HAVING lead a fairly isolated life in Ireland, Penny is understandably a nervous dog.

The eight-year-old female retriever came to Dogs Trust having always been kennelled outside with the sister.

Although the dog is sensitive, company is enjoyed. A home with children over the age of 14 and another dog under the age of eight is needed, with no cats or any other small animals. A car and home that is not in the middle of town are also needed.

Dogs Trust said: “Penny is frightened of traffic as she has never experienced it, so she will need a garden to potter in until her confidence grows and she feels comfortable to road walk.”

Penny had grass seeds in the ears, which had been left untreated, so they are very sore, as is the skin.

The dog will be rehomed under the Shared Adoption Scheme, which means that Dogs Trust will pay for her existing medical conditions excluding routine treatments and the first £7.50 for each visit to the vets.

Supporter relations officer Naomi Tucker said: “Penny has a special place in the hearts of the staff and we would love to see her find a very special home for her to retire to.

“Although she has particular needs for her new home, she has so much to offer and is a real sweetie.”
