well.. i've been meaning to post Princess' story in here and i guess i might as well do it now.. it all happened on march 5th when my moms friend Julie told me that her cousin Donna was giving away a Boxer puppy but then she decided to keep the pup but was getting rid of the mom, Princess, so i told her that would take her in.. and thank god i talked my moms bf into letting me take her cuz when i went over there the next day (march 6th) to see her.. she was in their backyard behind the trailer chained to a tree curled up in a little ball! there was no food/water/or shelter! i couldnt believe what i saw.. Julie told me that Donna wasnt allowed to have pets in the trailer even though she keep the little puppy in the trailer.. as soon as Princess heard us coming she jumped up and started beaning and got oh so excited.. and i noticed i could see her ribs/spine/hips and i also noticed she had no tail at all (which turns out i found out that Donna had put a rubber band around her tail and then cut it off! makes me sick when i think about it).. and right then and there i decided on taking her.. and i though she was a little over a year old but turns out she was 11 months and already had a litter of boxer mix pups! after taking her home she would freak out when ever we left but eventually she realized we would come back home every time we went out somewhere.. i've had her for 8 months now and she is just a amazing dog.. if u saw her u'd never know that she was treated the way she was.. she is so spoiled and soaks up any attention given to her.. i couldnt imagine life with out her... after a couple months of taking Princess in her old owner Donna decided that she didnt want Princess' last pup anymore and if she couldnt find a home for him she was gonna take him to the pound.. but he did find a new home... which is great.. if i could of i would of taken him in..
