Meet handsome Griffin! The smile that you see is pretty much a permanent fixture on this goof-ball's face! He's a shepherd mix that is just over a year old and weighs about 50 pounds. This boy loves other dogs and loves all people! He's a busy youngster that is always ready for a good game of tug'o'war or fetch. He even carries his favorite toy with him throughout the house so that he's always ready to play! He knows basic commands like sit and down, but will do best in a home willing to do continued training with him since he definitely has his crazy puppy moments!

When we rescued Griffin, he had a golf-ball size growth on his front, right elbow. He was immediately taken to our vet and it was discovered that he has Valley Fever. He's been on fluconazole since the diagnosis in December 2016 and the growth is now gone, but he will remain on the medication for at least 6 months. Griffin also had 2 seizures in his foster home, but was treated immediately, responded well to the medication, and is seizure-free ever since! He takes his pills like a champ and his 6 month supply of medication will go with him to his forever home!

Griffin is house-broken, crate-trained, dog-door trained, neutered, micro-chipped, and up to date on his vaccines. His adoption fee is $300.00. For the chance to meet Griffin, please complete an application at

About AZ Happy Tails

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. In July of 2009 we joined together with fellow rescuers on a mission to save a pack of about 30 dogs from the Fort McDowell Casino area and by the end of the year we had rescued over 80 dogs from there! AZ Happy Tails is committed to the rescue and placement of stray, abandoned, and e-listed animals as well. We think all pets deserve caring and compassionate homes, and the chance to live healthy, happy lives in safe environments. We strive to educate and raise awareness of the importance of animal respect and appreciation.
