Penny is a gorgeous five year old rough coat terrier who adores people and all the love and attention they have to give, she enjoys being a close companion to her human, following them around the house as they go about their daily chores. Penny shows some signs of separation anxiety if she can’t be close by with her human when they are at home. Eg, she likes to sleep in the same room as her human where possible but over time she has learned to settle in her own area when required.
Penny settles well on car trips, enjoys a walk in the park, loves to pull the eyes out of her teddy bears and chew up her toys in record time, but most of all she just loves to hang out with her people rolling on her back for a good long scratch on the chest or for a little game of ‘I’m want to clean your face with my tongue!’ .
Penny shows signs of not having the easiest of life, the loss of her right eye and a large tooth due to an unknown trauma or accident, her cowering manner when a voice is raised or when she perceives that she is doing ‘wrong’. Penny is a little timid with people to begin with but as the days pass, she has shown some significant progress whilst in foster care as she settles into her daily routine and becomes more familiar and relaxed with her carer, visitors, other small canines and her environment in general.
Penny shares her foster home multiple other small dogs, she isn’t overly interactive with her canine friends but does tolerate them without any major incident. Penny can be a little bit growly when another dog gets too close to her personal space, usually when she’s in her bed or resting; however, she has shown no signs of taking her growl any further and will often avoid closeness to other dogs, at least until she gets to know them. Continued observation is advised until she settles into her new home where there is another small canine companion.
Penny is not without a few struggles due to her unknown past experiences but she is a gorgeous girl that just wants to be loved and give love in return. She would prefer a family that isn’t away from home for long hours as well as having a calm, non confrontational canine friend that can respect her personal space when necessary.
Penny is extremely clean and very well housetrained, she knows some basic commands and her coat is easy care, only requiring a quick brush each week and the occasional clip back if required.
If you are understanding, are experienced with minor behavioural issues and are looking for a loyal companion who has an abundance of love to give, then Penny could be the lady for you.
Missing right eye but has no negative impact on her overall health and well being.
