peanut

Hi, Peanut! Peanut is a 3-5-year-old Chihuahua mix who was surrendered to the Scituate Animal Shelter along with his brother Gizzy. He is shy at first but once he gets to know you, Peanut is quite playful. He would love to live with another dog since he is used to canine companionship. Peanut will go on pee pads but will go outside if you get him on a regular schedule. He can live with kids 10 and over and he even likes cats! 

To meet Peanut, you can send the shelter an email: info@scituateanimalshelter.org, call 781.544.4533, or visit during the shelter’s open hours Tuesday and Wednesday, 12 PM – 6 PM, Thursday 3 PM – 7 PM and Saturday 10 AM – 5 PM.

Oscar and Kasi
These cute little boys, Oscar (on the black and white blanket) and Kasi, are quite the bonded fellows. They are currently residing at the Quincy Animal Shelter. Oscar is the big brother and Kasi follows his lead like most younger brothers. They like to play, go for walks, and cuddle with both their humans and together. They have never been around young children so they would like a family with older kids. The are five years old and are Maltese Yorkie mixes. If you’re looking for two sweet, lovable boys, come to the shelter during adoption hours or email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org. Adoption hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Benedict

Say hello to Benedict! Benedict is 5 years old and is part Beagle, part Basset Hound. He is sweet and affectionate but he has that nose that makes him want to follow a scent even if it means escaping, so he needs a good fenced in yard or a leash! Benedict has been at the Scituate Animal Shelter for a long, long time and it’s time to find him with a new home. 

Benedict is great with other dogs, but not with cats. He is house trained with only the occasional accident and knows “sit.” 

The folks at the Scituate Animal Shelter have been working on his leash manners. Benedtic used to pull so strongly that it was like water skiing—but he has gotten so much better and is very responsive to training.  He also likes to fetch certain toys too.

Unfortunately Benedict has had some trauma around handling in the past, so he is sensitive to having his paws touched and would need a family that could respect his boundaries — older kids and up would be fine.

It’s time for Benedict to find his forever home! Please contact the Scituate Animal Shelter to learn about meeting Benedict. The shelter hours are Tuesday and Wednesday,  12 – 6, Thursday, 3 – 7 and Saturday 10 – 5.
