Penelope is an adorable 11 month-old Rat Terrier mix girl who was found as a stray and taken to the local shelter. When she wasn’t claimed there, she made the trip from the overcrowded shelter to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the perfect new home. According to the shelter, Penelope is very people, dog, and cat-friendly. While she hasn’t met any cats since coming to us, we can definitely confirm that this girl makes fast friends with all people and dogs that she meets. She’d certainly enjoy having a playful canine buddy in her new home but might also be fine as the only dog in the home provided her family has plenty of time to spend with her. Penelope can be vocal when left alone or when things are not to her liking so she probably wouldn’t be a good fit for apartment living. She’s an active young dog who loves to run and play so a yard with a secure above ground fence to allow her to explore to her heart’s content would be ideal for her. She would also enjoy trips to doggie daycare. Penelope has been working on her leash skills since coming to us and she’s getting better with daily practice. She knows the sit command and will eagerly sit for a treat. Penelope keeps her crate spotless so is likely to be housetrained too. This little lady has plenty of spunk and would make a great hiking buddy for someone who wants a smaller companion. Penelope weighs about 21 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
