RESCUING PHOENIX

This young boy was caught in a house fire and resuscitated at the scene. Unfortunately, the other dog did not survive. A week later, when the insurance adjuster came to inspect the home, he found Phoenix in rough shape, in a crate full of feces. He called Animal Control and AC called us. Phoenix is completely blind, has some hearing impairment, and cannot really feel his face. He is having trouble standing and walking and cannot eat or drink without difficulty. Lucky for Phoenix, a wonderful foster home stepped up and he officially joined the FTTF family.

ABOUT PHOENIX

Phoenix is the epitome of resilience and is a fine example of what love and groceries can do. Within the first 6 weeks he made a complete transformation from an emaciated, clumsy deer to a typical, happy pup. He is now almost completely steady on his feet, even on hardwood floors! He eats and drinks normally and even knows basic commands like sit. He will sit on his own when its time for dinner or when he hears the treat jar. This is HUGE for a little pup whose back leg muscles were initially so weak that he didnt have the strength to maintain a sit, he would just fall over! The BEST news is that although all his vision has not returned, a good majority of it has!! If someone didnt point out his visual impairment, you would never know it upon meeting him. He looks you directly in the eye and is able to navigate new surroundings almost as well as any full-sighted dog. He is not currently on any medications other than monthly heartworm preventative and as far as we know, we do not expect that he will have any medical concerns or expenses related to his surviving the fire. Phoenix is also house and crate trained.

Phoenix is loving and sweet, not to mention adorable!!! Who can resist those freckles? He likes to lean up against you for comfort. He does snuggle but usually just wants to be near you. He loves to sleep on your feet while you are sitting on the couch or in a chair. He does great with other dogs one on one but can get overwhelmed by too many dogs at once because of his poor eyesight. He would love to have a fur brother or sister to help show him the ropes in his forever home. He has not yet been cat tested. He does great with kids, but like most puppies is still learning to be gentle and not nibble. Everyone that meets this boy instantly falls in love. Phoenix will be an amazing addition to any family! He survived a terrible tragedy and is searching for a forever home to complete his journey.

Our adoption fee is $250. All dogs are current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, on heartworm prevention, and are fed top of the line grain-free food.www.savingpitbulls.org
