Meet Priscilla! Priscilla, a Chihuahua/Border Terrier mix originally from Tennessee, arrived here as a puppy in 2018. This loveable girl has a condition called microvascular dysplasia, a rare congenital disease that can affect blood flow in the liver. Priscilla is also on a special prescription diet to control epileptic seizures, and will likely remain on seizure medication for life.

After her evaluation and initial treatment, she entered the home of one of our expert Foster Care parents for the very best preparation to be adopted.

In spite of Priscilla’s special needs, she has proven to be a very sweet, affectionate dog. As a Sponsor Pet, Priscilla’s medical needs are guaranteed to be met. And this is only made possible by supporters of North Shore Animal League America’s Pet Sponsorship Program. Thank you!

Affectionate. Smart. Fearless. Loves to run and play. These are just a few of the ways Priscilla’s foster mom, Marilyn, describes this sweet girl!
Priscilla, who is still looking for a responsible, loving home to call her own, enjoys running around the yard with her canine foster sibling (even in the rain!) and playing with her toys. And she’s recently learned some new commands like “come” and “stay.” With the help of prescribed medications, taken twice a day,- Priscilla’s seizures have been significantly reduced, allowing her much more time to simply enjoy life. Thanks to the support of her Sponsors, “Silly Priscilly,” as she’s affectionately called by Marilyn, continues to thrive.
