Where I came from...

I was surrendered to the shelter because my family did not have as much time as they had hoped to train a puppy. I am a sweet little puppy with a slight diva personality who needs someone to train, help build my confidence and shower me with love.

A little bit about me...
Needs lots of exercise
Watch your step, I'm always under your feet
I shed & need to be brushed
All training needed, I'm a puppy
Super affectionate, loves laps
Queen of toys: Give me MORE!
Likes friendly, semi-playful dogs

My ideal home would include...

A family who has the time & patience to help me adjust to my new home & help me develop a routine so I can succeed.
I may be small but I need someone who can provide me exercise & regular walks to keep me active, healthy & happy so I don't become destructive. I'm still an active puppy!

Someone who can really work with me on meeting new people. I'm very smart but tend to BARK when being approached. I need to learn I have nothing to be afraid of & new people offer love.

I am constantly under your feet, so someone agile & quick on your toes! I don't want to trip you or get myself hurt.

I am a Yorkie mix but did NOT inherit the non-shedding coat. So please expect shedding & be prepared to brush me regularly.

I look forward to your visit and seeing if I am the right match for you.

About Sun Valley Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

Sun Valley Animal Shelter, Inc., is an Arizona nonprofit corporation with 501(c)3 status which operates a No-Kill shelter in Glendale, Arizona, generally serving the western portion of the Phoenix metropolitan area. The organization was founded in 1991 by a group of Sun City area residents as a foster-based program to provide adoption opportunities for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. The current facility was built in 1995 and can house 100+ dogs and 100+ cats. The organization receives no government funding and is supported by income from our thrift store profits, adoption fees, membership dues, donations and bequests. We recently received a grant to assist in the construction of a new medical/surgical center at the facility.

The animals taken into our care are housed in a clean, secure environment and are spayed/neutered, microchipped, given all necessary shots and a physical exam. Dedicated volunteers are invaluable in assisting with the daily care and nurturing of our dogs and cats prior to finding a loving home. We are proud to note that in the last several years we have increased adoptions from approximately 300 animals per year to over 1000 animals per year.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sun Valley Animal Shelter is located at 7150 N. 110th Avenue in the City of Glendale, AZ 85307. Our business hours are Tuesdays thru Sundays from 11:00am till 4:00pm. We do participate in a local Petsmart on the weekends for our dogs to be viewed. We also participate in various events throughout the Greater Phoenix area that those who allow dogs to be shown we bring for viewing. If not, we are always available at an event to showcase those adoptable pets that are available.

Our Adoption Process...

Please be advised we only adopt to AZ residents. We make a commitment to all of our animals. So while we appreciate your interest, we ask that you be a local resident to adopt. We do not always know the full background of each animal and sometimes personalities are not fully shown until a few days in the home. If for whatever reason you cannot keep the animal, we appreciate the animal being returned to our facility. It is costly and time consuming to return an animal from out of state. Please check your local animal shelter to find a forever friend near your area.
We do have adoption fees that are reflective to our adoptable cats and dogs. They will slightly vary depending on the cat or dog. However most of the adoptable pets have the same adoptable fee. We ask that any prospective adopter to come to our location and complete an adoption application. This will be reviewed by a qualified adoption counselor who will sit and visit to interview the adopter on what they are looking for to place the adoptable pet in a forever home. Once approved for adoption, there is paperwork to complete and the adoptable cat or dog will be able to go home that day
