Brewster, NY – Remember Pico & Princess, the bonded pair who were losing their home because the guy who had taken them in off the streets of the Bronx was going into the hospital and could no longer care for them?

A good samaritan, upon learning their plight, took them to be spayed / neutered and up to date on shots and then partnered with AmsterDog to try to find them foster or forever homes.

Well the update is that Pico was very fortunate to find a loving forever home with a wonderful family in PA. But Princess, although lucky to find a temporary foster in Staten Island, hasn’t been so lucky as to find her forever family yet.

Here’s what she’d like you to know about her:

“Hi, I’m Princess! Even though I may have had a rough start in life, first on the streets of the Bronx, then being separated from my bonded mate, I still haven’t lost my joy or my faith in humanity.

My foster parents were never expecting or prepared to take me in but they didn’t want to see me end up at the nycacc when my caretaker became hospitalized so they have allowed me to come stay with them. They live in a small apartment and both of them work hard at their very demanding jobs so that means they aren’t able to be home often and so I’m often crated and home alone. I also don’t have any other dogs or children here for me to play with either.

I’m told I’m a sweet, loving, high energy dog. I’m obedient, I know my basic commands, am fully house-trained and crate-trained.

I really like other dogs that are submissive or neutral (non-Alpha). I’m told it’s possible I could go to a family with cats if they are patient and do proper introductions since I’ve never really had any interactions with cats other than the occasional stray I might have passed on the street when I lived in the city.

I am still young and energetic and can get excited and jumpy at times so a home without very small children would be best due to my size and weight of 70 lbs.

I’m very grateful to every one for keeping me out of the nycacc, but now I’m waiting to find out if there is a forever family out there that will show me what true love and commitment is. Could that be yours?

Thank you for reading my story and sharing with your friends and family!”

Love, kisses and tail wags,
Princess ♥
