Doc's Story...
Hi there! I'm Doc! I'm a sweet and spunky guy looking for furever. I came into the shelter as a stray on June 25th and no one has come looking for me. I'm a little confused about that, because I'm pretty awesome, if I do say so myself! ;-) My favorite human here at the shelter (she's writing this bio for me) says I'm HER favorite too! Can you imagine?! Out of the hundreds of dogs here, I'M her favorite! That's how I know I'm something special! Whenever she walks by my kennel, I wag my tail like crazy and hop up and down to show her how much I care. If that's the greeting she gets seeing me once a week, imagine how much love I have for my furever family! And yes, you read right- I hop up and down. The shelter has me listed at 9 yrs young, but I have plenty of spunk in me! The first week my human friend met me, I was a little shy and unsure of new places and people. I've really come out of my shell and even went on the local news to show off my cuteness! Sometimes I'm still a little shy with new things (like getting in and out of the car), but I'm learning that as long as my human pals are with me, I can handle new things! Maybe YOU'RE my new human friend? I'd sure love a furever. The shelter has taken good care of me, but it's time I go home! I have so much love and kisses stored up for my furever family- I hope you have a few belly rubs stored up for ME! ;-)

Doc is available for adoption through the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control, West shelter (2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx Az). He is listed at 9 years young! Adoption fee is $20 and includes Rabies certificate, county license and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Doc, a Phoenix Dachshund/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Chihuahua for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Dachshund/Chihuahua 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 Dachshund/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
