“I always wanted a dog and my boyfriend decided it was the right time.
We moved into a dog friendly apartment and we had job security.
We were dog walking and dog sitting and met a particular breed, (a Cavanese) and we fell in love.
We wanted to get a rescue but I have severe allergies.
We wanted a dog that didn’t shed and didn’t bark, but couldn’t find a dog with that criteria in the rescue world.
We asked someone with a Cavanese where she got her dog and then we contacted the breeder.
The timing was just right because that breeder just had a litter.
We went to Pennsylvania and picked out Penny.
She was the only puppy that came up to our lap and fell asleep.”
