Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua / Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat)
Weight: 20 lbs
Height: 14 in
Estimated Birthdate: 9/26/2022
Fence Needed: Penny would do best in an environment where her activities are controlled, at least for the first few months. Once she bonds to someone she goes right to them. But she has to bond to you and she vastly prefers women. You could have a fenced in yard but it will not keep her in. She can both climb and dig if she feels that there’s something more interesting on the other side - and there is always something more interesting on the other side. We also have noted that she will climb or dig to get to her favorite caregiver. Penny’s best environment will be one that believes that a dog should have a leash on before the door is ever opened and can make sure their lifestyle supports that.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: breeder release/grew too large to use for program
Special Needs: Penny Annie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Penny climbs fences and digs out of fences. We are looking for a committed leash walk home. That can keep her safe. Penny bonds, hard and fast to the right female person. She has no use for men. We’re specifically looking for a female home.
What kind of home would be best for me: Penny has only known life in a backyard breeding program. Yes., think chain link runs, dog houses, and lots and lots of dogs. She is young and eager to learn, but everything you teach her will be brand new. Penny needs a quiet home with very low foot traffic, no kids under 18, and a calm environment. Penny is good with other dogs, and would benefit greatly from having another dog in the home. Another canine would help guide her, teach her what confidence is and how to build it, and would help direct her through this great big world. Size is not important. Her current bestie is a standard poodle that also sails over fences . Together they are happy patrolling the yard. Penny will also climb a 6ft fence to be with her people, but only because the humans she trusts the most are everything to her.
What is my personality like: Penny is a female Chihuahua/Miniature Poodle mix who arrived at CPR in late June 2023 as a breeder release. She has never had structure or consistency in her life, but she is beyond eager to learn everything about being loved. Penny is very scared and nervous when doing new things. She needs a very, very consistent routine each and every day in order for her to fully open up. Once she feels comfortable, she will begin to trust those around her and she will create a loving relationship with the people she confides in the most.
Penny walks wonderfully on leash and is mostly crate trained. She knows no basic commands/cues, but is very eager to learn. She gets anxious when she feels unsafe, but once she trusts you, she trusts you for life. She will also climb a 6ft fence to be with her people, but only because the humans she trusts the most are everything to her. Penny is seeking a home and family where they can teach her all about love, and in turn help her understand that most things aren’t as scary as they may seem.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Penny is extremely shy and fearful when she meets new people, and when she is introduced into a new environment. Once she feels comfortable, she will begin to trust those around her and she will create a loving relationship with the people she confides in the most.
Tips and Tidbits: Penny Annie's birthday is 09/26/22
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
