It’s me Peaches. The people here say I am a Lab/Doberman mix. Not sure if they are right. I don’t remember my momma and never met my dad. I think I am 2 years old. Maybe 3. No one every celebrated my birthday, so I am not sure. I grew to be a sleek 54 pounds, but that was after I was rescued from the streets of Alabama and had some regular meals. I was pretty thin when they found me. I sometimes have moments when I forget that food is plentiful now and get a little grumpy when other dogs get too close to my food. It happens less often and I think eventually I will forget what it felt like to be so hungry.
I wish I was like some of my friends here who seem to find it so easy to love and kiss and play with the humans. I seem to have to take a bit longer to make sure they are the nice ones and not the naughty ones. Once I decide they are nice, I can trust them completely. I haven’t met any of the naughty ones here at Helping Hounds. I do so enjoy the play time with my dog friends though. I am faster than all of them and when I get a toy, there is no way they can catch me to take it away. I bet I could pull your sleigh faster than any reindeer can.
So here is my list of wishes for my new home, Santa. I hope the people I live with are kind and like to play. I would love one who likes to run as much as I do, but I would be happy with some space to stretch my legs from time to time. The very young children make me a little nervous – I am not sure what you are supposed to do with them. They make strange noises and walk funny. I think I prefer the grown ups, or kids that are almost grown ups. I do not like cats. Please don’t give me one of those, but another dog would be OK but not a deal breaker.
I hope you know someone who wants me Santa. It is so hard being alone.
