Meet Priscilla

Due to family allergies, Priscilla has been living in an outdoor kennel most of her life.

With a guesstimated birthday in Feb. 2021, Priscilla weighs about 50 lb.

Priscilla is learning to enjoy walks on a leash. She's leash-savvy, but will pull. She's friendly to polite dogs when introduced appropriately and loves people.

Due to Priscilla's recent kenneling, she is having to relearn house manners. She's shown a tendency to potty outside on her breaks, but wait to have her BM when she comes back in. This will take time to correct as she's very excited outside, so forgets that she has to go. She is comfy in a 42" crate and will go into an empty crate to nap. She is currently confined in the kitchen at night so she has room if she must eliminate. During the first 2 week period, she had a BM only once and no potty accidents unless her foster woke up very late (after 9 a.m.).

Priscilla is afraid to get in a car, and is nervous initially. After about 3 minutes of riding she'll lie down and relax. She doesn't infringe on the driver's space.

Priscilla has the husky double coat, so will need a family who is willing to brush her when it's shedding season (late Spring to early Summer).

She is learning to make eye contact with her foster family. Due to lack of socialization, she hadn't learned that people are important. She's now coming up to her fosters, in the pack as modeled by the other dogs, for attention and affection.

**********

Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention. We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience. Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies.

Not all foster dogs are available for viewing during public events at Tractor Supply (360 Blowing Rock Blvd) in Lenoir, NC. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is www.petpartnersrescue.org.
