Meet Phoenix! This baby giant is the sweetest, most gentle, mellow puppy girl you will ever meet in your life. If you’re a big-dog person, then you need to meet her. She will steal your heart with her big eyes and sweet affection. She is being fostered with her sister Blaze.

Phoenix was rescued from an illegal meat farm after the owner abandoned the dogs to escape a wildfire that tore through the area. Sadly, the dogs were left stuck in their cages and many did not survive the fire. Fortunately, some did and Phoenix was one of them! We cannot imagine the horror these dogs had to go through not only being in a raised as meat dogs but also surviving the wildfire. Phoenix survived, and like the bird, she rose from the ashes and is turning into a beautiful and majestic creature. She will have scars her whole life, but they don’t seem to bother her at all. All she wants is love!

Phoenix wants nothing more than to have a special person she can bond with, love, kiss, snuggle, and learn to trust. She is slow to warm up to people, but once she does, she will give you her whole heart. She gives the most wonderful head-snuggles and happy kisses, and she is learning to play with humans!

This world of houses, stairs, cars, and leashes is very new to her. She is learning every single thing, and will need a patient person to help her discover all that life offers. She is afraid of walking on leash right now, so she will need a yard or patio for potty. She is mostly house trained with the doggie door (which she can use if the flap is propped open.) She hasn’t been kid tested, but would probably be fine with children old enough to not be accidentally injured by a giant, clumsy puppy. She has not been cat tested. She is great with other dogs, and plays well with ones half her size or less. She will need to be exposed to a variety of people (especially men) right away, so that she learns that people are safe.

Phoenix is being fostered in El Sobrante. She is patiently waiting for someone with a heart big enough to hold her in it.
