Adoptable Dog of the Week- Penny

This unique girl would love nothing better than to find a furever home! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Penny, a two years old Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound) and Bullmastiff mix from Lansing, Michigan. She’s spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and housetrained. Penny does well with other dogs but has yet to be tested around cats or children.

Penny’s Tale

When she was first rescued and went to a foster home, Penny was a timid, insecure pooch. She never rode in a car before, and she wasn’t great on a leash- everything was new for this lovely girl. But, once she graduated from a training program, Penny found her confidence and learned some basic commands. She’s housebroken, behaves great on a lead, and crate trained. In fact, Penny loves her crate as it’s her safe space. During the night or when her humans are at work, she’ll happily curl up and go to sleep in her little nook!

While she’s grown into a much more relaxed and confident pooch, Penny still might be a little shy when she first meets you. Of course, as soon as she warms up to you, you’ll see what a cuddle bug this little lady is! She loves being in the center of attention, snuggles, and to wiggle her cute little butt.

Penny didn’t have a chance to meet children or cats in her foster home, but she lives with dogs and gets along great with them. Ideally, her new furry roommates would have a similar temperament as she does and be medium-sized. As Penny is still a young dog, she will need a four-legged playmate or an active owner that will make sure she gets enough exercise. A fenced yard is also a must because as a sighthound, Penny might be tempted to chase out after something she finds interesting.

PS. Although she doesn’t look like it, Penny really is a Borzoi and Bullmastiff mix- one of her cousins had a DNA test to prove it.

If you think Penny sounds like she would fit in with your family, contact Animal Placement Bureau for more information.
