Story
Wonderful hiking and walking partner!All dogs are located in foster homes in southeast Arizona. The foster home is between Benson and Willcox just south of Interstate 10. Please contact Carrie to arrange meet and greets. Carrie can be reached at fedwellfarm@yahoo.com, or 602-316-8919 No texts please. Spearmint is a LOVE!!! Spearmint was found as a stray in Phoenix. 'Minty' came to Fedwell Farm about a year ago. His wonderful personality has really come out and he is a foster favorite. Minty is very smart, you can tell him NO and he will not do that behavior again! For instance, the foster mom caught him pulling the stuffing out of a dog bed, she said NO and he has not ever done that behavior again! The beds are safe! Minty has the cutest grin. He should have had braces; we just love it when he smiles! His crooked teeth do NOT cause any eating problems. He loves people. He gets along with everyone! He even can be with dog aggressive dogs; he just is the greatest boy! Spearmint is 11 years old, probably a bit younger, but he is a senior boy. Minty does not seem to have any age-related disorders. He goes to the barn and helps his foster mom with chores. He can go for long walks, hikes etc., he is in great shape! He weight is approximately 80 pounds. Spearmint had been a volunteer favorite and walks very well on a leash. Spearmint can go for walks; hikes and his age does not limit him at all. We really think he is younger than 11 Please come meet Spearmint and give him the life he truly deserves. 602-316-8919 (no texts please)April 13, 2024, 3:23 pm

SERVICE DOGS OR RANCH DOGS!!!!All dogs are located in southeast Arizona between Benson and Willcox Arizona. Please contact Carrie at fedwellfarm@yahoo.com or 602-316-8919 (no texts please) UPDATED PROFILE: Opal and Dusty have learned so much and come so far! A wonderful donor has offered up to $500 to help pay for a dog trainer to work with their adopter. WE WOULD ALLOW THESE DOGS TO A RANCH OR FARM HOME in order to keep them together. We normally do not allow outdoor only, but these two would really love to be together on a farm or ranch. Opal and Dusty have learned so much and come so far! These two wonderful dogs would also excel as service dogs. They are extremely loyal and want to desperately bond with their humans. They are extremely loyal and want to desperately bond with their humans. Both have been snake avoidance trained and actually did so well that the trainer was impressed, and they seem to have known about snakes instinctively. Opal and Dusty were scared kids picked up by animal control in New Mexico. When they arrived, we could not even catch them, they were so afraid. T They have come so far! They love their humans; they look forward to human contact and are absolutely the BEST ON THE LEASH!!!!! They go for long walks with the volunteer, and they are perfect. Once, the volunteer fell on the walk and the leashes were let go., Dusty and Opal stayed right with her and made sure the volunteer was okay and then waited for their leashes to be picked up and carry on with their walk. (The volunteer was not injured thankfully) Both of them are now 2 years old. They have filled out beautifully and are in magnificent condition. Both weigh between 70 and 80 pounds. We would love to place these two in a home together, if possible, but we would separate if necessary. Please come meet these wonderful, beautiful kids and give them the life they really deserve. They have been in rescue way to long and they will repay their new family with so much love, giggles and smiles! 602-316-8919 (no texts please)April 13, 2024, 3:23 pm

WOW! Chesapeake Bay Retriever Boy!All dogs are located in south east Arizona between Benson and Willcox just south of Interstate 10!    Adoption meet and greets can be made through Carrie by email at fedwellfarm@yahoo.com, or by phone calls at 602-3161-8919 (no texts please)   I have never had a Chesapeake Retriever, in rescue or as a personal dog. This boy is amazing!   Nick aka Rusty is 8 years old and weighs 78 pounds. He is in great shape!   This sweet boy should be loving life with his person, but no, he was picked up as a stray by animal control!   Nick is very loyal, he is a bit protective when new people come between him and his human. So, he would most likely not be a great candidate for a family with children, just because children have friends.   Nick is great off leash! He will stick by his person through thick and thin and follow you until the end of the world.   Please come meet this fabulous boy! He needs to be in a home, not a rescue or shelter, he needs a human for him to love and bond with!   Although he is large, he would be great for an apartment or with somebody that is busy with work or school. He is not destructive and would be happy to watch Animal Planet while his person is not home!   602-316-8919 (no texts please)  April 13, 2024, 3:23 pm

Sweet Off Leash GirlAll dogs are located in foster homes in south east Arizona, between Benson and Willcox. Please contact Carrie to arrange meet and greets. Carrie can be reached at fedwellfarm@yahoo.com, or 602-316-8919 No texts please! Precious is precious! I hate to say she is a Shepherd Mix, Malinois mix, because that is a far stretch. What ever breed she is, she is Precious. She is great off leash, she helps her foster mom with chores and she is always by her side. Precious is small, probably 45 pounds. Another reason I do not think she is a shepherd. Precious is so cute, she gets cold easily, so she has her own heated bed and loves when we put a sweater on her or a blanket. She of course is in the house, but for some reason she gets cold while the other dogs and I am perfectly comfortable. Yo can see how appreciative she is when you wrap her up. She gets along with other dogs, although she can be a little rough in her play. She can also be a little nippy with strangers. Precious is approximately 4 years old. Please come meet this fabulous girl! 602-316-8919April 13, 2024, 3:23 pm

Sweet Hound mix Boy!All dogs are located in foster homes in Southeast Arizona between Benson and Willcox just south of Interstate 10. Please contact Carrie to arrange a meet and greet. fedwellfarm@yahoo.com 602-316-8919 (no texts please) Please meet Andy! What a lovely, sweet boy that was picked up as a stray by the county shelter. Andy is approximately 7 years old and weighs about 63 pounds Andy is wonderful. He is very beautiful he is kind. He gets along with other dogs. Andy would love a home that would take him running, hiking or even walking around the block. He is not a high energy boy and may do well in an apartment or town house without much room to roam. Andy is happy to watch Animal Planet while his family is at work or school. Andy's favorite activity is snuggling on the sofa cuddling with his people. Andy has been rewarded with 'privileges' in his foster mom's home. He gets to go to the front, which is not fenced, and he stays right with her. He is also well mannered around the horses and donkey. Please come meet Andy and give the home he has always dreamed of. 602-316-8919 (no texts please)April 13, 2024, 3:23 pm
