Peanut Butters Up His New Mom!
Angela Ancona walked into the ASPCA Adoption Center with her son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, looking for love. Almost immediately, she spotted Peanut, who was sound asleep. As Angela made her approach, Peanut lifted his ears—expertly reeling in his new family. “My son said to me, ‘Ma, this is our new dog!’” remembers Angela.
Our shelter staff showed Angela photos of what poor Peanut had been through. The ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement department had seized the pooch from his previous owners because he had a skin condition and was not given medical care—the little guy was almost bald when he first came to our shelter! “I knew he needed a better life,” she says. By that time, she’d already decided to bring Peanut home.
So what’s this lil’ ol’ rescue dog up to now? “Peanut has the run of the house,” Angela chuckles. He sleeps on her bed, and he loves to go on walks and run around on the patio. But Angela stresses that she is the one to be thankful, not Peanut. “This is my pleasure,” she beams.
