Sweet Penny was taken in as a stray by Acadiana Humane Society in Sunset Louisiana, 70584. She had a terrible cough and was slightly under weight. Her teeth were in pretty bad shape. We were thinking it was kennel cough or worse, heart worms. We took her to the vet to have her checked and assess her over all health. She was heart worm negative and did not have kennel cough but was diagnosed with a heart condition. Penny was spayed and had a dental. We were hoping by having her teeth cleaned and the bad ones removed it would help her little heart but we soon found out that without the proper medication Penny would surely die. She would need to be on medication for the rest of her life. We really didn't think we would find Penny a loving home because not many people want a not so perfect dog. But Scott and Julaine came into Petco, saw Penny and fell in love instantly. They could see beyond the heart condition and knew she deserved a second chance. It has been almost a year since they adopted her. They have taken Penny into their home and hearts and have given her the best home we could have ever hoped for. Penny is now on 3 medications a day to help her heart function properly and is happy and healthy in her new home. She has another Chihuahua to play with. She loves to chase lizards on the patio, sun herself in the yard and best of all be a Daddy's girl. Penny is the perfect example of what a loving home can do for a not so perfect pup. It turned out that Penny was the PERFECT pup for Scott and Julaine
