CA
CA Peanut Peanut Peanut
Peanut: 4-month-old chocolate and rust male, soon to be neutered, docked tail and natural ears. 12", 8 lbs. Fully vetted. Rescued from shelter.
Meet Peanut - Peanut is a young, fun, bright little guy. He is drop dead gorgeous, full of life and he has a spectacular min pin prance. We are looking for a very special home for this very special boy.
Peanut was dumped in a park when he was 8 weeks old, weighing only 4 pounds. He was very disoriented and had awful diarrhea. He was diagnosed with giardia and distemper. Peanut is a fighter and made it through. Sadly, though, the distemper left Peanut blind. Most distemper survivors have residual neurological issues. Peanut gets what we call the "no see ums". He will jerk his head back as if something flew close and suddenly at his face. It is infrequent and seems to be when he wakes up from naps. Most times we can hold him and comfort him through and they resolve quickly.
In foster care he started feeling better, but the reality of his new existence resulted in a couple weeks of intense fear. Peanut has learned to trust us and his environment. He knows several verbal cues and is a quick and eager student. He enjoys being cuddled and loves his "scritches" and "pets". He has begun to trust enough for belly "rubs" especially if they are given in a sunny spot. We are keeping a list of his verbal cues as this helps him know what to expect when we are handling, feeding and doing activities.
Peanut is getting used to a harness and leash. We have been getting him out in a baby sling to get used to different sounds and smells. He loves these walks and spends part of his outing cuddled and asleep. He rides well in the car but sometimes gets car sick on longer rides. This is improving as he gets more exposure. He loves being outside on sunny days, listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, sniffing the breezes, and soaking up the sun. He prances around our small patch of lawn executing little goat leaps of joy. Peanut has some favorite toys he likes to pounce on and shake, he also will play a gentle game of tug. He will nestle into his snuggle sack and fall asleep in our arms.
He sleeps quietly and happily in an "x" pen overnight. We also have a play pen if we need him to nap during the day or just a secure place for him. He has his toys and chewie to keep him occupied.
Until Peanut can execute stairs, which we are working on, he has not yet been completely potty trained. We take him out when he first wakes up and regularly during the day. He is very good about wearing a belly band and about standing still for "pants" when we need to change his "pants". Peanut has been fine around other small dogs and does not seem to have much reaction to them. He has not been around large dogs or a multi-dog environment.
No apartments for Peanut, he needs to have a yard for serious goat leaps and sunning. No young children as he is still learning that mouth play is not ok. Also, if he gets fearful, he gets nippy. He is easy for an adult to handle and control him, but it might be scary and unsafe for a child.
Peanut is an adorable loving little min pin, and will need an experienced home with lots of loving patience while he acclimates to a new household. Blind dogs compensate for their loss of sight with heightened sense of touch, smell, and hearing. He can live a full perfectly normal life with someone that is ready to commit to teaching him how to navigate in a sightless world. His forever home will need to continue with his established verbal cues while adding new ones.
Are you the perfect home for dear Peanut? Available around second week of February after neuter appointment.
Note: Peanut is located in San Mateo County, CA and we will not fly this boy.

CA Felix Felix Felix
Felix: 2-year-old, black and tan male, natural ears and tail, 9 lbs. and 10" tall. Shots up to date, neutered, found as a stray.
"Hello World, I'm Felix.
I'm a 9 lb, 2-year-old, black and tan little Min Pin mix fella.
I don't remember what happened to me, but one day an animal control officer found me laying unconscious with blood coming out of my nose. That kind officer picked me up and took me to the animal shelter. I never made it outside to the scary kennels with all the other dogs because I was in pretty bad shape. I mean, do you know the term "getting your bell rung"? Well, I'm here to tell you, my bell got rung and then some!
I was lucky because the shelter people were able to get IMPS to come and get me and take me to a vet to see if I could be helped. I don't remember any of this, but my IMPS foster mom told me she picked me up and took me to a really nice lady vet who looked me over and told my foster mom what to do for me. I was throwing up pretty bad so I got shots to help me for several days and my foster mom had to hand feed me every two hours cause I couldn't eat for myself. If I got too much food all at once I got sick even with those shots. It was 4 whole days my foster mom had to do this for me. Each day I got a little bit stronger until on the 5th day I could eat for myself.
The nice lady vet said I will be OK, but apparently, I got hit on the back of my head pretty hard and it damaged my right eye. My eye is OK, but I can't see out of it now. I hope it will get better with time, but in the meantime, I don't let it get me down. I get around good and I don't let it keep me from going outside with my doggy siblings and exploring the yard.
My foster mom says I'm the sweetest, cutest little guy, without a single sign of being aggressive, and she loves me but not as much as I love her! I follow her everywhere. It took me over a week to figure out that I have a voice and that I can bark if my foster mom ignores me too much. It's pretty bad when a fella loses his voice, but I sure did.
At first, I forgot that I needed to go outside to do my business, but as soon as the world stopped spinning and my memory about things started coming back, I remembered, and I hardly ever have accidents anymore. My mom won't let me use the doggy door because I need to hit it with my head, but as soon as she lets me outside, I go take care of things…
I thought my life was looking up at last but then my foster mom took me to see that nice vet lady again and next thing I knew I was waking up again, not remembering what happened to me, except I figured out pretty quick that I was missing some of my body parts. I think I heard my mom say I got neutered and a microchip in me so now when I heal up, I'll be ready to get my very own, loving, forever family.
I'm sure going to miss my foster mom, and I know she's going to miss me, but I'm also looking forward to my own family who pay attention to me, let me live in the house and be a part of the family. I'd like a family that will take me with them everywhere and take really good care of me and protect me. If you have a doggy friend for me, all the better as long as they don't play too rough with me for a while yet.
If you think you could love me forever, and take really good care of me, would you please fill out the adoption application so you can get approved and we can meet?
I just can't wait to meet you and for us to begin our lives together.

Tail wags and kisses,
Felix."
