Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog.  Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture.  While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face.  Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home.  We want to create furever families. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application.  You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side.  You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

Weight: 15 lb

What is my personality like? Phoenix was originally turned into a kill shelter for nipping a child over a treat. In his time here with us, we have seen a little bit of behavioral issue but they have only gotten better. He will take a treat out of your hand - no problem. But he doesn't like for you to try and take bones, toys etc away from him.  Phoenix is extremely food and treat motivated - will work for food! 

He is affectionate and likes to sit on your lap -although he is independent and will come to you when he is ready! Phoenix loves to sit on the couch and watch the world pass by. He walks great on a leash and is crate trained. He does get along with other dogs although needs to be an only dog. He shares his space well outside but not inside (with other dogs). He would be fine going on play dates with your friend or neighbors dog!

Phoenix went on field trip and did awesome. He greeted everyone (people and dogs) with a smile. He rode great in the car and walks well on a leash.

Who am I looking for? Phoenix is looking for someone who is experienced with dogs. He needs a strong-minded parent as he is a strong-minded dog. He will bond quickly with someone. Phoenix is seeking an adult only, only dog home!  

Age: estimated birthday is October 2006

Please note - we do not ship dogs.  If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home.   You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc.  Others here may be a better fit for you.  It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description.  Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a  dog not in our listings yet.  We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
