found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Age: 3 years old
Weight: 17 pounds
Health: Excellent but she is deaf
Demeanor: Sweet, playful, active, social, anxious, somewhat vocal, alpha
Likes: People, dogs, cats, playing tug-o-war, belly rubs, sleeping in your bed (or in her own bed), treats, bones, stuffed toys
Dislikes: Quick hands/movements, unfamiliar surroundings, new experiences, being crated
Manners: Housebroken, knows some hand signals
Fenced Yard Required: Yes
Tidbits: Adorable Penny is a little character. She is a dominant girl who really enjoys rough housing with other dogs (as long as they know who’s boss. Penny will not back down should there be a tiff). She is strong willed and is a somewhat protective of her toys and food. We think it might be important for her to have another doggy playmate but one that is submissive (and has energy like her). Although Penny loves children of all ages, we want her in a child-free home (older kids are okay) due to her hearing impairment. Young children do not understand the needs of a deaf dog. A startled dog is often a dog that reacts in a negative way.
Though she loves going for walks, Penny is leash aggressive towards other dogs. Because of this, she would do best in a home with a fenced yard where she can play, run and do her doggy business without the stress of a leash. Thankfully her aggression is not exhibited off leash. She also has some separation anxiety which is displayed by digging in her crate. She does calm a bit if she is given a Kong toy with peanut butter. Ideally she won’t be left for long periods of time (I’m talking to you work-from-home or retired folks).
Don’t overlook this beautiful girl! Though she may come with a few challenges, she’s worth your time and effort. Her previous family adored her and did many wonderful things to help her. Their wish is for her to go to the right home with someone who will love Penny as Penny will love them. They want her to succeed in her new environment and we do too. Her people are her world and Penny deserves the best!
The adoption fee for this dog is $350.00 which includes altering, heartworm testing, vaccines, micro-chipping, harness, leash and identification tags. This dog is being fostered in a private home and is not available for viewing.
