Meet adoptable one year old, deaf Aussie/shepherd mix Peanut who is looking for a loving home with someone who will cherish him and always keep him safe.
Hi I’m Peanut….aka Sweet Pea! I am a 1 year old male Australian Shepherd Mix. When Speak! first received me, my poor body was covered in sores, scabs and scars; all reminders of my previous life. They tell me that I deserve so much more in life! I totally agree.
I have great vision, but I am deaf. Not being able to hear is not a problem for me. In fact, it makes me the best dog to have! I don’t get scared at thunder; I don’t worry when the delivery truck comes around, and I don’t bark at strange sounds. I know a lot of commands already: sit, come, down, wait, stay, walk, left, right, good dog and bad dog.
My foster mom says my only bad habit is that I like counters and think I should be up on them. (Geesh….I don’t see a problem!) I’m not bad, but I just like to be in high places. Foster mom tells me I should NOT jump on counters! I reminded her that I am super calm and quite chill. I don’t chew, bite, or nip. I give plenty of kisses and hugs. I also like to snuggle a bit at night, but then prefer to sleep on the floor.
I am super quiet in my crate at night and when my human goes to work. I am potty trained. Did I mention I am quiet? I just need some one to notice when I ask to go out. I’m subtle, but do give signs when l walk to the door and look at you saying, “Hello, let’s go out!” My foster mom also says that I need a visible fence – a 6 ft fence – as I have been known to try and check out the neighbors yard but I will come back.
I am the perfect, loveable, snuggly, sweet boy and I am up-to-date….whatever that means. Foster mom made sure I had all my vaccinations, a heartworm test (negative) and a microchip. I do require monthly preventatives for fleas and ticks as well as heartworms.
