Adoptable Dog of the Week- Princess Sploot

Get ready to fall head over heels for this pretty pooch! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Princess Sploot, a 3 and a half years old American Pit Bull Terrier mix from Richmond, Virginia. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Princess is a sweet girl but would do best either as an only pet or in a home with other dogs with an experienced adopter. She needs an adult-only home because of her size- she weighs 58 pounds.

Princess Sploot’s Tale

Unfortunately, this lovely doggo was surrendered by her owner due to no fault of her own- the living circumstances changed and her owners couldn’t care for her anymore so they wanted to get her a home she deserves. Princess is the sweetest pooch you’ll ever meet- she’ll stick to you like glue. She is really affectionate and loving and will try her best to be as close to you as possible. When she gets the love and attention she craves, she can get a bit too excited though, so she can start jumping around- while that can be really cute to you, it could mean that she inadvertently knocks over a kiddo, so it’s best that she goes to a home without kids or with older kids in the family.

Princess has a kind heart and a friendly character but hasn’t been properly socialized yet. She is playful with other dogs but that can escalate into mouthy play because she hasn’t had experience before. Owing to this, her rescuers recommend for her to be the only pet in the household. She could get along with another pooch but it would require patience and proper introduction, so only if you are experienced with dog socialization!

To learn more about Princess Sploot and how to adopt her, contact Richmond Animal Care and Control. Hopefully, you’ll be lucky enough to call her your new family member!
