When Penni’s dad rescued her, she was too scared to even make eye contact. She would sit in the corner with her head down. Penni’s sad past had taught her that the world was a scary place but her new dad, Blaine, was determine to show her that life can be beautiful.

The duo relocated from New Jersey to Las Vegas so they could enjoy the outdoors all year round. Blaine brought Penni along when he went hiking. That was when Penni began to thrive! Step by step, she let go of her fear of humans and the world around her. She began to trust and look at each day like a new beginning.

Her dad gives her the reassurance that she’s safe now, and always will be. She hikes like a pro! She rides on her dad’s back and loves to repell down while he waits for her at the bottom. The hiking community can’t get enough of this happy girl. Thanks to her second chance at life, and her pawsome dad, each day is a beautiful adventure!
