PEGGY- Vet Pet Pick!



SHEPARD/BOXER MIX- Sleek tan jacket, short perky ears, greying around the muzzle, huge smile!
ADULT FEMALE- Est DOB: March 2009
ARRIVED: March 19, 2015
HISTORY: Peggy was pulled from a high kill shelter when her time was “up.”

When we first met Peggy at the high kill shelter where animal control had dumped her, she had THE saddest look on her face. This middle aged lady was confused and wondered what she had done wrong to wind up in danger and in need of a new pet job. Today, Peggy is safe and we love her to pieces. Talk about a Pretty Woman now! She has added some much needed pounds (perhaps a few too many) and she is smiling. She wiggles with great excitement as folks select her for walks and she rolls on her back with great delight (something she could NOT do in her cement kennel at the shelter). The pond on our property is a source of wondrous joy for her as she wades out into it and then slowly sinks down looking like an alligator with only the top of her head and back visible! New life has been breathed into this friendly, bubbly lady!

A Word from Peggy

“Hi There! Do you want to take me for a walk? I won’t bark at you like everyone else…I am a very polite pup. I see people walk up and down this road all day, and I have a smile for each of them! When I went for a sleepover, I often got comfy on their couch. They would love to adopt me, but are away too much for travel to be a good permanent home. They sure were kind to me though!”

What Peggy Needs in Her Home

Peggy can be a bit picky about dogs, and cats might be too enticing for her to ignore! A family with older kids or a couple simply needing to fill a pet void, would be a perfect match for her. She has plenty of practice at being an indoor dog, and will happily sleep at your feet while you are watching television (Maybe she might like to sleep beside you!) Peggy has never met a stranger so come on by soon, find your new friend and tell her, “You’re coming home with me!”

Foster Update January 2018: Miss Peggy is acing her Extreme Sleepover! Sue, a CFC volunteer, jumped at the chance to take Peggy into her home during the cold weather. Sue says, “She’s doing wonderfully, and we are totally amazed at how well Peggy has adjusted! The only time she barked was when she saw her reflection in our living room windows. Peppy appears to be house trained, with only 1 small accident in 6 days and has done very well walking around the neighborhood, more curious about other dogs than anything else. She’s very, very loving – giving as many kisses as we will accept. Peggy is a very smart girl and would take to training very quickly. If this were the right time in our lives for a dog, this would surely be a lifelong sleepover instead of just an extreme sleepover as my husband and I have both fallen in love with this sweet girl.”

Volunteer Update April 2018: Peggy knows the sound of Volunteer Cin’s car when it comes down our driveway. She will start running in circles in her pen and bark as if saying,” I’m ready for a car ride. Take me! Take me!” If you are in the hunt for a traveling car buddy, Peggy is YOUR GIRL! Cin takes Peggy for “road trips” on a regular basis and they often wind up walking by one of our local rivers. They have SUCH fun!
