Arrival Story:
Penelope (formerly Pixie) was featured on PetFinder.com. She was at a kill shelter and on death row. We decided it was high time for Pierre to have a wife (companionship only - NO breeding!!) so we all piled into the family van and drove the hour and change to the shelter.

Bio:
Poor Penelope had a pretty rough life. When she came to live with us, she was filthy, covered in fleas, had heartworms, and every other parasite known to mankind. She's been a trouper about all the vet visits and treatments, though, and has so much more energy and personality now that she's feeling better. We're still working on pottty-training, but she has fewer accidents now, and walks so well on the leash! (She refused to when she first came here to live.) Now she even goes and waits patiently by the door to let us know when she wants to go outside. She loves Dingo bones the best, and stealing Dingo bones from the other dogs second best. She likes to go to bed no later than 10:30 pm, and can usually be found curled up asleep on the couch around that time. She tolerates baths and getting her teeth brushed.
