PRINCESS GRACE is a heartbreaking case with a fairy tale ending. Found tied to a fence by Good Samaritans, Grace was victim of a vicious and ongoing attack by another dog(s). After we were tagged in a social media post shared moments after she was found and asked if we could help, we met this dog within an hour and immediately made the decision to take her into our One Lucky Pup rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program, taking her right away to our emergency animal hospital, the Animal Medical Center, in Manhattan.
After a successful surgery to repair her face and jowl, and a week in the hospital with plenty of visits so that we could continue to get to know her and understand her temperament and what type of home she would be best suited for, Grace was discharged. We picked her up and placed her with one of our dedicated foster homes in Brooklyn where we worked with her for three weeks to rehabilitate her and get her adoption-ready. We work very hard for the dogs in our program and her recovery has been nothing short of remarkable, as illustrated by her portrait session, courtesy of Sophie Gamand Photography.
Gracie, affectionate with people, and dog and kid friendly, is estimated to be two-years-old, approximately 60lbs., Gracie is as gentle, obedient and smart as they come!
UPDATE: We found Gracie an incredible home with new mama, Tanya, and she is now living the good life in Manhattan!
