Penny is just as sweet and gentle as they come! She walks pretty well on a leash for a dog who has probably never been walked before. She is somewhat deaf, low maintenance and not fussy at all. She is laid back, is completely housebroken and has a healthy appetite. Now in a loving foster home, her foster mom says that Penny has a lot of life in her and enjoys her walks and loves the grass.
Penny is good with other dogs and would probably be fine with cats, too. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Her foster mom says that Penny is loving, sweet, gentle & she just wants to be near "her person". She enjoys people watching out the window and she has one ear that is always up! If you are looking for an easy going, loving gal then Penny is the one for you!
Here is Penny's sad background:
A rescuer was at a rural country vet when a lady approached her about these two dogs that have been living outside abandoned at their home. Their owner had been taken to a nursing home, and nobody in the family wanted them so they just stayed outside in the cold. A kind neighbor brought them food each day, but she was leaving for Florida & she could no longer care for them. Poor little Penny was so cold when the temperatures dropped to the teens, so the neighbor put a sweater on her.
These two sweet dogs are not youngsters either to have to go through all of this. Penny is 14-15 years old, and weighs 17 pounds, and Hazel is 9-10 years old, and weighs 46 pounds. A acquaintance of this family was going to pick up Hazel, but was planning on leaving Penny there alone. We could not let that happen, so both girls have been rescued. When the rescuer asked the neighbor why the dogs could not live inside this house rather then outside, she was told that there was nothing but garbage inside and the place was loaded with rats.
When Eleventh Hour Rescue heard about Penny & Hazel's situation, they sprang into action & rescued both dogs from their horrible situation. Hazel has found her way to a new home with a loving family. Penny is still waiting to find hers though.
