Dorothy is a sweetheart! She is about 55 lbs and born in February 2012. She was rescued from the Indian Reservation, and like many dogs from out there, it is a little difficult to place an exact breed on her. She definitely has some Labrador retriever in her, her long legs and ears remind me of a Great Dane, and her curly tail is more like a husky. Dorothy has all of the energy of a young Lab/Husky. She loves to run and play! She enjoys walks and would be a great jogging buddy. She definitely needs an active home. Dorothy is a smart girl who is house-trained and crate-trained. Dorothy has been through two weeks of training at a professional facility. Her training includes four private training follow-up sessions for her new family to teach the humans the commands that she has learned. She gets along great with the other dogs that she knows and really enjoys romping and playing. She also really likes children. She will do best in a home with at least one other doggy friend and a yard. Dorothy loves to give kisses and cuddle up next to you! If you want a lovable, smart, energetic dog, then Dorothy is the pup for you! Dorothy's adoption fee is $150 and that includes spay, microchip, DAPP and rabies vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Dorothy, please contact Delon.Washo@asu.edu or 602-295-4518.
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue would like to remind everyone that puppies are a big commitment and require a lot of attention. Puppies often exhibit undesirable behaviors such as chewing and digging. Of course they also are a lot of fun and are very lovable too. When choosing a puppy please consider how much time you will be able to spend training and socializing your new puppy.
Rescue Group Info...
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!
Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!
In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program. So far in 2011, 148 pets have been spayed/neutered on the Reservation!
Pets are in foster homes, so meetings are set by appointment only.
All interested parties need to request and fill out an adoption application. Application fees vary depending on age, temperament and health of the dog. Typically puppies are $200-275 and adults are $100-175.
