It takes time for rescue dogs to adjust to having a forever home with a loving family, especially for dogs that were neglected or abused in the past. Some dogs can display anxiety and fear, while other dogs can display aggressive behavior. However, thanks to people who adopt rescue dogs, these dogs have a second chance of living a happy life.
A pit bull named Penni loves going on adventures with her dad. She feels free whenever she and her dad spend time in the wild. Penni is a very energetic dog who loves to explore the forest and go hiking. She even goes rappelling.
However, Penni didn’t always have this life. Before being rescued, Penni spent half of her life locked in a basement. She lived in a drug house and experienced physical and verbal abuse from her previous owners. For Penni, everything around her was scary.
When Penni was finally rescued, animal rescue workers feared that Penni would have a hard time getting adopted. She displayed anxious and fearful behavior, which made her unappealing to adopt. However, Blaine DeLuca met her, and everything in her life changed for the better.
Blaine was looking to rescue a dog when he met Penni. He wanted a dog that can accompany him on his outdoor adventures and needed an energetic dog who could keep up with him. However, when he found Penni, there was something about her that made Blaine adopt her. Rescuers even warned him that Penni was a little shy because of her history of abuse and neglect.
When Penni met Blaine for the first time, something amazing happened. Instead of being scared, Penni went up to Blaine and licked him. After licking Blaine, Penni turned around and sat on Blaine’s lap. The rescuers and volunteers at the shelter were surprised. For Blaine, he knew that Penni is the dog for him.
Blaine eventually realized that Penni’s traumatic past took its toll on her. She was afraid of everything. She didn’t want to be around people, and she was even terrified of dog toys and other inanimate things. It took a while for Blaine to help Penni cope with her fear.
However, everything changed when Blaine and Penni moved to LAs Vegas. The warm weather and calm environment meant that they could spend more time outdoors. There were also quite a lot of hiking areas around that Blaine could explore with Penni.
When Blaine took Penni out for a hike the first time, he knew that everything would be better for Penni. Blaine realized the Penni loved the outdoors. Even when it’s just for a short walk around the block, Penni gets excited and expresses such pure happiness that Blaine couldn’t help but also feel happy.
Penni completely changed from a fearful dog to a happy one. The two best friends would go on adventures together. They would go hiking with friends, and Penni experienced things that not a lot of people would in their life. She even went ziplining and rappelling. Here’s a heartwarming video of how a timid and fearful dog became an active adventurer who loves the great outdoors.
