Facts about Peanut

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9699131


This laid back little guy is Peanut, also known at Nutty. He is an 8 year old black and tan Chihuahua mix, who weighs about 8 pounds. Peanut is very sweet, friendly and trusting. His perfect day would include hanging out with his people and getting belly rubs. 

He does not like larger dogs, but gets along with smaller ones. Peanut does not seem to like cats either. He keeps to himself most of the time and does not play with his foster siblings.  

Peanut comes neutered, micro chipped and up to date on vaccines. He walks great on a leash and rides well in the car. He has free reign of the house during the day and sleeps in a doggie bed at night. He probably would be happy to share a human bed too!

Peanut does not have many teeth, and usually eats softer food, however, he is known to grab some hard kibble and eat it. When that happens, he usually takes an extra piece back to a safe place and guards it. He does not like to share his food, but is now able to eat next to a calm dog.   

Because Peanut is so small, the ideal family will not have young children. Older, considerate kids or adults would be a perfect fit for this sweet boy.

About Tucson Cold Wet Noses

About Our Rescue Group...

Cold Wet Noses is a small group of individuals who take in the dogs that are going to be euthanized on any given day. We do this, when we can (when we have room for them), from Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).(we apologize we can only take in animals from the county shelter off of there rescue list) We bear all of the cost for spaying or neutering, micro-chipping, health care and shots . We're just a bunch of dog lovers who are trying to help as many furry souls as we can. The animals live with us so we know their personally and what would be the best fit for them. All of our Dogs and Cats our part of our family and we want that for them at your home. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT DOGS TO HOMES THAT WANT TO KEEP THEM OUTSIDE ALL THE TIME THEY ARE NOT YARD DOGS. We love each and every foster and we want you to do so so as well. If they arent a good match in your home we insist that they come back to us until their perfect match is found. We truly believe that there is a perfect pet for a perfect home! Thank you for adopting a shelter dog or cat from Tucson Cold Wet Noses.
