Meet one of Rocket Dog’s newest and cutest additions, Phoenix! He came to us from an overcrowded city shelter. Phoenix was mere minutes away from death to make room for the endless influx of homeless and abandoned dogs. Rocket Dog swooped him up in the nick of time. We think the name Phoenix is very fitting, because he is ready to rise from those ashes and show the world how amazing he is.
Phoenix appears to be a dachshund mix, around 3 years old, and 15-20 lbs. He is still coming out of his shell but seems to be a total lap dog. Maybe over time he will blossom into a mischievous and stubborn boy if he really does have any dachshund in his blood!
Phoenix would benefit from a quiet home with humans who are patient and loving. He would also like to find a foster home in the meantime.
