PHEONIX-Boy was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved and transported to the rescue in Sebec, Maine PHEONIX-Boy is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, heart-worm & tick disease tested negative, de-wormed, monthly preventatives and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 23 June 2019 and at the time of rescue in December 2019 weighed around 16 pounds. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
PHEONIX-Boy be arrived at the rescue on 25th February and was very shy, not wanting to be touched by anyone. He was put in a communal area with other dogs his age and size and he started to come out of his shell. He is great with other dogs and will play and chase dogs of all sizes and ages, but he is still very wary of humans. He has come a long way in that he will come up for treats, but he is still wary and will hold back a little. He was adopted by a family who said for the first few days he wouldn't come out of his crate and they as a family decided to bring him back, it was sad as he had started to gain confidence the few days up to their appointment to bring him back. The family had several children and he was ok with them and it was one of the young boys whom he had started to trust first. He does walk on a leash and has never been aggressive.
Pheonix needs a family that has the patience to let him learn to trust, it would be best if the family had another dog as that would help him with his confidence. I am confident that with a patient, loving family he will gain confidence and trust and grow into a happy, loving family boy who enjoys family adventures.
