Penny's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Penny's Story...
Hi, my name is Penny and here is what my foster family has to say about me:
This sweet girl came to us from a rural shelter and was very scared at first, but is also very sweet and is beginning to come out of her shell. Penny loves to be close by, and especially likes to snuggle up with anyone reading a book.
She's gentle and generous with her soft kisses, and seems to especially love children, though she still cowers a little at loud noises. She seemed slightly curious about cats at first, but as Penny's confidence increases, she is showing more interest in chasing the cats at times.

When she spots other dogs, this sweet girl goes from frightened to overjoyed. She wags her tail and play bows and seeks comfort by standing near or, if they are tall enough, under them. She plays beautifully, with great joyful abandon. Penny takes her cues from her canine foster brother and does everything he does. Through him, she has learned all about going up and downstairs, getting love from people, and avoiding eye contact with the dangerous cat.

Penny is already doing very well with potty-training and is sleeping in her crate with only an occasional little whine. She would love a home with people who will be patient with her as she learns to trust her new, safe life, and she would do best in a home with another companion dog. Her foster family loves her dearly and thinks she is so quick to learn and incredibly sweet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny, a Richmond Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Richmond breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
