Penny’s looks are striking and if that weren’t enough, she has the most adorable head tilt.

Some of Penny’s favorite things are being on the receiving end of lots of petting and affection, enjoying the great outdoors while running around in the backyard, going for walks, chewing on her chew bones, and playing with her toys (this girl REALLY loves to play). And, because of Penny’s love for the great outdoors (and because she’s in such great shape) we think she would make a terrific hiking partner.

When it comes to training, Penny is the trifecta. She loves treats, she’s intelligent, and she’s eager to please which makes training easy and fun. Since coming to TFP, Penny and her foster mom have worked with a private trainer getting down the basics.

Sometimes when Penny sees unfamiliar dogs or people, she may bark until she gets to know them. However, once she warms up, everyone is her friend especially when they shower her with lots of petting (as mentioned, one of Penny’s favorite things). Penny and her foster mom have been working one-on-one with a trainer teaching Penny to look to her foster mom for guidance in situations involving unfamiliar people and/or dogs. Both Penny and her foster mom have done great with this training.

As we’ve said, Penny loves to play. There are times when Penny can become a little overzealous playing. Because of this it is probably best if she were in a home with older, dog savvy children and not children who may not be steady on their feet.

Penny is crate trained and she has THE best crate manners. She’s polite and easy when asked to crate. Once crated, she’s quiet and quite content. Penny is known to voluntary go into her crate for some chill time and to relax when she wants a break from the hustle and bustle of family life/activity.

Penny is completely housebroken. She will let you know when she needs to go outside to go “potty” by either following you around the house or waiting by the door. 

If you think Penny sounds like a match for your family, fill out an application to make her a member of yours!
