Killer Swag's Info...

Killer Swag's Story...
I know what you're thinking... Killer? Who would name a dog that?! We thought the same thing, honestly.

Killer, who if you haven't figured out yet- is not a killer at all ;) We kept the name, honestly because we found it to be so untrue its kind of funny & he responds well to it.

He was surrendered to the shelter on December 23rd. The day before Christmas Eve. The owners said his name was Killer & they have had him for 15 years!! They said he isn't good with cats, dogs or kids!! I still wanted to give him a chance & go meet him at the kennels.

When I did he let me pet him & while scared, seemed sweet. I decided no way was this little guy going to spend Christmas on cold cement just to be euthanized come early next week. So I took him home, bought him a sweater, new collar & told him- welcome to the first day of your new life :)

Killer has had zero issues with dogs or cats. I would still recommend no young kids as he gets nervous of fast movements & does better with confident attitudes.

He is mostly quiet in the crate, goes to the bathroom outside, occasionally gets playful & rough houses with the other dogs & loves to go on walks :) Our vet doesn't think he is 15- more so 8-10 years old. So hey you could still have another 10 years with this little guy! He has recently started working with our dog trainer & learning the place command, how to heel, wait for his food & building confidence over all.

His adoption fee is $50. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped & had a recent dental cleaning. He has a heart murmur & takes a pill for this easily. He LOVES veggies & also enjoying a raw diet! His adoption will come with some guidance on training & nutrition!

Let us know if you're interested in meeting this handsome dude :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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