03/25/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Lovely Priscilla has remained shy and subdued until now. She will obey what ever order you give her. She comes when called, sits on command, hops on the bench near me and walks calmly on the leash. She could even be house trained. Priscilla is only nine months of age but seems to have already been a mother. She has been beautifully cared for, though and is absolutely gorgeous. I love her lioness face and her pleading eyes. She is so out of place. She so would love to be home with her family… I always find her laying in a corner of her kennel, barely moving and asking silently:”Leave me in here…I feel safer…”.Priscilla is with us as her owners were going through some hard times. I hope they will come back for her and if not, a loving home and a caring family will heal Priscilla’s broken heart. Let’s wait and see and hope that soon enough, a lucky star will shine again over little Priscilla.
