meet prince

A few weeks ago, I started volunteering at the local adoption days held by the organization HART (Homeless Animal Rescue Team), from which I adopted my cat.  They're a committed no-kill group, and most of their animals are rescued from kill shelters elsewhere in the state.  Each Saturday, I'm paired with a dog for the afternoon, and yesterday it was Prince.

Prince is a mutt.  HART designates him a shepherd/terrier mix, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had some Lab in him somewhere as well.  He is a sweet, sweet boy, although he was a bit nervous at the event.  He is incredibly devoted to his foster mom, but I suspect that devotion would easily shift to the person who feeds him.  He's about a year old and FULL of energy.  He needs lots of exercise, and would do well with another dog, so long as he/she wasn't too dominate.  He's very playful, and loves to tear up sticks.  He's extremely sharp, and would be quite easy to train, especially as he's so food-motivated. 

If you're interested in knowing more about this great guy, check out his HART page.  If you'd like to meet him, come by the Fairfax Petco next Saturday and see us!  The events run from 12-3 pm.
