Available Dogs arrow PENNY (18-051)

Penny18 051 2PENNY (18-051) is a very loving, very cuddly 6 year old female that craves human attention; a true Velcro dog. Penny came to GRREAT with a partially torn cruciate ligament in her knee that required surgery. She has recovered remarkably well and can now run and jump with her foster brother. Penny does well on a leash with a harness and loves to go on walks. She had been overweight at one time but now she is down to an ideal 70 pounds. Penny takes a very inexpensive thyroid medication twice a day. She loves living with another dog and has lived with cats. A fenced in yard is a must because Penny does not like to “do her business” on a leash. Penny has excellent house manners, although if you leave a loaf of bread near the edge of the counter it is hard to resist. She does not jump onto beds but she LOVES the couch and her favorite thing to do is to snuggle on the couch with her head in your lap. When Penny sees a dog on TV she will bark and get very excited. She loves children of all ages and rides well in the car. She will be a wonderful companion in her Forever home.
