Bubba is a 5 year old, 75 lb., black male. He is gentle and a@ectionate. Bubba is a happy boy with a tail that wags constantly and loves to be around his people. He's housebroken and not destructive when left on his own. Bubba is well trained in basic commands. This gorgeous boy came to DLRR from the Humane Society of Casa Grande and was heartworm positive. DLRR treated the disease and he is once again healthy and on a monthly heartworm preventative. He was adopted out to a wonderful family who was committed to him, however his one bad habit caused him to be returned. Bubba is a hasty decision maker and a huge opportunist. He loves to chase things. Given the chance he will act on instinct and has bolted out the door in a very rural area to chase lizards, rabbits, anything. Naturally this is very dangerous for him and possibly how he ended up at the Humane Society in the Crst place. His former owner loved him a great deal, however needed to return him for his own safety. He does not try to escape a secured back yard and knows how to use a doggie door. Bubba's new home must be secure from him being allowed to escape and run free. His adopter must have Crm handling skills and know when to reprimand him with praise afterwards for following direction. This will take time and patience and a well controlled environment. Because of his instinct to chase he will only go to a household with no cats. He is playful with other dogs, big and small. Overall Bubba is a great boy who is active and a great companion. If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter.

Yoo hoo! It’s Charlie here. Did you forget about me? I’ve been around for a really long time and I’m beginning to get a complex that no one has wanted me yet. I’m a really good guy and I’ve been waiting so, so long for a forever home. I wish you would give me a chance to let me love you. I realize I might not be the best looking or youngest dog ever, but what I don’t have in age or looks, I make up for with good behavior and love. I know a little about life because I’ve been around for a while, so I don’t have to annoy you with a ton of activity and bad habits. I’m easy to walk on a leash and taking walks is one of my favorite things to do. Other favorites are napping by your feet, watching TV with you, sunning myself outside, and soaking up your love and affection. I get along fine with other dogs but I don’t absolutely have to have another one in my house to be happy. If your cat wouldn’t be happy being chased, then we probably wouldn’t be good housemates. I’m very smart and will learn your schedule quickly. When you are away, I miss you, but I won’t chew anything or get into anything I shouldn’t, like some younger dogs might. I think I’m a pretty good catch and I will make an awesome companion for anyone who wants a loyal, loveable, sweet dog friend. I hope you will consider giving me a nice home in which to live out my golden years. Thank you. See you soon. If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org.

My name is Odie and I am a ten year old lab mix. My house caught fire around Christmas time last year. Thank goodness my family were all able to escape safely, however in the chaos of it all I hid and they could not locate me. My family moved away and I was left to fend for myself. After a few weeks rescuers located me in the rubble behind the shed. I was very thin, my nose was injured, and my skin was in bad shape. A wonderful rescue took me in and got me treated. I had a hole in my nose that required surgery to remove some of the debris that had gotten in it. I had a dental, and they removed a lot of my bad teeth. They treated my skin condition, and they fed me and got my weight back up. My foster mom loved me but knew I was having a hard time getting adopted up here with the limited reach the rescue had so they thought that by sending me to DLRR I had a better chance at my happily ever after. I’m not sure why no one wanted me? I’m such a good boy. I don’t require a lot. I would enjoy a nice quiet home with a soft bed, and lots of snuggle time. I have really enjoyed my schedule where I get my supplements, eat my breakfast, and I look forward to my brushing in the evening. I have arthritis and hobble along but I do enjoy going for walks and I'm on meds to help me feel better. While I was in Flagstaff I would walk the forest for 1-2 miles a day. I tolerate my foster mom’s other dogs in the house but I like to referee when they start playing rough. I just bark at them and tell them to knock it off. My foster mom thinks I would be happiest in a nice quiet home. She says after a week she already loves me and is going to be picky about where I get to retire. Do you have a soft spot in your heart and a soft spot in your home for me? If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org.

Wanda is a sweet yellow lab who was saved by a PACC animal protection officer after she was found in need of medical attention. DLRR took her in and medically diagnosed her with spinal spondylosis and arthritic hind legs. Because of this she will have to stay on some sort of pain/anti-inflamation medication. Our our vet prescribed Hill's Metabolic + Mobility feed. Wanda is a special needs dog. At approximately 9 years old, she wants to go when we go for walks, but her hind legs start ailing her around half a block and she slows down quickly. To help her out, I strap a collar harness around her body just in front of her hind legs to hold her back end up when her legs start to tire. By the time we get home she's had enough, but seems to love getting out. I do have to monitor her when I let her out to eliminate because she will fall back on her right haunches when she squats to relieve herself. She's a low activity dog who gets along great with my chocolate lab, and being housebroken, has never damaged anything in the house. She loves attention and follows me wherever I go. If you're looking for a lovable, low activity dog who needs your special attention and a soft place to thrive, Wanda will warm your heart.
