SUCCESS STORY: PENNY

Penny was adopted early this fall and has definitely hit the jackpot with her new family.

Summer, her mom, tells us, “We adopted Penny from the shelter in September when she was about 7 months old. My 8 year old daughter had been saving her money to buy a Bloodhound and she was so thrilled to find one at the shelter that she could actually afford! She saw Penny jumping crazily in her kennel and it was love at first sight. Penny came home on September 21st and it’s been a whirlwind ever since. She is rambunctious, mischievous, sweet, and amazing with our two kids. We have an 8 year old chocolate lab so it’s been an adjustment going back to the puppy stage with a very large puppy! My house is always clean because well, if it fits, it goes in her mouth….like my car keys…that she dropped down the garbage disposal. She loves to play hide and seek. My daughter will hide in the house and yell “Penny, come find me!” and she runs through the house, knocking things over with her giant body and tail, until she finds my daughter. You always know because giggles erupt from the hiding spot as Penny jumps and licks her. One shake of the head and those slobbery jowls whip slobber from one side of the house to the other! We’ve found slobber on our TV, our couch, the kitchen counter, pretty much anywhere she goes. She always wants to be around my daughter and vice versa. I cannot wait to see their bond grow throughout the years. Penny is quite the dog who will forever lead our family on some interesting but hilarious adventures.”
