If there ever a dog version of “Braveheart,” here he is. Meet the handsome, young Phoenix. He was
found as a stray and was extremely thin and skiddish. After a few days of giving him food, a Good
Samaritan was finally able to lure him into her car and he’s now safe and getting lots of love and
attention at Saving Paws AZ.

We don’t know anything about this guy’s previous life, but we’ve learned that he is extremely sweet and
seems to be very good with all people. Poor Phoenix was covered in ticks, but after many baths and
treatments, he’s tick free and ready to start a new life with a loving family.

Phoenix walks well on a leash and seems to be a quick learner when given commands. He is still a bit
skiddish, but is warming up quickly. He’s still quite thin also, but we are working hard to put some
healthy weight on him. It won’t be long because he’s a very good eater! Poor guy was probably starving
out there on the streets.

We don’t if he’s good with children, but it’s possible since he does seem to have a very sweet
disposition. We also don’t know if he’s good with cats.

As always, if you are interested in a Saving Paws dog, you must fill out our 
online application
 to get the
approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application! All staff
members are volunteers and aren’t compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and
full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient as sometimes it takes up to 5 days
to process an application.

About Saving Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.

"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.

"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Saving Paws is a registered 501c3 not for profit corporation. All personnel are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations of food, supplies and dollars always appreciated and allow us to help more dogs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.

"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

"Saving Paws" works individually with each potential adopter to assure a good match and successful placement. The specific adoption process can vary and includes:

* Telephone and or email consultation.
* "Meet & Greet" with selected animals. We request that all family members and pets be present.
* Adoption application and reference check.
* Home visit
* Completion of the adoption process.
* Any additional follow up or assistance required.

Adoption fees and donations offset the extremely high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses.
