UPDATE 3/11/2016 from her foster mom:
Peaches is a 5 1/2 year old Pug/Heeler Mix, as best as I can guess. She came to the group when her current owner became too old and sick to care for her anymore.
When she first arrived in our home, she was a little hesitant to come out of her shell. But with 3 other dogs and 2 kids in the house, there was no time to be shy. Within days, she was chasing squirrels with my dachshund mix and wrestling in the living room floor with my Aussie.
My 5 year old daughter and Peaches have grown quite close over the past few few months. My daughter tells Peaches she is the most beautiful dog she has ever seen.
My favorite thing I've come to know about Peaches is what a farm dog she turned out to be. We go to our family farm on weekends to take care of the cows and Peaches has fit right into that lifestyle. She jumps in the Polaris to go feed cows and has no fear or curiosity when she gets there.
She is laid back, calm, and collected. She's even gone nose to nose with a cow and just sniffed and got back in her ride.
Now, of course she still sleeps inside, un-crated, usually in her bed or someone else's. She has never had an accident in the house and always minds her manners with friends and neighbor's come over to visit. She is quite possibly the easiest foster we have had.
