Hi, I'm Penelope. I was adopted on October 12!

Chihuahua/Terrier Mix

Tan and White

Baby, Female

Penelope (aka Penny) is an adorable 3-month-old, 5-pound Chihuahua/Terrier mix puppy that will likely weigh under 12 pounds as an adult. She’s a playful and energetic pup who loves to play games of fetch with you. She is highly trainable and treat-motivated, her favorite snacks being sweet potato treats and deer antlers to chew on. Penny is doing great with her leash training and she loves to go for jaunts around the neighborhood or strolls on the beach. This friendly girl enjoys meeting new people (she has not had experience with children) and she enjoys the company of other dogs. Her ideal home would have another playful dog buddy that could help her burn off some of her abundant puppy energy! Penelope is doing well with her house training and she’s learning her basic obedience commands in foster care. She’s looking for an adopter that can continue her education – she is a very eager and bright student! Penny came to AFRP from the Hollister area after being rescued as a sick little puppy with Parvo. She is now feeling great and is ready for a lifetime of love. To arrange a meet and greet, please fill out an online application.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, preference is given to residents of Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.
