In the beginning of May this year at 4am, it suddenly started to pour outside. The rescuer opened the window to check on the rain, and that’s when she spotted Penny, just hiding by the neighbour’s garage door. She’s a dog that was part of the TNR program. The rain was so heavy that the rescuer took her in for the night. Seeing how friendly she is, the rescuer decided to rehome Penny.
She’s quiet, people oriented, and calm. She loves it when the rescuer calls her name in a high pitched voice. She runs over with a helicopter tail for pets. She walks very well on leash. She dislikes being petted on the chin, and would turn around and walk away. Sometimes when the rescuer pets her, Penny would have an expression as if she couldn’t believe that she deserves such kindness. Penny is also food driven and loves rolling on the grass!
