ChihuahuaAvailable for adoption!
Hi, I’m Penny and I am searching for my forever family. I love to cuddle, give kisses, and snuggle under blankets. My foster mom says that I am very sweet, and I am, except when I grumble at one of my blind foster siblings when they step on me when I am asleep. I don’t like that very much and I’m sure to tell them how I feel. I will sometimes play with them when I am awake and get along with them very well. I am always scared when someone picks me up and my foster parents say that I get crazy legs that go all over the place. I much prefer to walk by myself or hold on tight to my foster mom when she carries me. I know how to go up the stairs all by myself, but I don’t know how to go back down again.
I was taken into the shelter as a neglect case and reported to be 9 years old, but I am very young at heart. I have been spayed. I will go potty outside but if I really have to go when I am inside, I will use a wee pad like a good girl. I like to dance around on my back legs and get lots of attention. My foster mom says that I have one very bad habit and I don’t want to give it up no matter how many times I am told “No”. I like to gobble up all of my food and then try to steal everyone else’s. My foster mom makes me eat in a different room and I still try to sneak my way to the others. I'm a very skinny girl and always hungry!
When my foster mom is working at her desk, I curl up in my bed right next to her and will stay there for hours, so if you work from home, you can't ask for a better office mate!
