The family that adopts our little lucky Penny will be very happy because she is such a little sweetheart. She came to us from another rescue that thought the Kootenay’s would be a great place for her to find a home. She sleeps all night in her crate without making a peep. She loves her walks on a leash without ever pulling. She will do short or long walks and loves to play with her toys. But if you sit down her favourite place is on your lap. She is such a snuggler.

A fenced yard would be preferred but not necessary because Penny is happy to do her business outside on a leash and prefers to stay close to you.

Penny has been very social with children on the street so a family with dog savvy children could be fine. Though she is small and weighs 10 lbs so babies and toddlers may be a concern. She is a quiet dog but will tell you if someone is at the door. Penny loves to play with other small dogs and loves to play with the resident small dog in her foster home. But we have found she is not comfortable around large dogs and is reactive to them. So if her new family has a large dog that is an issue that we know they would have to be willing to work on.

Penny has been spayed, microchipped, vet checked and up to date on her vaccines. If you are interested in adopting Penny, please click the link above to reach the application form. KAAP adoptions include a reference check and home visit to insure our dogs are going to the very best homes. Due to this, we will be giving preference to applicants from the West Kootenay region. We reserve the right to select, in our view, the applicant that is the best match; not first come/first served.  The adoption fee for Penny is $400. Completed applications are required to meet Penny in her foster home.
