Penny is an adorable young shepherd mix that we adopted from Thrive Animal Rescue through Kelly, one of their foster partners in Huntington Beach. Kelly heard of this sweet girl roaming near the freeway as a stray in Riverside, CA and immediately jumped in to help Penny on behalf of Thrive. Despite her life as a stray, Penny is very confident, balanced, happy and eager to work for treats, affection and playtime. She is wonderfully social and super sweet. We are so happy to have her in our program and look forward to her future with a veteran in need!
