Penny is a 5 year old, 75 pound, pit mix that has a face that you won't soon forget! The only thing more memorable than her darling face is the happiness that hides behind it. Sure, the time she has spent in the shelter has started to wear on her and she doesn't show as well as she should while watching people pass her by window shopping. She just wants someone to see her. To pay attention to her. To care enough to stop and say hello. She just wants someone to love her, someone that she can be special to. She has so much to give and she's going to make sure to make each day you spend with her one you will be thankful for. Penny is so silly and she loves to show off! She will happily sit, shake and lay down for you, while smiling the whole time. She will even do this in the wet grass if you ask her, she's that kind of dog, the kind that just wants to please her person. She needs a person. She will be a great dog in a family with older kids. She's not mouthy. She takes treats easy. She is house trained. She's playful. She likes kids and would really enjoy having one or two older kids to play with in the backyard. She a great middle aged girl that isn't too busy and isn't too lazy. You know, she's just right! Penny will have to go to a family without other pets as she doesn't seem to enjoy being around them. If you are looking to be a one dog family and you'd like to add a stunningly beautiful girl to your home, then please give our Pretty Penny a visit at Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, 341 S Birdneck Road. You can ask for her by name and/or ID# 1704-1573, in the front lobby, and we will be happy to bring her out to meet you. Be sure to ask for a treat and let her show you how smart she is. It will make her happy and maybe that sweet face will even win your heart in the process!
