Richard's Story...
Meet Richard! Richard is one of our Project Dogs, a shelter program designed to help dogs with fear and other socialization issues overcome these obstacles and go on to find forever homes. Richard was pretty fearful when he first came into the shelter, but is doing SO great now! Richard is a gentle dog and overall very mellow. He enjoys walks (and walks great on the leash!), sniffing around the play yard, and cuddle time with his human pals. Everyone that meets Richard loves him and he returns the favor. Richard had a great day foster outing recently and even got along great with some kids that he met. Richard is calm, loving and friendly- truly, all he wants is to be a part of a family! Richard is currently kenneled by himself, but passed the shelter's dog eval. As always, we recommend dog intros prior to adopting, so bring your dog from home in and we can help you make sure everyone gets along.

If you want a quiet and mellow large dog, Richard is the one for you! You can meet this handsome fella in E building at the West Valley Animal Care Center in Phx (2500 S. 27th Ave.). Hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon-Fri and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sat & Sun. Four year old Richard's $20 adoption fee includes rabies certificate, County license, neuter and microchip!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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