We got peanut in late February. We were told that she was already 5 years old and was house broken. She has completed (i think) petsmarts puppy training class. She will sit and stay and even leave a treat until you tell her it is okay to get it. The previous owner said she hurt one of her back knees but they and the vet decided to just let it be. She will go to the door when she needs to go out but she seems to have a bladder control issue because when she has been out for awhile and comes in and lays on the tile floor she leaks and leaves a little puddle behind. She loves to chase lizards in the back yard and to dig. However she has never tried to dig out of the backyard. We were told she loves to swim however she seems to be deathly afraid of getting in the pool . She does love to play tug of war and can get a little aggressive trying to win and it scares my kids so they don't want to play with her. she does bark. Mostly when she wants your attention and wants you to play with her. She also barks if she sees another animal outside. I'm trying to tell you all of the truth. The good and the bad because the previous owner was not completely honest with us.
Why are we trying to find her a new home? Well the main reason is to we recently learned that some of the issues my 3 year old is having is due to allergies with the dog. The other reason is that my other 2 kids begged for a dog and promises to help take care of her and they did for the first two weeks and now i am the only one that takes care of her or plays with her and i would love to see her go to home with someone that has more time to give her.
