Meet PEACH (A15159016)
Peach says: Firstly, I’ve been at the ACCT shelter for a few weeks now. Unlike a lot of dogs there I actually had a family who loved me, trained me, got me fixed and vet care, but then they lost their home and there was no where else for me to go. I miss them a lot but I’m hopeful that the next phase of my life will be even better than my first! I’m really polite, though- I was taught that it isn’t nice to jump or mouth on new friends so I don’t do any of those things, and instead I just wiggle and wiggle and wiggle until you invite me into your lap or toss me a tennis ball. I LOVE tennis balls and will play with them all by myself even, tossing them into the air and having all kinds of fun. I already know “sit” and am working on learning some more commands. I am food-motivated and take treats very nicely so it shouldn’t be too hard for me to learn more, and I really want to learn! I also enjoy meeting new doggie friends too and would love a canine sibling to romp around with! I also lived with small children and was crate trained in my old home so I should be a breeze with housebreaking and would love to meet your children too! I’m pretty sure that cats aren’t worth chasing and I could probably live with them but if you have some kitties in your home we can look more into that.
