PRINCESS HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING. Princess is a sweet and loving 3 year-old Chihuahua mix female whose world has been turned upside recently. She was dropped off at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter by her owners after they no longer wanted her. According to the shelter, the wife no longer wanted her in the house for some reason so Princess was relegated to living outdoors. Fortunately, the husband realized that this was not right—especially with winter coming- so took her to the shelter so she would have a second chance at the quality of life she deserves. Princess was frightened at the shelter so came to Canine Lifeline so she could relax and take her time finding just the right new home. We’ve found her to be a delightful little dog. She’s a little shy at first when meeting new people but once she knows you want to be her friend, she lets her guard down and is very affectionate and attentive. Given her shyness, a mature home without young children would be best for her. Princess does well with dogs her own size and enjoys playing with her fellow foster dog Jackson. She’s a little intimidated by larger dogs but having a companion dog of her size in her new home would likely suit her well. Princess walks well on a leash and seems to be housetrained. In her foster home, she goes outside on a leash and immediately poops and pees almost as if on command. That makes potty breaks much easier in the winter weather! Princess is crate-trained too. Princess weighs about 15 pounds and her adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email email@example.com if you’re interested in Princess. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
