Meet Penny

Penny is a senior girl that we estimate to be around 10 - 11 years old. She came into our care after her owner passed away, and he was virtually the only human she had ever known. She is still very fearful of most people, but is making progress and will take treats from her foster parents and sniff/lick their hands. Penny does not like when people reach toward her to pet her or try to pick her up. She does love to be in the same room as everyone else and has started to greet her foster parents when they come home from work. Penny needs a home with a well-socialized dog, preferably an iggy, to show her the ropes and help build her confidence. She loves her foster brother iggy and follows him around like a kid sister.

Although she does seem to understand that it is preferred if she goes potty outside, Penny still struggles with housetraining as it is was never expected of her prior to coming into rescue. She will need an observant, patient home to help her with this. She is much more comfortable outside in her fenced yard now than when she first arrived in rescue and will happily trot around the yard, trying her best to catch squirrels and birds! Due to her skittish nature and lack of experience on a lead, a fenced yard is required. Penny sleeps quietly at night in a little crate by her foster parents' bed and is always very happy and excited to go in there. More and more of her personality is beginning to show, and she has started doing little runs around the couch with a lot of tail wagging. She will likely never be a snuggly, social dog, but this girl would love a safe, loving home in which to spend her retirement years. Penny has had a dental, spay, vaccinations, and is heartworm negative and on preventative.
