Adopting an abused pet can require a lot of work. Questions are often raised when adopting dogs from abused homes. Blaine, an adventure-loving dad, had brought home an abused pet, Penni just before she was to be put down the following day. However, Penni’s shy and anxious nature never made her feel at home with Blaine despite him being only loving him unconditionally.

Penni made no eye-contact with Dad for the past six months. Even when he would come for a visit, she would refuse to go on walks and seemed to be always scared of everything. Her past spent in an abusive drug house basement had taken a toll on her and she would always curl up into a corner and look gloomy.

Penni’s life took a turn for the better, however, when Dad moved from New Jersey to Las Vegas. He started taking Penni on hikes and that proved to be a beacon of light she needed. Slowly, she came out of her shell and finally embraced the passionate spirit inside her.

Penni has finally found her perfect adventure partner in Dad, who is always ready to go on hikes. By escaping the blanket of cold weather in Michigan for warmer climates, Penni is renewed to enjoy life again.

Penni is the happiest when she is outside. Every dog owner has the responsibility to integrate his/her dog into the family, and Dad knows that Penni wouldn’t trade anything in the world for freedom!
