Darcy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Darcy's Story...
Top of the morning to you! I'm Darcy, a 4 to 4 1/2 year old, 80 pound, collie mixed with ??? probably either akita or shepherd. I would be a fun dog on which to get a DNA test, to find out for sure. But no matter the mix, I am one gorgeous, eye-catching dog!

I came from the local pound where I was to be killed because I did not seem to like women and would growl when a women even walked by my cage. But some rescue person decided to save me! I actually cheated death again as I was very sick (weighed only 49 pounds) and needed a long time and many vet visits to recuperate. But that was in my past life and I am very healthy now!

I am being fostered by a women and have several women friends, so that part of my life is also in the past and you know how us canines are – we live in the present! But it would be good if you had some dog experience before adopting me. I get along with most other dogs and currently live with some, but would be fine as an only dog.

I am playful and love my stuffed animals. I enjoy walks, riding in cars and just hanging out with you. I am loyal and loving and well worth your time and attention. I am spayed, current on shots, micro chipped and very housebroken. My adoption donation is $200. Please call Tuffie's Animal Rescue at (623) 587-9119 or (925) 209-6480 to meet me or email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darcy, a Phoenix Collie/Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Akita for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Collie/Akita dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Akita breeders who help with Collie/Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
