Hi! My name is Lauren and I would like to introduce you to Penny.Penny is a very unique Chihuahua/Dachshund mix that was born with several deformities.The first, is her front left paw.As you can see, it is much shorter than her other legs and kind of looks like a stump with two toes.Penny also has a severe overbite, extra-large ears and a very long tail.
Despite being different, Penny does not let her disabilities hold her back.She can jump on the furniture just like her other fur siblings and has even managed to scale a 3 foot pet gate!
It is Penny’s amazing spirit that made me decide to write a children’s book based on her incredible adoption journey.Penny was found as a stray in California and taken to a high kill shelter.Time was running out for her, but thanks to Second Chances Animal Rescue, Penny embarked on a cross country trip in search of her forever home.
After everything that Penny has been through, she has remained a sweet and loving dog that enjoys getting to meet new people.I believe that children of all ages will fall in love with Penny and her story of hope.
Now, Penny and I need your help to make her children’s book a reality.For every $25 that you pledge to the “Priceless Penny” project, you will receive a free copy of the book. For every $50 pledged, your name will appear on a special Thank You page in the book and you will receive a free signed copy. For every $75 pledged, not only will your name be included in the Thank You page, but you will also receive a signed copy of the book along with a limited edition sketch of Penny.
Please help Penny share her incredible story of courage and determination with the world!Thank you for your support!
Risks and challenges
With the "Priceless Penny" project, the greatest obstacle will be securing the necessary funds in order to pay the illustrator and layout/design team. The project cannot begin without paying a certain percentage of the overall cost to both parties. Once the funds are raised, the project should progress smoothly.
I do not foresee any future obstacles except, perhaps, delays in printing if last minute changes need to be made to any of the illustrations or text.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
