“The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.”

When Peluchin, a 4-year-old miniature poodle-mix, arrived at Kane County Animal Control, he wasn’t in the best of shape due to living the life of a stray.
It didn’t take long, however, for him to perk up, thanks to the care he received from the KCAC shelter staff and veterinarian. As his physicality began to mend, so did his true spirit, and now he has become the sweetest, most mellow little fellow who is passionate about finding his forever home.
He has the perfect personality for almost any home environment. He gets along great with other dogs, and when they get into his business, he merely walks away. His true focus, of course, is the company of people.
Attention hog that he is, he is willing to hang close to whomever wants to spend time with him. Take him for walks, rub his tummy, let him run around your fenced-in yard and he will spend the evening snuggled next to his favorite person, tired but happy because he is home, he is loved, he is wanted.
Congratulations to Rakki, the 8-year-old Schnauzer-mix, whose second chance at a new home walked in KCAC’s door and left with him all in the same day. Rakki must have known because he couldn’t wait to jump into the car and play back-seat driver! Good boy, Rakki!
