Gauge was found as a stray, and with no one coming forward to claim him, he is now up for adoption. Gauge is estimated to be about 1-1/2 years old. He is in the prime of his goofy puppy stage. It doesn’t seem like anyone taught him any manners, so our volunteers have been working with him and he’s made some great improvements. He is going to make someone an awesome dog, but he probably won’t be the best “first dog” for someone. He’s a pretty cool guy, and is definitely worth meeting. He would be a great jogging/hiking activity buddy for someone. His adoption fee is $150. He is vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered.

Spending time with family is a major part of the holiday season and oftentimes that includes the four-legged members of our families as well.

Bruce is a very handsome pit blend, about 3 years old. He was recently returned, after being adopted from Friends for Life Animal Rescue for a while, when his humans split up. The boyfriend held onto him as long as he could, but realized it wasn’t fair to Bruce to bounce him around to different places. Bruce is what we call a Pit Bull Ambassador — he is the best of the breed. He came back to us a little overweight so he needs his new family to help him shed a few pounds. He’d be happy to have a fit partner for the new year and go on long walks with you to help everyone stay in shape.

When my wife and I carried our newborn child through the sliding glass doors of the maternity unit, we were not given an instructional manual. No type of handbook accompanied the second or the third child either. Like all parents, we were directed to the exit sign clutching our new wrapped-in-blue bundle, with little more than a slap on the rear end, like a coach sending in his second-string substitutions. We were those kids with plenty of eagerness to play the game, but not a lot of knowledge about the playbook. We simply were not prepared for or coached up on every possible situation that would arise in our family-building career.

MCSO officials said they found several types of dogs at the scene including Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and even small dogs.
"Little dogs, cocker spaniels, poodles, chained up with heavy chains. That makes you wonder what they're being used for. Are they a training tool for the bigger dogs that are here?" questioned MCSO Deputy Joaquin Enriquez

Investigators said he admitted he feeds the dogs pizza scraps if he has them. He also claims he rescues the dogs from the river beds.

The small, white animals flood into Sharon Hampton’s living room in an instant. It’s Thursday morning at the Westie and Friends AZ Rescue dog shelter in Mesa.
Jax is a big beautiful boy, about 3 years old. He’s very playful and sweet. Thus far he’s gotten along with most cats he’s met. It isn’t sure if he’d be happy living with dogs. Jax has been at the shelter for quite some time so when he does get adopted, the family should understand it might take him some time to adjust to a home environment. His last person ended up having to return him due to allergies. Jax would like to be brushed sometimes to keep that wonderful mane of his looking its best. He seems to understand there’s a price to pay for being so handsome so he doesn’t mind it.
