Pheonix's Story...
Brave, Sweet Phoenix Needs a Cozy Bed to Call His Own

1-2 year-old, medium-sized, male, black and tan, German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with cats: Unknown
Good with children: Unknown

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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