Beth Fernandez would like all of you to meet Penny! Penny is a 6 week old border collie puppy who she adopted from a local rescue in Northern Illinois, USA.
How did Penny become part of your family?
We adopted Penny at 6 months old in July of 2014. She came to a local rescue in northern IL from Missouri with 29 other dogs. She was a owner surrender, so she never spent time in a shelter.
Does Penny have any special talents or tricks?
She is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She loves meeting other dogs, chasing squirrels or rabbits and loves riding in the car. She especially gets excited on our trips to the dog park. She knows exactly how to get there and she is sure to grab my arm to remind me when we need to make the turn into the park. She has a best friend, Tessie, that she plays with, who is also another rescue BC. Her favorite past time is to chase other dogs that chase balls or Frisbees. She has become a little more interested in playing fetch, but she would much rather herd her fellow dog park members!
What is the one thing that you love the most about having a border collie as a pet?
She has enriched our lives in ways I never expected. It is really cliche, but I agree with the “who rescued who?” quote.
