Penny was surrendered to HSHC by her family at age seven. She suffered from a painful Cherry Eye condition that required surgery and ongoing medication, as well as thyroid/weight issues. To top it off, Penny needed to be the only dog in the home.
After HSHC covered her medical treatment, and a loving foster home got her through her eye surgeries, Penny was returned to the shelter to await adoption. However, the stress and loud noises of the kennel took its toll. HSHC contacted newly-registered foster Nicole and asked if she would give Penny a break from the shelter. In less than a week, Nicole declared “foster failure” and signed the adoption papers. Now twelve, Penny is healthy, happy, spoiled, and living out her golden years in the wilds of Montana.
