Charley is a sweet, energetic goofball! He was born in August 2011 (last pic is a baby picture) and is about 45-50 lbs. His family's situation changed, and he is all by himself for too much of the time now. His owner says he is the best boy ever, and deserves more attention. Charley is the typical pit bull - he can't get close enough to his people. He cuddles up in the bed at night and he loves pulling someone on a skateboard. He is a young, strong boy with plenty of energy. Charley would be a great jogging/hiking buddy. He likes to run around, so a yard is a must for this guy. Charley is house-broken and he is good with children. He is good with certain dogs and has not been around cats. Given his breed, we recommend a home without cats. Charley is adorable and will be the best friend anyone could ever hope to have! Charley's adoption fee is $125 and that includes neuter, microchip, DAPP vaccination. If you are interested in meeting Charley, please contact Delon.Washo@asu.edu or 602-295-4518.
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.
