Penny Lu
Dog: Penny Lu
Age: maybe 2 years old
Weight: 53 lbs
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Nicknames: Pen Pen
Good with other dogs?: Yes and no, she is possessive of her people but likes other dogs.  She can be pushy and try to intimidate other dogs when her humans are around.  We are working on this with her and she is improving.
Good with cats? Unknown, she will not be adopted to a home with cats
Good with children? Unknown, she will not be adopted to a home with children under about 8 years old
Activity Preference: Go with the flow, would like a walk a day, likes to play inside with her toys
IQ: Has her moments
Penny’s favorite things: Meal time! Lots of hugs, kisses and pets!
Penny is good at: meeting people, staying in a crate, riding in a car
Ideal home: currently a quiet home to allow Penny to go through her heart worm treatment, fenced yard
Health issues: Penny is heart worm positive.  Her first heart worm injection is scheduled in a few weeks.  The entire process from the start of antibiotics to coming off of activity restriction takes months.  Instead of keeping Penny in her foster home all of that time, we decided to try something a little different this time.  We are looking for her forever home where she can undergo her treatment and settle in and be cared for by her forever family forming that bond with them…not her foster family.  This will have to be a very special forever home.  This home will need to understand the process of the treatment and how to best care for Penny.  Of course, we would be there with you every step of the way, as would our vet who will be administering Penny’s care.


OMG!  If Penny could attach herself to you she would!  She is a total lovebug and one of the happiest dogs you will meet!  Her greetings are so full of pure joy to see you whether you were gone a few hours or minutes.   She adores her humans! There is nothing she wants more in this world then to be with you! When Penny came to her foster home she was a very scared girl who would shake and cower at almost everything!  Today, she’s so much more confident.  She’s found that toys are fun and not all humans are scary!  Penny will need to stay calm so playing with other young dogs is not something she can do for awhile.  She does live with older dogs who she tries to engage in play but they aren’t having it, which is a good thing for Penny right now.  She’s just as happy to follow her foster mom around and “help” around the house or yard or lay by her side.
