*In foster care** Meet n Greets by appointment only*Prince arrived at the Kamloops SPCA along with his doggy "brother" Jose who has since found a home. Prince is a bit of a timid dog initially that needs slow introductions to new people and places but is very loving, loyal, and playful once he gets to know you. He's a real lap dog and will take any opportunity he can to cuddle. Prince does well with other dogs and cats though may occasionally be a bit of the boss. He really likes to go to town on his toys, tossing them in the air and shaking them. He will certainly be an entertaining companion. Prince appears to be fully house-trained though it is important to reinforce this in a new home and give plenty of opportunities to go out. He walks well on leash and enjoys going for walks.Princes Likes: The company of other dogs, toys, having a lap to sit on as much as possibleDislikes: Fast movements and loud noises, cold weather, occasionally his tail needs a good chasing to teach it a lessonPrince would be best suited to an adult only home without children and his new guardians must be prepared to work with him on his timidness. Going into new environments can definitely be a bit overwhelming on Prince, but once he warms up to people he becomes a loyal little companion that likes to follow you everywhere. Prince does have luxating patellas in his back legs that will need to be monitored and may need care in the future but don't currently seem to bother him at all.If you think you would be the right match for Prince please speak with our shelter staff about our adoption process.
