Penelope has been adopted! 09-22-2019
Penelope was very sick and at a county shelter, which is not a good combo. She had Pyometra, but had surgery at the shelter and needed immediate rescue. We sent her directly to our vet and, a few weeks later, she was ready for a foster home. This pint sized cutie is a glutton for belly rubs, crate trained, and potty trained (this is probably the first time she's been allowed inside a house, but she caught on quickly with a schedule). Her fosters have also started taking her to training, so she's well on her way to being a star!
Around 55 pounds, this amber beauty loves people, is now good on a leash, loves to go for walks and hikes, has been fine around large dogs, but has a big prey drive (There is nothing better than hunting squirrels! 😂) and wouldn't do well in a home with small dogs. If you've been looking for a smart and affectionate young GSD who is now healthy as can be, this is your girl.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
