Penelope is a sweet boxer/bulldog mix who was transferred to us from Texas.  She spent a good deal of time in a foster home there, where she lived with another dog, and played all day long!  Penelope has been friendly with most dogs here at the shelter, but can become easily frustrated on leash and may bark or lunge and look a bit frightening.  She is VERY strong and will need an owner committed to continuing her socializing with other dogs. A meet and greet with any potential canine housemates is required. With some training and continued socialization, this behavior has decreased at the shelter, and can continue to improve in her home. 

Penelope is fairly high energy, but finds good outlets to entertain herself.  She enjoys playing with toys and will entertain herself if you’re not available for playtime.  She’s quite food motivated and has a great “sit” cue, that she’ll enthusiastically perform for treats.  She’s learning leash skills, but may still pull if she’s allowed to.   Penelope appears to be house trained, and relaxes nicely on a dog bed when indoors.  Though she does appear to have great house manners, Penelope is a high energy dog who would benefit from daily exercise and mental stimulation. 

An owner who would be willing to keep this young girl active and socialized would be best.  Penelope could use continued work on her leash reactivity as well as her obedience, but she is so much fun to train, you’ll enjoy engaging in these activities with her.  She’s very goofy and fun, and has an amazing zest for life.  She’s sure to be a great addition to any family. If you are interested in Penelope please ask the front desk staff to call for assistance.

If you are interested in meeting Penelope, please ask about her at the shelter front desk!
