Tripod Talent!

Prince is a very talented tripod! In February the handsome brindle Pit Bull won the ASPCA's 5th annual shelter dog talent competition for his amazing catching skills (check out Prince in action below).

Prince's talent as a catcher helped him capture the best prize of all: a forever home. Baseball fan Michael Garcia of Manhattan saw the video of Prince and was "inspired by his enthusiasm in the face of adversity." When Michael met Prince in person, it was love at first sight. Now, the two are inseparable.

"Prince means the world to me," Michael recently told the ASPCA. "He has a heart of gold. Each day I wake up and look at him - always smiling, tail wagging, and ready to start the day. Missing one leg doesn't dampen his mood, and as a result, I will never allow anything to dampen mine."
