Penny is a quiet, sweet Chihuahua/Lab mix, who is 4 months old and weighs about 15 lbs. Penny is a little timid with new people and new environments and is cautious about approaching new things. Easily scared by loud noises, a quiet home will be more suitable for Penny. Even so, Penny is extremely friendly with other dogs and isn’t afraid to go up to them and greet them.
Penny loves napping in her big, fluffy bed during the day, and at night, she’s well-behaved and stays in her crate. Penny loves to play with her favorite toys: stuffed animals and fleece slippers and often has them tucked away in bed with her. She is house trained, walks great on leash, and loves chasing after tennis balls. Even though she typically won’t stay outside longer than 20 minutes, she loves running around and playing in the snow. She’s not as mouthy as puppies usually are and is also very easy to redirect with chew toys or treats once she tries to chew on things. She is smart and a quick learner; she already knows how to sit and wait for her treats. Penny may be quieter than most dogs, but she can still be full of energy and will absolutely light up any household she’s in! Penny is not suited for city living.
