Shelter Dog Hits Ten Years in Adopted Home

Shelter dog, Princess hits 10 year mark in her adoptive forever home. "Princess couldn't be a better dog," says owner. "She has been tolerant of 2 year old Willie, a very active and noisy hound dog mix that tries to chew her back legs, and cry when he doesn't have the toys.  She treats him well."

Princess, a dingo mix was rescued after living with homeless people who left her behind near Fulton Industrial Blvd in Atlanta.  She was trying to survive in 20 degree weather with puppies, all near starvation. She began to be fed by Atlanta Grotnes, a machine company that had to lure her with fast food from Wendy's. She was taken home by a wonderful employee, Myra Kimmerling, as a foster home in a thin, rough condition.  Princess tested heartworm positive and underwent extensive treatment.  After a long recovery process, she turned into a playful puppy.

Princess then found her forever home with a dentist, +Kirk Kimmerling DDS. She still looks like a young pup.

It's been 10 years with the Kimmerling's in January, and +Marietta Vet Clinic, and veterinarian, +Julian Peckich DVM are happy to welcome Princess to the vet family.  Congrats Princess on winning the lotto!
