Ariz. Humane Society Pet of the Week -- Peanut

PHOENIX -- Peanut is exceptionally sweet and with his sensitive nose this bloodhound mix never misses a good smelling scent. His family wasn’t able to afford a pet anymore and regrettably had to bring him to the shelter. With a brisk outlook on life, he still remains happy-go-lucky despite being homeless.

At the age of one, he enjoys mingling with other canines at the dog park and participating in outdoor activities with his owner. He will happily play ball for hours in the yard and does so with the kind of enthusiasm found only in a retriever.

When his long legs won’t move another inch he will curl up on his doggie bed and snooze for the rest of the afternoon. His paws twitch while he dreams but it hard to know exactly what he is thinking about when he dives into doggie dream land.

He is great with older children and other social canines but a family introduction is required.

He is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. His adoption fee is $110. This adoption fee includes his neuter surgery, vaccines, a colorful leash and collar with an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam. For more information about this pet, please call 602-957-3113 and ask for animal ID number A363834 or log on to

Please note: This pet might have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter; however, the AHS has many more wonderful pets that also need loving homes. Please take a moment to meet some of the other homeless dogs, cats and other companion animals at the shelter! To see all our adoptable animals right now,
