Meet Pennywise

Initially adopted at 8 weeks old, Pennywise unfortunately had to be surrendered into our foster care due to home circumstance after only a short time.

Now six months old, beautiful Pennywise very quickly adapted to her new environment and has proved to be super friendly with any people she meets; in fact she seems to love everybody! She is now also living with four other dogs and gets along with them famously. She had experience of living happily with her original owner’s children as well.

Penny (for short) is a quick learner and bonded very quickly with her human family. She comes when called and sits for her meals. Her training, of course, is a work in progress and she still has all her lovely puppy traits; she particularly loves to run, play fetch with a stick and she enjoys lots of cuddles.

Penny is a wonderful dog, easy going and very loving and would make a great family pet as well as a companion for another dog. A Staffy cross, she is already a medium size dog and we anticipate she will turn out to be slightly bigger than a Labrador (although half the weight) when fully grown. Because she is such a large puppy, she would not suit a family with very young children.

Pennywise is microchipped and vaccinated, and will shortly be de-sexed.

Pennywise is looking forward to being welcomed into a furever home, with lots of walks and the opportunity learn new training tricks in return for her loving devotion. If you would like to meet this special girl, please text or call her carer, Margaret, on 0418 208 583, to arrange a visit at her foster home in Leichhardt.
