• Animal ID#: A304856
  • Dog Name: Prince
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 4 years
  • This handsome boy is very scared and timid, but just really wants to please you. Lowering yourself and sweet talking really helps him feel at ease. He seems unsure if people want to harm him, but once he realizes he’s safe, he just wants to be by your side and soak up affection. He very gently asks for attention; it’s so endearing. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs, but might be more playful outside of the shelter environment. A home environment will do wonders for him and build his confidence! We can’t wait to see him thrive!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
