Penny is a beautiful young Great Pyrenees looking for her furever home! Penny spends most of her day hanging out with her foster siblings who she adores, so she will absolutely love to go to a home with at least one or two other dogs to keep her company. Penny plays rough, so she will need a playmate who can keep up. She is an absolute sweetheart who is great with other dogs and people of all shapes and sizes. She loves to cuddle with her people, and get all the pets :) She does chase cats, so a cat-free home for her. As she is still a pup, she is working on house training, basic commands, and learning what she can and cannot chew on. Penny has found her voice and has a big bark, so anyone who adopts her needs to be okay with her talking a lot! Overall, Penny is an amazing dog and whoever adopts her will be very lucky.

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
