penny THE CHUG - updated!

10 y/o female pug/chihuahua mix

​​Hola! My name is Penny. I am an 18-pound, 10-year old female pug mix with no health problems.  With my slim, athletic, tiny build and frisky nature, the pug panel of experts is now convinced I am a CHUG – a pug chihuahua.  I came from a bad situation where I was unsure and scared all the time, but with the love, kindness and patience of my foster family, I’m now a happy girl, active and playful as a puppy! My turn-ons include squeaky toys, car rides, walks, fenced-in yards for me to play in, and snuggling with my people on the couch or next to you as you sleep in bed.  My turn-offs are weirdos knocking at the door, little kids who can really hurt me if they pick me up and drop me, cages and crates, and non-mellow dogs who won’t let me have a lot of lovey-time with the humans.  I am a great little watch dog, a true lady when it comes to knowing where to do my business, and want nothing more than to be some lucky family’s little tan shadow. 

Due to her small size, Penny would do best in a home with older children or adults.  She gets along well with her pug foster brother and sister, but it took a little while for the new pug crew to get used to each other.  As with any blended dog family, a little patience while everyone gets acclimated is important!  We think Penny would like a home where she is the only dog or the other dogs are, like, chill and let her be her high-energy, cuddly little self.  Penny is good with cats so a feline-friendly household would also be a good fit! Penny’s adoption donation is $250.
