Penny

Sex: Female

Breed: Pug/Chihuahua x

Birth Date: TBA


This sweet but nervous girl is Penny. She’s a Chug (chihuahua/pug x) and her whole little world turned upside down. She came into the shelter with 3 adorable seniors. Camp Golden Years had room for the seniors but we couldn’t leave their younger family member behind just because she wasn’t a fit for a senior dog rescue so she officially became a Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue dog!

Penny is shy and nervous in new situations but warms up to people quickly. She really just wants all the love you can give and will sweetly ask for attention by touching you with her paws. She has big doe eyes that can melt even the hardest of hearts and we are so thankful we could give her the 2nd Chance she deserves. Penny is good with other dogs once she’s warmed up to them and prefers lower energy pups likely because she’s lived with seniors her whole life. She does well with older respectful children and her crate and house training skills have been good in her foster home.


If you like the shy pups and want to give a sweet girl the chance to shine apply to make Penny part of your family.


  • Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook

  • Each pet will have its own profile here on the website

  • All pets will be spayed or neutered

  • All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date

  • Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)

It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.


We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.


It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.


If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.


Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.


If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
