Dog Story: Prince is a happy, healthy and ACTIVE 8 year old. Had I not just told you he was 8 years young, I could have made you believe he was 2 years old. Prince is an ABR alumni. At two years of age, he was adopted by a young couple. They had all the best intentions in the world of possibly hunt training and making him a major part of their family. However, six years later with the onset of three young children, the couple found limited time to spend with Prince. He began jumping the fence to go find someone or something to play with. He tore up some back porch furniture out of boredom. His family realized they just were not giving Prince what he needed or deserved. They feared he would get hurt on one of his adventures so they contacted us to place him in foster care and find him a new family. In his current foster home, Prince has NEVER offered to jump the fence because he has other dogs to play with and always has a human in the yard with him. He will drag his blanket outside but he is not destructive. Because of his rambunctious nature, Prince would do best with children at least 10 years old. He needs someone that can spend ample time with him as he wants nothing more than to be with his people, and to play and play some more. Prince would be in 7th heaven to have someone willing to chase HIM around the yard and play tug with him. With a toy in his mouth, he will poke you and make noises enticing you to play with him. He is NOT a couch potato dog nor one to be left to entertain himself for hours and hours. But not only does Prince need a playmate but he also needs a trainer. Do I mean he’s untrained and naughty? No! Not by a long shot. He is very well housetrained, crate trained and great with other dogs. Prince just needs some refresher basics like loose leash walking (curbing that patented Brittany pull) and recall. But most of all, Prince needs some training that challenges him and keeps him entertained. He is incredibly smart and it’s a shame to not put those smarts to work. He has not been hunt tested so we are not sure of his ability or desire. And when all the playing is done, Prince is also very affectionate. He loves to be hugged and pet. He will be happy to curl up next to you on the sofa and watch a movie. If you are interested in Prince, please fill out an adoption application. Prince is an owner surrender to rescue because his family didn’t have time for him.
