I've got a foster dog named Ajax that's ready to be adopted, so let me tell you about him. Ajax is 3lbs of Greek warrior spirit, hence his name. Believe it or not, he was a long-time stray! He is believed to be 6-8 years old. Once you see his independent spirit and his knack for getting in (and out!) of crazy small spaces, you will realize why he was on the lam so long. When he was finally brought into a shelter he was sunburned, his eyes were damaged from dust and dryness, he had a hernia near his ribs, a broken tail, and was covered in fleas. And boy did he bark! Fast-forward through a few months of TLC and some vet visits, and Ajax has flourished in his foster home. He's now in much better shape! He's all cleaned up, healed up, has a lovely new fur coat and a little more weight on his bones. He now plays and snuggles and sleeps in my bed. So clearly he is all ready to have his own home! Some things you must know about Ajax, beyond his adorableness and spunk, are that his vision is not great, he is not fond of new humans or other pets, and he bites. Not a bite once in warning, I mean this mighty little warrior really bites and he takes it seriously. Ajax is fiercely territorial of his home and his family. He will growl, bark, bite, attack, and never give up attacking if anyone that's not *his* humans is on his turf. Once he feels that his space has been invaded, he will also mark all his belongings (and yours) to be sure everyone got the message. Plus he can warp his way through gaps as small as 2 inches! So he will need a very secure home to prevent him from going on the run once again. Now you might say "Why are you saying such dreadful things about this cute little guy?!?!?" Well, firstly because it's true and you should know about the companion you're considering, but more than that it's because I want to be sure that whoever would adopt Ajax will love every bit of him as passionately as he will love them! Someone who will protect Ajax (as much from himself as anything else!) and love his giant personality forever just as he is. This wonderful little warrior loves me and my family fiercely! In our home he is affectionate and adoring and we adore him right back! He is best friends with all of us unconditionally. He snuggles and gives kisses and is a wonderful little dog! But we do have to feed him separately, and contain him when we have visitors, and that makes him sad and he cries. We want for him to have a home where he will happily have his space and humans to himself. He's ok if he has to sleep in the bedroom while there's company now and then, but he will be happiest in a home where most of the time all the humans and territory are safely his and his alone. So, if you are looking for a small but mighty companion who can love you passionately and guard your home with every fiber of his being, and you will passionately love Ajax in all of his ferocious might, let us know. He's ready for the battles of life to be over. Mighty little Ajax is ready to go home. show less

Chapo here! I hoping you can help me find a family or even a single human friend. I am 3 years old and full of life and love. My start to life was a little rough. I was taken to PACC after I was hit by a car at 9 months old. My left arm was shattered and so my leg had to come off. I went to live with a loving family and their dogs. I loved all my dog friends for a while, but I soon learned that life was better when I am myself with my parents and they weren't around. I don't like to share my toys, space or people with other dogs, so I need to be in a home with no other dogs. I don't know what these things called cats are that everyone asks me about. My mom moved away for work for a few months and took me with her. I loved being all by myself with her. We would go to the park every day and cuddle every night. She said I am a bed hog. My absolute favorite activity is going on car rides. I would love to find a home where I don't have to share my parents, play with toys, chase water, play with my flirt pole, and go on walks. Despite only having 3 legs, I still have loads of energy and it doesn't slow me down one bit! I don't have accidents in the house and am not crated when I am left alone because I usually sleep on the couch or bed all day. I love my dog door and use it all the time, but I also can hold it if I don't have a dog door. Would you be willing to let me call you and your bed mine? Chapo's current family is willing to continue to pay for pet insurance for him and any veterinary bills that may come up. show less

Hi, I’m Hazel. I am curious, playful and love to snooze in the sun to stay warm. I like to sit on the couch and I like my back massaged. I am fairly quiet for a little dog but like most little dogs and most people in Arizona, I don’t like cold or wet weather. So, you will need to walk outside with me to keep me company. My foster mom just scoops me up to carry me outside with my big sister, Sushi, following quickly along. We are never too far away from each other. Hi, I’m Sushi. I am cautious and extremely smart. I learn our schedule and routine quickly. I like to run and play with my sister, Hazel. I am also fairly quiet for a little dog. We have one dog bed and snuggle up together, keeping each other warm. I take good care of my little sister and she gives me her leftovers. I really like to steal dog bones from the big dogs and hide them in our crate. We are inside dogs and get along with other dogs big and small as long as they are also well behaved. We are living with a gentle Great Dane and 3 big labs in our foster home. We like older gentle and kind children but are cautious about them picking us up. We go wherever the dog bed goes and that’s our spot. Our foster mom says we would do best in a house with kind people who like to snuggle and have a consistent schedule. She says we are crate trained but need to come out to do our business every 3-4 hours. She says we will need a refresher on house training in a new home and consistency. We are working on that now and have not had any accidents in the house so far. Lots and lots of praise works best for us to learn in a new home. When you are away from home, we are most successful in a small pen with our dog bed, washable puppy pads and some toys. We will use the puppy pads only 1-2x/week when we are left alone for the work day. We are 6 years old, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and will be receiving dentals prior to adoption. show less
