Penny is a sweet young gal looking for a very special family to call her own. She loves being around her people no matter what the activity; hiking, car rides, cuddling, she does it all with gusto. She is diabetic, and it has affected her eyesight, but it hasn't diminished her positive attitude or need for adventure. Because of her eyesight, she would prefer to be the only pet in a new home without small children. The less commotion and surprises the better, as far as she's concerned. Penny is quite talented and even knows how to ring the doorbell! This happy girl can't wait to fill a new home with love and affection.

Dogs with diabetes, like Penny, rely on a special diet, insulin and regular veterinary visits to keep them healthy and happy. Based on Penny's current care, the cost for her insulin, syringes and food is $2/day.

Penny's new people will want to establish a good relationship with a veterinarian right away to keep her healthy - the AWS Community Veterinary Clinic has tended to Pennys' care for the last 2 years. Our veterinarians would be happy to keep Penny on as a patient when she's adopted.
