Meet Penny

Penny came into care after her elderly owner had to move and could no longer care for her. She lived with Ricky (also available to adopt) on 5 acres. We think she and Ricky would be best rehomed together.

Penny’s a sweet, quiet girl who's happy to hang out with you inside, or catch some sun by herself in the yard. She knows basic commands like: 'come', ‘wait’, ‘on your bed’.

Penny can be shy meeting new people, but warms to you once she knows you. She's strong on lead walks and would benefit from further lead training.

OK around other dogs? Yes, controlled greetings have gone well

House trained? Yes

Exercise routine: 2 walks a day

Living arrangements: mostly inside, with regular access to outside. She's used to someone being home most of the day.

OK with kids? Would suggest older kids

OK with other animals? Sometimes reacts to cats on street walks but seems fine with birds that visit the yard.

Food Routine: A mix of dry food and tinned salmon for breakfast. Dry food and raw meat or wet food for dinner.
