The dog you are interested in is eligible for our Love for Life program (L4L). This program is to find forever foster homes for dogs that may not otherwise find a forever home. Many are more difficult for adoption due to medical or behavioral conditions.

Temperance (Tempe) came to us as a stray that wondered onto someone's property in Tucson and that person reached out to a friend that knew about our rescue. He reached out to us after holding onto her for a couple of days then drove her to our rescue from Tucson. This middle-aged girl was so skinny and weak, but also had a very bloated belly. Within a couple of hours we had her into the vet that informed us her belly was full of rocks, trash, bones, and even Christmas tree ornament hooks! This poor girl was so hungry she was eating anything she could find.
So the path of getting this girl healthy started. With the help of all the volunteers at the rescue, she slowly started to get better. As time went on, we found out she is diabetic, which now means small amounts of insulin twice a day along with a controlled diet. With the diabetes, Tempe started losing her eye sight, which sadly resulted in having to have one of her eyes removed. We believe she can slightly see shadows with the other eye.
With all of that going on with this special girl, it does not stop her from having fun. She loves toys... especially balls. She loves to go on walks and is just all around a happy girl. She loves to be with her person, so we think someone home a lot would be best for her. Because of her limited eyesight, we're not sure how she would do around other dogs, so she would probably be happiest as an only dog.
We are looking for a Love For Life foster home for Tempe. As a foster, all necessary supplies and food would be provided for you by the rescue. Tempe deserves to spend the rest of her days in a home of her own, with people of her own to love. Are you that person?
If you think you could give this precious girl a soft place to land, please fill out the foster application below:
We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application. We are an all-volunteer organization. We are not compensated for our time. Many volunteers juggle family and full -time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. It may take up to 5 days to process an application and complete reference checks.
Thank you for your interest in saving the life of a dog.
