Approx Age:  2 years
Dachshund  mix 
Female, spayed

Penny is a pert 12 lb., 2 year old Dachshund mix who arrived at a local animal shelter as a stray who had probably had at least one litter in the past. She is now in a Dusty Paws foster home scheduled to be spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

Penny is equal parts sweet and playful. She is always pretending to be a model, posing with a front paw pointed to get your affection. A gentle, quiet girl, she loves to snuggle in your lap. Although she can be a bit shy at first, especially around men, she soon warms up with some one-on-one time. She is easygoing and just wants to make her people happy.

Penny is also a real dog's dog. She easily makes friends with other small dogs and is happy to spend time lounging and playing with her furry friends. Or she will entertain herself with chew toys. She is making fast progress in house training in her foster home and sleeps soundly in her crate at night. She is already working on learning to fetch.

Note! Any inquiries about this companion animal will only be answered after completion of an on-line application. You will be contacted by a Dusty Paws Representative within 24 hours after receipt of your application.
