Thanks to the Princess diaries, we know that once upon a time Princess had a home and at least one human subject. There was no evil witch or jealous queen scheming to take her beauty and treasures. Princess’s owner was moving, and wasn’t allowed to have pets. He brought her to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on November 2nd. Princess, a three-year-old blue Pit Bull mix with a coat as soft as suede, brought just one thing with her to the shelter: heartworms. Her future looked bleak. She had the canine genes of a commoner and a disease that would cost a princely sum to cure.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked us for help on December 17th. We made an offer to cover the cost of Princess’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to pull her, and on January 3rd Virginia Paws for Pits committed to taking her. Princess had her heartworm treatment on January 26th.
Princess is described by shelter staff as having impeccable manners. She easily meets, mixes and mingles with other dogs. When you’re a Princess, every bow is a play bow! Friendly and very sweet, Princess nicely meets new humans and softly shakes her hips hoping maybe, just maybe, this new human might take her home. We’re hopeful she’ll attract the right suitor and live happily ever after. The end. Click here to view more photos of Princess.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Princess, which totaled $264.
