Phoenix's fosterer writes...

Phoenix is a really sweet girl who was sadly taken back to the shelter by her family because one of them developed an allergy to her. She is missing her family but is so happy to be in a foster home and enjoying playtime in a big back yard. She loves to run and play and chase balls. However, she is also happy to rest on a comfy doggy bed. She definitely likes to be comfy and warm! Phoenix is a big lap dog who would love to watch movies with you on a Friday night after enjoying a nice walk around the neighborhood. We've discovered that she loves car rides!

Phoenix is doing great adjusting to her foster home, which includes a cat and a dog and two children. She likes to follow us around, or at least know where one of us is located at all times. We are still getting to know Phoenix, so we will post updates to her profile as we learn more about this super cute girl.

Phoenix is a wonderful companion who is looking forward to finding her forever home. Please come and visit her at one of your adoption shows. Her sweet face and affectionate personality will win you over!

If you are interested in Phoenix, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (

Phoenix IS expecting to attend the next adoption show, April 23rd at the Bowie PetSmart, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

We are an all volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adopted! Phoenix, a Bowie Basenji/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Boxer for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Basenji/Boxer dog from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie 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 Bowie 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 Basenji/Boxer breeders who help with Basenji/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
