut must have a fenced yard and a doggie door would be an added bonus. Also, he is an escape artist so you’ll have to watch him when you open a dog or go through a gate. We’ve been working with him on this and he’s gotten better, but if he sees an opportunity he’ll take it so be forewarned.
You can’t go wrong with this sweet boy!
============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into CT, RI, NH, ME, or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please review Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast and MidWest. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
