Meet Peter

Hi there!  I’m Peter,  a gentle, affectionate tri-pawed hound, with an unwavering determination that sets me apart. 

For eight long months, I roamed as a stray, relying on my instincts and resilience to survive.  During that time, I encountered a trap that caught my foot, resulting in the loss of most of it. Despite this setback, I refused to let it define me. I am a dog filled with determination and strength, always ready to overcome any obstacle that comes my way.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to take walks with one of my furry foster siblings, covering a good half mile each time we’re out, sniffing and exploring everything in sight!  On the leash, I can be a bit strong, but I’m diligently undergoing loose leash training, and I must say, I’m making great progress!  I am eager to learn and quite the intelligent pup and look forward to continued training with my forever family.

The good news is, I’m already fully house trained, quiet, and exceptionally well-mannered.  Barking is not something I indulge in frequently – unless there is a fox or deer involved.  I’m incredibly gentle and sweet-natured, and cuddling up with my favorite humans is one of the greatest joys in my life. I also thoroughly enjoy hanging out and playing with my fur siblings, but I also appreciate some downtime and lounging on my own.

For several months, I was lucky enough to find myself in a foster home with a caring adult and another dog. This experience taught me so much about trust, loyalty, and the joy of being part of a family. I also had the pleasure of belonging to a play group that frequently met with people and dogs from the neighborhood, further enriching my social skills and boosting my confidence.

Recently, I smoothly transitioned into my current foster home, where I now reside with three adults and their three dogs.  I get a charge out of exploring the fenced-in yard and going on walks around the neighborhood with any one of my fur siblings by my side. 

I would thrive in a home with at least one other well-matched dog.   A fenced-in yard would be the icing on the cake, allowing me to explore and enjoy the outdoors safely.

Life has taught me resilience, and I can’t wait to find a forever home where I can share all my love and loyalty. If you and your pack are looking for a companion with a heart of gold, look no further, because I’m right here, with love to give and a spirit that can’t be dampened.


Peter's Medical Information

I have an old injury to my front foot. Thanks to donations from wonderful friends, I was able to get my very own prosthetic. I get around pretty well now!
