I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
After Being Left Chained to a Bench, Vixen is Ready for a New Life
2-year-old, large, female Belgian Malinois mix. Good with other dogs: Yes Good with children: Unknown Good with cats: Unknown
Yep, you read that right. Someone left Vixen chained to a bench overnight at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. But Vixen isn’t letting her past get her down. This girl is a very happy and sweet young lady.
Vixen is a pretty big gal, although we’re working to put some more meat on her bones, and she will need some structure and obedience training. But she is very sweet and eager to please. And how can you not fall in love with that face!
We don’t know if she’s good with children, but with her large size, it’s likely that she’d be better with older children who can understand that she hasn’t had the proper training to learn not to jump yet. She’s only two so she’s got plenty of time to learn lots of commands!
She’s a very active girl and will need a patient and dedicated family to help her learn how to be the best young lady she can be. She’s very smart, so obedience training should go smoothly. And we recommend an active family as she’ll need plenty of mental and physical stimulation.
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 are not 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.
