Peanut just might be one of the most recognizable faces in the Lowcountry. She is the face of Lowcountry Dog Magazine. The magazine has been around since 2005, around the same time that Peanut was born. Our Peanut was adopted from Pet Helpers in 2009. She was found on Wadmalaw Island at the dump with her 8 puppies. After adopting her, Brian Foster began volunteering, fostering, and saving dogs. Peanut became a foster mama for countless puppies over the next 14 years. In 2015, after working part-time with Lowcountry Dog Magazine for a few years prior, Brian purchased the magazine, and Peanut was dubbed, "Chief Canine Officer." A title she has held ever since. Her likeness is used in the magazine logo, on shirts, stickers, and more. Nutty, as her friends called her, was the ideal dog. She was the "mama dog" in every sense of the word, from being a positive role model to the countless fosters that came through the door, to being friendly and kind to everyone she met. After 17 years of being her best self, she was laid to rest on Saturday, January 7, 2023. Her mind and body may have given up but her spirit lives on and her legacy will most certainly live on in her magazine.
In lieu of flowers, we kindly ask that donations be made in Peanut's honor to Pet Helpers, who gave her the chance to find her forever home so many years ago.
