Penn is a Wisconsin dog who likes to chew. His mom was a bit embarrassed when he turned his teeth loose on the plastic case for the movie she rented. But she later told friends on Facebook she was relieved she’d already taken the movie out of the box, so Penn only chewed on an empty case. So what the heck? The movie was fine, so Penn’s mom did this:
Somebody at Redbox has a big heart for canine shenanigans and fired off a Facebook post with the hashtag "#HelpFindPenn
The Facebook world jumped to Penn’s defense, posting comments like, “Don’t put Penn in the pen!” and warning the dog to not ID himself. And then this viral game got even cuter, when Redbox promised to be nice to Penn.
Pretty soon, Penn’s mom commented on the thread. She goes by Lexi Marie on Facebook, and it looks like Redbox is making good on the friendship promise. Lexi Marie posted a screenshot of her conversation with a Redbox rep.
Well played, Redbox.
Lucky dog, Penn.
We hope we get to see pictures of Penn’s gift when it arrives. We saw mention of pizza and chew toys. It’s hard to say which he’d like more.
