Meet Tulip! Tulip and her furry siblings, who you’ll meet in the coming weeks, are frequent visitors of the Penny’s Play, Sit & Stay digs! Tulip is a five-and-a-half year old mix breed rescue dog, who we are SO happy came into our lives!
We asked Tulip’s mom, Courtnie, to tell us her adoption story to add with this spotlight and reading it made us fall in love with Tulip all over again and we’re happy for you to fall in love with her, too! Courtnie said, “Tulip came into our home as a four year old foster who had just given birth to a litter of 9 puppies. [side note from us: wow! 9 puppies!!! can you imagine how cute they must be!?] After being rescued, nursing her pups and seeing them all safely off to their forever homes, Tulip found herself in a shelter. Her mild and sweet nature weren’t a fit for the noise and chaos of shelter life-enter our family. As soon as I met her I knew there was something incredibly special about this beautiful girl. Her spirit was timid but not broken and through her eyes you could tell that all she needed was a good rest and lots of love-thankfully, we could give her both. Over the next several weeks we noticed a bond forming between Tulip and our resident puppy Gremlin. The two were soon inseparable. Tulip watched over Gremmie and Gremmie brought out the playful side of Tulip. It was like they were meant to be together and who were we to tear them apart? Tulip has been with our family for about a year and a half and has given us more love than we ever thought possible. She is sweet and patient and always hungry and the most perfect dog there is.”
We couldn’t agree more with Tulip’s sweet and patient nature and what a perfect dog she is! Tulip has definitely become a part of the family here at Penny’s, and holds a special place in our hearts. She is arguably the best snuggler – like she just scooches right up onto you and we couldn’t love that about her more! While she tends to be on the calmer side, (she is a lot like our Abbey) she doesn’t hesitate to run around and play during yard time. She loves to roll around in the dirt and wrestle with her brothers Gremmie & Lou. She also loves to give lots of kisses and we love when she is here to give them! She is such a sweet girl and we truly look forward to every day that we get to have her around.
