Would you just LOOK at this face and these EARS?!? How could you not fall in love with this sweet boy??? Meet Sammy. This adorable pupper is a whole bunch of fun and spunk. Sammy loves to play, whether it is with other dogs or with his human friends. He is VERY energetic and loves to wrestle and will bounce all over to show you how happy he is. When he sees you coming, his wag will start going and it will never stop! A very unique quality that Sammy has is that we believe he is deaf. That doesn't slow him down though! The staff is currently teaching him different commands with certain signing and would love to show you what he is learning! Doing commands and signing with Sammy will be a great way to deepen your bond together! Not that you'll need it, Sammy loves everyone!! Even though Sammy seeks a friend in all people and other fur friends, sometimes he can be a little much for other dogs because of his excitement. Please bring any current fur residents with you for a meet and greet before taking Sammy home. If you are looking for your new best friend and someone who will love you endlessly, come make Sammy a part of your family. He is waiting for YOU! Thank you for your interest! Please visit We are currently conducting Adoptions by Appointment ONLY. You will find a link to schedule your appointment on our website. Please read each pet's bio for more information. Due to the large number of requests, we are unable to respond personally to each email at this time. Thank you!

Basenji Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)

Female, 5 mos
Gilbert, AZ
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Meet Milan, a remarkable 5-month-old girl with an abundance of intelligence and playfulness. Originally adopted from Maricopa County, Milan and her siblings were discovered as strays. Though the reason for her rehoming remains unknown, fate led her to Valley Dogs Rescue through a friend's recommendation. This adorable Basenji-terrier mix is an absolute joy to be around. Milan is not just smart but also incredibly fun-loving. She has quickly adapted to her foster home and is proving to be a loyal companion, always staying close to her human. Motivated by treats, Milan has made puppy training a breeze, mastering the use of the doggy door and settling into her kennel for a good night's sleep or by her human's side. While Milan forms strong attachments to her humans, a little patience is needed as she adjusts to her new home. Rest assured, the investment in time and love will be richly rewarded! Milan's social skills extend to both big and small dogs, and she interacts seamlessly with kids. As for cats, her compatibility remains unknown. This sweet pup is already spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines, weighing in at 18 lbs presently, with an estimated full-grown weight of around 35 lbs. With her irresistibly adorable appearance and an abundance of love to give, Milan is eagerly awaiting a forever home. If you're ready to welcome this charming pup into your life, please reach out to her foster mom, Paula, at SPWHEELS1@GMAIL.COM, to schedule a meet and greet. Don't miss the opportunity to make Milan a cherished part of your family!
