CHIHUAHUA X FOX TERRIER
11 MONTHS OLD
Peanut captured all out hearts back on the 12th June 2020 when she came into care of Townsville Foster and Rehoming Animals. Peanut has had a long journey in care having had five surgeries in her short little life to try to repair her cleft palate (a hole in the roof of her mouth in the hard and soft section). Having a cleft palate has not stopped this little girl once. She eats a normal diet including biscuits, rice, pasta, mince and loves to chew on bones. Peanut is an energetic pocket rocket. She is very social and loves human companionship but most of all she loves the company and playfulness of her fur friends. Peanut whilst in care has shared a home with many animals including dogs of all sizes and cats. Peanut however loves to chase birds, but is not aggressive or threatening to the chickens, so a home that does not have house birds would be ideal. Peanut loves playing with squeaky toys and loves playing rope pull games with other dogs.
Peanut is house trained and sleeps inside in the bedroom and plays outside during the day. Peanut is also crate trained and this is always set up in the lounge room as she does during the day like to rest into her crate. Peanut has a long life to live, and would be best suited to a family that already has a dog of any size that is playful and active. Peanut has had all her veterinarian care attended to by Dr Chris at King’s Rd vets I which she gets so excited when she goes to visit. Peanut does not require any further surgery, just yearly routine check up with Chris for her annual vaccinations and routine health check. Her favourite food is roast chicken and loves her puppy milk.
Peanut is desexed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, vet checked, flea and tick treated. To adopt you will need photo ID, proof of residence, as in a current rates notice or a rental agreement showing approval to have animals, as well as vaccination and desexing records for any current pets you may already own.
