Prince William shelter has Coton de Tulears available for adoption

The Prince William County Animal Control Bureau was recently awarded custody of a large number of dogs that were removed from living in deplorable conditions and not receiving adequate care. The dogs are Coton de Tulears or mixes thereof and range in age from older puppies to adults, the shelter said in a news release.

The dogs have all received immediate veterinary care and continued care as needed throughout the duration of their stay as well as received a full grooming. Thanks to Lucky Dog Grooming in Manassas and the groomer from A Dog’s Day Out in Haymarket for donating their time to groom all of the dogs.

A number of these dogs will be made available for adoption at the Prince William County Animal Shelter and through  the Prince William Humane Society at their Adopt Shop in Dumfries beginning today.

These dogs will require owners who are willing to have patience and dedication to their housebreaking, socialization and training needs as they have rarely been outside of the confinement of the home they lived in, the shelter cautioned. Most have never been on a leash and may be very shy or skittish once separated from the others.
