She was abandoned at birth by her young mother, and was the only one of her siblings to survive.  Two weeks ago she celebrated her first birthday.

“I never thought a year ago, when I brought you home in a cardboard box at 3 days old, that this is where we’d be today. Any of it! I am so grateful for all the wonderful people we’ve ‘met’ over the past year. Thank you for being there for our journey.”

Penny’s mother did not have maternal instinct and she did not nurse her puppies. “I tried to save her brother as well but he did not survive the drive home. I wasn’t sure if she was going to make it,” Candice said.

She was bottle fed and Penny thrived.  She was very playful and she charmed her way into everyone’s hearts and became a foster fail.

Now she is growing up, but she’s always be that adorable puppy that stole everyone’s heart!
