Meet Penelope 2

Please read the dog's entire bio before you apply. Sadly, we are no longer able to respond to every application, but if your application appears to be a good match for the dog we will reach out within 3 days.
Penelope is a female black/white chihuahua born 4/2015. She is a senior but is very spry and certainly does not act like an older dog. Penelope loves people and other dogs and is a little velcro dog who loves snuggling. She is good on the leash and is just over 10 lbs and a bit chubby. She is good on the leash and jumps right into the car for car rides. Her senior owner passed away. As many chihuahuas Penny becomes very protective of her person, she decides to guard them from others, so she is not a good match for small children or very busy households.
Most of our dogs are not available to an out of the area adoption because of difficulty to follow up. If you do not live within a 2 hr drive of Orange County, please email us before applying to see if the dog you are interested is may be a candidate for long distance adoption. We only make consider long distance adoptions for dogs who have been in our rescue for 6 plus months with no local candidates.
