The saying goes, “Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.” We embraced this adage in the most literal sense when we discovered Penny. However, it seemed as though, in truth, it was Penny who found us. She is a complete stunner! With a contagious smile, adorable floppy ears and a bright white tummy that she proudly shows off when asking for belly rubs.

Upon our rescue team’s arrival in Macedonia, the standing agreement was that we could not accommodate any more dogs. However, rules are sometimes meant to be broken. Penny appeared outside our hotel room, and we gladly offered her some attention, quickly becoming endeared to her. Despite our attempts to send her away, she persisted, waiting patiently outside our door until our determination wavered—and ultimately, it did.

Penny is incredibly affectionate and adores snuggling up for some love. Though she’s about the size of a Labrador, she sees herself as a petite lap dog and will happily settle in your lap if you’re up for it. If not, she’s just as happy lying beside you, resting her head in your lap for some belly rubs. She has a very gentle nature and would be absolutely fine in a home with dog-savvy children. She was a model patient at her vet visit and is happy just to go with the flow.

She behaves exceptionally well around other dogs and would thrive in a forever home with another canine friend. Such an arrangement would be perfect, providing her with a playmate and a mentor. There are many resident cats around the kennels and Penny is happy just to watch them toddle about, she would happily accept a feline housemate. Penny would also be happy as the only animal in the home as long as there is plenty of time for cuddles.

Penny readily accepted a collar and lead, and she was comfortable being led around, which suggests she might have had a home previously. One thing is certain: she is not suited for a life on the streets. A home with a garden would be perfect so that she can potter about and sunbathe in the summer. Penny would enjoy a daily walk around the area so that she can have a good sniff and say hello to her neighbours.
