What kind of home would be best for me: Penny is used to being the apple of her owner's eye and she is looking for that again. We think Penny will do well in a variety of homes. She knows how to be a dog and would be great for new owners. If she is part of a pack, she expects to be the queen and would be great for a pup seeking a confident friend. She can occasionally be snippy with other dogs and can protect her food. She's all pekingese!
What is my personality like: Penny is a confident princess. Penny loves to play - both with toys and with other dogs. Penny is great on a leash and loves to go for walks. She is a little nervous in cars and prefers to be held or crated. She does not much like company in her house and won't let a stranger touch her in the house. Get her out of the house and she is just fine.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and affectionate, Penny will eagerly sit in a nearby lap!
Tips and Tidbits: October 31, 2014. Penny hates to take medications and you have to have some patience to do that. She can eat around a pill in a pill pocket and even with home made food, she can pick through what she wants to discard what she does not want.
Penny needs her own space to eat in. She eats until she is comfortable but does not always finish her meal. When she is finished eating, she will lay next to her bowl to guard it so simply pick it up.
Thunderstorms and fireworks scare her, Penny has her own thundershirt to handle those loud noises.
House trained: Penny is pee pad trained and will also go on a towel or rug, too. She mistakes them for puppy pads. Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
