Story
This an name nameis Leia like princess Leia. She is a sweet girl who I adopted from the Maricopa County shelter. When I got her she was severely underweight, needed surgery and had kennel cough. I feared she would be put down so I adopted her. Now she is a healthy weight and is all recovered from her surgery and illness. She is so sweet, she hardly ever barks. (Doesn't bark when someone knocks, hears a loud noise sees other dogs or people.) They guessed she is around 4 years old. She is now around 45 pounds.She is mostly Catahoula leopard dog and Australian Sheppard. She loves everyone she meets and is good with kids. She does like to jump but is easily deterred with a spray bottle of water. She is good around most dogs but can take a little bit to warm up to them. She requires a lot of walks and frequent exercise. I don't kennel her and she does great, however I work long hours and she needs someone who is home more often to let her. She will come with plenty of supplies.

Story
Keedah is young (maybe 1yrs) Siberian huskyfemale that is not spayed. She was found wandering around downtown Phoenix early February, she was picked up by someone I know. He took her in to see if she was chipped, which she is not. She was then vaccinated and came to us the early March. She is very friendly and loving, playful with our other dog, and overly curious about our cats. This last trait is why we are looking to rehome her. She knows the sit command and starting to learn her name. Keedah would be great with another dog, a backyard to run and play, kids, and someone who loves dog cuddles.

Story
Mia is a beautiful 7 year old pittie mix who is looking for her forever family. Sadly, this loving girl has been abandoned multiple times and then found herself on the euthanasia list before we rescued her. Mia completed a two-week board and train and is now ready to show off what a good girl she is. Did we mention she is super smart and learns quickly? Mia previously lived with a chihuahua and has done well with the cat at her foster’s house. Out and about, she is non-reactive to other dogs. We believe with a slow intro Mia will be able to co-exist with another animal just fine. Due to Mia’s past behaviors of anxiety and resource guarding, we will require she go to a home that is comfortable keeping up with her kennel training. We’ve learned that a structured lifestyle makes Mia feel safe and secure! Do you think you have the perfect home for this sunbathing queen and budding fashionista? Fill out an adoption application to meet Mia today! **$150 adoption fee includes: vaccinations, spay, dewormed, labwork, and microchipped. (At this time, we only do adoptions in the Phoenix valley and surrounding cities – within a 60 mile radius.) IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MEETING MIA, PLEASE FIRST FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION: https://pepperspals.org/adoption-application/
