Meet Penny


Penny is an absolutely beautiful 3 year old Golden Retriever who needs a very specific home! Please read all about her needs before applying!

Penny is happy, tail wagging, and if she knows you, extremely friendly! After coming to GRRAND, we learned she had resource guarding tendencies, and she spent time with our excellent trainers and behaviourists to evaluate her needs.

What we have learned is that Penny does resource guard certain items, and she can be sensitive around her head.

Our kennel manager has spent a lot of time with Penny, and they have a close bond. He reports that Penny takes awhile to be comfortable and trust a person, but when she does trust you, she's an awesome dog who is very loyal and loving. We have a small team who handle her daily, and she loves to play and run outside, go for walks, do mental stimulation games (she is very smart!), and hang out in the office with her person.

Penny needs the right home with a dog-savvy family who understands how dogs communicate. She will give a warning (ex. growl) if something is going on she doesn't like. This is Penny's way of telling us she wants us to stop doing something, which is great!

Her home must have no children or other animals, either in the home or visiting (e.g., grandchildren who come over). We would do a slow introduction period with several visits to the kennel and to her potential home to help build a bond, along with resource guarding training so we are sure the adopter/foster knows Penny's triggers and how to deal with them. And, as a young Golden, Penny will need plenty of high-quality exercise.

If you are looking for a dog to take to family gatherings or breweries, Penny is not for you. But if you want to truly rescue a dog that just needs patience, understanding, love and training, Penny will reward you with an abundance of love and loyalty

If you think you could be a good fit for Penny, please submit an application so you can connect and learn more!

GRRAND dogs are looking for homes in Greater Louisville, Greater Lexington, and Greater Cincinnati and Dayton. We're sorry we cannot make exceptions to this area
