Penny Lane came to CAPE from the Santa Cruz County Shelter. She was picked up as a stray from the Watsonville area. Penny arrived at the shelter very scared. Her demeanor suggested that she was not very well socialized with people. Penny began formative training with the shelter's dog behaviorist and now her personality is beginning to shine. She has learned special words for redirection which are straightforward and can easily be taught to her new family. Penny is house trained and crate trained and is sleeping all night without a peep. Penny can be crated for up to four hours per day during the work week. Penny is young and has plenty of playful energy. In fact, Penny has experimented with "counter-top surfing" and thinks it is quite fun, so a close eye on her when food is present is a must. Penny loves other dogs both large and small. Her foster mom feels she would be happiest in a home with no cats and children over the age of 13.
Penny is a two year old, spayed Beagle mix who weights about 20 lbs. She loves to play with dogs, and would prefer a home with another dog she can play with.
Here is a note we recently received from Penny's foster mom giving us an update on how Penny is doing: Each day when I come home, Penny greets me by bringing me my slippers. When we go outside for potty breaks she brings me my outdoor shoes!! 😃Very cute and funny since earlier in her time with us, she ate a pair of slippers. She was very smart when she ate them, eating the left shoe of one pair and the right slipper of another pair, This left me with a pair of slippers, except that they don't match, I think it is so funny when she brings me my slippers or flip flops. She is doing great with potty training, she may have one accident a day now and sometimes none. She is full love and energy!! If you would like more information about Penny please call 831-336-4695. We also invite you to fill out the CAPE Dog Adoption Application.
