Animal Rescuers Without Borders rescued Penelope and the rest of her litter in Mexico, after they were abandoned by the Tijuana River. Being the shy runt, Penelope was given extra alone time to nurse and love on her fur-mom. The day she stopped nursing, her fur-mom got very sick and sadly, passed away from tick fever. After losing her mom, Penelope became withdrawn and lonely, crying herself to sleep at night.Penelope Before and after

When Meg first saw little Penelope, she was told that she ran away from other possible human moms, but the second Penelope saw Meg, she jumped into her arms and licked my face! Her foster mom told Meg that Penelope chose HER!  For that, Meg will be forever grateful.

Meg can say that she rescued her pup, but Penelope rescued Meg. Penelope now lives the good life by the beach in San Diego, digging holes and playing in the water.  She is happy, carefree, and loved…things all dogs should be!
