When Peanut Butter and Jelly were picked up from the streets and brought to Sonoma County Animal Services, in California, they attracted a lot of attention. As soon as they arrived at the shelter, the staff noticed that there was something shiny on their foreheads.
When the shelter staff approached the pups, they were both shocked and confused when they realized that the dogs had jewelry glued to their foreheads. Although many of the shelter members had worked in animal care for a long time, they had never seen something like that before.
The Adorable Duo Finds A Home
Peanut Butter is a Beagle and Pug mix, and Jelly is a female Chihuahua mix. They arrived at the shelter in 2015, and the vet team decided that the jewels and the glue had to be removed. They wanted to make sure the glue didn’t contain any harmful substances.
After the glue was removed, it was determined that it didn’t cause any damage to the canines’ health. However, Peanut Butter and Jelly had a secondary burn and they were left with scars on their foreheads.
Other than that, the canines were alright, and they were eager to find their forever parents and start a new life.
The doggos were happy when a wonderful family came along and gave them a wonderful home. Their family loved them and took care of them. Sadly, after their owner passed away, the pups had no one else to care for them.
At The Shelter Once Again
They were brought back to Sonoma County Animal Services.
Since Peanut Butter and Jelly were now seniors, they were transferred to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization located in San Francisco that helps dogs over the age of 7 find their forever home.
Their foster mom, Lisa Arden, took great care of them. She cuddled with them and gave them all her love.
“They are very sweet and friendly dogs who are great around people and get along well with other dogs. They continue to blossom in foster, showing both of their silly personalities. They are both still quite active and love to run around and play. They are just the most wonderful dogs,” Arden told The Dodo.
Although both dogs had big personalities, Arden said that Jelly was the boss of Peanut Butter. She liked telling him what to do.
A Forever Home
After spending three months in foster care without receiving any adoption applications, their foster mom made a TikTok video about the two canines. She introduced them to her followers, wishing to increase their pool of potential adopters.
The video went viral. The lovely pups and their magnetic personalities stole the hearts of many people online.
On October 26th in 2023, Arden shared great news on her Instagram. Peanut Butter and Jelly had a virtual meet and greet with their new dad. They had an amazing time.
Arden said that she was certain that the doggos found the best possible home. They can’t wait for the adoption to be finalized, and for them to ride into the sunset with their new dad.
We’re thrilled that the lovely pooches found their forever home, and we wish them many adventures with their new dad.
