A dog who was abandoned in a garage before being taken to an Ohio animal shelter as a cruelty case, has now spent 162 days as a homeless shelter dog. According to the Toledo Humane Society, Princess has been featured in social media posts 11 times and only ONE family ever showed interest in her.
The unfortunate dog thought she had her happily-ever-after one time…but her adopter returned her because they encountered “unforeseen” circumstances that had nothing to do with her. Once again, she was sent to the shelter.
On Tuesday, the animal welfare agency wrote:
We can only imagine that this Princess is feeling more like a pauper… After all, what is a Princess without a family, a kingdom, or people to love her? And now that she’s at the shelter, with the past 5 months spent up for adoption, she can’t even get a family to look at her. She’s so incredibly sweet and affectionate! New situations do make her uncomfortable – she’s spent the past several months learning to trust again and her foster family has invested so much love and attention in Princess.
Adding the urgency of her situation:
Princess NEEDS out of this shelter. She has spent so much of her life going back and forth that she doesn’t know what home is and it’s certainly not the white walls that seem to enclose her daily here. We aren’t joking when we say you can see sadness in her eyes. She longs to have a home where she can rest her head on a comfy bed or in the lap of someone who loves her. Her mental health is degrading, as it does with any long stay dog.
Please reach out to the shelter if you are interested in meeting this deserving dog.
