21-09-23 Handsome Prince is a gorgeous boy who has come from a home through no fault of his own. He is very scared of some men and won’t engage with them and will be protective of the females in his house and barks if a man approaches. He is a bit bewildered at the moment and will fight some dogs if he feels threatened and can be naughty on the lead towards dogs if not given enough space. He needs stability love and and an experienced adult only home to help to over come his fears.  Prince would be best in a home as an only dog.  We are told he is house trained but may have accidents as he settles into a new home and can walk on a lead. He does chase cats so a home without small furries would be best for this lovely chap. Little Prince is desperate to be loved and cannot wait to be back in a home with someone who will help him overcome his fears and if you have the love and time to help this boy please apply.

Prince by name & prince by nature. This wonderful boy deserves nothing more than to be treated like royalty. In Prince’s life before the kennels, he has witnessed things not many humans will have in their lifetime, and for that reason it has made him quite fearful of people, in particular men. For this reason we would suggest a female only home would be best suited for this sweet boy. After a short adoption stint, after not bonding with the male owner, Prince is very sad to be back in the kennels. Prince can be quite protective of his owner once bonded also, so being an only dog would be the ideal option, however he did previously live in harmony with a German Shepherd, so we would imagine a larger breed wouldn’t present an issue. Prince confidently walks on a lead, and goes out with volunteers on a daily basis, in the hopes we can build up his confidence and show him not all people are bad. We are told he is already house trained, good with older children, and is a very easy going dog in the right home.

It has now been over a month since Prince’s arrival at Many Tears. The longer Prince is here, the more sad he is becoming. Prince seeks comfort in his cuddly toys which he carry’s to and from his bed & outside basket during the day. Prince spends most of his day watching his furry friends from other kennels come & go, whilst he cuddles up in his basket waiting for his time to come.  Whereas Prince is quite scared of men, we are trying to build Princes confidence without making him uncomfortable, by introducing male members of staff to him & walking him with volunteer who are women who are accompanied by men.  I have fallen in love with this little man, as would anyone else who takes a chance on him.  He really is a gentle soul, and needs a gentle home that will love him endlessly like we all do here at the rescue.

Prince is such a sweet boy who is still looking for his forever home, with people he can trust. I met him today and he didn’t really want to come near me. After a while I tried treats and he started to come closer, but still wouldn’t let me touch him. Eventually he came and took treats, but still he didn’t want me to touch him. He will need time to build his trust in new people especially males.
He will walk on a harness, although he will need to start to trust you before putting the harness on, and he does react to other dogs when out. So Prince will need to be an only dog, in a relatively quiet home without children, and need a family with patience.After working with Prince he does come round and have cuddles with them and they can handle him easily, however for a new family this may take some time.

Well where do I start with this precious boy? I could literally give you a list of all the best things about Prince.. so i will!
  • There’s a 99% chance he’ll greet you with tippy tappy excited toes.
  • When walking Prince, the scenery will always come second best to the view of his little ears bouncing to the rhythm of his trot!
  • He has a favourite pillow which is a corner pillow and he absolutely loves to curl up inside it.
  • He loves to burrow around in soft blankets and you’ll often find him under one.
  • He’s very precise about his cosy set up and will move his pillow and blankets to his liking.
  • Back and belly scratches has him twisting and wiggling into you like a snuggly baby. He loves a good scratch and fuss! •
  • He loves toys and really appreciates it when he’s given a new one.
  • He tends to pick a favourite toy and will take it everywhere with him. (So far its been a cow teddy and a squeaky ball).

I’ll stop myself there because I could go on all day! As mentioned in previous updates, Prince has not had the easiest or fairest experience of life resulting in him being a little anxious and also wary of men. He’s being introduced to male members of staff and volunteers and he’s happy to give them a chance as long as they treat him with caution, patience and understanding. For all the bad this boy has known, he somehow still has so much good in him. Could you be the person to give our Prince charming a happily ever after?
