Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Peanut, a female Feist. She is estimated to be about a year old and weighs approximately 25 pounds. She came to Barely Used Pets earlier this month from another shelter. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and is on the schedule to be spayed. Peanut is the sweetest girl and will steal as much of your attention as she can. One of her special talents is to dance for a treat! She is great with children so would make a wonderful family addition. She is also good with other dogs and cats too. Her adoption fee is $150, which will include spay, all vaccinations and dog license. Please come meet this sweet soul.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dogs)

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League has a bonded pair of dogs named Devo and Zoey. They are 3- and 4-year-old Miniature Pinschers who came to us as an owner surrender through no fault of their own. Devo is an outgoing male who loves attention. Zoey is a shy girl, but warms up nicely once she knows you. They are brother and sister from different litters. Devo and Zoey make a great team and must go together. They walk wonderfully on a leash and are housebroken. It is unknown if they are dog- and cat-friendly, so a potential adopter must do a meet and greet. They’ve been spayed and neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations:Bivalent Flu, Bordetella, Da2PPL, and Rabies. Devo and Zoey have been dewormed, heart-worm tested negative and current on flea and heart-worm prevention.
