PRINCESS, THE PIT BULL, LABRADOR RETRIEVER MIX THERAPY DOG (PART 2)

He brought Princess’s sisters, but they didn’t work out.

They didn’t want to walk and they were hard to train.

I tried to house break both of them, but neither would walk and I ended up dragging them.

I called up the original owner and asked him to take them back because it wasn’t working out.

He told me he had the runt of the litter and she was the last remaining puppy.

That was Princess.”

“Going on these walks makes it able to see how pushing through her challenges has paid off.

Our walks are a mutual understanding of what we do in the morning and represent the respect we have for each other, as well as her accomplishments.

It’s a great way to spend the morning and we both love it.

Joy Rides is an amazing organization.

They transported Bailey and hundreds of thousands of other dogs from kill shelters in the south and bring them up north for adoption.”

“Bailey finally understands that I run.

She does her own thing, but always catches up with me.

It’s so much fun to see the progress that she’s made.

It was hard for her to adjust to living in the city coming from a shelter in Texas.

She had bad separation anxiety.

We worked with a trainer, took classes, and it required a lot of patience.”

“Bailey is the focal point of our family.

Everything we do revolves around her.

Now that we’ve had her for almost a year, she has settled into our daily routine.

My favorite think to do, is go for our early morning walk in Central Park, where she is off-leash.”

“It was definitely love at first sight.

We didn’t want to go home without her.

We were lucky enough to take her home that day.

She is great in the city, but was originally saved from a kill shelter in Texas.”

I followed a number of rescue organizations on Instagram and saw an image of Bailey on See Spot Rescued, and I fell in love with her.

My husband and I applied right away.

They checked out our references pretty quickly and then we went to meet her.”

“I’ve always volunteered for different animal organizations.

Guiding eyes for the blind was one, and more recently, Bad Ass Brooklyn Rescue.

Working with the rescue animals inspired me to adopt a rescue dog.”

“In general, just in my last year of college when I didn’t have any roommates and I decided to live alone in New York, she has been my only roommate and companion and it’s great because she is there for me every step of the way.

When I transition, she transitions.

She’s something familiar and provides me with a real sense of stability.”

“I just graduated from undergraduate school in May and came to NY a month ago for graduate school.

We rented a truck and drove up to New York City for 16 hours.

It’s a big transition coming to New York City from the suburbs of Alabama, but Tally is doing great.

She is occasionally skittish around the noises of the city, but she loves the energy here.”

I’ve taken her on the train a few times and she is relaxed.

She has no problem with the subway.

“Tally was a very curious puppy and got into anything I left on the floor.
