We rescued Peaches from Minneapolis Animal Control in August of 2015. Our Volunteers are amazed that she wasn’t Adopted years ago, but she has adopted them as her family until she finds her Foster or Forever Home. Peaches is a beautiful, playful 5 year old boxer mix and a total lover! Eager to please with adults and kids. During warm weather, Peaches loves splashing about in a doggie pool. Year ’round, her favorite game is “throw the ball.” She chases it down at warp speed and proudly brings it back for the next toss with a big smile on her face.
Peaches walks well on leash, but she has a strong prey drive, so she could be too much for a small child to handle when she sees a squirrel or bunny. She also loves people so much that she can jump up on them and could knock a young child down in her excitement. This is an ongoing training issue, and we can help with that when you get her home. Peaches is a model citizen in that car though, and her favorite trip is a ride to the Dairy Queen for a pup cone!
You probably shouldn’t have cats, and if you have other dogs at home, we should do a meet and greet to make sure they’ll be friends. Come in, meet Peaches, and take her for a walk. We think that, like our volunteers, you’ll be amazed that she didn’t find a Foster or Forever Home ages ago – and you’ll want to change that.
