Penguin is a gentle giant with lots of energy to spend! He’s good with kids and other dogs from what I can tell, but I’m not sure about cats yet. He’s a curious soul always getting his big cute nose into something. Penguin is by far not a tough boy. He would rather lay around and cuddle or play. He needs plenty of space to run and a companion for life. Penguin does get a bit anxious when left alone and has a slight chewing problem. For the most part, he’s potty trained and almost fully kennel trained. For the right person, he’s the perfect best friend.



Penguin is from a local impound. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
