This soulful Shiba Inu mix named Penelope was rescued from Thailand, where sadly, many dogs are captured as part of the illegal dog meat trade. Luckily, though, Penelope made the long journey over to the SPCA to get a second chance. Just a few years old, Penelope has a wonderful disposition — sweet and playful though not overly energetic.
She loves going for walks and is always wagging her tail when she makes new friends. Penelope seems to like other dogs but is also fine on her own as long as she is receiving a lot of love and affection.
To meet Penelope, visit the SPCA of Westchester at 590 N. State Road in Briarcliff Manor.
Founded in 1883, the SPCA is a no-kill shelter and is not affiliated with the ASPCA. The SPCA is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. To learn more, call 914-941-2896 or visit spca914.org.
