Forrest's Story...
AHOY! All aboard the Chi Town Love Boat! Sure, my name is Forrest but by land or by sea, I'm sure to "take up anchor" in your heart! Okay okay, I know that's all pretty cheesy but did it get your attention?! A rescue dog has to work hard to stand out around here! Let me tell you about myself: to start, I'm super sweet and love to meet new people. My human friends say I'm a great combo of playful and affectionate. I enjoy a good romp with my furry friends but I also love cuddling with my human pals! I LOVE toys- chew toys are my favorite, things like ropes and Kongs! Do you have any of those at your house?! Oh and you've probably already noticed my heart melting eyes and gorgeous red/orange coat. My fur is super soft too, so you won't be able to stop petting me! I've got it all- looks AND personality! Come visit me and you're sure to fall in love. Let's sail all the way to your house and make ME the new Captain of Your Heart!

I am approximately one year old and 10 pounds. My adoption fee is $20 and includes shots up to date, county license and neuter. After some time in Chi Town, you can come visit me at the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control, East shelter at: 2630 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Forrest, a Phoenix Chihuahua/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Shiba Inu for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Chihuahua/Shiba Inu dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Chihuahua/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
