PRINCESS UPDATE: Some of you may recall Princess the blind Cocker Spaniel that was dumped at the Manhattan Shelter on New Year's Eve by her so called family, well look at her today!
Princess is extremely happy and looking so beautiful whi...le she waits for the Mayor's Alliance of NYC's Animals to transport her to her foster home in Southbury, Ct. A big THANK YOU to the Mayor's Alliance for transporting another Angel in waiting and Jenn M. and family for giving Princess a Castle to hang her leash!
Instead of ringing in the New Year with her loving family, poor Princess found herself dumped at the shelter. We need an emergency foster home for this sweet 11 year old b...uff girl. A shelter volunteer writes: Princess is a big "little dog". Although she was likely loved by her family, Princess might not have been given the opportunity to go much for walks and we are told she was fed table food...As a result, lovely Princess is quite overweight. She walks slowly but surely although it seems that her vision is slightly diminished. She surely owns huge eyes. Her coat is thick. She is calm in her kennel and closes her eyes when I scratch her head. Princess is leashed without effort. She does not "do" stairs but agrees to a stroll around the block. She is civil to all big dogs met and does her business like a good girl. Princess was relinquished into our care as her owners are moving out of state. She comes with excellent recommendations, the most important features to us being that she is good to strangers , other dogs and children (with whom she shared her life). A most friendly, cute , and well behaved older dog who will for many more years make a new master or family happy to own her for the rest of her life providing many walks and a balance nutrition.
