About Penny

Penny is a very sweet girl who loves affection. Once she got familiar with us and we gained her trust, she became a very loyal, curious happy dog. She loves to be around people once she is familiar with them, but is still standoffish with new people.

Penny needs a fenced yard, as she likes to explore. She also likes to eat plants and sticks, so should be watched carefully in new environment.

Because she comes from a hoarding situation, Penny had never been outside or on a leash before coming to us, but she is doing well on a leash now and enjoys walks! She’s only seen snow once, and was not impressed, and is definitely not used to the cold.

Penny's favourite pastimes are burrowing under blankets, sitting in the sun, and getting endless love and affection. She does well in a calm environment. Let her come to you and she will be such a loyal companion.

Why We Love Fostering

  • I love fostering because it's a great feeling knowing that I am helping dogs find their forever homes. Knowing that they are coming from shelters where they may never be seen, and helping them get adjusted to a home in Canada is an amazing feeling. Since I travel a lot, fostering allows me to get my doggie cuddles and nature hikes without the stress of owning one.
