Meet Phoenix. This pretty girl is a 4-year-old old pittie who lost everything in a house fire. Thankfully all living beings made it out safely, but the house is a total loss and the family is displaced for quite some time while they rebuild. As a result, Phoenix has gone from a pampered indoor dog to an outside dog who is living in a pole barn. She is often alone and getting pretty bummed. Unfortunately the home where they are staying already has two dogs who really don't want to share anything with Phoenix. The family has realized that Phoenix needs more than they can currently provide for her.

Phoenix is a really great dog. She is friendly with everyone, even children. She has never lived with kids, but she has had short-term short-stack visitors. She usually says hi, then goes about her business. She does great with other dogs. It's too bad the dogs in the current home didn't give her a chance because she would have loved a buddy or two.

Phoenix has great house manners and knows basic commands. she isn't hyper at all, but does love to play with any toys you give her. She has always had a fenced in yard to run around in safely. Phoenix loves cuddle time and wouldn't mind sleeping in bed again. She loves her people (and new people, too).

Phoenix is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. She is solidly housebroken and crate trained. Her family had been letting her roam free in the house when unsupervised before the house fire. We are confident that she will be trustworthy in a new home too.

If you are interested in meeting Phoenix please complete an adoption application on our website at Her adoption fee is $150.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
