Princess is an “At Risk” dog listed to die on Thursday at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. On April 15, she was surrendered to the shelter because her owner said the dog was no longer permitted in their apartment. Now she is at risk of euthanasia this afternoon for medical reasons; she has been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs at the shelter. According to shelter notes, she will need to be administered antibiotics for two weeks.
Apparently Princess refuses to let her bad cold bother her; a volunteer sings her praises:
“Dear Diary, Today was the very best day. I ran and I jumped and I played! I made so many new friends and I ate so many delicious wonderful snacks. Today was the very best day. ‘Who ever said you needed Anne Hathaway or Julie Andrews to enjoy the Princess Diaries?’ Our four-year-old pooch is obviously royalty in her buttercream coat tailor made for a queen to be.”
This delightful dog has a cheerful affinity towards toys (pink stuffies) and bubbles over with enthusiasm. She is described as leash trained, takes her treats gently and her tail swishes at windshield wiper speed when she spots a toy. An experienced adopter would be perfect for this girl.
Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Today could be her very last day to play. Help to fill in May 3 – below:
“Day unknown: “Dear Diary, Today was truly the very best day, my happiest day, the best day I have ever known. Today is the day that I found my new family. Today is the day I went home.” Princess is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.”
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 2. Blue
Dog had a relaxed body and wagging tail. She allowed me to pet and collar her. She put her ears back as I took pictures and when I was done she gave kisses. She sat on cue. When putting her in her kennel she backed away. Once I placed water and food in, she walked right in.
Basic Information:: Dog is a spayed fawn brindle and white medium mixed breed. She was adopted from ACC 8 months ago. She was surrendered because her previous owner is moving to a place pets are not allowed.
Previously lived with:: 2 adults, 3 children
