Phelps's Info...

I am good with dogs.

Phelps's Story...
Phelps, 10 months, was rescued from MCACC last month and named in honor of the Olympics Opening Ceremonies that day. After recovering from pneumonia, he’s bounced back…literally. He is a bit of a jumping bean; full of energy and sass.

He adores other dogs, and could play all day. Phelps’ high energy would be perfect for dock diving, agility, and obedience. Speaking of obedience, we don’t think he ever had any before. He is very smart and learned basic commands in hours. However, he needs someone who will be committed to emphasizing the basics with him.

This is the perfect dog for someone interested in a constant companion – hiking, classes, running, and more. A small Doberman at 45lbs, we think he actually may be part German Pinscher. His adorable crop n’ flop makes for super-cute photos and also makes it hard to say no to him. He does well in a crate and will make someone very happy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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