progress update: 8th Nov

Prince has now been rehomed !!

I am 9 years old and have spent all my life on a chain in a back garden.
The people who had me said I was no use as a guard dog, it took them 9 years to realise this.

So, they were going to get another dog and thought they would shoot me.

I’m not sure what this means but I’ve been told I had a lucky escape.
Having spent most of my life on my own I’ve not had much company and I love the company of humans,

I like dogs also but can’t get enough of the fuss and stroking that I have had recently.
Helen says I’m a good old mix of many breeds with a bit of terrier thrown in for good measure.

I’m also good with cats  well any company will do when you have spent your whole life on your own with no telly!

Prince is a 9 year old terrier mix.

He was kept all his life on a chain in a garden.

Apparently, his owners recently decided that he wasn’t a good enough guard dog and that they would get a puppy to replace him.

At first they were going to shoot him themselves, then asked a neighbour to shoot him for them.

He is very shy, and has been hit as he will sometimes shy away from sudden movements

As is often the case with dogs which have spent most of their time alone

he bonds with people very quickly.
