- Good with Dogs
- Good with Kids
Sweet Penny is hoping for a furever family of her own in time for the summer fun times! Even though this girl can be camera shy, Penny actually loves her people and welcomes visitors at all times! She has a heart of gold and knows no stranger - she is not shy about going up to visitors and making them feel at home by letting them give her a good head scratch. In fact, she is the most polite girl when it comes to greeting visitors! Penny is a great playmate for her foster siblings - they invent all sorts of fun games to play together in the yard. Although loves being with her foster sibs, she prefers to eat alone undisturbed during mealtimes. Penny longs for people of her own to love, and she will do best in an active home where her people take the time to ensure she has plenty of enrichment and daily activities to promote her mental and physical health. Penny is such a sweet, gentle girl; we are pawsitive that she will be the most loving companion for a lucky family.

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.
