Skip's Story...
Come meet me and all my canine friends on Saturday from 10am-3pm at the Petsmart in Chandler, 855 N 54th St near Ray Rd and I-10. See you there!

Little Skip is happy as a clam and cute as a button. He was found wandering the streets in a bad neighborhood. He was all alone and without any identification. The person that found him was not able to find his previous owners and so now he is looking for a “good” and forever home where someone will care where he is. He is about 6 months old and he loves to play, play and play. He’s very friendly with people and loves to play with toys and other dogs. He has all of the features of a terrier, but he has the body of a dachshund. He weighs about 18 pounds, so he won’t be a large dog. Skip is learning how to use a doggie door. For training purposes, when he comes into the house, he is confined to one room and does not have run of the entire house. While we would believe that he is mostly housetrained, he might need a little time and patience to adjust to his new surroundings and to get used to a new routine. Keep in mind that he is still a puppy so he will need some supervision and training. Skip is a great little dog. He would make a wonderful addition to any family. For more information or to request an application, please email Rescue a forever friend!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skip, a Phoenix Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Dachshund for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Dachshund 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Dachshund breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
