What an adorable dog Peanut is! He’s a 12 year old, 22 pound Bichon Frise. Peanut’s owner had a stroke and found herself unable to keep Peanut. She thought she had no options but to euthanize him. Thankfully a kind woman met Peanut’s owner, heard her story and offered to help her find a home for Peanut.

Peanut has lived with another dog and would do well in a home with a dog whose temperament is like his: mellow and incredibly sweet. It is unknown how Peanut would do in a home with cats as he’s never been observed around them. He has been around kids of all ages and done well with kids who are gentle with him. Peanut is a sensitive fellow as this breed often is. Bichons are known to be loyal and true to their people. The hope is that Peanut will not have to go through another placement for his senior years; he needs a true forever home!

We are told that Peanut is crate trained and can manage going without a potty break for up to 5 hours. He’s happy to lounge around most of the day but also enjoys his walks. Peanut does well on leash but his vision isn’t what it used to be so he’ll need some time to learn a new walk route. His hearing also is not as sharp as it used to be-but that comes with age if we’re lucky enough to have a dog stay with us into their senior years. Peanut loves going for car rides and only barks when someone is at the door. He is going to make someone a great new friend!

Peanut is boarding at a vet clinic currently so he’d love to find a real home soon. He is waiting in Renton, WA.

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
