** IN VERMONT ** Meet Penny!    More pics and video to come! Penny is approx. 2-3 years old, female, spayed, vetted, micro-chipped, and about 45 lbs. Penny is a great pup; she is most happy when she is cuddled up next to a human (adults and kids alike). She is not a barker and loves to consume rawhide. Miss Penny hasn't quite taken to the cold weather but she is getting more used to it. In a nutshell....she is extremely low maintenance and just wants to be cuddled! Penny is best without cats and may do well with 1 dog as a companion but only with proper introductions and patience. Penny lives with another dog now that she loves but it took some time for her to warm up. Since then, they are best buds and even share a dog bed and human bed. She is good with kids; Penny is absolutely fine with children of all ages. She loves people, loves to ride in the car, is potty trained, is a very quiet dog, isn't intimidated or scared of men. She can be very active when she is outside as she likes to chase squirrels and chipmunks (prey drive toward smaller animals). Inside, she likes to lay around. Penny is a fantastic dog. She would do well with any family. If they have a dog, the new family would just need to take it slow and follow introductions instructions to set her up to succeed with another dog.

Disclosure:   Breed labels are often incorrect: we rarely know the genetic lineage of the dogs we rescue.  Many shelters and rescues specify breeds based on appearance; however, research has shown that less than 2% of a dog’s DNA determines appearance!   Passion 4 Paws does not practice the use of labels pertaining to compatibility with others or dog breed.  Labels such as “dog friendly” and “child friendly” should be used with caution as they often over-simplify the personalities and behavior of dogs. 


About Passion 4 Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Passion 4 Paws is an animal rescue organization founded by Robin Shover of Shelburne, Vermont. Robin has invested many years learning best practices to rescue dogs primarily from death row at high kill shelters. Robin works very closely with Potters Angels Rescue out of Randolph, Vermont and decided the most effective way to save even more dogs is to continue working closely with PAR plus her own new entity in Chittenden County and surrounding areas. Many people who personally know Robin realize her "passion" and dedication to the dogs. P4Ps rescues dogs from high kill shelters, provides a safe environment with foster families and adopters, education for the community, and advocacy for animal rights. Our group will be staffed entirely by volunteers and will be served by a Board of Directors. Our efforts will be supported through donations, charity events, Corporate/Employee Benefit tax deductible donation programs, and the generosity of animal lovers from within the community. Our focus is on dog rescue only. All funds received will be used strictly for this purpose and will incorporate medical bills, transport fees, food and other items for the dogs, shelter fees, charity events, boarding, and training.
