Meet Penny Lane: Adopted!

Date of birth: 2/2014

8/22/2015: Penny Lane is an adorable Wirehaired Terrier mix. She’s very unique looking and couldn’t be any cuter! She is a year old and weighs 51 lbs. She has a short and very stocky body. We were very curious as to her breed so did a DNA test on her. The results came back that she's 25% Sealyham Terrier; 25% Staffordshire Terrier; 50% mixed breed with not enough breed signals to identify any particular breed. So she's pretty much a Wirehair Heinz 57!

Penny is a very sweet girl. She loves to play with squeaky toys and she loves to go for walks. She’s strong and pulled on her leash when she first arrived. We've worked with her and she's doing much better on a leash now and not very difficult to walk at all. She's an active girl and would love a fairly active person. After her walks, she loves to stretch out with her belly on the cool tile and her legs behind her. She loves getting attention and be petted. Penny sits pretty for treats and is food motivated and very trainable.

She was a little shy when we first met her but after a few weeks she settled in nicely and she's now very friendly and loves people. She’s a little timid around kids, so she wouldn’t be a good match for a home with small kids.

Penny is pretty choosy about her doggie friends. She would probably do best as an only dog. But if you have a dog we’d ask you to make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Penny to see if they get along. She does fine walking on a leash near other dogs.

Penny can jump a fence so would need to be supervised when in a fenced area. She can be barky…. she is a terrier!… so she's probably not be a good choice for apartment living.

She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. We transferred her to our shelter from KCK Animal Control. She's a lot of fun!


Please visit our web site at HSGKC.ORG for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that's included, and for a pet adoption application.

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (7 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, coupons for pet supplies and services, toys, and educational materials. And we'll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don't send the dog home with you that same day.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!
