Described as “an adorable ankle-biter and all-around snarky Chihuahua,” Penny is six years old and six pounds.
“Penny is a bit of a nutcase…socially awkward,” the profile explains. “She also really likes her stuff. And by ‘her stuff’ we mean, if you try to take things away from her, she’ll resist. Like full-on Che Guevara resistance. All she needs is the beret.”
In the plus column, Penny loves walks, fetch, and car rides. Her fosters know the perfect-for-Penny home exists: “Somewhere out there is someone whose life will be better with Penny, and god love you for it! Someone that she’ll make laugh every day and someone whose lap she’ll keep warm. We’re going to find that person. And they’ll be so happy when we do.”
As for the strategy behind Penny’s new profile, “After three months in foster care, Penny’s fosters have had enough sugar-coating with potential adopters, who hear about Penny’s behavior and go running for the hills,” explains Kate Mudge, Executive Director of Pet Haven. “So they’ve decided to be up-front about Penny’s not-so-friendly side so adopters know just what they’re applying for.”
Penny’s fosters are hoping this eye-catching, brutally honest profile will help Penny adopted in time for Valentine’s Day. Pet Haven has also reduced her adoption fee to just $14 through 2/14.
