Princess was found as a stray in a small Texan town. A kind man named Mr. Richard was known in the community for providing food and shelter to unwanted dogs. When Mr. Richard became terminally ill, his dying wish was to find a safe place for his largely unsocialized pack. HUA caregivers drove for many hours in dangerous weather to the humble home where the dogs had been left. It took the entire day to round up the very scared and confused pups, but finally they made their way back to the HUA shelter. Volunteers and caregivers spent several month socializing these precious animals, and finally they are ready to find homes of their own. Princess has been a work in progress. She was the most difficult to capture and has been a challenge to socialize. The poor dear was afraid of her own shadow. She had a tough time feeling any kind of joy or happiness. Gradually, albeit slowly, Princess has begun to blossom. She takes great comfort from having another dog around, and this gives her the confidence she needs to enjoy attention and affection. She makes us laugh when she tries to pretend she is not savoring her tasty treat which she takes begrudgingly. Princess Richards needs a quiet home where she can continue to come out of her shell. She is worth every moment of patience.
