Penny's Info...

Penny's Story...
Penny was very scared , and very thin when she came from California. She is between 2 and 4 years old and weighs about 14lbs. She is good with other dogs, not sure about cats or kids yet.

She is also putting on some weight and doesn't look so anorexic. Penny has found out that we are not going to hurt her. And she is a joker. She will go and pick out a toy and then play with it then growl and bark at it. She loves to run. And she runs FAST. She is easy to train. and will stand up and dance for a treat. She loves the catch me game, and catches me every time (when I hide from her)

She doesn't seem to mind when I pull her tail or her ears, and her energy level is very HIGH. I think she would be good for a family due to her energy level. But I have not tested her with little kids.

Penny loves to hide food, and toys around the house. I think she may have done this on her own so that she could go back later and dig it up. She takes food and toys out side and tries to bury them in the flower beds.

She also sleeps with the foster and sleeps right in the middle of the bed. She is new to a lot of things like my bathroom mirror. She saw me in the mirror and was growing at me then turned and saw me. Then turned to the mirror again and growled. Too funny

The first time a toy squeaked was great to. But now she looks for the squeaker in all the toys and likes to squeak it to death.

She is still new to a leash and is still learning how to walk with the group.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny, a Bellingham Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
