Available Dog Penny Copper, STAR # 1396
“Hello my name is Penny Copper.

I am a shy but happy Red Tri-colored 50 lb. 4 year old spayed female. I am current on all of my vaccinations and microchipped.. Recently I had surgery for a collapsed palette and I feel so much better.. no more snorting !!..”

It has taken STAR a while to figure out just what Penny Copper is all about. Here’s HER story, and she’s stickin’ to it.

“3 months ago I came to STAR – folks I was a wreck. I had been with a family since I was 2 months old. They had great kids, and two other female dogs. I guess sometimes I got a little protective when those

‘other women’ got close to the kids. Then I needed surgery for an elongated palette, so off to STAR I went. STAR got me looking beautiful; they’re the best.

In the midst of all my stuff my foster Mom had to undergo her own surgery so I was transferred back and forth between foster homes for a while. Now I’m being looked up and down by a new lady who’s watching a ‘hot spot’ on my side (it has healed and the hair is coming back nicely, thank you) .

I have some things to confess. When I meet new people I bark, but I settle down real quick – I just want them to know I’m around. When I meet new dogs SOMETIMES I say ‘grrr’, but I let them come in and play anyway . When someone runs by the yard I run with them and bark. I think it’s normal dog stuff, because my foster dogs do it too. This foster Mom says I’m an ‘angel’. I go to doggie daycare and they think I’m ‘precious…….’ So I must be getting the picture.

I can’t live in an apartment because I do bark. I’ll stay close to you, I’ll be the best pal you’ll ever have, to know me is to love me, so COME ON OVER to Cypress – I’m settled and waiting for a home with a loving Mom, or Dad, maybe a pal or two to play with, and I promise to be a perfect girl ‘most of the time’. Fill out an application I’m waiting……”
