Sweet boy Huntley is looking for a patient, loving family to teach him how wonderful life can be as a
We don’t know much about Huntley’s past, but we’re pretty sure he spent some time out on his own
foraging for food. Huntley is very, very sweet, but also shy. When he first came to rescue, we could
barely get him to leave his kennel. But with love and kindness from our volunteers, he’s shown that not
only does he love attention, this boy loves to play with toys too. He prefers the company of women and
seems to be particularly afraid of men, so his future family will need to be prepared to help him
overcome his fear of men.
Look at that adorable face, and he’s got the cutest head tilt to top it off. We aren’t sure if Huntley is
good with other dogs, so we’d recommend a meet and great in advance. Huntley will require patience
and love to help him learn how to be a beloved family member, so POSITIVE training is a must for this
boy. He’ll need help on his leash skills and commands to help build his confidence.
We don’t know if he’s good with children, but he’s a really sweet boy, so older, well-mannered children
that won’t scare him might be OK. And we think Huntley would do best in a quiet home that won’t
overwhelm him since he’s starting from scratch.

Shelter Driving Directions
Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.
"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.
