Peanut & Woody (Applications Closed)

We affectionately call this pair “The Old Men” and they are firm favourites with our Shelter Volunteers. Peanut and Woody are older Jack Russell Terrier who recently came into our care together. They are both estimated to be around 10 years old and we would like them to find a retirement home together for their twilight years. Peanut is a slow walker owing to arthritis in his front legs and is quite happy to just amble around and is not able to walk for any long distance. He has just received some medical treatment to correct a prostate issue and have teeth removed. Woody, on the other hand, is quite happy to head off for walks and doesn’t seem to have any health issues. But as they seem so content together, we think they will be happier to remain together so a foster home rather than an adopted home will suffice. They will both remain for their lifetimes under the financial care of the KWWSPCA for all their future medical needs.

Both dogs are very friendly and quiet and are content to laze around for most of their days. They don’t mind being handled and don’t show signs of aggression. They really are a lovable pair that just need a comfortable and safe home.

Peanut and Woody are microchipped (972274001596812 and 972274001596813), neutered, vaccinated and have been treated with the usual preventative flea/worm treatments.
