Our VIP , Arlington Police Department Furever Friday , shelter dog named Princess was featured on 99.5 The Wolf ! Here ' s why ... A few weeks ago , during that brutal winter storm , a good Samaritan named Mason heard a noise outside his door . When he opened it … there she was . A lost , stray dog who was covered in ice with frozen cold paws . It was 2 degrees outside and he knew this poor dog was freezing and her life literally depended on getting her warm as quickly as possible . Mason had lost power himself , but that didn ' t stop him from saving her life . He went to his truck , cranked the heat and took care of getting her warm until help could later arrive . She was never reclaimed and spent weeks in the shelter and Mason couldn ' t stop thinking about this special dog who he obviously bonded with and cared for very much . Mason decided to go even further for the dog , now named Princess , and reached out to 99.5 the Wolf where she was featured to help find her home ! A success it was , because Princess met her forever family with Amanda ! The love and connection was instant and we couldn ' t be happier for these new BFF ' s for life ! A huge thank you to Mason for saving Princess ' s life and 99.5 The Wolf for featuring this special dog and leading Amanda to our shelter !
