Meet Phoenix. He came to Rescue in 2014. Soon after arriving he became paralyzed from the waist down after committing one of his scandalous deeds. He was rushed to Azzore Veterinary Specialties in Russellville, AR where Dr. Dew did back surgery on him. That surgery with diagnostics was $3600 and Hooray!!! Phoenix walks again!! He must now wear a belly band and has questionable control. He is currently up for adoption, but his new parents would have to be committed to helping him have a comfortable life. The new parents would sign a contract that he will receive appropriate vet care prior to any other options. He currently is able to walk with a limp, but has difficulties with slick surfaces and stairs. Despite his best effort, he sometimes does not make it outside. He is a handsome fellow and must have parents who are fully committed to him and his ongoing veterinary needs. Phoenix is a happy guy and always gets along with everyone and every puggy. If you have a Rescue heart, Phoenix is your man. He is very sensitive, so he must have very compassionate guardians.
Adoption fee will be $250.00
If you would like to be considered for Phoenix's forever family, please complete an adoption application and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
