Hello! My name is Phoenix! I was surrendered by my owner to a rescue group. I am a male shepherd mix and I was adopted when I was about 4 months old. I am now 4-5 years old and 46 lbs. At home I am the sweetest dog that you will ever meet, I love to cuddle, take naps and I will do anything to please my owners. I love going for walks and runs. However, I am a bit fearful and I am startled by loud, unfamiliar noises. I take a minute to warm up to strangers, especially men. I am neutered and current on all of my vaccinations. I have been boarded multiple times and do well with other dogs, but I am selective on my property. I have not been around children or cats. I was surrendered because I nipped at a few people in the past. I spent time at a doggie “boot camp” learning how to sit, stay, place, come, quiet and leave it. My owners would like to keep me and work with me but with their first child born they simply could not give me the time that I need. At this point, the local humane society where I lived said that they would put me down if I am brought to them, so my parents found Paws and Tails Lifetime Companions to help me find my fur-ever home.

Thank you.

About Paws & Tails Lifetime Companions

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a home based small dog rescue organization. We provide food, shelter, exercise, basic training, vaccination and all medical care for our rescued dogs. We feed our dogs with 5 Star rated "Taste of The Wild" dry dog food supplemented by canned and home cooked meals. Adult dogs and puppies go through basic obedience training if they are long enough with us. You will have our support with feeding suggestions, health and training tips for the lifetime of your companion. By adopting you become a member of our extended family!

We love dogs and would like to contribute to lowering the suffering of our four legged best friends. We believe any small involvement makes a difference. Since we are a private rescue and re-homing organization, we always welcome your help with fostering and during adoption events. We need help setting up the event, walking the dogs, cleaning after them, showing dogs to potential new families and closing the event down.

We are also looking for foster homes to have rescue dogs feel like at home. Our dogs frequently have been in shelters and abandoned by previous owners. Therefore, they need your tender love and care. Wouldn't you like to give some TLC to a man's best friend?

If you know of any abandoned dogs in your neighborhood, contact your animal control center. You can also let us know and we will follow up on its rescue. If the dog is in Milwaukee and surrounding areas, we will do everything to attempt to save the dog.
