Facts about Jack

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
My daughter brought Jack home as a stray from the AZ Mills parking lot. She made posters and placed them around the neighborhood where he was found; and we advertised him on Pet Finders. I also checked for a chip and looked at the bulletin board at the Maricopa East Mesa Animal Control to see if anyone had posted a missing-dog poster. No owner came forward. As a foster, we have treated him just as we have our dogs. We got him neutered, chipped and he is up to date on his vaccines. He has his county dog tag. We have done all these things in preparation to find him a forever home. The vet thinks he is between the age of 6-8, but that is an estimate of course. Dogs his size live to be 15-17 so he still has plenty of great years left. Loosing a few lbs will help his cause:)

Jack enjoys his crate. He is a nicely mannered, quiet guy and gets along with all dogs, kids and cats. If he hears a noise outside the house, he will bark but stops when verbally re-directed. He enjoys snuggling. He makes quite an impression on customers at the Pet Club we visit. He is a cutie pie and we fondly call him "our little football." He is small and weighs about ten pounds. He is a healthy dog who is about 2 pounds overweight. He enjoys his feedings. We have been feeding him twice per day. He is not on any medication. Jack is loving, inquisitive and understands basic directions. He knows his name. He enjoys food. He will sit for his food. He looks at you with those cute little eyes, tries to make a connection, and wants to understand what you are saying to him. He sleeps on a dog pillow in a crate at night. He is great on a leash. He quietly sits in the grocery cart when going through the pet store. He enjoys car rides. When you say, "Jack, go to your house" he immediately goes into the crate.

The reason for re-homing Jack is that we have our own dogs and cats. I've made a commitment to my other adoptees. Jack deserves an opportunity to have his own dedicated "forever family."

About Valley Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a pending non-profit, no-kill rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming adoptable cats and dogs. We have over 40 years of combined rescue experience and knowledge.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a kennel / shelter type of facility. We believe the most effective and successful way to match families and pets is to foster them in our own homes. Ultimately fostering our rescue animals in homes rather than a kennel environment allows us to give you complete information on the pet's behavior and how well he / she will fit with your family and lifestyle.

Our Adoption Process...

At Valley Dogs we make every effort to place the right animal in the right home. To aid in this goal, we use trained Adoption Consultants to help you select the best match for your lifestyle. You will meet with an Adoption Consultant and discuss your lifestyle, activity level, expectations, likes/dislikes, and past experiences with animals. Your consultant will then recommend the best match for your family and your lifestyle.
