“I’ve always loved dogs and I’ve always wanted a dog, and I had a change in my job situation.
I was going to be working from home, so I would have the ability to give time to taking care of a dog.
My girlfriend and I searched for rescue dogs online.
We knew we wanted a rescue.
My girlfriend wanted to get a dachshund, so we googled dachshund rescue and Pet finder showed us various dachshunds, including Penny (whose name wasn’t Penny at the time).
