a message from Lulu:  we need foster homes for POTG's rescued dogs - most of us are seniors.  please help us by fostering.  it is temporary and gives us a chance to relax and enjoy the comforts of being in a real home.  boarding is no place for dogs of any age, especially seniors like me.  we get very stressed and the noise is unbearable.  it's just like a shelter - the barking and crying never stops.  please click below to foster a sweet dog like me.  love and KISSES from lucy lulu.

Princess is a 4-6 y/o hound-cur mix - she weighs 45 lbs., although she still looks like a puppy.  she is a very good girl - she loves to go for walks, is housebroken, leash-trained, loves to give hugs, loves people and is okay with most other dogs.  She is a hunting breed, her nose is always to the ground -- she does have a small prey drive so no cats or other small animals.
