Peet is a tricolor hound with the characteristic short fur. He has beautiful, soft floppy ears and his tail curls up.
Peet is such a fun, happy, enthusiastic dog! He entertains himself (and us!) by throwing his toys and balls in the air and then chasing them. At this point, Peet is generally shy and wary of adults at first--but once he trusts you, he wants to be right next to you. But oh how Peet loves children! He met two children (8 and 10 years old), and went right up to them, over the moon with delight! You would never know about his wariness with adults. So we are looking for a loving family with older children. Peet needs a fence so he can romp to his heart's content as well as another confident dog in the home to learn from and pal around with. He loves sticks and loves playing tug (see the video) and chasing other dogs. He likes to wrestle with me.
Peet continually delights us with his antics: My husband carries his handkerchief in his back pocket, and one day Peet gently pulled it out of the pocket. Now that is his. He likes to take his blankets outside through the doggie door! Peet will make a wonderful companion!
Peet is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
Peet was found as a stray in a rural community.
