ADOPTION DATE 04-12-23 – his is Peanut he is a three month old male and weighs about 16 lbs. His mom is a shepherd mix and dad is a dachshund mix. Peanut has had all three of her vaccinations and is ready for her new home.

Peanut’s mom was dropped off at a home where they owned a little male Dachshund. The Dachshund had not been neutered and before they knew it, Momma dog was expecting pups. The family weren’t sure if their Dachshund was the dad, but when they were born with shorter legs than mom had and those little sweet sharper pointed faces, they knew who the daddy was!

The family has taken care of the pups since birth. The Momma dog has a great home now with another family member. Daddy dog got neutered and now they just asked RDVG to find these precious babies a great home too!

Peanut classified in the “sweet as can be” category. He is supper gentle with the foster girls and loves to run and play with them. He is devoted to his sister, Coco, but also adores another  little foster dog named Benny. He will be there for anyone who will play with him. He gets along great with other dogs and has been non-reactive around cats; he even try’s to play with the cats at his foster home, but, we all know that cats refuse to cooperate if it is not their idea.

Peanut’s best description is that he is the biggest marshmallow, very laid back and  is the kind of dog that will cuddle up and watch a movie, or just snuggle in his bed. He is the sweetest little short stack and being low to the ground makes it easy for him to flop over for belly rubs. He loves going on walks, car rides, and just spending his day with you.

You can’t help but smile when you look at Peanut, proudly carrying his long, muscular body on short legs, his elongated head held high with a bold, intelligent look in his eyes. He has almost a comical appearance. He will make a wonderful pet for some lucky family, hopefully with kids or other small playful dogs.

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
