Date February 13, 2019 11:15

Have you met a genius dog? No one can deny that dogs are intelligent creatures, and this Rat Terrier is living proof. Her name is Penny, and her life didn’t start with rainbow and sunshine. As a homeless puppy, she was found in a local park when she was only a few weeks old and taken to the shelter.

Sadly, it took a long time for the cute pup to find her forever home. She switched a few families, but they all returned her because of her “destructive personality.”

Penny had too much energy that needed guidance to find the right direction, but everything changed when she was adopted by Leonora Anzaldua.

The picture goes with a caption:

"This kid is getting really good at counting! Just 1 and 2 for now but I think she's really getting it so we should be able to add new numbers fairly easily."

It took Penny just a few hours to master the command to sit and, the age of 8 months, she knew all regular commands. Anzaldua went further to stimulate the pup’s special abilities.

She said:

"I figured, they say dogs are about as smart as a human toddler and toddlers can learn shapes, so I bought a shape sorter and set out to teach her to use it."

To her huge surprise, Penny could learn shapes with a click of the fingers. The dog demonstrated her extraordinary skills, as well as her amazing cuteness, on the Instagram page her owner created for her.

Her owner proudly continues:

Once Penny mastered shapes, we moved onto letters. Now we practice spelling, along with lots of other fun things.

Can you believe a dog can spell? This dog can! Watch this video of a cute pup spelling her own name!

Experts say it is possible to teach your pet any trick, even spelling, with a smart approach. Your favourite pup can learn plenty of things, step by step, as long as they get their tasty reward, of course!

However, some breeds are more intelligent than others. The smartest are Border Collie, Poodle, German shepherd, Golden retriever, Doberman pinscher, The Shetland sheepdog, Labrador retriever, and Papillon.

Even though the Rat Terrier isn’t included in this list, adorable Penny is a real example of an exception that proves the rule!
