BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Peanut is a 3 month old male Dachshund mix.  He has had a rough start to life. Peanut was born with a defected penis and was scheduled to be put to sleep in a southern high kill shelter because of it. Luckily, Home for Good Dog Rescue saved Peanut and arranged for the surgery to fix his condition.

Peanut is now fine and available for adoption. He is good with dogs and kids. Peanut’s foster mom calls him Prancing Peanut because he has a hop in his step when he walks.  He is a very playful and happy dog. Peanut would make a great addition to any home!  He is neutered and up to date with his shots.
