Backstory: Princessa was found in the streets of Mexico in terrible shape. This poor baby had a sprained leg, mange, ehrlichia and anemia. On top of that she was beyond the point of starving. She was put on Doxycycline for 30 days, Nexguard and dewormer. She is now a healthy weight and very playful. She knows sit and stay but still needs obedience training. She loves human attention and being pet. Her favourite thing is squeaky toys.
