Hello, friends! My name is Phoenix and I am one of the most special pups at KGARL. When I arrived here, I was so thin and sick that they were afraid I was not going to make it. They have taken such good care of me and I am so excited to tell you that I am now ready to go to my FOREVER home!! I hit a few bumps along the way and it has taken a long time to get me healthy. I was treated for heartworms and the vet and the wonderful lady caring for me discovered that I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, or EPI. What does this mean for my forever family? I will require special food and cannot eat anything else or I may get sick again. Also, I have to take medicine every day. I don’t mind, though, because I know it keeps me healthy and I feel SO much better.
I am a sweet, playful young man and with the proper care, they say I can live a long, happy and healthy life. I am so lucky that I was brought here and given a second chance. I get along well with other dogs and cats. I love to be scratched and cuddled and PLAY! I am housebroken and neutered, too!
I am anxiously awaiting a family of my very own and cannot wait to meet you! I have become a sort of mascot for KGARL and heard that I am pretty famous around here. They love me very much and are so proud of the progress I have made and they will miss me very much. I will be forever grateful to KGARL for saving me, but would love to have a family of my very own. I may come with a few more instructions and expenses than some dogs, but the love you will receive in return is priceless.
