"For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo... "
While this may be so, Penny Lynne's early days left a lot to be desired-she was alone and afraid. She had a litter of puppies that caught distemper and did not survive. She was skinny, and her coat was rough. Of course, unlike the Bard's tale, her story gets decidedly more upbeat.

These days, Penny is healthy and happy. Her coat has regained shine, and she is intelligent and sensitive. She is really good at figuring out what her people want her to do. She mastered the doggie door in record time, walks on the lead, hikes, runs with her foster dad-she does it all.

Penny is still a little shy when she first meets people, as she hasn't always had the best luck, but once she knows you are okay, she gets pretty silly and very affectionate.

Penny likes to play with her foster brother but is a pretty quiet soul. Once she knows you are her people, she likes lots of affection.

She does great in her kennel and gets along well with her three foster siblings-a Chihuahua, a terrier, and a shepherd mix. Penny is a great size-small enough for an apartment and easy road trips, but big enough for hikes, runs, and couch snuggles.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
