Princess is a 14 year old spayed Black DSH that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner adopted Princess from SIACC as a kitten 14 years ago.
According to the owner, Princess doesn’t pay any mind to strangers. She does not bother to interact with strangers. Around adults and children, Princess is respectful and relaxed but she doesn’t play. She has never been around cats so her behavior is unknown. Around a large size dog, Princess is very tolerant and respectful. She has never bitten a person or another animal before.
Previous owners stated that Princess does not have any behavioral or litterbox issues. Owner did not bath or brush Princess’s coat due to Princess not allowing it. Princess is front declawed so owner did not trim her nails. Princess allows being picked up and held but only for a very brief period of time, she will attempt to struggle free when she has had enough. Princess growled and hissed when being placed in the carrier.
