I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi, my name is Sierra! I'm a beautiful 3 year old floppy eared short haired mix of the All American Dog at 35 pounds of striped joy. Shy at first, I am loyal and loving. I am house broken with a dog door, spayed, chipped, and fully vetted. I have no medical issues. I am gentle and love to play with toys and get my belly rubbed. I'm smart and I really want to learn anything you want to teach me! I want to spend time by your side - that's my favorite thing to do. I like walks (and did I mention playing? Playing is just the very best thing). I think hiking would be fun too. I do, however, need to be the only dog in the house. My life before rescue was a nightmare - first I was abused, then I was dumped in the desert to die, and then I was taken in by a hoarder and lived on a chain around 60 other dogs who frequently fought and died. I never knew kindness, or petting, or love, before rescue. I feel compelled to chase kitties and small things that run. I get overwhelmed by other dogs and small children - even if they're nice to me. My foster mom tells you these things so you understand what I've been through. She also wants you to know that I LOVE PEOPLE. Once I understood that nice people existed, I really really wanted one of my very own! I'm not destructive, I only bark at the train, and I will smile at you and wag my tail like crazy when you come home and tell you every day just how happy I am to be your girl. I like men and women equally. I take a little bit to decide you're okay, so please don't take it personally if at first I don't recognize that you're my perfect person. I will always love you. Mom says if you'd like to meet me, we can set up a play date! Contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org. My adoption fee is $150.
We are a 501(c)(3) all volunteer non-profit that raises funds for outside medical care for the ill or injured animals at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control in both Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona. Shelter medicine is extremely limited and many dogs get put on the euthanasia list for issues that can be treated by full-service vets. Our fosters are all county shelter fosters and they help the animals heal in a home setting while networking them to find their forever home.

Our Adoption Process...
All of our fosters are still Maricopa County Shelter Dogs so the adoption fees and contracts will be the same ones used if the dog is adopted at the county shelter. We will do meet and greets with any other family animals and we do home checks.
