Prissy is looking for a new home

By isak, December 5, 2011

UPDATE:Plans have changed on Prissy’s home front and she will be staying with her owner. In an email she told me, “It is [good news for me] and for Prissy. I was brought to tears every time I thought about giving her up.” This is the best and happiest ending to this story that I could have wished for. Congrats!


In October, a trucker was killed in a freak, but fiery crash on I-10 in Houston. This man was the son-in-law of Prissy’s owner. Her  owner’s daughter was a couple months pregnant with their second child at the time. She is due to give birth in April and Prissy’s owner plans to be there with her, staying for a while.

The yard there is not fenced and Prissy’s owner is worried that Prissy will not get the attention she needs. So we are helping her look for a new home for Prissy.

Of Prissy, her owner writes,

She is 6 years only and I have had her since she was 5 months old. My daughter rescued her in Dallas and brought her to me. She had to have hip surgery 5 days after I got her and has done great.

She is Fox Terrier mix and weighs 13 pounds. She is very loving and likes sleeping with you.

She is potty pad trained, as I would not leave her out side when I was gone. She is up on all of her shots. I use Wellborn Vet Clinic.

She loves my grandsons; she has never bitten anyone but she does bark, a lot, at strangers and anyone who comes in my house until she gets to know them. She will jump in your lap after she gets use to you. She seems to bark more at men that anyone.

The vet said they weren’t sure if she was abused and that was what caused her hip injury or if she was born that way, but she was put out on the street at 5 months old and went into my daughter’s yard in Cedar Hill.


We are spreading the word to help Prissy find a new home. Currently, Prissy lives in College Station, TX. If you would like to know more about Prissy, you can call her owner, Charlene, after 6 pm at 979-219-8341.
