Facts about Buddy

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Buddy is an 6 1/2 year old chihuahua/min pin mix with an amazing personality.

He was an owner surrender to county, emaciated and unable to completely use his back legs due to Valley Fever, but has made a miraculous recovery! He now has full use of his legs, gained a healthy amount of weight, and his valley fever titer number continues to decrease with his treatment. His foster family tell us, "every day is the best day for Buddy- he is amazing and absolutely loves life!"

Buddy lost his left eye to valley fever, it has now been removed and doesn't bother him at all, and he recently had a dental. He also has a thyroid issue, triggered by valley fever, that is easily managed with daily meds.

Buddy loves to sleep under covers, or snuggle with his people and his dog friends. He is learning to play, and his foster family has taught him a few basic commands and how to walk well on a leash. He may do best in a home without large dogs, as they make him nervous, but may be fine with a calmer one. He currently lives with 3 other small dogs with no issues. He is also house and crate trained.
He will need someone dedicated to his health, as he will continue to be on meds for Valley Fever for a few more months, thyroid meds for life, and possibly an eye drop for life to keep his one eye healthy.

Let us know if you have room in your heart and home for this wonder boy!

About Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

orever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is the only senior-only animal rescues in Maricopa County, Arizona. Formed in 2012 as a non-profit 501[c][3] organization, the focus of FLPS is to save senior animals who are often overlooked by providing them the opportunity to thrive in a safe and caring environment. FLPS serves a public need by offering housing to a limited number of senior pets.

This safe haven, will take the burden of temporary care and housing of senior animals off of local shelters. Inevitably, local shelters resort to euthanizing these abandoned, senior animals at an alarming rate. According to a 2012 statistics report, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) euthanizes one animal every eight minutes it is open to the public. Euthanasia for senior residents is the primary option for most local shelters because they tend to focus their efforts on a high adoption model that includes younger “more adoptable” animals. FLPS will work with local shelters and rescues to identify the senior animals in need and provide a streamlined process for interested men, women and families who wish to adopt.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is involved with events hosted by PACC911 (Phoenix Animal Care Coalition) and is currently in talks with a local Pet Food retail store to host a monthly adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) asks for an adoption donation beginning at $150 [depending on age and breed] for each of our fabulous senior dogs and cats. We require that an adoption application be completed as well as a home check.
