Today I’d like to introduce my current dog and first dog I adopted as an adult: Princess!

Happy Princess Princess

Breed

Half pit bull, half golden retriever, all love.

Birthdate

October 25, 2007

Gotcha date

Sometime in December of the same year.

Baby Princess She used to be so tiny!

Why’d you get her?

My brother and I had just moved into a house I inherited. He knew someone who’s dog had an accidental litter and needed to get rid of the pups, so he asked me if I wanted to get a dog. I grew up with dogs, I love dogs, so of course I wanted one! I chose her because she was the smallest of her litter.

Young Princess Princess not quite full grown yet.

How’d she get her name?

I named her Princess because that’s what she is! Honestly, though, it’s based on my last name. Read on if you’re interested:

Hendrix is a form of Hendricks, which is short for Hendricksen. Hendricksen is a Germanic form of Henryson, or son of Henry. Henry means “king” (or rather is a kingly name, as there are a lot of King Henrys). Of course, I couldn’t name her “Prince” because she’s a girl, so I named her Princess.

Tell me more about her.

She has a lot of energy. She’s nine years old and still thinks she’s a puppy. She’s very affectionate and loves to snuggle. Like most dogs, she loves walks. A couple years ago she swam for the first time, and now can’t get enough!

  • That particular image she’s swimming in a pool. It was the end of the season and the public pool had a doggy swim day. She loves swimming no matter where it is though, including rivers!

    She’s a beauty and I can see why you picked her!! I only adopt old dogs so I’ve never shared my life with a puppy but I imagine it must be a lot of fun.

  • A true princess; so lovely. We did adopt some adult dogs; they can bond just as strongly as puppies do. Cookie is not a princess, she is a duchess. Long story. She’s ok with that … Cookie, the Duchess of Noelville :-)

    She’s lovely! Most of the dogs I have had joined my family as puppies, but after adopting an adult dog, I don’t think I’ll ever have a puppy again.

  • What a beautiful girl! While I hate the fact that people have accidental litters, I’m very thankful Princess found a wonderful, loving home. I am so impressed with her natural swimming ability - must be the golden retriever in her.
