Story
Ginger is a sweet, gentle senior lady who found herself back at PACC after several years away. Her person moved and was and unable to take her along, so Ginger really needs to find a new forever home. The shelter is no place for an older dog! In her former home, Ginger did well with other dogs and young kids, and was described as affectionate and playful. She loves toys, car rides and swimming. Ginger was unfortunately kept outdoors in her last home, so one main requirement for her future home is that she be welcomed indoors to be near her family. Ginger spent time in a foster home and we learned the following:- Ginger did great with kids and small dogs- She knows `sit` and `down` and is eager to please- She’s very sweet and just loves to be with her people.- She LOVES to cuddle and is very affectionate- She likes chew toys- She’s well-behaved - She’s a loving companion and will literally be your shadowDuring another foster stay Ginger was described as friendly, cuddly, and very easy to walk. She was well- behaved when left alone, loves chew bones, and was housebroken. She loved to nap the day away and sleep near her person at night. Here’s what one shelter volunteer said about Ginger:“I spent time with Ginger and found her to be a lovely girl. She is super sweet and easy to be with. She is easy to leash up and walk and she really enjoys and appreciates human companionship. We spent time in the yard, and she enjoyed exploring and getting in the pool. She was very good about coming to me when I called her name and she sat gently beside me and couldn`t seem to get enough petting. She likes treats and will sit for them. This tender-hearted girl is a gem and sure deserves a stable forever home.”And, as an added bonus to all of her other wonderful qualities, Ginger also has just about the cutest underbite in all of Tucson!! She’s been appropriate, tolerant, easygoing, and even a bit playful when meeting other dogs in playgroup. No cats please! Ask to meet Ginger today!!

Bessie is a special girl looking for a very special adopter- someone who understands her needs and can keep her safe. She’s an affectionate playful dog who originally came to PACC with a pal in 2020. In her prior home she was housebroken and her owners described her as a very sweet girl who loves hot dogs, playing, and snuggling. Bessie was adopted two more times after her initial return to the shelter but hasn`t found her perfect fit. In her most recent home, she did well with other resident dogs (big and small), was housebroken, and was described as a sweet, playful girl who loves squeaky toys. “Bessie is a LOVE with her person. Playful. Affectionate. Sweet. She rocks the muzzle. It`s hard to reconcile that dog with the dog she is when meeting people on leash, which she struggles with tremendously. She needs a home where she has guidance every step of the way.”- PACC volunteer“Bessie takes time to warm up to new people, new dogs, and new situations, but once you are her friend, she will be your friend for life. Bessie will need an experienced partner to help her adjust, but with a little patience she will gain confidence and become a loving, loyal, and trusted companion.”- PACC volunteerBessie is struggling in the shelter environment and is looking for an experienced, savvy owner. She`ll do best in a quiet home without constant activity and visitors. She`s done well sharing her kennel with another shelter pup, but she’ll need a proper introduction to any resident dogs. If you can help give Bessie the stability she needs and deserves, and can work with her on building confidence and modifying her behavior in new situations, please ask about her today!Email to ask about her!Megan: Megan.Lumpkin@pima.govJamie: Jamie.Macias@pima.gov

Coco is a sweet, snuggly lady looking for a soft and cozy landing place. She has arthritis in her elbows and takes daily medications to manage her pain. She would be so grateful for a loving family to spoil her! Here’s what volunteers have said:“I met Coco for the first time tonight and she was immediately friendly and seemed so happy to get some attention. She was easy to leash up and was not at all reactive to other dogs we passed. We went to a yard where she just wanted to stay right with me and get cuddled and loved on. She takes treats gently and gave me some gentle kisses in return. She is so affectionate and sweet! Coco is an absolute doll.”“Coco is just wonderful. After taking care of business she had a great loose leash walk and was an extreme sniffer- she just loves to sniff! She also enjoyed being petted and sat nicely for treats which she took very gently. She was well behaved, sweet, and mellow and got along well with her kennelmates. Looking forward to spending time with her again.”Coco shares her kennel politely and has been easygoing and sweet when meeting other dogs in playgroup. Ask to meet Coco today!!

Story
RESCUE ONLY DEADLINE 3PM 02/25/24Name: MaverickAnimal ID: A752515 duplicate ID A828846 merged nowAge: 4 yearsWeight: 48.60 lbs. About: Some of you might remember Maverick, he was at PACC in 2022 and left to a rescue on a deadline. Unfortunately, Maverick is back at PACC and will be on a Rescue Only Deadline again for 3pm 02/25/24. The owner did reach out to the rescue before bringing Maverick back to PACC, we also reached out to the rescue to let them know Maverick was here and ask if they were planning on redeeming him, sadly the rescue is full, and they are unable to reclaim. Maverick was surrendered to PACC because he was being destructive, kept escaping and was resource guarding people in the home. Currently, we don’t have a lot of information on these behaviors, we have reached out to the previous owner and are waiting for a call back with more information. We do know that listed on the owner surrender form as a new baby, so some of these behaviors could have started after the new baby but we don’t know for sure at this time. His previous owners said that he is affectionate, loves toys, is playful and knows tricks. In Maverick’s first home, he lived with another dog that was a small dog and did well with kiddos as young as three. Unfortunately, in this home and his most recent home Maverick didn’t have a secure yard, so his ideal home will be one that has a secure yard, and he will be monitored when outdoors. In his most recent home, he did live with a 4-year-old female dog. However, while meeting dogs in a playgroup both back in 2022 and currently, Maverick has some issues and did start an altercation, no dogs were hurt as Maverick was in a muzzle because of his previous notes. He needs to meet any resident dogs before going home to make sure it`s a good fit. This is what his current foster said: `He is a very good looking dog. Not a huge barker, non-destructive, just wants to hang out and be with you. If you`re looking for a cool low maintenance friend and want to save a life, Maverick is your guy. If this boy could live in your lap, he would be the happiest dog on earth! He loves attention and will happily sit on the couch next to you or at your feet all day long if given the opportunity.`
