Prince

Prince

Prince has passed over the Rainbow Bridge on Good Friday, 2016.


In 2007 we adopted Prince from a family in Perth Amboy who could not keep him or Oreo. We are heart-broken to share the news that we had to put Prince down on Good Friday. He had been showing signs of old age (eye sight, hearing loss and joint discomfort) but beyond that the vet surmised he may have also been harboring cancer that emerged suddenly and escalated quickly. Since he was 13-16 years old, we opted for humane euthanasia.



He was an amazing dog with a sweet disposition who was always protective of his family. We were lucky to adopt him and have so many quality years with him. He enjoyed nearly the last year down the Jersey Shore in Asbury Park and always drew compliments. Thought you might want to know.

Sincerely,
John and Robin Feinstein


* We do not permit adoptions of shelties as gifts. If you would like to give one as a gift you can contact us for advice on how to handle the situation.
Please note that we do NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10. Herding dogs, especially shelties, tend to chase whatever/whoever is running & they often will nip at the back of legs in their attempt to gather everyone into a neat, manageable area.
If you cannot adopt but would like to sponsor one of our seniors or special needs dogs, please email Aneita.
