Gabby is a darling Dogo girl although we were told that she is pure bred, she looks like there could be some english bulldog in there as she is much smaller then the average dogo and she is very bulldoggy. She is a stunning girl with natural tail and docked ears. Her story is tragic and we adore this girl and know she could be so much more then she has been. She is a big girl and has a heart of gold. She is a typical dogo who will do anything for her family and loves them with her whole being. She is an amazing girl and we adore her. She is not huge for her breed, she is a bit on the petite side, but she is a gem all the same. She is a stunning girl, and really thrives to please. 

Gabby has a tragic story. She was turned into a high kill shelter by her owner. Most big dogs don’t make it out alive, but this shelter tries really hard to save them as best as they can. They were able to find an adopter for her. Sadly the adopter was not taking her for the long term and her room mate didn’t want the dog there. So rather then taking the dog back to the shelter where she would have a chance to find a new home she was going to dump her in a rural area. We were able to reach out to her and offer help. She advertised her on a local free site thinking she would be able to find her a home and it would be better then going into rescue. The reason why rescues work is we put hours of hard work into finding the right home. Not just the first person who wants the dog. She was able to find someone to pay her for Gabby but as soon as she handed her over she was allowed to run loose on a busy street and hit by a car. She then was going to leave her for dead! She called us and informed us if we wanted our dog we were welcome to come pick her up off the street! We rushed as fast as we could and had a good friend in the area come to her aid late at night in a bad area. We are glad we could help her, but wish it could have been done before she had been injured. She is a great girl and deserves so much more then she has had.

Gabby is a sweet girl and does well with other dogs once introduced, she does best with larger dogs as she can be pushy with small or fearful dogs. Some dogs she does great with are small, some are larger. She really picks her friends. She is a dominate girl and as most dogos are she picks her friends. She is great with people and does amazingly. She has healed well from her injuries and is back to normal again. She is great with kids and loving. She loves toys and to have a good time. She is mellow and laid back but would also love to go for walks or take a good hike. She is happy doing anything that you ask of her. She is amazing. She is a gem of a girl and we adore her we just wish that we could have gotten her before the accident. She loves to cuddle, hang out and go for rides. She is a happy silly girl who we adore and know someone will love her like we do. She is hit and miss with dogs and will need a home that can do a slow intro with other dogs and give her time to adjust. 

Gabby is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, spayed and micro chipped. She is a happy healthy girl and only has some small scarring where she is still healing. She came to us really thin and is putting on some much needed weight. She is a great girl and is house broken, crate trained, knows basic commands and loves kids. She is a great girl and we could not ask for a better girl. She picks her friends but normally does well with most large dogs. She is a gem of a girl and we adore her. She is as sweet as can be and we could not ask for more from her.

We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area. 

Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.

About Rising Phoenix Mastiff Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a no kill non profit mastiff rescue. We work with all breeds of mastiffs including rare breeds and power breeds of mastiffs. Such as Presa, Fila, Corso, Tosa, Dogo, Ect. We are founded by a small group of dedicated people who have a passion for large breed dogs. We often take in animals who are not mastiffs if there is a need. We work with both purebred dogs and mix breeds. We also work with dogs who need further training since many dogs that come in are simply in need of medical care and training. We also work on educating the public to these breeds and helping owners train and help with the dogs they have so that not all are put into rescue. Sometimes the best home is the one they are already in. We spend alot of time on education. We were founded because there was a lack of help for many of the misunderstood mastiff breeds. Many were dieing in shelters and refused by rescues becuase they did not understand the breed. We felt the need so we offered to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our adoptions are set up by appointment only. Our dogs are kept in foster homes. Not in a rescue center. This is so we can get to know everyone better. Because of this we can only do adoptions by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

We require all adopters to fill out an adoption application for the pet they are inquiring about. This gives us basic info if the dog they are interested in even fits their lifestyle. If that is passed we do a home check, and background check as best as we can in the area. We also contact their vets for any info on their current or past animals. If things go well from there we do require them to come meet and greet the animal they are adopting. In some cases its easier for us to bring the animal to them, and that can be done as well to see how everyone gets along. If that goes well we have an adoption contract that must be signed. We require different things for every animal depending on their exact needs. Some cant be around kids, cats, other dogs ect. Some can. But everyone is required to have a fenced yard, Own their home or they must have proof from their landlord that states that the animal is allowed there. Our adoption fees are based on the animal. They help cover the vaccine, alter, vet check, training, and care of the animal. Also they sometimes help on further medical care if more is needed.
