All About Me
Pennie Lane is a very sweet, cuddly, energetic pup who enjoys people and dogs alike. Whether running, playing chase, or sniffing around the yard, with dogs big and small, Pennie loves them all. She picks up on their cues and encourages them to play, especially Keep Away! However, her people are always her biggest priority, and while playing she likes to periodically check in that her people are still there and OK. Pennie adores being petted and fancies herself a lap dog! She especially loves sitting in the deck chair when the sun is out.
Pennie walks well on a leash and is learning basic commands. She is working on house-training and is doing well with crate-training. Like most puppies, when not being supervised, Pennie needs to be in a crate or corral. She sleeps overnight in her crate without a peep and has no accidents in her crate so long as she gets a potty break every 4 hours.
Given her younger age, Pennie's future adopter must understand her need for stimulation and a consistent routine. Pennie requires either 3 walks a day, or a fenced yard where she can play and run. Her current puppy routine during the day is up to 4 hours crated, then some supervised playing (with potty breaks), then repeat. Eager to learn and food-motivated, Pennie will continue to blossom with further training.
Pennie has a beautiful red-fawn coat with black tiger stripes that create a brindle appearance. The mostly symmetrical stripes meet on her nose, which creates a lovely darkening effect down her face. She has white feet, a white chest, and a little white on her chin. Her ears are floppy when she perks them up, otherwise they fall back down her neck.
Pennie Lane is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed. When Pennie was found, her right hind leg had been broken in three places and mostly healed. Fortunately, an orthopedic vet said it does not negatively impact her mobility, so no surgical treatment is recommended. That diagnosis and recommendation was confirmed by a second orthopedic vet. Other than an occasional misstep, Pennie is not affected by this injury. She currently takes Cosequin joint supplements and Myos muscle mass supplements, which she will need until she is fully grown, if not longer.
Pennie Lane and her brother were found as strays and served their stray hold before coming into IAR.
