If you are interested in any of the dogs available at New Leash Rescue, you can reach out to the foster listed below for more information and then complete an adoption application which can be found at https://www.newleashrescue.org/adopt/policy. Please email the completed application to newleashrescue2018@gmail.com

Meet Penelope! She is a 3-4 month old chihuahua mix pup who came to us because her owner could no longer take care of her. She is about 3 pounds right now and sweet as can be! She needs the typical puppy training (house training, crate training, and obedience training) but she does use puppy pads some currently. She can be a barker if she can't be with you, so not recommended for apartments or homes with shared walls where barking could be a concern. She is looking for a family who will continue to keep her socialized to other dogs and new situations, so she continues to grow up as a well rounded, friendly chihuahua. Due to her small size, and the potential for her to be underfoot, Penelope needs a home with kids age 12 and up.


Adoption fee is $450 + tax (no checks)

Foster to contact: Katie - 605-695-5126 (text preferred) or krkallemeyn@hotmail.com

This dog will be at our adoption event at the Woodbury PetSmart on Saturday from 11-2 looking for a home!


Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
