Peanut is a handsome little dog but spent the first few days in a corner just trembling with fear. He’s come out of his shell and is showing interest in the volunteer that has been visiting. He and his kennel mates survived a devastating car accident that left them without their owner and all initially quite traumatized, ending up here in the shelter. But they are doing better and behaving more friendly as evident by seeking some human interaction now! peanut has actually stopped trembling and greeted the volunteer with his tail wagging as you’ll see when you come visit him!Interested in meeting me? Please visit our adoption center located at 12425 Monterey Rd in San Martin anytime during open hours (12-6pm weekdays, 12-5 pm weekends).
