A volunteer writes: Snuggle with a sweet roll? If her name is Princess and she’s a chunky plus size, you bet! Snoozing in her kennel much of the day, Princess finally gave me the signal that she’s ready for a walk and out we go. Well, it’s probably more appropriate to say: out……..we………go. She’s a full figured girl, clearly fed with love but is starting the Doggie Weight Watchers Club right here at ACC. She walks slowly and deliberately, partially because she’s so overweight, and partially because it’s a hot steamy day. After she goes potty we hunker down in a little shade on the sidewalk, Princess cuddling in close to me for petting. She’s a total snuggle girl, nuzzling me with her nose if I stop petting, sighing, snorting, and closing her eyes with the pleasure of it all. We’re told she’s been with young children and is gentle and relaxed with them, doesn’t guard her things, greets strangers happily, enjoys sleeping and playing, is housetrained and wee wee pad trained, is well behaved when left home alone and knows a few commands. Princess has an ear infection and some allergies which need to be addressed, but nothing that some TLC won’t cure. A diet is a must for her continued good health. She’s a sweetheart who’s looking for her new snuggle partner(s) and we’re rooting for her to find her special someone fast.
Princess A1087587 is a 4yr old female tan & white English Bulldog who was purchased at a pet store 3yrs ago and is being surrendered due to the owner moving to where pets aren’t allowed. She was last seen by a veterinarian 6months ago (no medical paperwork provided) and currently has skin allergies.
Around strangers Princess is friendly/outgoing. She’s spent time with a 7 & 10yr olds and was gentle, exuberant, relaxed, playful with them and also the adult in the home. Princess hasn’t lived with other animals but she ignores them when they bark at her outside. She has never bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Princess isn’t bothered by the following: having her food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being brushed or being disturbed while sleeping/resting. For bath time Princess will grunt, sometimes growl but won’t snap or bite/scratch. Princess doesn’t mind her front nails being trimmed but struggles when the hind ones are being done. If someone approaches the home/family member Princess will happily greet bark.
For A New Family to Know:
Princess is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, mellow & excitable (during play) with a medium activity level. She enjoys sleeping/resting & playing. She enjoys squeaky toys, will destroy stuffed toys, games of fetch, chase & tug sometimes. Princess is mostly an indoor only dog who sleeps on a dog bed, with the owner or around the home & is walked 1x a day where she doesn’t pulls on her leash. She eats dry Pedigree 2x a day and after she eats Princess has to “go” & will let you know. Princess is house broken, will use wee wee pads indoors & was crate trained when first brought home. When left home alone Princess is well behaved and her known commands are “nooo” (dragged out), “stop”, “sit” and “come”.
Princess allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned (+), collared & taken pictures of. Princess then walked along side me to her kennel which she hopped into on her own. I took Princess out briefly to replace her linen and we were playing where she play bowed and laid on
the floor; half on her side for belly rubs and butt scratches.
