Peanut finds a home thanks to dog-loving Observer readers

Ian Hughes 26th Jul, 2017   0

PEANUT has a new home thanks to caring Observer readers.The ten-week old puppy was found at the roadside in a cardboard box covered with wood to stop her escaping.
Terrier cross pup Peanut was discovered by a passer-by on the A446 in Berkswell after they heard crying coming from the box.
Despite her ordeal, Peanut was not injured or even visibly distressed.
Staff at Dogs Trust named her Peanut and contacted The Observer in the hope of finding her a loving home.
And within hours of us putting her story on our websites yesterday, more than 100 dog-loving readers had contacted the Honiley-based rehoming centre offering to care for Peanut.
She now has a new family, complete with children, and is looking forward to a new life.
Deputy Rehoming Centre Manager Emma Healey was delighted to have found Peanut a home, but said there were still many other abandoned dogs in need of a home.
She told The Observer: “We look after hundreds of abandoned and unwanted dogs every year but it still shocks us to think someone could abandon a puppy like Peanut.
“If someone needs to give up their dog for whatever reason we would always encourage them to come in to the centre to talk this through with our staff. By handing them over in this way, we are able to know a little more about the dog’s history, exactly how old they are or what sort of socialisation and training they have had. That all helps us to find them the best home.”
Call the centre on 0300 303 0292 to find out more about rehoming any of the centre’s other dogs.

Peanut has a new home after her story was featured on The Observer’s website.
