Save-A-Pet Animal of the Week

Doc Fang, aka "Peanut," is a special dog who needs an equally special family.

Mom, look what I got...a puppy! That was me...and well, the family already had a couple of other dogs so they couldn't keep me.

I did spend some time in a foster home where they said I was great with cats and kids but somewhat bossy with other dogs, even with their big German Shepherd.

I then found a home with a family and they had me for two years. When they brought me back, they only had bad things to say about me. I never really got to go on walks and when I kept on leaving the back yard, they had an electric fence put up.

Most people would have noticed that my stress level got higher. So some dogs start barking and that's what I did. They then put a bark collar on me, now I was getting shocked whether I was inside the home or outside. I just didn't know anymore what to do or not to do anymore. How could I feel comfortable or trusting of anyone in this type of environment?

I need someone that fully understands positive training and who will be committed to ensuring that I get plenty of fun and positive outlets to fulfill my energy needs without getting shocked or scared.

A quiet home that will help me be the best I can be would be just perfect.

Doc Fang aka "Peanut," is about 3 years old, neutered, up-to-date on routine shots and rabies, heartworm negative and is on preventative meds and is micro-chipped.

He is hoping to be able to spend this holiday season with his new family and so are all his friends at www.saveapetil.org His adoption fee is 50 percent off and he gets to go home with a bunch of goodies too!
