Penelope is 7 1/2 years old, female (approx. DOB 10-31-15), 44 lbs., vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped.

Poor Penelope got brought to the shelter with 5 other dogs; she lost her family.

In her SC Foster home: Penelope is a gentle and dainty girl who has impeccable manners and is as sweet as can be. Even though she is young, she can be trusted to roam the house without issues. She is very calm, potty trained, quiet, not destructive, and does not have any resource guarding issues. She has been great in a foster home with another dog and kids. She is even trusted enough to sleep in the bed with one of the kids.

She can be nervous of new people and new dogs and needs a slow introductions, but comes around very quickly.

Her ideal home could be an apartment or a house. She could be an only dog, but would ideally do better in a home with another mid to low energy dog to help her with her confidence. She is not a dog that would enjoy dog parks or any type of water activities, but she loves going on walks and car rides around town. She does like & enjoy other dogs after patient introductions (as always should be). She is extremely sensitive to correction and wants to please which makes her highly trainable. She is a fantastic all around great dog!
