Story
Peanut Butter was a recent transfer to TAPS from Peoria County Animal Control where he was surrendered, reason unknown. The paperwork reports that he would do well with kids, dogs and cats. Based on his shelter behavior, we would not recommend toddlers. Peanut Butter is uncomfortable in new situations, as well as being on a leash, and will snap in fear. Any adopter will need to be patient as he transitions to his forever home.Peanut Butter is currently in a foster home. He does great with the other dogs large and small. He is settling in and he will roll over for belly rubs and has only had one potty accident in the home. He not a fan of going outside and has to be coaxed to do so and sometimes will cry when outside other times will run and sort of pace around. He likes to sleep next to his human.

Story
Monty is currently enjoying his time in a foster home! Monty's foster mom says:Monty is a grumpy old man, but with a lot of love still to give. He gives sweet little kisses but grumbles when I kiss him. He loves burrowing under blankets. He has been a picky eater and since he was so skinny, I'm spoiling him with hamburger and chicken. Part of that may have been his dental issues with abscessed teeth which are now resolved. He is a screamer when you try to do things he doesn't like - putting on his collar or his sweater. Makes me think he has been abused before and screams when he is scared. As he gets more secure in feeling safe, I hope that resolves. He comes when called inside and outside. He is mostly potty trained but has marked since he wasn't neutered. He will have accidents if not taken out every couple hours. Puppy pads help during the day.He deserves someone to show him love for the rest of his days. You wont regret the time you have with him.

Story
Uncle Bud entered the shelter system when his elderly owner passed away. He is reported to be dog and cat friendly and per the surrender form was using potty pads but while staying with a family member and with another dog, he was marking in the home. He will be neutered prior to adoption so in time, those tendencies may decrease, but also, as he settles into his new home, those tendencies will decrease as well but any adopter should be patient through potty training and the marking transition. The surrender paperwork indicated that he is friendly with everyone, and despite being a bit nervous, we don't have concerns but his vet records reports that he does have a bite record on file with our local animal control. Though we don't know the circumstances, it was from 3 years ago when a caretaker entered the home and brought their child along. Based on this information, we would suggest no toddlers and keeping Uncle Bud contained when visitors enter the home.
