Prince is available for placement only to RESCUE and must have confirmed placement by Wednesday, July 14, 2021, 10am. Prince is an adult male, large mixed breed dog surrendered to the shelter by his previous owners. In the home, Prince lived with several adults, as well as multiple children ages 2-7 years old. He's described as "happy and "chipper and knows commands "sit and "paw and his intake notes suggest that he is also crate trained. Prince was surrendered after biting one of the children in the home. He is also described as "very aggressive to children, but other than the one reported bite on file, there is no context to provide further insight. In care, Prince was very stressed upon intake and lunged and snapped at staff during his intake exam. Prince has adjusted some and is now able to be handled, however he has also been diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and needs to leave the shelter urgently to have all of his needs met adequately. Confirmed placement is considered confirmation of an actual rescue pull. Possible placement, interested parties, and other "to be determined statuses are not considered confirmed and do not indicate an animal is no longer urgent. If you are an adopter interested in this pet, you must connect with a rescue partner that is willing to pull on your behalf.
