Meet Penny, Labrador Retriever Pitbull Mix Dog For Adoption in Raleigh NC
Penny is such a beautiful dog – inside and out. She is a nice mix of Labrador Retriever and American Pit Bull Terrier. Penny is 7 years old and weighs 60 pounds. She is in good health, spayed, up to date on shots and house trained.
Penny has such a loving and laid back personality. She does not require a lot of exercise, providing she has a big, fenced yard to enjoy. She loves spending time with people, and is such a nice companion. She is smart and will do almost anything to please you.
Penny is very good with people, including children. She is not good with other dogs, as she is an alpha dog, intent on staying that way. For this reason, Penny needs to find a new home where the owners have no other pets, a securely fenced yard, and lots of time to hang out with her. In return, she will provide so much love and companionship.
If you have room in your heart and home for this lovely Lab Pitty mix, please get in touch with us today. Penny can’t wait to meet you and steal your heart. Adopt Penny today.
There is a $50 adoption/rehoming fee. Supplies and veterinary records will be included.

Penny is incredibly smart. She understands all standard commands and has been house trained since she was a puppy. She is one of the most athletic dogs we have ever seen. She’s quick as lightning and will try to show you her speed whenever she gets the chance (would do best with a fenced yard).
When Penny turned 2 we felt that she needed a companion during the day because my wife and I were working so much, so we adopted Roscoe (Irish setter/boxer mix) as a rescue puppy and they have done very well together.
Even though he now outweighs her by 30 or 40 pounds, she definitely remains the boss. Upon initial interaction with other dogs, Penny almost always shows immediate aggression (this occurred even when we brought Roscoe home as a puppy). This aggression doesn’t tend to last very long at all but can be quite intense during the first encounter. She would likely do better in a home that does not currently have any other pets or has pets larger than her.
She loves people and just wants to be a part of the action. She will do anything for food/treats and that is definitely where she finds her joy. She can be quite dainty. She doesn’t like to go out in the rain or get her paws wet/muddy if she can avoid it. She doesn’t shed much at all (markedly less than Roscoe). She is content to lay around the house most of the day and does not require much exercise to stay fit. She loves walks, but she is very strong and can be difficult to walk in areas where there are a lot of other dogs around.
Why is Penny Being Rehomed?
We recently moved to Raleigh from Louisville, KY about a month ago. We adopted Penny as a rescue shortly after her birth. Over the past 7 years she has become a part of our family. She is an incredibly sweet, smart, athletic, and loyal dog.
Unfortunately, since the move she has started to show signs of aggression towards our two young children (ages 4 and 2). This is the first time that she has ever shown aggression towards people. My wife and I have never seen her show any aggression towards us.
However, she has now aggressively barked at and scratched both of our boys on separate occasions within the last week. My wife is currently pregnant with our third child and we know that we will have young children in the house for the foreseeable future.
We love Penny but we can’t afford to have this behavior escalate and have something more significant happen to one of our children.
Penny’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
Penny needs a home where she can be an only pet. She would do well with a family with older children where there is a big, securely fenced back yard. She adores people, so she would thrive in this situation.
