Story
PWRESCUE.ORG **PHOENIX METRO AREA ONLY** Meet Ozzie (male) & Oreo (female), an 8-1/2-year-old senior pair of sweet, shy souls.  Ozzie is a Havanese mix and Oreo is a Shih Tzu mix.  In their golden years, Ozzie & Oreo are seeking a peaceful sanctuary, a home with low activity where they can retire. They will do best as the only dogs in the home so they can get all of the attention! Because they prefer a quiet oasis, a home without children would also be the best for them.  Ozzie & Oreo may be seniors, but they still have so much love to give. Adopting them means providing a haven for their twilight years and experiencing the unique joy of their loving companionship. They are up to date on vaccinations, neutered/spayed, and microchipped. Their adoption fee is $350.00 for the pair. If you are interested in these sweethearts, please visit our website at: https://pwrescue.org and click on the "Adopt" button to complete an application.   Pathways Home Animal Rescue June 20, 2024, 9:22 pm

Story
PWRESCUE.ORG *PHOENIX METRO AREA ONLY* MUST HAVES: Another, younger playful dog in the home; safe secure yard. Lexi is a 1 year old, 26 pound "American Blend" girly girl. She came to rescue when her owner could no longer care for her. We aren't sure at all what her breed mix is other than adorable, silly, and sweet. Shih Tzu? Basset? Who knows? A DNA test is in order for her!  She is a low shed, goofy girl that loves everyone and is waiting for a home with a yard, at least one other playful dog, and lots of love! Lexi does have good home manners and is fairly patient. She loves to run around the backyard, tosses toys in the air and also enjoys being inside just relaxing in her bed waiting for the next call to action!  She's always ready and willing to participate in some activity.  She has lived with small children but we recommend older, respectful kids who will help her learn to be a wonderful family companion.  Lexi is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $400.00.   If you are interested in this sweet girl, please visit our website at: https://pwrescue.org and click on the "Adopt" button to complete and application.  Pathways Home Animal Rescue June 20, 2024, 9:22 pm

Story
PWRESCUE.ORG **PHOENIX METRO AREA ONLY** Fritz is a 12 pound, 3 1/2 year old Shih Tzu mix (poodle/terrier?) who came to the rescue when his owners did not claim him.  Fritz LOVES every human and most dogs. He will probably get along with another dog in the home or is okay with just his human as long as you are around more than not -- or just take him with you!  He would be a great sidekick! He's a sweet boy who will velcro himself to you and follow you everywhere!  You can tell he wants to be with humans and be involved with whatever you are doing!  Fritz would love walks around the neighborhood while it's still cool. We're not sure how he is with cats or small children, so would have to be tested.  Fritz would love a nice, secure yard to run and play in or just hang out with you during the nice weather!  Fritz is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  His adoption fee is $380.00.   If you want a new best buddy, please visit our website at:  https://pwrescue.org and click on the Adopt button to complete an application.Pathways Home Animal Rescue June 20, 2024, 9:22 pm

Story
Sir Charles is a 12-14 year old, 17 pound Shih Tzu blend who joined us recently from a county facility. This sweet guy, with the adorable head tilt is a big fan of squeaky toys. He is easy to handle, and has excellent leash manners. He knows basic commands, such as "sit," but he would really rather beg for treats! He is a perfect gentleman, when accepting his treats. This good lookin' kid is living with one of our amazing foster homes, while he waits for his forever home (we suspect he won't be waiting long!), and will be available at the adoption center on Saturdays from 10am-4pm, or you may email Debbie@AzFriends.org for a weekday meeting.No appointments are necessary and you can come and see us any time we are open. Please go to our website (www.azfriends.org) to fill out a consultation form then come and see us! We do require any family interested in meeting our dogs or cats to fill out a consultation form – this form helps us determine if the dog/cat and the home are a good match, since it is so easy to fall in love with a photo, without knowing the personality of the dog. Once you have filled out the online Adoption Consultation Form, just come in and see us (or come and see us and fill out the consultation form upon arrival)!Please note that ALL dogs and cats are available to the first home that meets the dog or cat that we feel is a good match. In order to help make the best match, we do want all family members (dogs and humans) to meet any potential new family member. Our adoption center hours are: Closed Sunday/Monday; Tuesday 10a-2p, Wednesday 3p-7p, Thursday 3p-7p, Friday 10a-2p, Saturday 10a-4p. We are located at 952 W Melody Avenue in Gilbert (zip code 85233).All animals are altered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, licensed (dogs). Cats tested for FELV/FIV. Dogs tested for Heartworm. All animals are available to the first family that is a good match, and if we have more than one animal who is a good match, there will be a lottery for all matches. Note that families must have come in to our adoption center and spoken with an adoption counselor prior to any lottery (when we have lotteries, they usually occur on Saturday mornings).

Story
PWRESCUE.ORG Special needs - dominate personality, need experienced owner.*PHOENIX METRO AREA ONLY* Leo is a 7 year old, 22 pound Lhasa/poodle blend boy. He came to the rescue when his owner was unable to care for him. He will do best with owners who understand the Lhasa “personality” which is a dog that is very strong-willed and it’s been said that “when a Lhasa Apso looks in the mirror, he sees a lion”.  Leo will be a wonderful and loyal companion IF his new owners can establish a relationship of mutual respect – i.e. admiring his independent character while consistently enforcing your rules so that he respects you as well. His new owners will require patience, as it will take a while (maybe weeks) for him to get used to a new environment and once he does, he will be very loyal. Leo wants love and attention but is not usually a cuddler. His "M.O." is fairly vocal and often uses "growling" not as a warning/don't touch me, but rather as an expression of his attitude. He has never bitten his previous owner or current foster, but the growling-type vocalization needs to be understood.   He loves walks, running around in the backyard and he loves to sleep with his human. If his humans are strong leaders and exert matching energy (not overpowering or forceful behavior) he responds well. He will do best in a home with just his humans or possibly another submissive (but not younger) dog.  He will not likely get along with young children and would do best in a home with only adults.   With patience and mutual respect, this lovely boy will reward his owners with unmatched loyalty and love!   Leo is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $280.  Please visit our website at: https://pwrescue.org and click on the "Adopt" button to complete an application.Pathways Home Animal Rescue June 20, 2024, 9:22 pm

Astro is the sweetest boy and loves to cuddle! So beautiful and non shedding. Gorgeous green eyes. 5months old. Arthur and his brothers, sisters, mom and dad were left behind when their former owner moved away…..just left these poor guys. Luckily a neighbor heard puppies crying and went next door to inspect and then called us. Because Astro is mixed with terrier he would not need the normal monthly grooming that a Lhasa would normally need. Adoption fee is $350 and includes neuter, 4 puppy shots, microchip and a go home puppy pack. If you are interested in this little cutie….please text us at 480-718-1312.June 23, 2024, 8:24 pm
