Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Maltese / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 8.2 lbs
Height: 9 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/16/2009
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Surrendered by owners to Animal Control. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from the shelter.
Special Needs: Prinsesa arrived as a severe neglect case. Our vet stated she had been in pain for a long time, between untreated bladder stones and her mouth. Thankfully, those days are behind! Prinsesa has been spayed, had her bladder stones removed, and had a serious dental in which she lost 21 teeth. She also had part of the tissue in her bladder removed. Prinsesa's little body is healing and feels so much better. Now she is ready for her forever home! Prinsesa is on a special diet to prevent future bladder issues. She eats C/D canned food and will need to be on this for life.
What kind of home would be best for me: Princesa is looking to be someone's sweetheart. She'd love a home where someone is home during the day as this girl does not like to be far from her humans. She would be great as the only dog, or more than happy to live with another dog. She'd be happy with cats, or happy without them. As long as she is where you are, Princesa will be happy!
What is my personality like: Prinsesa - we cannot imagine what you have endured sweetheart. Don't let the name fool you. Taking one look at her crooked little smile and you can tell this curious girl is always up to something! Prinsesa is a wonderful girl. At an estimated 11 years young, she is full of personality. She loves to run and play and will sneak into a treat jar as soon as you leave one open!
Prinsesa lost a lot of teeth during her dental when she came into rescue. Given this, she eats soft food and is on a prescription food to manage any potential future bladder issues. Prinsesa is full or life. She loves other dogs and cats. She loves being where her people are. She is sometimes nosy and occasionally jealous, but never in an aggressive way. Princesa just wants to be where the action is and wants to be the center of attention!
Princesa does not love crates. She can be quite vocal when she can see you and isn't want you. Given this, she's best suited for a home where someone is looking for a follow-you-everywhere sort of girl. From snuggling in your lap to playing ball in the yard to enjoying car rides to new places, Princesa would love to be your ride or die girl!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: The shelter stated that Prinsesa is 15 years old. Her shelter paperwork reflects this. Our veterinarian does not feel this age is accurate. He aged Prinsesa at 11 years old based on her overall condition, energy level, and medical workup. Given this, we have her estimated birthday as 10/16/2009
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
