Peanut in Las Vegas, NV


Here is Peanut with her new family…

Hello! Meet Peanut, a 6-yr-old, female, Blenheim, born 6/22/2017 who is a Cavalier Cocker Spaniel mix. Peanut is very energetic. She loves to take walks, chase a ball, play with her toys and cuddle. She came into Rescue because her owners were no longer able to give her the exercise she needed and the new wife had an allergic reaction when Peanut was near.

Peanut is house trained and sleeps in a crate. Her foster mother has her on a schedule and feels that Peanut is more comfortable with this because she knows what to expect and this helps her to be calm and not anxious.

Peanut will do well with an active owner, one who will take her with them and give her the exercise she needs. If there are children, it would be ideal if they were older so that they understand how to play with dogs. Peanut loves her toys, however, her prior owner reported that when playing with her toys, she can be aggressive if you try to take her toy away. She does not bite, but will growl. We have not seen this behavior in foster care though. 

Peanut has some anxiety when she is in the car, this last for about 30/40 minutes, then she settles. This could be due to having been driven away from her owners in a car. We believe once she is acclimated to her new owner(s) she will settle down and be an absolutely wonderful fur baby.
