Update 9/13/18

Big news for Miss Penny!   Her foster mom reports that she is down to 125.8 pounds now and she now walks almost a mile each day. This girl is a lover or as her foster mom describes her – a very, very ‘velcro girl’.  Even though she is still on the puffy side, Penny manages to burrow underneath her foster mom’s desk and will stay there for hours.  She loves her foster sibling and just wants to be near her as much as Chloe will let her.  Of course, she’s very food driven so she is always interested in what’s cooking, but right now, watermelon is still her most favorite treat.

Congratulations Penny – we are so proud of you for what you have done so far on your weight reduction plan and are so grateful that your foster mom is working with you to stay on track.  Sometimes all a gal needs is just a little encouragement to be the best they can be!  We will check back on Penny in a few more weeks!

Penny found herself a little down on her luck when her owner became too ill to care for her any longer.

Penny is a beautiful, full-figured girl whose name matches the color of her silky coat.  The first 24 hours at her new foster home were so confusing for her.  She met another golden who was not quite ready to share their foster mom.  However this sweet girl handled it with grace and patience.  She was quickly introduced to the green bean diet to help get her trim and fit for the fur-ever home that she will someday be going to for a life happily ever after.

This amazing Golden Retriever has adapted beautifully!  By the end of her 2nd day she was happily eating, drinking, playing and giving kisses!  She is already showing signs that her beanie diet is working!

Penny is housebroken and does not need to be crated.  In fact, she lets you know exactly when it’s time to go outside, with a gentle nudge to your hand and a big kiss to really get your attention.  She walks easily on a leash and every day her foster mom adds to the distance of their daily strolls.  She has met many neighbors, children and other dogs and greets each with affection!

Toys and treats and car rides are Penny’s favorites!  The treats she loves most are anything her foster mom offers her.  Of course, that’s fresh fruit and vegetables.  When reminded, she will take the treat very gently from your hand.

Penny knows a couple commands and her foster mom is working on others with her.

Besides being overweight, Penny is being treated for dermatitis.  She desperately needed to be brushed when she arrived but fortunately, she loves to be groomed and that includes baths and showers!

Penny has a vet checkup coming soon.  We expect that she will show a healthy weight loss and the all-clear – that her skin issue has been resolved.

This honey bug is working diligently on her weight loss program and we have no doubt that with the help of her foster mom, she will be ready for her new family.  If you are looking for a sweet, well behaved love muffin, then this could be your “Lucky Penny” Girl.
