Meet sweet little (okay, not that little, but not that big, either) Penelope, a lab/pit mix who’s under a year old. She’s not looking her best because she originally was very thin and suffering from hair loss due to allergies, but she’s getting better every day, gaining weight, and her hair is growing back quite nicely.
I’m not sure what caused her poor medical condition, but it sure hasn’t affected her love for people! She’s quite the affectionate cuddler, wanting to come up to you to offer hugs and kisses.
Penelope would probably love a warm lap. I can imagine her curled up blissfully in front of a fireplace or in the sun.
She also knows ‘sit’ and would love to learn more. She’s a little sensitive given her background, but she’s very willing to learn, especially if she knows you are gentle, kind, and have lots of treats to offer! She likes other dogs, and would probably pick up some confidence from them.
In the last two photos, it looks like Penelope’s trying to sniff out her possible new home! Will you help her find one? If so, come visit her in Kennel 4. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
