ADOPTED!! Princess

Posted Jul 23, 2012 at 6:44 pm in Latest News


CongRATulations to the Palmer family!

Meet Princess!  Princess is a delightful little lady, approximately 5 years old. She is petite at 11 pounds and around 11 inches tall at the shoulder. She is being fostered in Sonora CA.  This is an extra special, very sweet girl. She is calm in the house, rides nicely in the car and enjoys going for walks. She is housebroken and has no trouble with other dogs – even big ones, or cats. She has a very quiet personality, but she will alert you if someone dares to ring the doorbell.  Princess was rescued from a county animal control shelter, so her history is a mystery.  She is sensitive to movement, such as doors closing behind her and tossed toys or treats, so she would be more comfortable in a home with adults only or older children. She is very snuggly, but cautious with petting, perhaps she was not treated nicely in her former life. She is coming around now with lots of love and gentle treatment.  Like most Rat Terriers we know, Princess is very happy cuddled up next to you to watch some TV and likes to burrow under the blankets at night. Her foster siblings are not cooperative, but she would very much like to run around the yard and play with them. Princess went on her first hiking adventure recently and she loves snoozing outside in the California sunshine.  Princess is ready for her loving forever home and she will give you that love back a million times over!  For photos of Princess in her foster home, see her photo album:
