Hi, my name is Peanut. I am an 8-month old Hound Mix. I weigh about 40 pounds right now, but am hoping I grow into my long legs. I still act like I weigh 10 pounds. My foster family thinks I’m a little goofy when I get running too fast and slide sideways on the hardwood floors like a baby giraffe on an ice pond.

Speaking of ponds, I keep having to be told to stay out of the pond in the back yard, but I just love water and it’s right there! I absolutely love playing with other dogs, kids and whoever else can keep up. I don’t mind the cats, even though I have a feeling they don’t like dogs very much.

I walk great on a leash and am ready to go on long walks because being a hound, I was born to sniff around. Even though I like having everyone at home with me, I do fine being in a crate while the others go to work or school. I am still working on being housebroken, but am a very good listener and really smart, so I know it can’t be too difficult for me.

I am an active, playful pup, but I do love to settle in for the night and snuggle. I am neutered and up to date on all my shots, so let me know if you want to meet and possibly add me to your family. I would be the happiest dog in the world!!

Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details.

Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.

Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family.

About Safe Haven Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small 501 C3 nonprofit rescue located in Elburn, Illinois. In 2014, Safe Haven Dog Rescue became its own non-profit. We are licensed by the Illinois Agriculture Department.
The majority of our dogs and puppies are pulled from Kill Pounds and Shelters in KY, TN, AL and Illinois. When a foster home is available we will also accept owner relinquishment’s due to illness or foreclosure. We work hard to find local rescue groups within these states to pull the dogs into their program while we coordinate transportation and placement into foster homes.
Please take a few moments to read the stories about the dogs and puppies we have available for adoption. We disclose everything we know about the dogs, sometimes we know a lot often we know only that they were strays, thrown away on the side of the road, in the woods, or found in abandoned houses. While we don’t always know their past we are certain that their future is much brighter.
We hope that you and your family are part of the future…..
