Looking for love
Small Female Poodle Mix Dog

Meet Penelope - this super sweet poodle x girl is looking for an equally loving home. She loves to be inside with the family, being spoilt the way every older lady should be. That said - she's still got a number of years in her yet - these little guys can easily live to 15-18yrs of age!
She is inquisitive, sweet and affectionate. She loves cuddles on the couch, loves sleeping on the bed and loves sun baking in the backyard. She is great when out walking and travels beautifully in the car too. She does require a home with other small dog for company when you're not home as she's been used to being with another dog for quite some time. Being an older girl, we don't think the best match would be in a house with toddlers / young kids, but children 8+ or an adult home would be ideal.
Penelope is in good health despite her age, however she does require a special diet to keep her kidneys healthy - she is currently being fed Hills K/D kibble which is very affordable given she eats little due to her size. She also needs to be kept well groomed (brushed regularly and clipped every 6 weeks or so) and ensure she is flea free (monthly medication), as she was almost bald from scratching at fleas when she first arrived in our care. These needs are standard for anyone who is willing to care for her in an adequate manner. She has also had ear infections in the past and also requires artificial tear eye drops (costs $10 a month) as she has dry eyes.
If you have another dog for Penelope to be friends with and would like to meet her, then be sure to put in an enquiry - we know it'll be love at first sight!
