Penelope is an absolute gem of a dog who is now ready for adoption. She is an Australian Shepherd mix who is about 1 year old, she weighs 38 pounds, and she has a mostly black coat with a little splash of white on her chest. Penelope is housebroken, crate-trained, and knows some of her basic obedience commands. She rides great in a car and walks nicely on a leash, with an occasional zig zag when excited. Penelope also does well at bath time – she loves water!
Penelope loves people of all ages, although she is such a lively, goofy girl that she may be a bit too much for small children. She scores high on the Velcro scale – where you go, she goes! Penelope does well with other dogs, but prefers to play with other dogs around her size as bigger dogs can be overwhelming to her. She is a medium-energy girl who enjoys running around outside, playing with her dog pals and playing with her toys, but when playtime is over, she is happy to sunbathe or come inside and cuddle in your lap. Penelope also does really great with cats!
The ideal family for Penelope is happy, loving, attentive, and one that allows dogs to be on the furniture! A fenced yard is required, another playful young dog is important, and any children living at home should be over the age of 10. And cats are welcome! Penelope likes to express her happiness and concerns with “talking”, so she would not do well in an apartment. Finally, Penelope loves people so much, a family who is home most of the day would really be the icing on the cake for this special girl. If you are ready for lots of love and snuggles, you can learn about our adoption process and access our adoption application at www.sohodogrescue.org. Penelope is fostered in Orlando, FL.
