Seeking love this week is this 8-week old terrier mix. He is full of life, as all puppies are, will need obedience training (as all puppies do), continued potty training (as all babies do), and continued socialization with other animals and people. None of these needs are exceptional.
These 3 steps that I have outlined above are key to creating the most stress-less experiences for you as the owner, as well as for your pet. And, as a responsible pet parent all of these things must be taken care of for the well-being and safety of your animal, your family and neighbors as well as other animals you may encounter when outside of your home. It is our job as shepherds to safe keep the animals of the world; and when we choose to adopt we are committing to being a companion, a best friend, and a parent to a member of the animal world.
When we make this commitment we are making a promise to the animal that we will keep them safe, they can trust us with their lives. What this means is that you must make a secure, happy, environment for the dog that has rules and rewards. A happy dog living in a stress-free world is not a fearful dog. Never hit, kick or throw things at your dog. Dogs that are not fearful do not bite. This is great for the dog and good for you as the owner. Feed them and love them, socialize and train them and everyone will be happy. Dogs that are secure in the knowledge that you will return are less likely to chew, bark or have accidents when left on their own. So if you live in California and believe Princeton might be the puppy for you go and visit him. And only if there is a true connection between you and the dog, adopt him and care for him (or any puppy you adopt now or in the future) and please, please follow my 3 keys to successful dog parenting. Dogs love unconditionally, never hold grudges and know when you need extra love and attention so please give your pets the kind of love and attention and training they deserve.

Princeton is only 2-months old. He is much too young to die. In his young life, he has experienced abandonment, confusion, homelessness, and jail. It is time for him to find someone to share his love with, his life with. He sits on doggy death row and is scheduled to be euthanized on March 19th (2015) simply because he was born due to the irresponsibility of humans. Let me repeat, he IS in a kill shelter as I write this. So please pass this link around to your co-workers, your facebook friends, your blog followers or tweeting pals. Let’s get the word out about Princeton and find him a furever loving home!
I do NOT want you to adopt him because you feel sorry for him. I do NOT want you to adopt him if you cannot be a responsible, stable pet parent. What I do want is for you to pass his picture and location around the world on your social networks and give him the chance at a long life with a furever family.
To visit Princeton please contact the Delano Animal Shelter at: 661-721-3377 and provide his shelter I.D. # 03042015F-D01.
If you cannot reach them please try contacting the Delano California Rescue Shelter facebook page. They appear to be very devoted to getting animals out of the Delano shelter that Princeton awaits his execution at.
Remember, only if you are ready for a serious commitment should you consider adopting a puppy. Puppies take a lot of work but in the end they are well worth the time, effort and love. So please, feel free to repost or share this link for Princeton to find his home and to help educate people about being responsible puppy parents. Thanks from Memee and Princeton.
