Meet Prince! He is a highly intelligent, energetic, loving pup of 16 months. He has a heart of gold and loves to please. He is extremely play and food motivated. He does have a stubborn streak, and will, on the occasion, talk back thanks to his husky heritage.
Prince came to us when Animal Services contacted us about an injured pup. After further investigation, we learned his two front legs were deformed after consistent trauma endured over the first year of his life. The deformation caused a lot of pain to Prince and, if left unattended, would surely worsen as he got older. To increase Prince's quality of life, we opted to get him the surgery he desperately needed. Thankfully, many generous donors helped us to offset the cost of his surgery. While his legs are still somewhat deformed, and he will likely experience symptoms of early onset arthritis, Prince's chances of having a normal, pain-free life increased 10-fold to what it once was.
Prince is on the mend and will be available for adoption after April 24th when he (hopefully) gets the all clear from his surgeon.
Prince's ideal home will include an active family and hopefully a canine companion to help burn off some of Prince's puppy energy. Experience with the GSD breed is a plus. Prince would do best with out cats or other small animals in the home. Due to his high energy, above average intelligence, and trainability, Prince would make a great agility dog.
Kate F is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Prince is $300, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Prince. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
