Penny is a belly rub and couch cuddle loving pup ready for a home!


The basics

  • My name is Penny
  • On my last birthday, I was 2
  • I am a girl
  • I've been homeless since November 4, 2019

The good stuff

  • My best trick is giving my belly for rubs. You might not think that's a trick, but it takes talent to roll over and show my bodacious belly!
  • Me in three words: sweet, sweet, sweet...get the picture?
  • How I feel about other critters: I love other dogs and am okay with the kitty kind, too!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to be with my humans - whether we're playing in the yard, taking a walk or cuddling on the couch. Now they just need to discover me!
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: someone who is home with me often or takes me with them when they go out. I'm such an easy-going girl, and am equally happy going for a hike with you in the woods or snuggling on the couch. Mostly I want someone who will love me and let me love them back...lots!! Oh, and did I mention that I graduated from prison dog-training school? Adopt me so I can so you my mad skills!

    Hi, my name is Brenda. I have some questions. Does Penny have any health issues currently? What breed is she? Is she house broken? Does she bark a lot? Do you know if she’s good with children? My, almost 5 year old granddaughter visits sometimes. My adult son lives with me. He is home most of the time when I’m not so Penny wouldn’t be alone very often or very long at all. I do have a 4 foot fence around my yard. We live next to the woods. There are many neighbors who walk their dogs so socializing won’t be a problem either. I’m was a reserve in the Marine Corp form 1980 to 1986. I have had other dog friends in the past. I’m looking for a small to medium size dog that I can pick up. I use to get large dogs but they tend to suffer hip dysplasia. I want a friend that I will have a good amount of years with. Most large dogs don’t have long life spans. My last was Balto, a husky, he was older than what I was told at the shelter, that’s what the vet said. My vet said I had to let him go. It was very hard to do. He was with me for about 3 years. I live in Lansdowne, Maryland. Are there any associated costs with adopting Penny if she’s still available?
