Mr. Peabody

Shih Tzu
Pug, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Small
  • Male

Hi, my name is Mr. Peabody – Mr. P for short! I was rescued after being tied to a fence and abandoned. I am a very independent guy and I like to have things my own way, which means it would be better if my forever home provided me with structure and discipline rather than letting me rule the house. Even though you need to be strict with me, I won’t hold that against you! I will try my best to please you and will follow you around all day with a big smile on my face. I am really just looking for someone who will love me as much as I love them (although treats are one of the quickest ways to my heart)! I am a very playful boy and I especially love stuffed toys. I do have a lot of energy, but I am also a big love bug. I love to cuddle on you or next to you and give you tons of kisses. My foster parents have 2 dogs, one big, one small, who I get along with very well and love to play with. I am currently being crate trained at night and when my foster parents are not home. I am pretty much housebroken already - I can wait through the whole night until you wake up in the morning to be let out. My foster parents are going to be sad to see me go, but know that I need to find my forever family. Don’t I sound like the perfect match for you? I can’t wait to meet you! I am good with other dogs. I don’t have much experience with cats, but I would be willing to meet them to find out. As far as kids go, I find them a little bit overwhelming, so a home with small children would not be the best fit for me To meet Mr. Peabody please contact Alyssa at [email protected]. Name: Mr. Peabody Breed: Shih tzu/pug mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label) Age: 2-4 yrs old Weight: 13 pounds Reason for surrender to shelter: Mr. Peabody was abandoned. If you are interested in meeting Mr. Peabody, please email [email protected] for an application.
