She May Be Small, But Penelope Is Mighty And Full Of Energy
Penelope is looking for her fur-ever home. She's a 6-year-old Rat Terrier that is available to be adopted right now at Pets Fur People in Tyler, Texas.
Penelope ended up in the care of Pets Fur People because her previous owner moved away and she was unable to take her to the new city. According to executive director Gayle Helms, Penelope loves to sleep under the covers right beside you. She is an alpha girl who wants all the attention. So other dogs or cats or small children wouldn't be a good fit for her.
She weighs about 10 pounds and would be suited to a house with older children. Penelope is friendly, knows some basic commands, and will sit by the back door when she needs to go outside. So she's house-trained, a major win when you adopt this cute girl.
Penelope will go home with a starter kit of food, a big fluffy dog bed, a collar and leash and a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.
For additional information on adopting Penelope call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website.
