Peanut's Info...

Peanut's Story...
Hi, I'm Peanut. I'm a 1 year old Ewok. That's what the folks around here call cute, fluffy dogs when they can't figure out what breed we are! I have no clue what I'm mixed with - I'm low to the ground like a corgi or doxie, have a fancy plume tail like a longhaired chihuahua or papillon, the coloring of a shepherd or -- well, you get the idea, I'm a totally mixed-up little dog. All I know is, everyone who meets me can't stop talking about how CUTE I am! I'm really soft, and bouncy when I walk (great tail, if I say so myself!). I'm approximately 2 years old and weigh only 13 lbs.

I'm a sweet and friendly boy, always up for a belly rub. I'm curious, interested in my environment, and like to explore. Still need training for the basics and some work on my housebreaking, but I was just neutered so that should help a lot! I'm just waiting for you to come and meet me, because once you do, I know you will not be able to resist taking me home!

You can meet me at my current foster home: Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd., during normal store hours (847-251-6750)

Peanut's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, flea preventative, DHPP (distemper-parvo combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, microchip and neutering.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peanut, a Mt. Prospect Papillon/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon/Chihuahua for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Papillon/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mt. Prospect breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
