Update on Penelope: We are very sad to update information on Penelope. SCMR has decided to list her as NOT available for adoption due to a surprise diagnosis of advanced liver cancer, enlarged heart and kidney stones with a very limited prognosis. This inoperable condition leaves little promise, but SCMR will keep her in foster care and provide alternative care and as much love as possible for this sweet dog that came to us as a stray and deserves to have the best for her remaining time. If you would like to make a donation or become one of Penelope’s angels, to offset costs already incurred and future expenses, all contributions are greatly appreciated. Thanks for your support and prayers for our sweet Princess Penelope.
Hello...... My name is Penelope and I need a new home. I was a stray, but now I am in foster care. I am 8-10 years old, and weigh just over 5 pounds. I’m still a little boney from being out there for a while, but once I fill out and my hair grows back, I will be a beautiful little girl. If you need a love bug little doggie, please apply to adopt me. I know how to walk on a leash, like car rides, and am doing great with my house manners. I’m a little growly at times, but get along with other dogs. I like sleeping in the big bed but also in my doggie bed on the floor. I’m just happy to have a soft place to lay my head.
I'll be waiting for you in Eden, NC
