Sunbeams, seasonal fruits, chairs for exactly 1 (her), and long walks on secluded beaches: these are a few of Peaky’s favorite things. She’s the perfect COVID companion--she strongly prefers 6 feet from strangers and likes to keep the houseguests to members of the pod. Shaking hands and kissing babies may not be her jam, but if you’re a Real One, Peaky’s happy to lounge the day away as your sophisticated sidekick. With time, she’ll start to dole out her patented Peaky Pecks (the teeniest kisses) and press herself next to you on the couch.

Peaky has a great low to flexible energy level and is quite satisfied with a neighborhood meander with plenty of time budgeted for sniffing (in her opinion, if you wanted to get your heart rate up, you should go for a run). She’s happy to throw in a special hike or adventure here or there--in fact, her favorite foster outing is to share a breakfast burrito and play in the waves on a quiet beach. From there, she’ll happily entertain herself with a sunbeam nap, a chew on a bone, or an occasional spurt of silliness or a formidable game of tug. When you’re gone, a crate full of cozy blankets is all she needs to content herself.

Peaky’s occasional cat-like independence seems to come from a place of being an introverted worrywart. She’s been working hard in her foster home to learn new skills to lift the weight of the world off her shoulders. She considers herself a high maintenance low maintenance dog--really, all she needs is a comfy place to rest her head, share a snack, and keep up with her pesky allergies (did she mention she is quite literally allergic to people?!), and the rest of her sometimes silly, sometimes sweet, always quirky personality will reveal itself in time.

About 4 1/2 years old and 55 pounds, Peaky is crate-trained, house-trained, micro-chipped, up to date on routine vaccinations and knows her basic commands.
