Where will she travel from? She is in foster in the UK
Penny is a medium sized dog with a funny personality and a very big heart. She has been in foster in the UK for a little over a month and her confidence has come on leaps and bounds. She is now ready for her forever home.
Penny is initially nervous and cautious of people, but once she knows and trusts you she bonds quickly and is keen to be close to you. All she needs is someone who will be gentle and patient with earning her trust.
Penny really enjoys good-length walks and when she is excited she loves to do zoomies so she would love a home with a good-sized garden. Once she has spent her energy, she enjoys snuggling up with you on the sofa for some relaxation time.
She is a very intelligent, food-motivated dog who is eager to learn and would do well with training.
Once she is settled in and comfortable around you and her environment, she quickly comes out of her shell and you begin to see a sweet and entertaining character. Her tail is constantly wagging and she seizes every day!
She has bonded well with her doggy foster siblings, particularly her foster’s little resident female dog. Whilst she could be happy as an only dog if her adopter was home often, we think she would be happiest with another resident dog of similar size and energy levels.
Her foster home is her first experience of a home environment so she is still learning house rules and needs someone who will keep helping her understand what she can and cannot chew on. This is something we would expect all adopters to be happy to work with – it is what you can generally expect of puppies and any new dog in a new home.
At night Penny generally sleeps well although she will need some patience getting settled at first – a new place can be scary for any dog or human and she just needs patient and understanding adopters who will help her feel safe and happy in their home.
Her perfect home would be a generally calm house with a secure good sized garden, access to good walking spots and preferably not in a very built up area. She would do best with another dog and with an adopter that is home most of the time. Prior rescue experience is helpful but not necessary. Penny really will make such a wonderful companion for a lucky adopter.
