Penny is an almost 8-year-old, 52-pound chocolate female. She was dropped off by the owner’s son after her owner passed away. She was so terrified in the rural shelter that they sent a plea to us to see if we could help. One look at the shaking girl and she was getting loaded into our vehicle. It took her a few days for her to stop shaking, but now she wants attention just like the other dogs. When Penny greets you, her teeth chatter…at first, I thought it was fear, but now I realize it’s out of excitement. Penny is house trained, crate trained, and walks without pulling on the leash. She knows sit and seems to have nice house manners. She’s ok with her foster friends but she would definitely prefer a quieter, more laid-back household. Penny, aka Girly, isn’t a worldly girl and it’s going to take a few days to decompress wherever she ends up calling home. So, for the patient person who can see into those precious eyes and sees the dog she will be, you will have a wonderful addition to the family. Usually we consider 9 and over as senior dogs but Penny acts more like an easy going senior girl.
