Meet Prince, our Pet of the Week who is looking for a new castle to call his own

Mass Appeal

Bow down to your Prince! Lee Chambers introduces us to this royal dog who needs a new home.

Name: Prince

Breed:  Long coat Chihuahua mix

Age:   3 years

Sex:    Male

Color:  White with brown and black


This little fellow is a bit deceiving.  He may want you to think that he’s docile and shy, but he’s actually a ruler seeking a person to rule.  Prince is a dog who won’t be perfect for everyone.  For a start, he needs a home without kids or other dogs because he will want to be the center of your attention. He hasn’t lived with other dogs yet, so if you have a dog already, we can arrange for a meet and greet between them.  Prince has a strong personality and will let you know when he wants to be petted and fed.  He will need to be watched when you let people into your home.  Prince is the type who wants to be closely bonded with his person, and it’s best if his person has some experience with a strong-willed pet whose behavior will have to be managed.  If you can set rules and boundaries for this guy, he’ll be a fun addition to your life and will show his devotion.  Come meet him at our Springfield Adoption Center.
