Princess Grace is looking for her majestic kingdom. Grace, aka Gracie, is in search of her fur-ever kingdom of love, kisses and reassurance.

Grace is a 3-1/2-year-old healthy, beautiful girl. Grace was surrendered to the Village as a retired momma who has suffered an anal prolapse. When Grace came into our care, she desperately needed the surgery site to be cleaned and examined. After examination, we realized the suture was not allowing her to poop. We made the decision to remove the suture and see what happened. Thankfully she was able to use the potty again and the anal prolapse healed very well!

Grace really wants to find a fur-ever home where she has doggy siblings to help her continue to gain her confidence.  Grace takes a lot of social cues from her foster siblings. She is a follower not a leader. Grace currently lives with two other male Frenchies. She has been socialized around many different people including school aged children and as her name proceeds her, she a special impact on all those she meets. Everyone loves this little princess. She has had a brief encounter with the residential vet’s cat and showed no interest in him. Grace, however, does have a small prey drive; she absolutely goes crazy when she sees a squirrel or bunny rabbit in the yard.  She is constantly searching for them when it’s time to go potty. Foster mom reports a small re-direct (saying her name) usually gets her back to the task at hand. Grace loves anything soft to lay on and has no problem with sleeping on the sofa! She loves to jump. Currently in her foster home she is learning to use ramps to get on and off the sofa but she has no problem jumping onto furniture if she feels like it. She is definitely a queen in the making! Grace loves to be near you and will curl up in a suitcase, pile of clothes, whatever is soft and the closest to her humans. She absolutely loves to get kisses and be loved. She has a cute little twirl dance when she gets excited and when there is food involved! She is still learning basis commands. Grace is partially housebroken and she does well on a constant schedule.

Grace is a timid girl who is still learning the ropes of living in a home. She is a shadow and will follow you wherever you go. She is the happiest when you’re with her. She will pick her human and be your sidekick for life. She does have a tendency to do a low Frenchie howl when she protests being put into a crate. She does fine when her other doggie companions are in the room with her and does not protest at night when sleeping in the room with her foster parents. Grace needs a home where they will continue our efforts in making her feel completely comfortable in her own skin. She needs direction to feel safe and loved. Grace has only known the life of a kennel and her foster home.

Foster mom said Grace came into her home and immediately fit into her pack. She is a docile girl who needs a strong but gentle owner to help continue making her feel safe. Are you that family that can make this royal girl feel like a Queen?
