Peanut - Kennel #18
Peanut is a 3 1/2 year old Pit Bull Terrier male. This guy is a laid back dog that would love a quiet home to settle into. He knows his sit command and would love to show you for himself. He also likes to be close and would make a wonderful snuggle bug for these cold evenings coming up. He is also a champ at our playgroups. Don't miss out on me... more
