My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Phoenix was born in September of 2012 and weighs about 65 pounds. He is a playful, loving boy with those he knows well. When he loves you he wants to be with you as much as possible. He can be protective of his human friends. When he sees one of his human friends coming he is so excited his tail doesn't stop wagging. He loves his baths and will run and jump in the washtub begging for a bath whenever given the opportunity. He walks well on a leash and rides great in the car. He gets along with a lot of dogs (as long as they don't challenge him) and enjoys running and playing with them. Phoenix is a real prince who came as a pauper. He was in terrible condition upon arrival, nearly starved with severe mange and infected skin. But with loving attention (of course, there was medicine in there, too!) he blossomed into the beautiful boy he is today. He suffered so much, please give him the opportunity to be your Prince Charming. He deserves to have a happy ever after ending for his story.
