My name is Penelope and I'm what they call a Chiweenie - a mix between Chihuahua and Dachshund. I'm about a year old and I weigh about 15 pounds. I'm an energetic and super loving little girl. I bounce and flounce everywhere - hop, hop, hop - ever seen a bunny hopping across a yard - well that's me! I'm learning not to jump up on people so much but I just want to be close to you! I really love having other dogs to play with - I'm good with all of them. I'm really good in the car and adore getting to go on walks. I'm still getting used to feeling safe out in the front yard (but I'm getting there!) because I was on the street for a few weeks before a very nice lady rescued me and gave me a safe and warm place to sleep in the house. I'm still working on potty training so you will have to help me with that. I'm getting crate trained too. I don't like it right at first and I squeal but once you tell me to stop squealing I'm a very good girl in the crate. I get to stay in the kitchen and breakfast room during the day with all my friends and I sleep in the crate at night until I'm fully potty trained. I can play fetch a little bit and am learning manners like sit, down and 'off'. I like chewing on pizzles and pork skin when it is time to stop goofing around.
If you are interested in me, please send an email to to get more information on how to fill out an application and have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
