Great Pup Named Penny Needs A Home & Family
I always look forward to Tuesdays to see what home we can find for our weekly adoptable pet. This morning, Kate from Tri County Humane Society introduced us to Penny, a pretty cool little pup.
Meet Penny! This beautiful girl was brought to TCHS because she needed extra training her family was unable to provide. Penny has lived with children in her previous home but would likely do best in a home with older children who can respect her boundaries . Lived with cats and did well with them- sometimes she would try to play with them too much.
Will likely do best in a home without other dogs as she was said to have resource guarding issues with another dog. Can be a little wary of new people at first but seems to warm up quickly! Slow and proper introductions over time are always recommended with any resident pets and people. In her previous home Penny was said to have some food and resource guarding behaviors- although she has not presented these while at the shelter.
Ask a staff member for more tips on how to set Penny up for success in her new home! Penny is crate trained and used to being crated while her people were gone during the day. Potty trained and will go stand by the door to let you know she needs to be let outside.
As always a consistent potty schedule is best to avoid any accidents. Like a true coonhound Penny loves to dig and jump!- she should never be left outside unattended even in a fenced in yard as she may jump over or dig herself out.
She is a high energy girl who loves to follow her nose- she would love an active family who will take her on daily walks/hikes. Her previous owners said she loves to cuddle and be pet.
Penny should be fed a high quality diet in measured portions to keep her body in tip top shape! This wiggly butt cannot wait to find her fur-ever home! ~~ Weighs 59 pounds. Thank you to Dr. Thomas Rohman for spaying Penny
