P is for precious perky Penelope! Penelope has the true pug personality--comical, charming, playful, and sociable. Penelope had a rough start to life, but she holds no grudges and just lives for the present....and her next meal. Penelope ended up in rescue after she was found wobbling down a rural area in Georgia. Penelope had something wrong with both of her legs which made walking difficult. Both of her knees were extremely luxated and required surgery. Now, six months later, Penelope has had both knees repaired, been spayed, and is sporting a lovely smile after a dental cleaning. Today she has a beautiful pain free gait, and is ready for a walk, a car ride, treats? Penelope is a sassy independent little thing who longs for a family of her own. Today she is a happy girl and feels better than she probable has her entire life! Penelope tolerates other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog as she really doesn't want to share the love of her person. Penelope walks well on a leash, is housebroken, and loves car rides. Penelope is probably aboutt 8 years old and weighs about 18# and is young at heart! Penelope would prefer a quiet home, lots of slow walks outside, and no young children please! A home without stairs would be ideal for her as she wants to be where you are. We are adopting only to CT residents at this time.
