Pet Allies in Show Low AZ

Blue is a purebred male Rat Terrier, about 25 pounds. In his foster home, Blue enjoys spending the day on the couch with the other dogs (one picture  shows him with Leah).  He is PERFECTLY house trained using a doggie door.  Blue will take treats from his foster mom’s hands but prefers not to be petted because he grew up as a “backyard breeder” dog with little human interaction.  He makes small improvements every day.  For example, he has gradually started sitting closer to his foster mom.  Blue is good with most other dogs, although he does not like to play with them.  He is a quiet dog who rarely barks.  We were told Blue is 10 years old, but he is in excellent health and looks like a younger dog.  He has many years to live and love with a patient person.  

A home visit may be part of the adoption process. To start the adoption process, an online adoption application is available at    

Pet Allies, also known as the home of the Barkin Basement Thrift Store at the corner of White Mountain Road and Fawnbrook in Show Low, finds non-lethal solutions to pet overpopulation by offering low-cost spay/neuter services and placing homeless pets in caring homes.  Pet Allies, a non-profit organization, is funded by donations from the community, sales at the Barkin Basement Thrift Store, grants and adoptions.  In October 2012 Pet Allies also entered into a contract with the City of Show Low to operate the City’s animal control shelter where animals may be seen and adopted.
