Penny was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via breeder release.  Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving pet home to be spoiled and live out her life as a cherished pet!

Penny is a sweet, quiet girl who loves a good scratch. So far, she doesn't seem to prefer snuggles but will allow you to pick her up and scratch her until she is ready to get down. She loves chew toys and is finding squeaky toys a very entertaining past time. She also loves to outside and explore the yard! She has gotten along well with every human she has met, including children, and has done very well with the other dogs in her foster home, too!  She has not been around cats while in foster care so we will be looking for a home without feline friends in her forever home, to err on the side of caution.

Penny is currently still working on potty training.  She has been doing pretty good with going potty outside, a regular and consistent schedule will help with her continued potty training in her new home.  As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her.  She has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in her kennel during the night or when her foster family happens to leave the home.  For her safety, we recommend that she keep a similar crating schedule when her humans are away from the home and/or she is left unsupervised, so she is safe and secure while no one is home.  She does not know danger and is still learning what is expected of her inside the home. 

Medically, Penny seems to be in great health!  She has been spayed, heartworm tested, microchipped, had a dental and is updated on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! 

Penny would do well in almost any type of home! She handles stairs easily so a home with stairs would be just fine for her. She is currently living in a ground floor apartment so her potty breaks are on a leash. She loves a fenced yard, too but is ready to go inside after a little while. We also think she'd love to go work with her new family if they wanted to take her with them to the office! She loves to meet new people!  If her people are not able to take her to work with them, no problem - she's completely happy sleeping the day away in her kennel as long as her people can arrange a mid-day potty break for her!  

If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Penny, please submit an adoption application for her today!!

NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application.  We typically give a week for a "grace period" for new applications to come in on any newly available dog in order to give everyone a fair chance to submit an application.  After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc.  :-)  Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another.  We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete.   That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-) 

IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter.  In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)

ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply!  While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed. 

If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
