+ A Cinderella story
A 10-week-old miniature pinscher puppy found a “happily ever after ending” at the Celebration of Pets April 12, at the Sarasota County Fairgrounds.
Shannon Gault, owner of Pupcake Pooch Parties, and her husband, Bob, set up a booth at the festival and learned there was a gray miniature pinscher up for adoption.
They learned that police rescued the puppy and her siblings after a neighbor discovered them emaciated and starving in the dirt behind a Bradenton home.
The Gaults already have two dogs — B.B., also a miniature pinscher, and Shadow, a miniature greyhound — but couldn’t let the young dog go after hearing her story. They decided to adopt her and will bring her home Wednesday.
No doubt, she will be treated like a princess.
Her new name: Cinderella.
