About Penny and Skoshi
Penny and Skoshi's Owner
Penny was adopted and is a sweetheart. She's a sensitive, loving, athletic dog who gets along with just about everyone. Penny's a BIG talker (crier/squealer) especially when she's happy. You've NEVER gotten this kind of a greeting when coming home, asking if she wants to go outside or if she wants to be fed. :-) She's eager to please, so as a result, is very well behaved and has great manners. Penny LOVES playing ball, going for walks, hiking, going to a dog park to play more ball, swim and chase other dogs. She's a champion wrestler too. She is not hyper but is active if there's a ball or Frisbee involved and is in great shape. Penny ADORES getting attention. She is a great hostess when we welcome other pets into our home. Penny's entertainment specialties include, wrestling, chasing and tug of war. If she sees you holding a "Chuck It" she gets excited. It's her favorite thing! We usually take it along and throw a ball for her on the neighborhood hiking trails and at the dog parks. Penny knows basic commands like come, sit, down, shake, wait, stay and off. She is great in the car - not the best on a leash. She thinks of "heel" more like "mush." Penny sleeps on her own bed, on the floor near our bed. She'll get on our bed if invited, but usually gets off as soon you fall asleep or the petting stops (whichever comes first.)

I don't know for sure, but he was raised on a farm with ducks, horses, and pigs, so I assume he'd do well.
