Penny

Penny

This is my lucky penny
One I’d like to give to you
It will not only bring you luck,
but help to see you through,
those times when you feel stuck,
or just a little blue.

That’s me “Lucky Penny”, but you can just call me Penny. I feel like I am the luckiest girl in the whole wide world. I was down and out and found myself alone in a shelter. I was scared and thin and not feeling very well. My people had let me down. They had not treated me well or taken very good care of me. One day a nice lady came in to the shelter and asked for me. I couldn’t believe that somebody was there just for little old me. I had just about given up hope. She said she worked for a place called Carolina Basset Hound Rescue and promised me that everything was going to be OK . She said lot’s of people were happy I was getting out and they were waiting to take care of me. She named me Penny and we were out of there quick as a wink.

She was right, there was somebody waiting to take care of me. They took me to the vet and figured out why I was not feeling so great. They did some work on me and I am feeling much better. I just started heart worm treatment so it will still be a few weeks before I can find my forever home. These people are so nice to me I still have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming. They have a door just for us dogs and I can go in and out whenever I want to. I really like to explore out in the yard and sunbathe. In case you were wondering, I go potty in the yard so don’t worry about that. I really like the yard, but I sure do like the house too. Guess what these people have in their house? Stairs that lead right up to a HUGE soft bed. I figured those out lickkety split and I feel just like a queen when I lay up there.

I was a little guarded when I first got here, but now that I know everyone is so nice I am coming out of my shell. I like to hang out with people and have my belly and ears rubbed. I think I would like to find a home with bigger kids who will understand that I can still get a little scared sometimes. My foster Mom says that everyday my “bassetness” comes out a little more. Are you looking for a Lucky Penny? I would love to share my good luck with you. Check out my profile.
