Who could resist 4-year-old Priscilla, a Terrier mix with one eye, bad knees and a Santa suit in March?
When Arizona RESCUE found Priscilla at the pound, she was in heat, and had a bladder infection and a cold. But nothing could keep this furry unsinkable Molly Brown down. She was happy to greet her rescuers, has since recovered, and now she just wants a home where she will be appreciated for her merry tail-wagging attitude.
Priscilla sees fine through her one usable eye, and her bad knees don't cause her pain or require medical treatment. She loves to go on walks, run and play with other dogs. She also loves belly rubs and will flop over right in front of you to request one.
She is happy, affectionate, easygoing, and makes the folks at RESCUE smile every day.
And she has the Christmas spirit all year long.
