My story

Meet Peter, the lovable, handsome 6-year-old boy ready to fill your life with pure bliss! This adorable furball is brimming with happiness and affection, and he can't wait to become your new best friend. Peter is in a local foster home, where he's been blossoming into the perfect companion for his forever family.

Peter is a bundle of joy, always sporting a friendly and playful demeanor. His curiosity knows no bounds, and he's particularly fond of squeaky toys - a surefire way to win his heart! With a wagging tail and a sparkle in his eyes, Peter will shower you with endless love and unforgettable moments.
He cherishes his cozy doggie bed, but what truly brings a smile to Peter's face is snuggling up close to you. Imagine the warmth and comfort of having this big marshmallow cuddled up by your side.

While Peter adores being around people of all ages, he's hoping to be the apple of your eye as the only dog in the household. He knows that with your undivided attention, the bond you'll share will be unbreakable.

Peter would be over the moon with a laid-back lifestyle, where he can enjoy life's simple pleasures alongside his loving human.
His foster home can't stop singing his praises, describing him as incredibly friendly and playful - a true ray of sunshine & perfect houseguest.
So, if you're ready for endless laughter, tail wags, and love that knows no bounds, consider adopting Peter into your family. He's patiently waiting for that special someone who will cherish him forever.

Give Peter the chance he deserves, and you'll experience the true meaning of unconditional love. Don't miss this opportunity to change both your lives forever!

More about this shelter

The Humane Society of Baltimore County, now known as the Baltimore Humane Society (BHS), was founded in 1927 by a pioneering and compassionate socialite named Elsie Seeger Barton (1886-1983).

In 1902, at age 16, Miss Seeger was stricken with rheumatic fever and was confined to her bed. During that time, her constant companions were the family’s beloved pets. It was at that time that Ms. Seeger resolved to devote her life to the care and humane treatment of companion and service animals. When she became well, she established a refuge for abused and homeless animals on her family’s estate, known as “Thistle Top” on Milford Road in Pikesville, MD, overlooking Gwynn’s Falls Dam. In 1908 she married Bolling Walker Barton, Jr., President of Barton, Duet & Koch Paper Company.
