Pennyrescue Hi my name is Penny!  I am a very pretty sable Sheltie, about 2-3 years of age and I need a home.   I have tons of energy and a performance home would be perfect for me.  I need a job, so someone who is into agility or herding or even jogging would be awesome!  I am so intelligent that I learned to sit in one training session.

Although I can be shy at first, I’ll warm up to you & want those wonderful belly rubs that are SO enjoyable.  Unfortunately, the cat I reside with right now has decided I’m her enemy, so due to this (and it wasn’t my fault), I don’t like cats.  I will be fine as an only dog, but do get along okay with my foster brother and sisters, so if you have another dog, that works for me! 

Penny2I definitely require a fenced yard and I’d be best with no young children under the age of 14.  I walk nicely on a leash (I love to walk!!!I) but need someone willing to give me a couple of weeks to just “be” and take my time to trust them.

If you think you could give me a home, contact my awesome fostermom Julie, for more information.   Applications are also available at

UPDATE 8/26/10: Penny has been officially adopted! :)

    Still thinking about Penny and hoping we will be considered to adopt her. Give her a hug for us!

    Please keep in touch if someone closer to you does not adopt Penny. I will check with our local agility trainers here in Florence SC to see if they know of anyone. I want her to have a wonderful home!
