About Me

pen_under-table penelope-side penelope-frontAre you looking for a cuddly, quiet lap dog that loves walks as much as a warm lap? Then look no further. This sweet senior is quiet and shy, but gets along with everyone; including both dogs and cats.

Although she has a chronic medical condition that will require ongoing medication, it is completely manageable and she is a courageous and cooperative trooper.

Penelope warms up to people fast and enjoys time on your lap, but is able to entertain herself if necessary. She just wants a caring patient family who will love her forever. Please consider this sweet soul who will fill your heart with joy.

If you are interested in Penelope, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application. Please consult our Adoption FAQ before contacting us.

NOTE: We are an all volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.

Penelope is NOT expecting to attend the next adoption show, October 22nd at the Bowie PetSmart, although there is always a chance that plans may need to change at the last minute.
