*Note: Princess is in foster care, Coquitlam BC.
Last winter Princess and her sister, Seola, were rescued from a man who raised dogs for meat. They later lived at our partner boarding house until they flew to Canada. Seola was adopted by a wonderful family in Toronto, and Princess is currently with her foster family in Coquitlam looking for her forever home.
Given her young age and all the changes she has undergone, we are very proud of how Princess has taken everything in stride. While she can be shy and tentative in the beginning, she is ultimately a very playful, curious, sweet, and affectionate girl who enjoys a good cuddle session once acquainted. However, Princess values “quality” over “quantity” – she much prefers the company of a small group of people she has become familiar with rather than being a social butterfly who meets and greets many different people.
Having grown up in a boarding house environment, Princess loves playing with other dogs as long as they are not aggressive. She gets excited when meeting new dogs and enjoys chasing games. She has recently attended a few doggy day care sessions where she has thoroughly enjoyed herself. With time, she has warmed up to the doggy day care staff too! She has a submissive personality with people and other dogs.
Having previously been a “country girl”, Princess is adjusting to the city and all the sights and sounds it has to offer. Although curious and brave, she finds these new experiences startling at times. She would benefit from living in a more quiet area with less traffic (and the people and noise that comes with it) and someone who would support her through counter conditioning and desensitization approaches. Princess is familiar with putting on her harness and leash, and is working on her leash skills. We believe this would improve in a quieter area where she has less stimuli to distract her, as her current area is a bit busy for her liking.
Her ideal home is one that has experience with dogs, and has the time to spend with her during the day as she is still young. The environment of her home would be quiet, relaxed, and “low key”. Her adopter should be committed to continuing her socialization with other dogs, as well as new people and the outdoors (in a slow and controlled environment). Having another playful dog for her to play with and mirror would be ideal.
