Sam's Story...
Featured dog - $75 adoption rate! For more information on this dog or to request an application, please email

Sam is one fun, neat dog. He is your typical 1 year old puppy - friendly, energetic, playful and loving. He's a happy guy and has yet to meet a person or another dog he doesn't like. If you are looking for a playmate for another dog or a pup you can take hiking, walking or running with you, Sam might be your guy. He's going to do best in a home with a yard and opportunities for plenty of exercise and playtime. He does have a lot of energy but all he needs is adequate playtime - either with another dog or his human friends (or both, of course!) and then he's perfectly happy to settle down to watch a movie while sprawled out in your lap or to chew contentedly on a bone while you work.

He also adores his toys and is a master fetch player. He walks very well on a leash and knows his basic commands. As with any young dog, he will continue to need guidance and training to learn and reinforce good behaviors. He appears to have corgi in him and basenji as well and some of his siblings looked to have heeler too. And there are certainly other breeds in him as well...he's an all-american mutt! Because he can be rather rambunctious when playing, he probably would be too much for small children but would probably be okay with older children and teens in the home. Sam is also crate trained and as he is used to a pool, he is fine in a yard with an unfenced pool. For more information or to request an application, please email Rescue a forever friend!

About our adoption process: For more information or to request an adoption application (required), please contact the dog's foster listed above. There is no commitment by submitting the application - it just helps us determine if the pet you are interested in will be a good match for you. Next is a meet and greet at one of our adoption events - typically held on Saturdays at the Petsmart in Chandler, AZ (Ray Rd & I-10). Not every pet is at every event so please contact us first to find out when and where you can meet the pet you are interested in. If there are other dogs in your household, we suggest bringing them to ensure everyone gets along. The standard adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $140 (cash or check) which includes spay/neuter, current vaccinations, microchip and collar/tags. Sam is a featured dog with just a $75 adoption rate!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a Phoenix Basenji/Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Corgi for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Basenji/Corgi dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basenji/Corgi breeders who help with Basenji/Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
