Yancy and Peanut!!!

Meet Yancy (left in first picture) and Peanut (right).

These two boys are our new foster pups from the Orland Humane Society. Yancy had been at the shelter since September. He is a terrier mix, about 16 pounds, and kinda crazy. He had a broken leg when he was first found and brought to the shelter, but you wouldn't know it now! He runs and jumps like no other little dog I've seen.

Peanut came to the shelter later in 2010. He is a dachsund/pug mix. He's got a long body and a weiner dog snout, but big bulging Pug eyes. He is about 14 pounds and could use a little extra meat on his bones. He is very mellow and a total lap dog. The thing he loves the most: FOOD.

Don't be fooled by how close and cuddly the boys are in the pictures, the play fight as much as they can. Yancy is the instigator, but Peanut doesn't back down easy. They would probably both rather that the other wasn't here, but by fostering both we were able to give a large dog a pen to live in at the shelter. The shelter is as MAX capacity and cannot accept any more dogs :(

We've been going on nice long walks, but these boys wear each other out for the most part. Supposedly both were not potty-trained, but we haven't had an accident since the first day (Peanut hasn't had any!). They love walks, car rides, treats (dog food kibble) for going potty outside, and cuddling on the couch. Plus, they can both fit in Mia's big old crate--they sleep in there at night and while we are gone from the house.

So far, so good!

Pin It!
