Facts about Peanut Buddy

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Peanut Buddy was a true rescue and has a compelling back story. My brother-in-law heard a frustrated coworker talking about a lady's chihuahua having an untreated broken leg. Turns out, Peanut Buddy spent his time tied to the lady's stove and she tripped over him one day causing her to step on and break his leg. We were able to persuade her to relinquish him to rescue. His injured leg was casted and has since healed just fine. Peanut Buddy is about 6 years old and weighs 6 1/2 pounds. He loves, loves, loves toys and gets along well in his foster home until dinner is served. Yes, he has food aggression issues so either needs to be an only dog or needs to be fed in solitude. As for his house manners, he is awesome on the wee wee pads and going outside but can't seem to negotiate the stairs so he is just carried up and down. Peanut Buddy is neutered, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm/flea preventative, is microchipped and has had a dental cleaning. His adoption fee is $250 with all vet work done.

About River City Chihuahua Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

In August, 2006, we branched off from a long association with Chihuahua Rescue and Transport in order to have a more local focus. You may have noticed that we have also branched off from rescuing only chihuahuas. As we were doing shelter pulls, it became harder and harder to pull chihuahuas for rescue and leave behind other small breed dogs that we knew were highly adoptable. So we started taking them also. Chihuahuas are first in our hearts but we have been very successful in finding wonderful homes for doxies, miniature pinschers and various terriers. If we have the means, the desire and the drive to rescue them as well, how could we not? I guess we should start calling ourselves River City Canine Rescue.
