I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
If you're looking for an interactive, high energy dog, I might be your girl! I love to fetch (and sometimes return). I often zoom around with my toys and toss them around all by myself. I do drop by for a pat and a snuggle, so, my person is very important to me. I'm a petite 30 lbs, short coated, and my ears stand up most of the time. I'm cute and smart and bouncy. If you might have a safe, happy home for me, please, call 520-255-5375 or email to tell me about your home. Thanks! Mia (and yes, I'm named after the famous female soccer star, because my favorite toy is a rope soccer ball!) I would be best with kids over 8, because herding breeds do tend to herd kids with a little nip on the elbow, which bigger kids can handle better. I rarely do this, but just in case.
A.R.T.A. -- Animal Rescue, Transport, and Adoption -- is a small, rural rescue that cares for and places kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs into new homes -- usually, in the Tucson and Phoenix areas. Most of our adoptable animals have been relinquished by previous owners who could not care for them due to unforeseen circumstances or life changes. The adoptable animals may be visited by appointment.
Come Meet Our Pets...
A.R.T.A. adopts mostly to homes in Tucson and Phoenix areas. Other locations may be considered.
Our Adoption Process...
Please, email about your ideal cat or dog you'd like to adopt and a little about home you are offering. Adoption fee is usually just the cost that vet charges for spay, neuter, and shots.
Thank You! Your message has been sent to A.R.T.A..

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter!
Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
