Pet of the Week: Meet Penelope, a sweet beagle looking for a new home

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – Penelope lost her person due to a death. Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society introduces us to this sweet older dog.

Name: Penelope
Breed: Beagle
Age: 9 years old
Sex: Female
Color: White with brown


Penelope is a lovely girl with big, soulful Beagle eyes who’s looking for her next home. She loves to play with chew toys and has been described as “cute, fun, social and energetic.” Penelope loves rolling on the grass, getting belly rubs and laying on the couch. She’d be a good first dog for someone, is house trained, and will be a good walking buddy. She needs to go to a home with no other dogs or cats. Penelope has thyroid disease which is being well-managed with a pill at this time. It’s important that she see a vet for regularly scheduled wellness visits to monitor her health. She came to Dakin when her person passed away, and while she was deeply loved, other family members were unable to give her the time she deserves. We’re sure she will bring joy to a new person or family.
