Meet Penelope

Courtesy Listing! Please contact Southern California Dachshund Relief at: and not the rescue group associated with this page. The best (and preferred) method of contact for quick response is by way of e-mail. Please read the dogs’ entire bio before contacting rescue.

Penelope (a.k.a. Penny) is a 5 year old, 11 pound Dachshund mix. Her former owner just did not have time for a dog any longer, as work hours became long and Penny was not getting the level of attention she so richly deserved. Check out those adorable white slippers on her toes and the cute white tip on her tail. We love her coloring.

Penelope is house trained. She will need a home with a dog door and access to a secure yard to continue reinforcing her good potty habits. Fencing must be at least 5 feet tall. This little girl can leap like a kangaroo!

Penelope is extremely friendly and loves everyone she meets. She’d be great with an active family with gentle children over 8 years old, and someone to throw her ball for her. She would love to have a young canine playmate to play with. She loves other small dogs.

Penelope is very pretty with fur that is soft and plush. Her heritage is Dachshund/Aussie mix. She is not a barker, plays with toys, and wants to sleep in the big bed with her people. People living in two-story homes are encouraged to apply for Penelope. Stairs are not an issue for this dog. Penelope needs someone who is home most of the time so she can get the attention and training she needs to be a canine good citizen.

Penelope’s vaccines are up-to-date and she has been microchipped. If you are interested in Penelope, please complete our online adoption application, and contact Dena (562) 694-6868 or email
