Yahoo - my name is Penny and I am a high-octane gal looking for an active home. I am guessing it may have been my hound-dog nose that caused me to wander and I ended up as a stray at WCHS. Now I am looking for a new home to call my very own. I am full of youthful vim and vigor and am all about exercising both body and brain. I am reliably game for whatever you've got in mind, from taking agility classes to hiking to bonding while learning new tricks. I will thrive in an active home where continued training is part of the fun. I LOVE to play with other dogs but they need to match my energy level and play-style; I can be a bit over the top and pushy. If my new home has a dog, we will definitely need to meet to ensure we are a good match to cohabitate. Cats are definitely a no-no for me, though - I am way too interested in felines and would torment them relentlessly. Any children in my new home should be 10 years or older because I lack manners and get hyper so I could accidentally knock smaller kids over. I also need the whole family to partake in my training. I need lots of exercise, a routine and training every day. I also need to practice settling down and being calm; maybe focus classes would be helpful. I would love to take classes with you; play mentally stimulating games or carrying a backpack during our walks together. When I am eating, if someone comes near, I start to inhale my food. I do not get mad but I take large mouthfuls and eat very quickly. I think a slow-feed bowl might help me to relax during mealtime and savor my food a bit. I have magnificent manners with valuable resources like rawhides; you can hold onto it while I enjoy it or I will bring it to you if you ask. I do need to practice accepting treats more gently; I appreciate it if you remind me to be gentle. I enjoy you touching me all over but I get really excited and hyper; 51 pounds of crazy pup all over the place. Perhaps another area where you could help me practice calming down and being focused? I know I will be a perfect fit for the right family; one who loves lots of activity and adventure. Come by to meet me in person and discover my dazzling brilliance; my energy is contagious.
