Plenty of Pets

Princess is a five-year-old Maltese-Bichon mix who needs a quiet, child-free home.

She weighs six pounds, is spayed, up to date on vaccines and will be micro-chipped.

Princess loves being held and is okay with cats, but does not like other dogs at all. She is afraid of children and will snap at them if they get close.

She can be vocal when she’s frightened or wants attention, so an apartment would not be suitable for her. When’s she’s stressed she will sometimes chew at a paw and leg, so she needs to be with someone who can help her build confidence and be comfortable in different surroundings.

In the right home, Princess will make a wonderful, loving pet.
