Local rescue dog adopted after rare heart surgery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An adorable rescue dog is now home with her new family and ready to receive the "royal" treatment. 
     
This is princess, a four-month-old American Eskimo.
     
Princess was born with a defect that made it difficult for her heart to pump blood.
     
Thanks to the San Diego Humane Society and VCA Animal Hospital the puppy had rare, lifesaving heart surgery last month and was put up for adoption.
     
That's when Cynthia Royal stepped in, feeling an immediate connection with Princess.
     
The Humane Society says Princess is an example of the shelter's commitment to giving all animals the chance to lead a happy and healthy life.
