Let’s get right to it: Penelope was adopted as a puppy (fka Paris) and her family needs to find her a new home as she is uncomfortable, and has snapped at the toddler in the home. She needs a very specific home due to her uncomfortability around children, resource guarding, reactivity towards other animals (she is not dog friendly and very leash reactive upon seeing a dog) and the fact that she cannot be startled when sound asleep.
Key Descriptors: Funny. Quirky. Sassy. Strong-willed.
Energy level: Higher
Cuddly or independent: Independent. Though on a rare occasion you’ll get some nighttime cuddles.
What makes us laugh: Her proclivity to do her zoomies on the bed, usually pre-bedtime or post coming in from outside in the snow or rain.
What she loves: A good back rub or butt scratches with your feet. Food. Sunbathing. Hard treats. Partaking on neighborhood watch.
Watch out: She’s a sneaky counter surfer. Has been caught stealing ?a ?pizza slice, a stick of butter, and a cheeseburger. 
Stranger danger: Nope. She’s meeting you excitedly head on and paws up. Usually hello barks accompany this greeting.
Security system rating: A+. You’ll know when someone is at the door, around the house, or around the street corner.
What she knows: Sit. Lay.
Dogs: Pass. She wants to be queen b!
Cats: Nope
Kids: No thanks!
Crate-trained: Yes, but has proven trustworthy to not need it. 
House-trained: 100%
