SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.
Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.
As for Penny:
Amazing adopter needed for an amazing dog! Penny’s foster parents can’t say enough good things about our sweet, sweet, sweet Penny. Penny is a special girl who needs an adopter who will be patient and understanding of her fear of new people. Penny is not the type of dog who enjoys “socializing” and meeting new people, however when it comes to her people at home, she is such a LOVE. It didn’t take Penny long to warm up in her foster home and once she did, her silly, playful, goofy, truly amazing personality began to shine. And did we mention snuggly? Penny is such a loving, sweet, affectionate dog, making her the all-time favorite of her foster parents.
Penny, nervous at first, may appear to be a low energy dog, but she is actually a very typical playful, fun, athletic young dog. She loves to run and play and enjoys her walks. Check out her video to see how well she is doing with leash walking. Penny is very food motivated and has proven to enjoy her training sessions very much. She is so super smart and would love a home who will continue with her training, as she absolutely loves it!

Penny also loves car rides, is housebroken and crate trained. Due to her general nervousness with new people, she will do best with a savvy adopter – and no kids. Also due to her intelligence and energy level, she will do best with someone who will continue to keep her mind and body engaged via both mental exercise (obedience and other activities) as well as regular physical exercise (hiking, jogging, etc.).
She is approx. 1.5 years old, spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org.
