"Sweet as pie with extra sugar on top" is probably the best way to describe Penelope (aka Nellie). This little lady is amazingly affectionate, gentle, and trusting. She definitely likes to be close to her human companions and will follow you around the house or through the yard, and trot along happily on leashed walks. Nellie is super healthy and in great shape.

At her foster home, Nellie is very relaxed and has nicely decompressed. That said, Nellie is not a fan of change and will need at least a couple of days to feel comfortable with new people in a new home. Her initial urge might be to hide or to get away, and she may dig under fences to get out of the yard. She will need to be closely watched and securely contained during this transition period, but once she feels safe, she turns into the most devoted and loyal lovebug and her drive to escape decreases to zero. When her foster family went on vacation and Nellie moved to a temporary foster home, she was part of the tribe after the third night.

Nellie is a perfect pack dog. The minute she arrived at her foster home, she effortlessly fit right in with their two small dogs and two cats. We don't know how she would be around children, but we assume that she would do well with calm and gentle kids. She is a relaxed passenger on car rides and enjoys going on adventures. This sweet girl is looking for a loving family where she will be showered with copious amounts of TLC, preferably with another mellow dog or two and/or agreeable cats for company. She does prefer women as companions.

Penelope was found as a stray and came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services.
