|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Duke is one of a kind! He is a 2.5 year old Llasa Apso/Basset hound mix who is nearly 40 lbs! He is VERY long and his front feet turn out to the side. He makes you want to laugh just seeing him! Duke is a most unusual dog! He is a Llasa Apso/Basset hound mix, and I suspect there may be a little Wheaten terrier in him as well. He is long with short legs like a Basset and his front feet go out to the side like some Basset hounds. He has hair and requires grooming, like a Wheaten or Llasa, so he doesn’t shed which is a big plus! He is darn cute, and it will make you smile just to see him! I think he is an anomaly of physics because it is hard to imagine how his legs hold up that long body! He can run and jump just fine though! He is about 2.5 years old and is 40 lbs. Duke is very loving and likes attention from people. He does fancy himself as royalty, and wants to be treated as such. Duke would be best as an only dog in a home without small children and cats. He is very bossy with other animals and children. Duke is neutered, house-trained, and he DOES NOT mark in the house – another big plus! He will be a loyal and loving companion! The adoption fee for Duke is $150. If you would like to meet Duke, 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.
