Penny is facing an end of life situation at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter for a puzzling reason. On September 29, 2023, this one-year-old Maltese arrived at the shelter as a stray. No one knows why she is so fearful, but this 10-pound dog is available at the shelter as “rescue only” because of her fear and bite incident. She apparently bit the person who was trying to catch her; obviously she has been traumatized and stressed.
Penny is currently on the euthanasia list. Sadly she has a microchip; her owners were notified and have never shown up at the shelter to reclaim her.
