Li'l Tarzan and Peanut chosen for Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl!


Li'l Tarzan is a Maltese & Powder Puff baby boy who loves playing hide & seek.  When he gets pooped out, he lets you catch him so he can snuggle with you.

He likes having lots of toys around to choose from.  If you forget to leave him good choices, he'll select household items and make them into toys.

Li'l Tarzan was just 10 days old, homeless and motherless, at the time of rescue.  Wonderful foster parents bottle fed him every three hours, day and night, to save his life.

He is having a wonderful time in a foster home playing with cats and dogs.  His foster parents are planning on adopting him and giving him a forever home.


Peanut is a precious baby girl, a Brussels Griffon mix, who loves to chat with you throughout the day. 

She tugs at the pant legs of her foster parents' pants to plead with them to stay every time they try to leave the house.  If they are gone too long, she scorns them with grunts and groans upon their return.

Thank you very much to Animal Planet for showcasing a rescued girl with advanced special needs to show the reality of animal rescue.  Peanut was born with a birth defect affecting the flow of blood to her liver ("liver shunt").  An exceptionally generous anonymous donor paid for her surgery at Las Vegas's world-class advanced veterinary clinic and Peanut has been recovering well.

Peanut's foster family is planning to adopt her and provide her with a loving, forever home.

Thank you very much to Animal Planet for selecting Li'l Tarzan and Peanut to compete in Puppy Bowl 2017, which airs on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5!
