This week’s featured dog is Precious, an (approximately) 18-month-old Terrier/Mix who was surrendered to ACCT by her former owner. Precious needs to find an adopter or foster as soon as possible (she only has 48 hours!).
This brindle beauty is mild-mannered and generally well-behaved but was never taught any commands in her previous home. Luckily, she now has a “Pen Pal” who is working to help Precious learn basic commands. It will be great if Precious can find an owner who will continue to work with her on obedience. However, Precious is already an expert at some important aspects of doggie behavior! Miss Precious is an excellent leash walker and is generally very polite when she is meeting new people – children included – even though she is clearly excited to see them! Additionally, Precious is very well-behaved in the car.
Precious weighs under 40 lbs and has adorable floppy ears and a cute little snout! She was recently “fixed” and is hoping to get into her forever home pronto!
The shelter vet staff found a mass under her chin which will require surgery to remove it. While the shelter can perform the surgery, she cannot recover in the stressful shelter and needs a home where she can relax. PLEASE consider bringing Precious home. Email her Pen Pal at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This dog is currently enrolled in the Pen Pal Program at the Animal Care & Control Team (ACCT) of Philadelphia. ACCT is located at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19140. Adoption Hours are Monday-Friday, 1pm-8pm and Saturday-Sunday, 10am-5pm. Foster Care Hours are 9am-6pm every day. Stop by and save a life!
