Dog of the Day: Tifa From Arizona Humane Society!
Poor Tifa has had a rough go of it. The three-year-old, female Pointer/Dalmatian mix came to the Arizona Humane Society as part of the New Hope program. She has been adopted and returned to the shelter three times now for being destructive. She is a great girl who gets anxious when left alone and simply needs a patient family who can make her the center of their world.
Tifa walks great on a leash and loves to play. In fact, she’ll need plenty of daily walks around the block or even to the local dog park to keep this active girl happy. She also needs lots of toys, such as treat-filled Kongs and rope toys to occupy her time. She is quite a jumper, known to clear six-foot fences, so microchipping could be a great idea for her. Tifa knows some basic commands, but would benefit from additional training by a patient, loving coach. She may do well with another dog, but she should meet any new dogs and children before going home.
You can adopt Tifa NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion, 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. This Lonely Heart pooch’s adoption fee is $30 and includes her spay surgery, vaccinations, a free follow-up veterinary examination, an I.D. tag, a collar and a leash. And thanks to a compassionate donor who hopes Tifa will find a permanent home, Tifa’s adopter will also receive a Critter Credit Card worth $50, which can be redeemed for pet supplies at either the AHS Pet Emporium.
