Meet Penny V (New Digs)!

Hello world! Meet curious Penny V. This smart and playful border collie mix is ready to explore from sunup to sundown on her daily walks or in the backyard (we nicknamed her “Lizard Hunter” because she loves to chase them around). She also loves to run and chase with other pups but then snuggles up with her humans at night.

Penny does need special attention. She gets nervous with new people (aka stranger danger), but she has been working on it with continuous training and Reconcile anxiety medication. She is very treat-motivated and has a proven track record of winning over new humans through repeat introductions, especially outside of your home. All she needs is patience and some grace! Today she loves boarding and doggie daycare, where she can play with other pups or get head scratches from their staff. Once you are in the circle of trust, you have a friend for life.

Though we have loved having Penny as part of our family, she needs a family that can devote more time to her needs and training. Her current home has two small kids, which can be too loud for her. She does better with adults who like to be active but can enjoy a slow morning every now and then. Her dream home also has a backyard, where she can watch the trees for squirrels or snooze in the sun.

Penny is a sweet girl, who has been and continues to be a wonderful companion. Once you build her trust, she will love you forever. She is up to date on all vaccinations and is in good health. Help us find our girl her forever home!
