Meet Penny!  This sweet lab/terrier mix came to the shelter with puppies a few months back and was in rough shape. Now that she's feeling better, she is ready to find her forever family and enjoy all that life has to offer! At 55 lbs and 6 years old, Penny would make a great house guest and is still up for lots of fun!


Penny will need a family who can take her on long walks and let her play with her dog friends at the dog park. But mostly, she wants a family full of expert snuggles and treat givers! She'll be happy to go to obedience school and learn new tricks with you. And then, when you've had all the fun you can have in a day, she'll snuggle up with you for a good movie and belly rub on the couch!


Penny would be a great addition to an existing pack. Or she'd be happy to soak up all your love and attention as an only dog! She just wants to be part of a family! We haven't seen her interact with cats or kids yet, so let us know if you have any and we can find out how she does.  Like most shelter dogs, Penny may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.


Penny  has tested positive and has been treated for Heartworm disease.  Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites.  Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.

The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Meghan at!
