Hi! My name is Penny and I'm looking for someone to love and commit to me forever. I am a very easy going and gentle girl. I am a lap dog and just want to be close to my human. Taking walks and spending time outside are also hobbies of mine-I could be a great running buddy!

I tend to be on the shy side at first but my foster mom says she's very impressed with how much I've come out of my shell and blossomed since moving in. I am great with other dogs and cats and am comfortable living with them! I tend to follow my mom around at home because I love her so much! If you want a lap dog who also loves to be your little shadow, I'm the girl for you.

I am mild energy and will happily spend time lounging around with you or accompanying you during park activities and car rides. I am house trained and usually wait for permission to come up onto the bed or couch. I have also done well with young kids. I typically prefer older, calmer kids, but I won't react to youngins and will just get up and walk away if they begin to annoy me.

My foster mom says the ideal home for me would be with someone who will give me the love and attention I crave in a safe and consistent environment. I would do well with a family or a single person, but another dog in the home would be great so I have another puppy friend who could also give me confidence and show me the ropes when I'm unsure of things.

I am currently working on my leash skills since I like to walk in front and also get distracted with all the new smells and like to stop a bunch to check them out. If you're ready for the sweetest and most loyal companion you could ever have, make a *change* in your life with Penny today!
Come meet your new best friend
