Phoenix is pretty new to ABR from the San Antonio area. He’s a big brindle boy, about 70 pounds, with white socks, natural ears and docked tail. He’s a medium energy guy so far. Phoenix is fully vetted, healthy and heartworm positive. ABR always helps with treatment and it need not be difficult.

Phoenix went into a foster home with several large and small dogs and a parrot. He is a calm, easy going guy and has befriended each of them. Although he does not live with cats or kids, he’s so even keeled he may do ok with them. He is house trained and crate trained, and his foster mom says he’s needs some refreshers on leash walking.

It usually takes new fosters a couple weeks to fully unwind, get settled in their new environment, and to figure out they are safe and part of a family again before their full personality shows through. We will let you know how this big, lovable guy develops as he goes along.
