Prince is an older dog, but don't let that fool you! He still has lots of energy and desire to play. He can be pretty funny and he loves treats and people. He was found as a stray and nobody ever came back for him. Due to his age, he has been passed up time and time again. He does prefer being an only canine child, so going to a home without other animals would be best for him!

This is what a shelter employee has to say about him! "Prince just wants to rule your heart! This gentleman is looking for a retirement home that will provide leisurely naps, pets on demand, and dinner at 6 pm sharp. Don't let the salt and pepper fur fool you, though. He's full of life and loves treats, walks, and affection. He will seek out adventure by jumping the fence if left by himself outside for too long. He also prefers to rule alone without other animals around. Aside from those two quirks, he would make an excellent companion for your castle."
