ABOUT ME: Hi there, my name is Prince. Even though I am small, I know how to rule any kingdom. I have a lot of sass packed into a small body. I came to the SPCA of Texas as an owner surrender when my owners couldn't take care of me anymore. Unfortunately, I was in pretty rough shape with severe matting all over and issues with my hips. My friends at the shelter got me all cleaned up, but sadly, some of the physical and mental pain still remained. The behavior department has been working very hard to win over my trust and teach me that humans really are great! I am starting to agree, as they just spoil me all day with treats, my favorite toys, and big blankets to roll around in.

MY IDEAL HUMAN: Will need to be experienced with dogs that have behavioral challenges! I may be adorable, but I am not your average little pup. My humans will need go slow, respect my boundaries, and let me set the pace on our interactions.

MY DREAM HOME: I am looking for an adult-only foster castle that can provide me with plenty of time and patience, so that the more can be learned about my behavior in a home environment and with a new family! My home will be calm, quiet, with little to no visitors.

DOGS: Please bring potential dog siblings to meet me.

SPECIAL NOTE: I am not available for adoption, but I am eligible for foster-to-adopt.
