About Me

phoenix-outside-2Phoenix-facePhoenix was adopted May 2016!

Phoenix is a really sweet girl who was sadly taken back to the shelter by her family because one of them developed an allergy to her. She is missing her family but is so happy to be in a foster home and enjoying playtime in a big back yard. She loves to run and play and chase balls. However, she is also happy to rest on a comfy doggy bed. She definitely likes to be comfy and warm! Phoenix is a big lap dog who would love to watch movies with you on a Friday night after enjoying a nice walk around the neighborhood. We’ve discovered that she loves car rides!

Phoenix is doing great adjusting to her foster home, which includes a cat and a dog and two children. She likes to follow us around, or at least know where one of us is located at all times. We are still getting to know Phoenix, so we will post updates to her profile as we learn more about this super cute girl.

Phoenix is a wonderful companion who is looking forward to finding her forever home. Please come and visit her at one of your adoption shows. Her sweet face and affectionate personality will win you over!
