Meet Buddy! This handsome fella is full of fun and energy! He loves to run and play, and fetch is his favorite game! Buddy actually had surgery back in October for a fractured leg; the area has healed, but he does still have some lameness with that leg and probably always will. It doesn't stop him from getting around AT ALL, though! Buddy spent time in foster while he recovered from his surgery, so we know a bit more about him than we sometimes do with the other shelter dogs. For starters, his foster mom says Buddy gets along with other dogs of all sizes. He loves to play and can keep up with the other dogs despite his leg. Buddy LOVES people and is super friendly and outgoing, but he is a young dog and can tend to be a bit "mouthy" at times. Because of this, we recommend older children only for Buddy's new home. And oh yeah- did I mention he has a hint of an underbite? This handsome dude was lookin' like Elvis for his pictures and got me ALLLL shook up! ;-) If your family sounds like a good fit for this amazing dog, come visit him at the MCAC West shelter, 2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx. Bring your dog in for an intro! Buddy is approx 1 yr old. His adoption fee is $25 and includes neuter, rabies certificate, County license and prior vet care/surgery. Hours for the shelter at 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. show less

Callie

She loves me, she loves me not. She loves me... she's a cat sooo she probably loves me NOT. ;-) Meet Callie! Now let's be honest folks, life gets a little mundane sometimes, right? You're doing the same thing every day, your vacation is months away, the hot weather is coming, etc etc etc. Need to spice things up a bit and keep 'em guessing? Callie has got you! No literally- she will grab your hand and swat it lol. Callie likes to be mysterious. Sometimes she likes pets and comes up to you seeking out attention. Other times, she hops up on a sink and swats at you with her claws out when you pet her. <<< true story there, friends. ;-P But- you see where I'm going here?! Your life suddenly isn't so boring now that you have a cat to keep you on your toes! Now, your answer to "What did you do today?" goes from "Nothing." to, "I pet my cat for five whole minutes before she hissed and swatted at me!!" Oh yeah. Living life on the cat-edge. Callie was in fact surrendered to the shelter for being unpredictable. Some chicks are just hard to read; the cute ones are always a little crazy, right? If you don't mind a little crazy in your life, come visit Callie! Callie is in a cat suite with a few other cats, but she doesn't seem to like when they approach her. She may prefer to be the only cat, or if you have a cat that will just leave her be, that might work too. Visit 5 yr old Callie at the MCAC West shelter in Phx (2500 S. 27th Ave.). Callie's adoption fee includes spay surgery and 3 in 1 vaccination. show less

Say hello to CinnaBunny- the cinnamon colored Pittie with the bunny rabbit ears! I actually saw CinnaBunny the day she came in to the shelter and she was pretty scared. I thought surely with those amazing ears, she would get noticed quickly, but no go. 😕 So hopefully her cute pictures WILL help her get noticed! CinnaBunny is a super fun gal with the cutest play prances. She walks nicely on the leash AND knows "sit," "paw" and "down" already. WOW! CinnaBunny even knows these commands with just hand gestures- smartie pants! CinnaBunny enjoys pouncing on squeaky toys, getting pets, being told what a pretty girl she is, and going on walks. :-) CinnaBunny appears to be potty trained- she immediately goes potty when she gets out of her kennel, and her kennel is always very clean. CinnaBunny is a great combo of smart, playful and friendly, yet still totally able to do her own thing when you're busy. CinnaBunny may prefer to be the only pet in your life at this time. She can get a little bossy with other dogs at first. We think she would do best with another very tolerant, easy-going dog around her size, or as the only dog. Unknown on cats. If your dog at home sounds like they might be a fit, bring them in to say hello and we can help everyone safely meet. Visit 3 yr old CinnaBunny at the MCAC West shelter at 2500 S 27th Ave., Phx. Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. CinnaBunny's $25 adoption fee includes spay, rabies certificate and County license. show less

This handsome Foxx has been at the shelter over a month guys- what am I missing here?! Foxx has kind of a sad story with his former adopter- they surrendered him because they felt he was "sick" (there's nothing wrong with him) and said they had kept him in the back yard for the month they had him, "because he liked being out there better". Now who knows, but I do know that during the time I spent with Foxx, he seemed to like being inside just fine. In fact, as soon as we were done with our photo shoot, he plopped right down next to me and just chilled out, waiting to see what we would do next. Foxx was a surprisingly mellow guy during our time together! I say surprising, because IN his kennel, Foxx is a talker lol. He makes the craziest sounds when someone he knows (or wants to know!) walks by. I'm thinking this may be turning potential adopters off, because admittedly, it's not the cutest sound in the world lmao. Foxx is looking for a family that will love him AND his funny quirks! ;-) Foxx is a smart guy and already has basic leash manners, and knows "sit" for a treat. He would love to learn more in his forever home- Shepherds are smart cookies that love to keep their minds active! Foxx is a friendly guy, but not pushy for attention. He enjoys pets, but isn't all up in your face for them. Once he realizes you're a friend, he flops over for belly rub time! And as if all that wasn't amazing enough, you have GOT to come see Foxx's adorable little tongue sticking out when he's relaxed. AND AND (we're like in triple bonus time now, guys!!) Foxx met an infant and a young school aged kid last week during a meet and greet, that he did very good with! Bring the whole family in, dog included, to meet 3 yr old Foxx at the MCAC West shelter in Phx (2500 S. 27th Ave). Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. Foxx's $25 adoption fee includes neuter, rabies certificate and County license. show less

Oh Geronimo! This guy is absolutely hysterical. He has so much personality and playfulness in him! Something about the flash in the photo room gets Geronimo all silly. Typically the flash either makes dogs nervous, or they don’t even notice it- I’ve never had a dog try to PLAY with the flash lol! I think Geronimo would be hysterical with one of those laser pointers! Geronimo also likes to pounce on the squeaky toys, and sidle up to you for pets and love. Despite his playfulness, Geronimo isn’t a hyper dude; he has a great moderate energy level! Geronimo has been through a lot during his two months at the shelter. He had a pretty decent respiratory infection that required two rounds of antibiotics, AND he had surgery on his eyes for entropion. The respiratory issues are all resolved, Geronimo's eyes look great... and he is FEELING great! In addition to toy time and cuddle time, Geronimo loves walks (he walks pretty good overall on the leash with some tugging) and showing off "sit" and "paw" for a trick. Fair warning: Geronimo is so cute, you'll probably give him the treat before he shows off his tricks. ;-) Geronimo did ok with his dog eval. He mostly kept to himself, but was "stiff" when interacting with the other dogs. Keep in mind that this eval was done prior to his eye surgery, so it's possible being uncomfortable and not fully able to see, contributed to some of that "stiffness" with the other dogs. If you have a dog at home, bring them in and we can help make sure everyone gets along. You can visit 4 yr old Geronimo at the MCAC West shelter at 2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx. Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-6 Sat & Sun. Geronimo's $25 adoption fee includes neuter, eye surgery, prior vet care/meds, rabies certificate and County license. show less

Another Puppy Senior alert! :-D Holstein is listed at 7 yrs old, but that's the prime of life for this guy! Holstein LOVES his toys and is happy to get a good game of fetch or tug of rope going with each new person he meets. He has the cutest habit of dropping the toy in front of you, then play bowing/waiting until you throw it (see picture in comment section below). Holstein has a fun energy, but he's not TOO crazy like some of the younger dogs. He's still down with a little cuddle time too! Holstein also knows "sit" for his toy (he seemed to be waaaay more toy than food motivated). Even though Holstein came in as a stray, it's obvious he was someone's dog at some point; who knows what other tricks and training he has under his belt! Would you believe this awesome guy has been at the shelter THREE long months?! Holstein did well overall during his dog eval. He was nervous at first, but warmed up over time and became social and playful with the other dogs. If you have a dog at home already, please bring them in for an intro and we can help make sure everyone gets along prior to adopting. You can visit 7 yr old Holstein at the MCAC East shelter at 2630 W. Rio Salado Pkwy., Mesa. Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Syn. Holstein's $25 adoption fee includes neuter, rabies certificate and County license. show less

SHAZAM! POW! KABLAM! All action words that perfectly sum up JJ. And HOLY EARS, guys! This lady's ears are as excited about life as she is! JJ is a super happy, energetic and outgoing dog. JJ is cray cray IN her kennel but she is much calmer out of her kennel. That said, JJ is an active gal and that couch potato life style is not for her. JJ loves to go on walks, run around the play yard, and pounce on her toys. She is a whirlwind of fun and silly! At first, I was trying to get her to pose without knocking the backdrop off the wall, and flinging hot dogs everywhere. But... then I just gave in and went with it. JJ is that friend who you know is up to mischief, but it's SO.MUCH.FUN. you roll with it anyway lol. JJ had me cracking up by the end of our photo session! Speaking of friends, JJ is all about being your friend. She isn't so energetic that she can't slow things down a bit for a good back scratch and some kisses; she is a very affectionate dog and sure each new person she meets is her BFF! JJ is pretty strong on leash, but hey- we could all use a little arm work-out now and again, right? ;-) JJ maybe knows "sit" for a treat? She did it a few times, but was too busy bouncing around the other times to sit. JJ's eval notes indicate that she was "stiff" with the other dogs, but easy to correct. If you have a dog at home already, bring them in and we can help make sure everyone gets along. You can visit 4 yr old JJ at the MCAC West shelter at 2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx. Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. JJ's $25 adoption fee includes spay, rabies certificate and County license. show less

Meet Maraca! This beauty has had kind of a rough go of it lately. Her former family surrendered her to the shelter because she became too interested in the baby when it started crawling. She was adopted about a month ago and surrendered again because she "needs training". I'm not sure about specifics, but yeah- technically all dogs need training! Just like you teach your kids, you teach your dogs how you want them to act. Maraca has had a lot of changes in her life recently, and I think that makes it hard for her to warm up to people right away. When I first took Maraca out, she mostly did her thing sniffing around and ignoring me. Fair enough- I'll admit I'm not the most interesting person lol. But when I bust the hot dogs out, I'm suddenly a lot more interesting! ;-) Maraca is treat motivated, which makes it a great way to yes, TRAIN HER! Tricks and training are a great way to not only teach your dog, but help you and your new dog bond. After a bit, Maraca started to warm up to me. She came over for some pets, and hopped in the play pool for a bit. This gal definitely has some Lab in her, so I think she would love to learn to swim for the summer-time! Maraca was very nervous during her dog eval, but didn't display any aggressive behaviors towards the other dogs. If you have a dog at home, bring them in for an intro and we can help make sure everyone gets along. Please remember that adoption is a two-way street. Your dog is going to give you SO much love and joy, but you also have a responsibility to them to help them be the best dog they can be. If you're up to the task, come visit 2 yr old Maraca at the MCAC West shelter at 2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx! Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. Maraca's $25 adoption fee includes spay, rabies certificate and County license. show less

Yaaaas Queen! Nefertiti is one fabulous lady! You know when you meet someone new and you're like, "Oh yeah. I'm gonna like this person!" Well that's how you feel when you meet Nefertiti! This big, beautiful gal is so fun and friendly. Nefertiti is an easy-going lady and up for whatever- including some dress up and a photo shoot! You bring the treats, she'll bring the poses! Speaking of treats, Nefertiti has got "doggy patio dinner date" written all over her! This curvy lady is all about living life to it's carb-tastic fullest! And if you want to work off a little of those carbs afterwards, Nefertiti is up for that too! She's suuuuper easy to walk on the leash, and promises not to drag your carb-coma'd self down the street lol. ;-) After dinner and a walk, it's chill time! Nefertiti is happy to just hang out near you with her squeaky toys (she likes to carry them in her mouth), while you watch a movie, or sip (more) wine, or do whatever! Like I said- she's an easygoing gal! Nefertiti did well overall during her dog eval. She mostly just ignored the other dogs. If you have a dog at home who needs some companionship, but doesn't appreciate another dog all up in their grill, bring them in to meet Nefertiti! You can visit 4 year old Queen Nefertiti at the MCAC West shelter at 2500 S. 27th Ave., Phx. Hours are 11-6 Mon-Fri and 11-5 Sat & Sun. Nefertiti's $25 adoption fee includes spay, rabies certificate and County license. show less
