Penny was very scared , and very thin when she came from California. She is between 2 and 4 years old and weighs about 14lbs. She is good with other dogs, not sure about cats or kids yet.
She is also putting on some weight and doesn't look so anorexic. Penny has found out that we are not going to hurt her. And she is a joker. She will go and pick out a toy and then play with it then growl and bark at it. She loves to run. And she runs FAST. She is easy to train. and will stand up and dance for a treat. She loves the catch me game, and catches me every time (when I hide from her)
She doesn't seem to mind when I pull her tail or her ears, and her energy level is very HIGH. I think she would be good for a family due to her energy level. But I have not tested her with little kids.
Penny loves to hide food, and toys around the house. I think she may have done this on her own so that she could go back later and dig it up. She takes food and toys out side and tries to bury them in the flower beds.
She also sleeps with the foster and sleeps right in the middle of the bed. She is new to a lot of things like my bathroom mirror. She saw me in the mirror and was growing at me then turned and saw me. Then turned to the mirror again and growled. Too funny
The first time a toy squeaked was great to. But now she looks for the squeaker in all the toys and likes to squeak it to death.
She is still new to a leash and is still learning how to walk with the group.
If you would like to meet Penny please fill out a statement of interest www.alternativehumanesociety.com
Rescue Group Info...
The Alternative Humane Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit animal welfare organization serving Whatcom County, WA. AHS has been helping animals and educating the public since 1977.
We have no shelter, office, or paid staff. Our programs include Canine Foster & Adoption, Spay & Neuter Assistance, and Community Cats Information and Referral.
Mission Statement: The Alternative Humane Society of Whatcom County is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to improving the lives of dogs and cats and helping them find and stay in permanent loving homes.
Our goals are:
• To make Whatcom County a community where no healthy animals are euthanized
• To prevent unwanted dog and cat births through spay and neuter assistance
• To cultivate respect and awareness for the needs of animals through education
• To advocate for the humane treatment of dogs and cats in all areas of life
We can be found showing off our loveable dogs at Petco on Bakerview and Guide Meridian in Bellingham on the 1st and 2nd weekend of each month. We also hold an adopt-a-thon the third Saturday of every month at Pet Palace, also on the Guide Meridian in Bellingham. All our showings are between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Come on out and say hi!
AHS does not do same-day adoptions. We provide a form called a “Statement of Interest” for potential adopters to fill out. When completed, this form is reviewed by an AHS volunteer (the animal’s Case Manager) who will contact the potential adopter with any additional questions and arrange a meeting if it looks like a good match. The potential adopter usually hears back from a volunteer within 2-3 days, but since many of our volunteers also work at full-time jobs, the entire process can take longer. Although we try our very best we usually will not be able to contact every person who submits a Statement of Interest, we reserve our limited resources for those who look like a good match.
Dogs under 18 months – $170
Dogs over 18 months – $145
Senior dogs (older than 8 years) – $95
