RG tells us they're working to correct the problem. Meanwhile, if you're interested in a dog, PLEASE PLEASE complete the online application and provide at least two phone numbers (and check your typing for accuracy!)
We're placing dogs daily and **only begin that process** with a completed application.
 
**Our puppies are placed in the Phoenix metro area,
for proximity to our rescue (home checks, follow up visits, visit to finalize adoption)
and for access to our veterinarian. Sorry, no exceptions.
**
Adoption begins with a Foster-To-Adopt arrangement that continues until
1) the puppy is old enough to be spayed/neutered and
2) until Puppy Kindergarten and Canine Good Citizen training are completed.
Adoption can then be finalized.
PLEASE NOTE: Training is a priority and MUST commence within the first 21 days
of foster-to-adopt or the dog will be returned to the rescue.

Katie is stunning - a large, gentle, and very playful dog. She enjoys toys and companionship, not a needy dog for fetch or play, but loves her exercise, belly rubs, attention of any kind. This dog is the total package: she's smart, funny, and athletic. She most likely did not receive a lot of attention in her prior circumstances, so is clearly enjoying the interaction, snuggling, and play that she's receiving. She's hilarious and will make her new family laugh every day!
 
Katie's young age indicates that she will do well with adults who are home most of the time. She would enjoy the companionship of aother friendly, playful, well-adjusted dog. We are sure she'd enjoy children, however she is very young can be somewhat impulsive so would almost certainly knock over little ones; older elementary-school-aged might be the minimum. She is gentle and kind (not intentionally rough) and training will play a huge part in helping her to manage her size and energy.
 
If you believe you're a possible match for Katie, please complete an adoption application! Please include information regarding your experience with this breed, and also with raising and training a puppy.
 
Our fees and policies are on our home page at BetterDaysRescue.org. We encourage you to register on our site and "Favorite" the dog(s) that interest you, so that you will be notified when bio or photos are updated.

**IMPORTANT** If you are reading this on a pet search site, PLEASE navigate to our animal list http://www.betterdaysrescue.org/animals/list and rea  d this dog's entire, detailed profile.

  • "Fenced yard" means, a backyard that is adjacent to and connected with your residence. (It does not mean a nearby fenced area/dog park.)
  • "Companion animal" means, needs at least one other friendly dog that lives in the same household.
  • We DO NOT adopt to students as we have found that they often do not know or anticipate where life is taking them next.

Dogs remain posted while we screen potential adopters. As long as dog is designated "Available" we continue to accept applications.

We are staffed by all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all inquiries about adoptable dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling of a home check or other dialogue - cannot occur until we have received your completed adoption applicationNO EXCEPTIONS. Thank you!
