Meet Penny, a sweet dog who needs to learn what love is.

This 4-year-old girl is a little nervous at the shelter. Walking on a leash and going outdoors can be scary for her, so she’s looking for a loving and patient person to help her understand that the world isn’t always a scary place.

When Penny does come out of her shell, she’s a total love bug. She loves cuddling and being pet, has shown us her very impressive zoomies, and will be your best friend for life once she knows she can trust you.

Penny is learning every day and has already come so far, but we’d love to see her go to her forever home. While it may take her some time to adjust, we know that she’ll settle in and be the best good girl for you.

We have no known history of Penny living with other dogs, cats, or children, but our Adoptions Team can help to guide you through introductions.

If you’re interested in adopting Penny, you can visit her at our Atlanta Animal Center during our open hours. She qualifies for our Foster First Program, which means you can take her home for two weeks prior to finalizing her adoption to ensure she’s a good fit for your lifestyle.
