Sweet little Peanut was adopted from Salt Lake County Animal Services in October of 2018. Here's an update from his new family! Our staff loves to hear how adoption has changed lives of both pets and people. 

We adopted Peanut in October of 2018! We love him just as much as he loves us! He loves to play and is spoiled rotten like his other 4-legged sister. He now has a harness. He has so many toys that he enjoys playing with. He enjoys tug-a-war. He likes to run around the house chasing his big brother and sister! He thinks it's funny to drive his little 4-legged sister up the wall! He really is the best puppy! Loves to go for car rides loves to go for runs with his 2-legged sister! He loves his treats! Potty training is going pretty good! He loves to cuddle and sleep with me when he's tired out from playing or needs a nap. I could go on and on! He really is a great dog and we are so happy we found him!  A few weeks ago, I found out my older dog had an aggressive cancer and had to put her to sleep.

I knew I wanted another dog so I left my heart open and knew when the time was right, I would find another dog that I could feel an instant connection with. I thought a lot about shelter dogs, and we adopted a Chihuahua mix from the Humane Society of Utah and she has been an amazing dog. If I could I would adopt all the dogs and give them a forever home. I was sad to see so many dogs at the shelter. Long story short, I felt adoption was best for my family because so many dogs need a good home. The day I found Peanut I was at Salt Lake Animal Services to pay the registration on my other dog and I walked through the dogs and saw him. Right away I felt so much love and knew he was going to be my dog and that's what happened. Ever since that day he has brought so much more happiness into our lives!
