I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Hi, I’m Phoenix!! I’m such a great dog & have been having a great time in my foster home, but I am way overdue for my own forever home. Do people not pick me because I’m just a plain black dog? I’m really not plain at all. My foster mom says I am SO special! They tell I will be 3 years old in March, and I am so good. I really like to play outside & would love to have another doggie & fenced in yard to play in. You see, I’ve been in my foster home a long time now so that’s what I’m used to having. It will be an adjustment for me to go to a new home but I really want to be adored by someone & I’ll do my best to transition well. Just be patient with me because I’m worth it, promise! When I’m inside, I am very well behaved. I just like to have a nice bone to chew on & lots of love. Originally, the shelter had told my foster mom that I had been put to sleep. Thank goodness some people really investigated & found out I was still there waiting to get out. That’s why they named me Phoenix, which means to rise from the ashes. I was unfortunately born with bilateral hip dysplasia, but the great news is that I have had all of my hip surgeries & now I am good as new. I run so hard & so fast that you would never even know it! The vet even said a dog like me probably has stronger hips now after that than a normal dog would. There are never any guarantees with any dog, but I feel great & look great!! I will be a perfect addition to a special household. I have been very well trained by my foster mom & get along with all dogs. I am very much on the submissive side with other dogs. I am potty trained and up to date on all of my vetting. Once in a blue moon I will have an accident in my crate or during the night, but it’s only when my foster mom has waited too long to take me out. When people see me at adoption events they tend to use the word “regal” to describe me. I don’t know what it means, but it sounds cool! Foster mom crates me when she’s not home & I do great. Sometimes I sleep in the bed at night, but other times I like to go sleep downstairs on the couch. I haven’t been around kids much & would probably chase cats, but I love people & dogs!! Please consider meeting me & making me a part of your home. It’s got to be my turn soon!!
