#8477 Dorian's Penny

Medium-size, Female, Adult Collie,
Dorian's Penny is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Dorian's Penny is currently being fostered in Nokesville, VA.

Oh there you are! I've been looking for a soul like you my whole life! Don't let my face fool you, I'm not as old as I look. My unique coloring is what made my foster Momma fall in love with me before we even met!

My name is Dorian's Penny and I am 3 years young. My foster Momma doesn't know what happened to make me a shy girl around new people, and I haven't found a way to tell her. I can tell you that I do love people and just want to be loved on. I have learned to be a dog in my foster home. I can play with toys, chew on bones, snuggle with my foster family, and have friends to play with. While all this is great, I would really love to have a family to call my own. Do you think that maybe you are the family for me? My foster Momma has put together some things below that she thinks you need to know.

My foster Momma says at her house:
- I am great in my crate at my foster home. My foster Mom feeds me and gives me the BEST treats in there so it has been a happy place to go to! I even run in there on my own when it's time to get put up!
- I haven't had any accidents in my crate.
- I am a bit timid, but once I get to know you my tail doesn't stop wiggling. I now happily prance when foster Momma takes me outside instead of "Pancaking" myself to the ground.
- Treats are REALLY yummy and I'd like to have more please! I do this cute little dance when I know I'm getting a treat.
- I like squeaky toys and bully sticks!

Foster Momma doesn't know what happened to me before I got to the shelter. I can't tell her, but she says she doesn't think I've had an easy life. Don't worry she is helping mend my heart with love. I went to the dog park and tried to make some friends, I sniffed and trotted with some dogs. My favorite part was there were so many new people to pet me! If you are interested in me, please apply today. I am looking for a family to call my own. Could that be you?

This dog tested positive for Ehrlichia before arriving to the rescue. Ehrlichia is a very common type of bacteria that infects dogs and other species and is spread by ticks. Ehrlichia is not contagious to humans or other pets. The only way to get this disease is to be bitten by a tick that carries it. The treatment is typically 21-30 days of antibiotics. This dog started treatment upon arriving to the rescue.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
