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.)

Story
Frisco says: “Give me a few minutes, and I’ll give you my whole heart.” This boy is a huge lover, very affectionate, and wants to be your best friend. Frisco is a sensitive dog and will require a slow intro with every person he meets. It won’t take long before he is your new best friend and asking for butt scritches. This tender boy would do best with a dog owner who is committed to training and advocating for him when he encounters new situations. 2-year-old Frisco is about 55 lbs. and is looking for a home that will appreciate his handler-driven nature. He desires to be with you and is always looking to be a part of what you are doing. This fun pup walks great on the leash with a confident owner and would love to go on hikes or on road-trip adventures. And yes, Frisco is kennel trained and house broken. Frisco is friendly with other animals but does not want to go to dog parks. However, he LOVES to play and would do well with a confident playful dog. Fill out an application if you’d like to meet this lovable pooch. (While our rescue typically does not adopt out beyond Phoenix, in order to best meet Frisco’s adventure needs, we will make an exception and accept applications from outside the Phoenix metro area.) **$150 adoption fee includes: vaccinations, dewormed, neuter, and microchip.

Story
Meet the beautiful and lovely Valor! This sweet girl has never had a forever home, and is looking for one to call her own. Unlike a lot of Malinois, Valor is good with dogs and cats. She does not have high prey drive and currently shares her foster home with a 5 pound yorkie mix and a dog-friendly cat. In addition to knowing some basic obedience, Valor is excellent in the kennel and is fully potty trained. She’s very smart! While we have not tested Valor around kids, we suspect she would do well around respectful children who are experienced with rescue dogs/shepherds. We have not seen any resource guarding from her with food or toys since being in foster. Valor is not super vocal or high energy, and would make a wonderful project pet for someone who loves the breed but is not looking for a sport or guard dog. Valor’s story is an example of what happens when people get a breed of dog for “the look,” without doing any research into the breed’s requirements. Valor’s (backyard) breeder initially sold her to a person who decided they didn’t want to care for a Malinois puppy. The breeder’s dogs were “too aggressive” to take Valor back, so she was given to another person who had no dog experience. Instead of trying to work with Valor or make her feel comfortable, the person used a broom to beat and shove Valor out of the house - Valor craves human attention and didn’t want to leave! The wonderful HARTT team eventually trapped Valor as a stray. We then transferred her into our rescue, where she has been in foster with our trainer since. Despite Valor’s chaotic beginning, she is an incredibly sweet dog who seeks human connection. Her low confidence contributes to her having some anxiety about being outside, but she has already improved a lot with her loving, supportive foster. Valor needs a dedicated, patient owner who is willing to spend time with her every day to build a strong relationship. She will make a loyal, loving companion to her devoted owner.
