Penelope’s previous owner was literally killing her with kindness. We don’t know what caused this sweet 2 year-old Puggle to lose her home but she was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter by her owner. The shelter staff was shocked at her weight upon intake—a staggering 46 pounds on a dog who should weigh about 20-25 pounds. They asked us for help with her as Penelope needed a foster home where she could be put on a strict diet and exercise plan. Penelope is now with us and in a great foster home where she’s eating a healthy diet and getting daily walks as she works to lose the pounds and develop more stamina. Penelope is a sweet, kind, and gentle girl who gets along with everyone—both human and canine—that she meets. In spite of carrying so much extra weight, Penelope has a spring in her step and loves going out for walks. It’s going to be so exciting to see her be able to live her life to the fullest once she sheds those extra pounds. Penelope has excellent house manners and is likely to be housetrained as well. She met the resident kitties at the vet clinic and didn’t seem at all interested in them. Penelope’s going to make an outstanding companion for the person or family who is able to commit to getting her into shape. Her adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Penelope. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
