Penny Say hi to Penny, an adorable 2-month-old, female, Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog mix. Her short, buff colored coat is easy maintenance and her brown eyes are friendly and bright. Penny’s disposition is sweet and calm with a willingness to cooperate and please. Coming into the shelter as a stray, she is a little on the shy side, but she will respond well to the love, affection and attention of a good, forever home. Penny will be a great dog, and she is available through Saturday. Carrie and Binx So pretty, so sweet, so cuddly. Meet Carrie and Binx. These two exquisite kittens are eight weeks old.
