Please read Penelopes entire profile, which includes a link to the adoption application. Thank you!**

Heres sweet Penelope, a two-and-a-half-year-old, 55-pound Boxer mix gentle lady.

Penelope was found by a Good Samaritan in an abandoned house nursing her 9 newborn puppies! The kind lady took Penelope home and tried to find her owner, however, no family was found. The lady contacted a local rescue to help the little family! 

Penelopes puppies are now weaned, grown into healthy little ones, and found their own homes. It is Penelopes turn! 

She is shy when first meeting new people, however, after she knows you, will be your best friend and shadow! 

She does prefer women over men and seems to be scared of small children. So a home without small children would be better suited for her. 

She is currently being fostered with several other dogs and cats and does well with all of them. 

All in all, Penelope is just looking for a loving fur-ever home to call her very own! Could you be Penelopes fur-ever home?

All dogs are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered at the time of adoption. All dogs require professional training to become the best family member they can be. To adopt or learn more about Penelope, you must fill out an adoption application.

PLEASE READ: If a dog is listed, then s/he is currently available for adoption. Their information is correct to the best of our abilities and the information we have been given as of the day of posting. Please note, GDRNE does not guarantee the breed of any dog or puppy unless stated that we have run DNA. All breeds listed are educated estimates. Our dogs are rescued from various situations. It is most likely that both their parents were strays and even if not, mixes of some sort and that their grandparents were mixes as well. The dog may have some genetic material of an American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull). The dogs are usually mixes of many breeds, making them a breed all their own - a True and adorable American MUTT.
 If you are interested in this dog, you must submit an application. Great Dog is not a shelter so there is no building you can visit. Our dogs live in private foster homes until adopted.

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
