Prince Edward, a Manchester Terrier mix puppy, was surrendered to Animal Humane from an unexpected litter in May. Edward arrived with four litter mates and his mother, who all spent several weeks in Foster Care while the puppies grew strong and healthy.

In fact, all of Prince Edward’s siblings and his mother were adopted within 5 days.
