This small but mighty boy, Phoenix, is approximately 8 yrs. old and 9 Lbs. Possibly a Terrier mix? He has a nice mellow temperament and is such a sweetheart. He was rescued off of the streets of LA were he had spent several months fending for himself. He was in bad shape when Underdog Railroad stepped up to rescue and see to his care. He is on the mend now and so very deserving of a loving furever home.
Phoenix needs a Foster or better yet Foster to Adopt home to land in until his forever family finds him. If you have room in your heart and home to Foster or better yet Foster to Adopt Phoenix, please complete a URR application! Remember, URR sees to all a dogs needs while it is in foster.
To find out more about fostering for URR or about the URR foster to adopt option, please visit the Underdog Railroad Rescue website for details and to fill out an application.
Be sure to watch for updates about Phoenix on the Underdog Railroad Rescue Facebook page.
FOSTER TO ADOPT: This is a great way to get to know your potential forever dog and you are bringing the dog straight into its possible forever home, and that's always a good thing. You get to foster the dog with the intention on adopting if the stars all align. If URR and the FTA decide it’s a match, you adopt the dog! If you decide the dog is not the right dog for you and your lifestyle, we understand, and you would continue to foster until we find his/her forever home. The advantage of getting to spend time with your potential new family member is a huge bonus plus we provide all the pups needs while it is in a foster status. www.underdograilroadrescue.com/become-a-foster/
