Bio:
Penny is a quirky, complex little Border Terrier/Jack Russell mix with a big personality! She needs an experienced, adult family that has a sense of humor and doesnt mind a challenge. While Penny is both adorable and amusing, she is also very vulnerable, cautious, and serious. She was abandoned to a municipal shelter after she fell off the bed, but it seems likely she was abused. When Penny first arrived at Bideawee, this sensitive soul was so depressed that she had trouble eating, playing, or eliminating. She would yelp and cry due to a back injury. Penny had major spinal surgery funded by Bideawee and she is healing very nicely. She has come out of her shell quite a bit and will sit on our laps and play with squeaky toys. In fact, she loves her toys so much that she has a tendency to guard them by growling or snapping. Penny has clear preferences for (and against!) certain people, and she bonds strongly with her favorite caretakers. You should be comfortable taking the lead, otherwise she will try to take advantage and be the boss. This 3.5 year old is already housebroken and weighs just 16 pounds. She is very fearful of traffic and loud noises, so ideally she should live in the suburbs or the country. Penny would probably be fine living with another smaller dog, but she should not live with cats because she gets overly excited trying to play with them! Penny is really a very loveable, tough little cookie. We are certain that when the right family comes along, they will be smitten!
