Meet Penny

Penny is a lovely natured older girl. She is in pretty good health for her age except she has some hearing loss and has dry eye, so drops need to be given twice a day. Penny is great with other dogs, she tends to ignore them on first meeting but once she gets to know the other dogs in the household she plays with them and really enjoys their company. Penny is great with kids and loves people, a very social girl, she can easily be defined as a lap dog and she enjoys following her humans around and getting cuddles. Penny is fully housetrained and has a shih tzu coat that requires regular grooming. If you think you have a forever home for Penny to retire to then please contact us today.

Penny is in care at Kurrajong

Penny was adopted on 19 May 2013 after 1.3 years in foster care
