My story


Armani “a.k.a.” Ari, is a Cairn Terrier mix who is 20 pounds of solid cuteness and muscle!!  He’s a young lad, maybe as old as 2, but likely younger.  He is a 100% typical terrier boy who loves to play and do zoomies, but also loves to cuddle. He loves to play ball and shake or tug plush toys.

He’s curious and loves to engage in everything around the house and will need a very active, energetic family who can keep him busy! He loves to go for walks and basically would play 24/7 if he could. He would do fine as an only dog, but will require a lot of daily exercise and activity.  He will entertain himself with toys, but prefers a playmate and would be better with a young, docile dog his own size. 

He walks well on a leash and in a group with the current foster’s ‘pack’, but will get a little boastful when passing other dogs.  He must always be on leash while outside; his terrier/warrior soul gets the best of him and he’s off and running for a new adventure.  For this reason, he will require a home with a secure, fenced yard and will need to be carefully watched around any open doors or open car windows. 

Ari’s foster mom has been teaching him basic doggie manners and has realized that he is an incredibly smart boy who learns very quickly, but has true terrier stubbornness! His new owner will need to be patient and dedicated to being a firm pack leader that will discipline, guide and train him to be the wonderful companion he wants to be.

Any children in the family would need to be at least 14 years old and very experienced with dogs.  

Armani is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. His adoption fee is $380.00. Please visit our website at: and click on the “Adopt” or “Foster” button at the top of the page to complete an application.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our process starts with an adoption application, followed by interview / meet & greet with adopter and their existing pets, agree to a home check for the safety of the adopted pet and when approved, will complete an Adoption Agreement along with adoption fee. Fees vary based on adoptable pet's age, breed, and situation. Fees range from $120-$550. Cash or check is preferred payment.

Go meet their pets

We have adoption events every other Saturday from 10:00-2:00 PM at PetSmart in Scottsdale (10030 N. 90th Street). Due to the holidays, the every other week schedule might be off beginning in January, so please contact Petsmart at 480-391-1647 to find out whether there is an event prior to making your way there.

More about this rescue

Pathways Home Animal Rescue is an all volunteer / foster based organization dedicated to finding the best homes for abandoned, surrendered, and county shelter animals. We stay small so we can devote our energies and resources to all the animals in our care. When we take in a found or stray animal every effort is made to reunite them with their owners. All animals in our care receive proper veterinary care, are spayed or neutered, all appropriate vaccinations, preventative care, and microchip are administered before they are adopted.
