Hi, my name is Peanut. Sometimes my foster mom calls me Mister Butter. Get it? Peanut..butter! Ha! I LOVE that stuff - it tastes great! My foster mom gives me peanut butter sometimes. She's doing a good job caring for me and my poor dear brother, Pinto. You know, he was almost killed a few months ago. One of those big trucks swerved and hit him on purpose. There were a couple of humans that saw it happen and got this lady to come and help. One of the humans called her a foster mom. When she drove away with Pinto in the car that day, I thought I would never see him again. It broke my heart. My brother, my only family. The foster mom came back again and again after that happened and one day she took me with her, to her home. At first I was freaked out, then I saw him - Pinto!
It's been an amazing couple of months. I got a surgery that fixed me and some shots I needed. My foster mom made me a house, just for me - right next to Pinto's. I've learned to walk on those leash things, since we can't use the backyard. I really like doing that - leash walking. Our foster mom takes us outside on leashes for potty breaks or just to roam and enjoy the neighborhood. She says the leashes keep us safe and lets her follow the rules - plus they sure make Pinto feel better. My bro freaks and runs close to our foster mom every time a big truck goes by. Guess I would to, if it had been me that day. She says I'm the lucky dog. I'm OK with that. She always gives me a pat on the head or an ear scratch when she says that. It's nice - I like it. I decided it's a good thing to be the lucky dog. I figured out how to get her to rub on me anytime - I just walk over and place my paw on her gently...she always likes that, but makes her smile at me. She says it's my 'Pere paw. I used to think that was a bad thing, but CoCo, one of the other foster dogs here at the foster house explained smiling to me. That's how you humans express happiness. CoCo does the smile thing really good - it's kinda creepy even! Not sure why you humans don't just wiggle your bottoms...you know, since you don't have tails.
Anyway, I'm looking for my Forever Family. And our foster mom wants them to have room for both of us - me and Pinto. I already know you are gonna be hard to find. When our first mom died, the dad tried for a long time to find us a new family that would take both of us. They lost their home and we had nowhere to go. The backyard he found for us, with the wheelchair man, was ok for a while. The dad came by and checked on us, fed us. Gave us some of his time. But it wasn't enough. We started to break the fence and roam a bit. We never really got in trouble. I used to follow the wheelchair man to the store and back. It was kind of my job, I guess. Pinto worried about him. So we worked it out for me to follow the wheelchair man and Pinto would stay behind and just hang out in his yard. I'll never know why he was down by the street that day. But that's the past - my foster mom says we should look toward the future. I like her - she's a good human. And she loves me. I like being loved - even better that being lucky. I hope my forever family will love me and Pinto, both. And I hope they have kids. I really like kids. I think they would make our forever family really feel like home.
from Peanut's foster mom: Peanut is one of two Foxhound brothers who joined AAT back in the Summer. Peanut is a friendly Alpha dog, he likes most humans, especially nice kids and he enjoys the company of other friendly dogs. He is house/crate and leash trained. He can not live with cats, too much like squirrels for a hunting dog. Peanut would be a great walking partner for the family that enjoys daily neighborhood walks. He might also be a good jogging partner - but remember.... he's a 'hound! Please go to http://www.animalalliesoftexas.org/adoption-application/ and fill out an application today!

Rescue Group Info...
Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."
We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org for specific locations and times.
