My name is Penny. I am just about to celebrate my 2nd birthday next month. Not to brag, but it is quite possible that I am the most fun loving dog you will ever meet. Lucky for you, I am on a mission to find my perfect forever home.
As you can see, I am very, very cute.
I love the outdoors.
I always sneak in cuddles when I can (especially in matching pajamas!).
And occasionally, and always in moderation, I like to sniff (and lick) a great bottle of wine.
Let’s cut to the chase. I do have a uniqueness to me that sets me apart from my other canine friends that you cannot see in pictures. For starters, I have been in foster care for almost my entire life. When I was born, things seemed pretty normal. At three (3) months old, I was diagnosed with diabetes. It was at this point I was brought to the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk and then placed with my foster family while we worked to get my insulin and blood sugars under control. Learning to manage this autoimmune disease took a long time and it was hard work. Unfortunately, the diabetes also compromised the majority of my vision. Although that may sound terrible, it really isn’t. This is my normal. I have learned to overcome any challenge given to me and I won’t give up until the problem is solved!
Fortunately for me, I was placed in a foster home with a mom and dad who have continuously given me so much love and support that I am now thriving and ready for my new home. There are no words thank them enough for all of their love, patience, kindness and the exceptional care they have given to me to make me the young pup I am today. In spite of my challenges, I am a lucky girl.
Now, I should mention one other little caveat. Because my vision is so poor, I would not necessarily do well having other dogs or small children in my new home. As you can imagine, it can be scary and confusing not to be able to clearly see the environment around me.
So there you have it, I have completely and honestly bared my furry, four-legged soul to you. I will need a little bit of help from my human family but I am hoping that does not scare you. I truly am a fun-loving, active, easy going dog that has a lot of love to give. Did I mention that I am potty trained and can actually ring the doorbell when I need to go out? How about that I am crate trained? And…I have an amazing singing voice. Seriously. I just filled out my application for America’s Got Talent last week.

Until then, please follow all of my adventures on here on my blog as I continue to search for my forever home. I am excited for this journey to begin!
Sending you lots of love,
Your lucky Penny xoxoxox
