Spanish Water Dog Rescue

Success Story

Home > The Dogs > Success Story > Penny



Penny arrived from Spain in June 2013. We had been asked to take her and one of her half-grown pups by an English lady who ran a rescue organisation over there. She told us that Penny was about three years old and had a lovely temperament but might kill cats! We agreed to take them both but in the end the pup was rehomed in Spain so Penny came on her own. We were surprised and shocked, when she arrived, to see that she was at least ten years old and had a mouth full of rotten, broken teeth! She was also a bit 'wobbly' in her hind-quarters and very soft and flabby, probably as a result of litter after litter of pups. After a trip to the vets to remove half her teeth and blood tests to check she did not have Leishmaniasis she was ready for rehoming. Fortunately for Penny we had received an application from a lovely older gentleman who just wanted a companion. He came to meet her and it was love at first sight on both sides. Penny has really fallen on her feet and is very happy. And so is her 'Dad'.
