Penny is a female Rottie mix (possibly mixed with Pit Bull although that's just a guess); DOB 11/30/16; approx. 67 lbs. She is s very sweet dog, knows basic commands. Likes people, ok with cats. Needs a little help with leash walking (pulling) but nothing a class or two could not help. She really is a nice dog. Compact and sturdy. Recommendation is older children only due to her size and strength.
