Peanut is sterilised, vaccinated & dewormed.  She is housetrained & has had obedience training.  She is a beautiful dog with lovely soft fur who loves to be caressed. She would like to be at her owner’s side 24/7, and can’t get enough love. Sadly her current family is not able to give her the attention that she wants – she would ideally suit a home with either a retired couple or a work from home situation with very few visitors.  Her current home runs a paedeatrics practice from home & Peanut can’t be in the consulting rooms which causes her stress as she just wants to be with her person.   We got her from the Johannesburg Anti-Cruelty League in January 2015, but we don’t know where she was before that. She is a good watch dog as she looks terrifying while she hurtles to greet anybody who comes to the property, but I doubt she would actually attack. She was seen by a behaviourist who says she is very anxious: therefore she is snappy in unfamiliar situations e.g. big gatherings at the house. But otherwise she has never shown aggression to the people in the house.
