@Regrann from @susiesseniordogs - HUNTINGTON, NY: Looking for a #hypoallergenic dog and also want to choose adoption? Then Prince is the perfect, well, prince for you! 👑🙋🏼♂️He needs time to trust, but he is sweet to the core. Prince landed at the shelter last year. He was adopted by an elderly couple, but returned several months later when they both fell ill. Handsome Prince has since had a couple of suitors, but unfortunately nothing has worked out for him. PLEASE SHARE!
Prince's ideal home will include other well-adjusted dogs, which has proved to help give him more confidence. His adopter will be someone with a little patience and a ton of love!
@soozie420 writes, "This curly-haired, 7-ish year old sweetheart has the energy level and athleticism of a young dog. Prince is very eager to please and is highly intelligent. He is ridiculously affectionate and loyal, once trust is established with his person/people. With strangers, he is timid, but never aggressive. Just cautious. Prince is clearly #nonshedding. To me, he looks like a lamb!
When he first got here, it took Prince several days to settle down. He is still a bit tentative with my husband, but has been improving every day. Prince very much enjoys the company of other dogs. In fact, my own dogs have helped Prince with his confidence level, especially when he first arrived. Although he has not been tested, I think Prince would be ok with kitties.
Prince has obvious trust issues but once you win him over, he's your friend for life. He reacts to loud noises (he's a good watchdog!) and to people coming and going, by barking, but he quickly settles down. He understands 'go potty' but needs reminding. When he first arrived, he did 'mark' a bit, but I quickly corrected that behavior and he has been much better.
He sleeps uninterrupted through the night, he eats well and enjoys any and all treats that are offered. With a little patience and gentle guidance, Prince will be an amazing, well-behaved dog and an ever-loyal companion." All adopters must fill out an adoption application and be able to meet Prince in person on #LongIsland.
