Welcome the wonderful dog, formally known as Prince, to Minnesota!

He is a special boy. Extremely gentle and friendly. He is an expert in the Golden lean and joyfully intercepts you if you're even thinking of leaving him. He also loves snuggles and cuddles.

While he's estimated to be 2, I would guess closer to 3 years. He lacks the frenetic puppy go-go-go mojo juice I'm used to.

He sits well especialy when a treat is involved. But he doesn't respond to his name well (like, at all). He did escape yesterday by rushing the gate, but loves car rides, so hopped right in when I caught him sniffing around the parking lot across the street. He was a bit nervous.

Except for an ear infection and yeast, he's very healthy. He's getting ear drops twice a day for 2 weeks.

He was very good with 2 older male dogs, my resident Duke and former foster Charlie. Charlie tried to teach Prince how to open the fridge, and Duke how to bark at the mailman.

Luckily, Duke is very good-natured and didn't mind being on the bottom of the dog pile as they competed in seeing who could sit next to me on the couch.

On Prince's first day, he charmed everyone in Shakopee at the meet-and-greet. Thus, he could well be Prince Charming.

Pulling a Mikey - a former RAGOM dog I temp fostered. He spent most meet-and-greets in a chair.

Prince walks well, pulls a little bit, and gets along with all the other dogs I've introduced him to. He'd love to play, but the old farts Duke & Charlie play for 30 seconds, then lie down.

Minnesota sure has tasty sticks.

Prince is ready to meet his forever family. He's a fabulous boy, and will be coming to the Edina meet-and-greet this weekend. Someone will be especially lucky.


Prince had a marvelous time at the Edina Meet-and-Greet and helped entertain a few parties with Duke and Dad!

Foster dad had already started talking to the prospective adopters and told them on Sunday that they would be great new parents!

Prince is off to Iowa, to a 40-acre farm with a 1/4-acre fenced yard. An older sister, a ma and pa who also have a boat on a lake just for the dogs to enjoy! Prince was such a nice dog that he was hard to give up. Duke and Foster Dad wish him the VERY best even though he'll be in Iowa!
