These Shelter Dogs Dressed Up As Prince To Help Find Forever Homes

Animals strike serious poses.

Posted on

The shelter dogs at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter in Valley View, Ohio, don't mind wearing a cute outfit or two.

"I think it's obvious we're all still mourning the loss of Prince," said Naticchioni. "We're saying good bye to him by putting it on the friendly faces of dogs."


Nesquick, a "flirty" 3-year-old Spaniel mix, "thinks she's got the look," said the shelter.

Rosie, a 2-year-old pit mix and a huge Prince fan, honored the artist by giving her best rendition of the song "Kiss." Lisa, a spunky 3-year-old pit, shows her best Prince grin.

Naticchioni said Rosie, Nesquick, and Lisa are all available for adoption. Ladybug was adopted on Tuesday.
