Penny is an amusing and delightful little 3-year old Rat Terrier mix who will make you a sweet and loving companion. She is house trained and very well behaved. Inside the house, she is very calm unless she is enticed to play. When she plays, she is energetic and very agile, but never rough. She loves to run and play outside with her canine foster siblings. She enjoys rides in the car and walks on the leash. She is nervous when she meets new people and new dogs but after getting used to new folks she delights in being their friend since that means one more lap to sit on. (She really is a very affectionate little girl!) New dogs also take some getting used to, especially ones who are bigger than she is (Penny weighs 12 lbs.) and who play more rough than she is used to. Penny obeys commands well and is a very quick and willing learner. She is also crate trained and will often go in on her own to relax or sleep inside, as she feels very secure there. Penny does have severe allergies that cause her tremendous itchiness. So far a number of causes have been ruled out, but the the quest for answers continues, and in the meantime she patiently wears clothing and even an e-collar to protect her skin. Penny is seeking an understanding adopter who is committed to finding a solution to her allergies so that she can spend her time doing what she does best.... being a delightful, loving companion!
