Peggy came to HART when she was 9 days as an orphan with a deformed leg, her owners were unable to care for her.  She thrived and when she was strong and old enough, her deformed leg was amputated. She has now completed her rehab and is eager to join a loving family of her own. 

Peggy has been raised with many other dogs, cats and met as many people as possible (given the Covid restrictions). She's quite a friendly, and feisty pup! She firmly believes that all pant legs, socks and blankets require tugging and every dog she meets needs to first be barked at, then played with. She may only have 3 legs but she doesn't let it slow her down at all. She wrestles, runs, plays and gets into as much mischief as any other 3 month old hooligan puppy. Be prepared to keep her well stocked in chew toys because she can (and does) chew anything and everything for hours every day. Her sharp little razor teeth are shark-like!

She is a Dutch Shepherd/German Shepherd mix. If you know anything about Shepherds, you know they are smart as whips and require a fair amount of exercise, for both their bodies and minds. Peggy is no exception. Her new family will need to be committed to ongoing training, socialization and lots of exercise. Her vet has stressed to us that it will be important for Peggy's new family to keep her lean and fit so as to reduce the strain on her remaining front leg. Given Peg's personality and the characteristics of her breed, she is not suited to children under the age of 12.

Too young to be spayed, Peggy will be adopted with a strict non-breeding contract requiring she be spayed by the age of 1 year. She is up to date with vaccines, microchipped and besides the missing leg, she's as healthy as they come.
