In shelter Dog

Glastonbury, CT, 06033
Pet name:
Black Mouth Cur
Penny is a sweet-natured, gorgeous girl with golden eyes that match the color of her fur. She somehow found herself lingering at a Louisiana shelter for months. Once she was rescued and placed in a foster home, her foster mom can’t imagine how this wonderful girl ever ended up at a shelter.  Penny is 2-3 years old and weighs in at 52 lbs.  We think she is a Black Mouth Cur mix.  

Pennys foster mom says, "Penny is good with other dogs and is best friends with her current foster dog sister. They enjoy wrestling together, trading out chew bones and just hanging out. Penny loves human attention also and loves to snuggle with her people as well.  Her ideal home would have another dog who she could pal around with but she would also likely be ok as the only dog as long as she gets plenty of human interaction. If she were the only dog, a home where someone is home a lot would be preferred. She has been around rambunctious young children (6 years old) for brief amounts of time and did ok but would likely do best with older kids, if any. She has not been around cats. 

She loves to go for walks and does great on a leash. She enjoys sunning herself when the weather is nice so a secure fenced yard would be a plus. She also likes to get brushed. She has a laid back personality but does have her moments when she gets excited like when you come home from being gone, when it’s doggie playtime and when she knows she’s about to go walking. She’s always happy and her tail never stops wagging. She seems to be house-trained as there have been no accidents in the house. She does stay in a crate when we are gone but may bark when you first leave so an apartment may not be the best option for her if crated. She’s an awesome girl and will be a wonderful companion for a lucky family! Please email us at to apply for pretty Penny!!

Penny at the shelter before she was rescued:

Penny is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and current on heartworm/flea prevention.  Upon rescue, she did test positive for heartworm, but is almost done with treatment and will be heartworm free and ready for a forever home in mid-June.  We would love to have her a family lined up and ready by then! Please email us at to apply for pretty Penny!!
