Peanut Butter showed up at a rescuer’s home with his sister on April 9, 2022. We think he knew they would help hime! His rescuer said said: After watching our security cameras, we believe they were dumped just down the road and found their way to our home. My boyfriend was working outside and just using his peripheral vision, thought that our dog had come up and sat beside him, as she often did. When he looked directly at who he thought to be our dog, he was surprised to see two puppies just calmly watching him.
Peanut Butter is a great, typical puppy! He is doing well with crate training and house training. He needs somebody who is experienced with young dogs and their typical puppy behavior, very patient and understanding. Someone who has time to work with him on his leash skills and his house manners would be ideal.
He gets along with other dogs with proper introductions. He has been around cats and does well with them. Peanut Butter has also been around kids and does great with them!
His foster mom also says: Everyday I learn something new about this incredible boy! He is a cuddle bug! He follows me everywhere and today he has decided I need some extra special cuddling. He could possibly be a mind reader. I needed motivation to work so he is laying right beside me while I work. You know that feeling of not wanting to move because your dog is laying on your lap but in this case he is curled up beside me.
PB is such a calm, smart puppy. He chews on the toys and bones that I have put out for him. If he starts to chew on the dog bed, I quickly tell him no and redirect him to what he can chew on. He does what you tell him to do. So far, he has had zero accidents inside. He spends the night in a crate and the day time loose in the house, with supervision. He is a perfect gentleman and he is so extremely calm. What an amazing puppy. When we are outside, he stays close by. We are experiencing above-average temperatures so most of our days are spent inside. When we are outside he is active and playful. When we are inside he is calm and keeps himself occupied with bones and toys.
PB would do great as a member of a pack or as the only dog as long as his person or family is home with him during the day. He gets along with dogs of any size and cats too. He has been around horses too, but safely stays on the other side of the fence.
PB will fit into a family setting easily with or without children. He is going to a very easy dog for whoever gets him.
PB is truly an all around great puppy. He needs a forever family to help him grow into a great dog!

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
