This six-year-old is tiny and spunky! Just look at those expressions! She is a beautiful dog and she’s calm and quiet. She would be better in a home without small children, but is ok with other dogs. And look at those winks!
I bet you’re wondering why such a cutie is having a tough time getting adopted! Well… Penny’s a little socially awkward (tiny dog, big personality). And if she doesn’t know you well, she might try to nip at your fingers (hence the no kids rule). And she has a heart murmur.
That said, there is a dog for everyone, and you might be that match! For her adoption information, go here.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here. Also, special shout out to Lucy & Co. for donating all of the amazing bandanas!
