Gaia's Story...
For more information on this dog or to request an application, please email

Gaia is just as fun and happy as her pictures show. She is super sweet and a beautiful girl full of love, excitement and joy. Its so neat to see here walking along with her big, fluffy tail wagging like crazy. She could air-condition a house with it! She was adopted from us once, but sadly she is needing to find another home. Her adopter loves her dearly, but their other dog has seizures which upset Gaia terribly, so this was not a good situation for either dog. She desperately wants to be loved and will make a great companion for someone who is looking for a dog not only to keep them company but to keep them smiling! For more information or to submit an application, please email Rescue a forever friend!

About our adoption process: For more information or to request an adoption application (required), please email the dog's foster listed above (no phone calls, please). 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gaia, a Phoenix Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog 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 Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
