*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
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 have always loved animals and I spoil my own pets enough, so I figured "Why not try fostering?" That's when everything changed. I found that fostering is incredibly rewarding, because not only do you care and love each cat that comes into your home, but you get to send them to their furever homes and see the adopter’s faces light up when they meet them. Building the foundation of the kitties is what makes fostering such a wonderful experience. There is truly nothing better.
