Princess was born approx July 2016 and is a pocket pitty, small and short but is solid and weighs 40 lbs. She is a very sweet dog with a lot of energy. She needs a home with an active playmate. She gets along with dogs, people, and is super playful. She loves to play fetch and will bring the ball right back to your feet.

She loves life and has been through a lot for being so young. She and her brother arrived at the shelter with rat poisoning. They both survived, then both got parvo. She survived but unfortunately her brother did not. She was then adopted but was in a bad car accident with her prior owners. As a result, she had 3 severe fractures in her hind leg. Her owners dumped her on the street and a good samaritan found her limping and brought her back to the shelter. All of this happened before she was 6 months old! We rescued her from the shelter and had the needed surgery. Since the injury was old and had already healed, we were able to repair most of the fracture. All has healed completely and you hardly notice a limp if at all.
