Schnauzer Penny Elliot
Penny came to us 2 months ago in February 2011 from an elderly couple that couldn't handle her high energy. She joined Max, my 4 year old male black and silver Miniature Schnauzer. He was pretty lonesome after we lost Gus a black MS a year ago. I was hesitant to get another dog and I still really miss my Gus A Tribute to Miniature Schnauzer Gus Elliot.
Penny doesn't look or act like him - she is her own sunny personality with lots of energy and she is keeping us on our toes. One of the reasons I decided to keep her was her birthdate was the same as Gus' and I felt that it was meant to be. She is still settling in, but she has been a terrific playmate for Max and she has burrowed her way into our hearts.
Anna, Max and Penny
