She is still young so she would love an active home that can challenge her mind and her body. She is an amazing girl. She is a smart girl and would love a home that can build her brain as well as do things with her. 

Daisy came to us when her family could no longer take care of her. She was sold to the family with her brother. Siblings are so very hard to raise together and this family did not have a lot of experience with the breed much less siblings. She had been allowed to act out and had no training. She was simply to smart for her own good. The family was out of options and considering putting her down as she was the one who they felt was the problem. However most smart dogs can be seen as a problem if they have no outlet for their smarts. She is an amazing girl who learns fast and loves to have a job.

Daisy is a great girl. She is super smart and loves to please. She is a little aloof at first, since she was not socialized as a pup. So she needs a family that will work with her and give her a little time to adapt. She has done amazing with dogs and cats and loves to play. She is a herding dog, so she will try and herd small kids, so a home that has experience with this, or has no small kids to herd around the yard. Once she knows you are hers, she is devoted for life. She is an amazing girl who we know will make a great forever friend for the right home and family. She is an amazing girl. She just loves to be part of the party and would do amazing in a home that kept her mind and her body busy. So if you are looking for a partner in life this is your girl! She loves to play with other dogs and has done great with almost all dogs. She just needs a friend!

Daisy is sweet as can be. She is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, altered and ready for a new home. She is house broken, crate trained, knows some basic commands and does ok on leash. She is a fast learner so anything you teach her she is happy to learn. She loves to be with her people and loves to just be near them. She also loves to go for walks, rides, and have a good time. She does good with other dogs, cats and even people once introduced. She is a smart girl with a zest for life and wants to please. Lets find her an amazing home where she can be the great dog we know she will be. She would do great in any home that will keep her body and her mind busy!


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.
