Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Wheaten Terrier (long coat)
Weight: 34 lbs
Height: 20 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/1/2019
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners
Special Needs: Penny is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Penny cannot have chicken. She is currently eating Pro Plan Sensitive Stomach with no chicken.
What kind of home would be best for me: Penny is looking for a home where she will be the only dog. She is too rough for small dogs, too curious about cats, and too indifferent to bigger dogs. She is young and needs plenty of exercise and activity. Penny would be great for active retirees or a couple eager for an active companion.
What is my personality like: Penny was born into rescue. Her mom Heart arrived in rescue pregnant and Penny and her siblings were raised in a loving foster home. She was adopted as a young puppy. Penny's home has had a lot of changes over the last year. Change is hard. Penny plays hard, and that can be too rough for smaller dogs. So Penny came back to rescue in 4/2021 to help find the right home for her.
Penny is a very sweet dog. She has been raised in a very loving home and it shows. She absolutely loves people and craves attention. Penny is somewhat of a loner when it comes to other dogs. She is okay with bigger dogs, but isn't interested in playing or interacting with them so far. Penny is highly treat motivated. She is smart and eager to please. Ironically, when it comes to breakfast and dinner, Penny prefers to take her time eating. Penny is clean in her crate and walks well on a leash.
Penny is calm and quiet in our rescue environment. She prefers being curled up at her caregivers' feet to playing in the fields. However, Penny has had a lot of change. She is confused by this environment after living her entire life in a home. Penny is a young dog that needs exercise and activity. She will benefit from one-on-one attention, lots of snuggles, and plenty of mental and physical stimulation.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Penny's birthday is 2/1/2019
House trained: 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.
