Prince was found as a stray in Georgia. He has not been well cared for and was probably not well bred. He has an enlarged heart (4 out of 6 murmur) and is on medications to support that. He gets ear infections easily and they hurt him. And he has periodontal disease and needs regular dental cleanings.
Prince isn't much of a prince. He is crate and food aggressive. He's bad to mark his territory - but he will happily wear a belly band (a male diaper). He loves to lounge and lay in the sun and he amazingly likes to be given a bath. He does well with other dogs and while he does not play, he co-exists peacefully. He does NOT like to be picked up and will snap if you try to do so.
If he is comfy and someone comes along to move him, When Prince is happy, he gives a little smile. The caregivers at the farm think his smile shows that he has a playful side. Prince requires sedation grooming. He will likely also require sedation for vetting.
In the right home and with the right people, that playful side could come out. Love and security can do amazing things for a little guy like Prince.
Prince is adoptable to the right, experienced home. He is not an easy character and is going to challenge his new owner. He needs attention, loving direction and leadership. Prince is an independent dog that will never be someone's lap pet. He needs someone that understands dogs with aggressive tendencies and a commitment to allow him to lead his best independent life. Prince will not be placed in a home with children or with other dogs. He is fine with cats.
Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs. If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support! Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate. Questions? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I love my Virtual Adopters! Prince is looking for virtual adopters!Donate
