Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Hi My name is Penelope. Penny for short.  I’m a 7 1/2 year old beagle looking for a forever home.  I’m potty trained, kennel trained and a great snuggler.  I can guard the house by myself while you are at work and use the doggy door when needed.  I prefer to take naps and lots of naps on the couch.  I don’t chew, except for those yummy bones.  I promise I will keep all the squirrels and birds up in the tree, they shouldn’t be on the ground anyway!  I do love to go on walks and I’m learning to walk nicely and not get so excited.  I do well with other dogs and people of all sizes!


Penelope is current on vaccinations, spayed, HW negative and micro chipped.
