Penelope is now with her forever family….and what a great family it is!!! Her new mom and dad absolutely love her already. She and her mom have a very special bond and her dad has already spoiled her. Her doggie sister is in love too. Her family was not sure that their English Bulldog would ever come back to them after losing her beloved brother, but Penelope has woken her up inside and brought a sparkle back into her eyes. Also, Penelope is now potty trained. Yay Penelope…you go girl!!
We are absolutely thrilled for Penelope and her forever family! What a perfect match!
Sweet Penelope is ready to find her forever home!! She is 8 years old and was surrendered because her owner was in an accident and could no longer care for her. She is a very happy couch potato. She loves to snuggle and nap with people and other dogs. She is not a dog you are going to be able to take on long walks. She is much better suited for a life of lounging around. She doesn’t even jump….her foster mom has never seen her try to jump onto or down from furniture.
She has signs of possible hip dysplasia and is on supplements for it. She also has had crystals in her urine. She is crystal free now but will need to be on special food for the rest of her life to help prevent crystals from developing. She cannot be left outside in the heat very long at all and must have air conditioning. She breathes very well unless she plays a lot or is outside more than short instances…then she will breath heavy, but she does recover quickly.
Penelope is partially housebroken. She came from a home where she was potty pad trained so she was not often taken outside to potty. Some days her foster mom can get her to do her business outside and other days Penelope will wait to go potty until she comes back inside. Hopefully with time, she will always potty outside.
She is crate trained but prefers to not be crated. She is also leash trained but does require a fenced yard. She has demonstrated no temperament issues in her foster home. She likes to play with the resident dogs, but she doesn’t have the energy level to always keep up. She loves to chew, especially on Benebones….so these are a must to have for her in her forever home.
She would do best in a home where someone is mostly home with her. Someone who can take her to work and other places would be great too. She should also have another dog in the house for company as she does not like to be alone. She would prefer a quiet home. Her foster home is quite busy with grandchildren and several other dogs. While she is okay with it and gets out of the way of the kids, she really is a quiet girl who would prefer to have more of the attention to herself.
Penelope will follow her human everywhere. She is such a sweet little girl. She is the sweetest dog her foster mom has ever met. When she first came to her foster home, she pancaked to the floor. While she does not do this much anymore, occasionally it does still happen. She deserves to have the very best life for the remainder of her days. She just wants to be cuddled and loved.
