Adopt Me, We Need Homes

Meet Penny the Speckled Pittie

10/2017: Still waiting!

6/2016: PENNY: Looking for a adopter, currently in foster care. 2 years old, about 40 lbs. Female Pit Bull mix. Good with dogs. Scroll to bottom of this post for contact info.

Hi, my name is Penny! I’m a cuddly, strawberry blonde, brindle pit mix pup with a unique spotted nose.


During my time at the Animal Care Centers of NYC, I was featured in a “Pitties in PJs” photo shoot. I don’t know what pajamas are, but I really enjoyed the attention and was hopeful the photos would interest potential adopters. But no one adopted me and I was feeling unwanted after 3 weeks in the shelter. I was really surprised and lucky when my foster mom chose me to live with her and help me find my furever home.

I’m housebroken, crate trained, know my sit, and want nothing more than to snuggle with you. (I guarantee I fall asleep first!) I’m up to date on my vaccinations and spayed, so I’m ready to go home with you.


When I go on walks or dine al fresco with my foster mom, I meet lots of people. I sit on their feet and they’re so impressed with my sit and calm behavior. I also like to lick them, which makes children giggle.

I enjoy being bathed and towel dried…and running around the house after I’m clean. I have my own bed and baby blanket, and my foster mom kisses my forehead and tucks me in at bedtime. (Sometimes she lets me sleep in the bed, where I curl up next to her.)

I may have had a sad life before as a throwaway mama, but I’m resilient and ready to be cherished just as I will adore you in return.


Are You My Mother? (Or Father?)

From her foster mom 8/2016: She’s terrific. She loves running each morning and cuddling on the couch. We’re working on her leash reactivity, and I’m planning to schedule a training session this weekend for extra help.

Care of Animal Care Centers of NYC (ID# A1070409). Located in Located in Jersey City, NJ. Penny can be driven to meet and greets in the Tri-State area.

Things to keep in mind: $75 adoption fee applies if you plan to adopt, unless otherwise stated (Foster caretakers must pay adoption fee if they choose to adopt). You may be required to complete a foster/adoption application prior to meeting the dog. Please check with your landlord about your building’s pet policy and of course talk to your roommates. The dog is the legal property of the rescue organization until an adoption contract is signed.
