February is Black Dog and Cat Syndrome Awareness Month.  Statistics show that black cats and dogs are less likely to be adopted than other pets.
Why? We can’t figure it out.  Some have said that the reason could be because lighter animals generally photograph better, and therefore get more attention on adoption websites.  Whatever the reason, people are missing out on great pets.. like Penny.

Penny xmas

Penny is a cute 14 month old mixed pup aprox. 35lbs that is just perfect for a family.  She is good with kids and other dogs.  She loves to play with toys and go on long walks but is happy to hang out on the couch when its time to relax.

Penny in repose

Penny has learned so much and is ready to be a great family member.  She knows basic commands like sit, down and off.  She is potty trained and crate trained.

Penny would love to have another dog to play with or play dates with neighborhood dogs.

Most of all you should adopt Penny because she is super cute and super smart.  Apply to adopt Penny HERE.
