Cali is a stunningly beautiful dog! She has a gorgeous golden-colored coat and ice-blue eyes! She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside! She is just over a year old and a petite 38 lbs. Cali is very sweet and loves other dogs and kids. She is also fine with cats. Cali was picked up as a stray and taken to the county shelter where she was scheduled to be euthanized for "fear". Poor girl was terrified in the shelter! When we brought her home, she was still very afraid, but despite that, she never once growled or showed her teeth. She has a very gentle nature! She is still shy, but has come out of her shell and continues to gain confidence every day. Cali loves walks now and is very good on a leash. She is crate trained and house-trained! Cali is very comfortable around other dogs and needs to go to a home with at least one other dog in the household. Cali's adoption fee is $200 and that includes spay, microchip, DAPP and rabies vaccinations and county licence. If you are interested in meeting Cali, please contact Delon.Washo@asu.edu or 602-295-4518.
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue would like to remind everyone that dogs are a big commitment and require a lot of attention. dogs 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 dog/puppy please consider how much time you will be able to spend training and socializing your new pet.
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.
