Hi, my name is Peanut and as you can see I am a very handsome fellow! I am only 5 years old and weigh 17 lbs, which isn't very much at all. But you see my owners thought I was too big and didn't like me being protective of my humans so they dumped me at a high kill shelter. I have been sitting there for two long weeks because no one wants a standard size Yorkie or a fellow who is just plain misunderstood. Everyone wants a tiny little perfect fellow and even though I am not tiny, I will make someone a great companion. My foster mom has lots of dogs and I love them all. I also love the humans, even the kids. I am housetrained and at first I didn't like the crate but it’s fun now because my mom puts treats inside and I get to go in and eat the treats while she closes the door. See, I just need to be understood. I am a nervous to meet new dogs and it takes me just a little time to get used to them, because at my former home I was the only one. I am very scared at times but just need a little love and patience because my life has been turned upside down by the humans who I thought loved me. I am looking for a family who wants someone to love and hold and sit on the couch with them. I need someone who understands me though; like when my mom is holding me I don't like for my dad to come and try and pick me up. But if he calls me to come jump on his lap and sit with him, we have no problems. I just need a little patience and someone who is willing to understand me and work with me until we have our routine all figured out. I will make you the most wonderful and loyal companion ever.
