After spending almost two years in isolation in a New Jersey shelter, Penny is learning what it's like to be a dog again. Happy and wiggly with people she knows, she's understandably scared of strangers, especially men. Sometimes she'll flinch when you first pet her, but quickly relaxes under your gentle touch. After being alone for so long, Penny loves spending time with her human and doggy friends.
She's very playful with other dogs, but can become over-stimulated. And she's especially fearful if there's a barrier between her and a stranger. Born in 2008, Penny is in good health.
She needs a dog-savvy person who can teach her about love. Could you change her life by making her your lucky Penny?
As part of our Single* pets adoption special, Penny qualifies for free adoption and a free flight to her new home!
