LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — For a local family this week it’s a happy tale to tell about how Penny came into their lives.

The Animal Foundation in Las Vegas shared the news that Penny, a three-pound nine-week-old puppy, found abandoned at the airport has found a new home.

Penny was found alone in a carrier at an airline departure gate earlier this week. She was brought to the Animal Foundation for safekeeping.
