My name is little Speckle and I am a dynamic bundle of energy in a deceptively small package!!! I am a ten week old Chihuahua mix and weigh only three pounds. My tininess doesn’t stop me from running and playing all out with the other dogs! Big and small...I like them all! I am in a foster home and learning what it is like to be part of a family.
I love to snuggle, sit on laps and wear my moose sweater on chilly nights. I like to play with toys and chase a ball. I like to eat and drink and be told how super cute I am…..and I am so super duper cute! Most of all, I do like to snuggle and sit on laps…in case you missed that part! I am black with a white chest…and each of my tiny toes is white – kinda like puppy pedi highlights! AND, I have puppy breath for now! As a young one, I have much to learn and am looking for someone to love me forever and teach me all the big dog things I need to know. I am a very curious little guy and I will follow you everywhere because I want to be where things are happening! Because I am so small, it is best I go to a home with older children or adults.
I have been neutered and had my first round of vaccinations. My adoption fee is $115. You can find a lot of bigger dogs but I am the cutest and most fun dog in the world!!!!
To meet me, please contact my foster mom at email@example.com or 480.502.2123.
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.
