Matt comes to us from, you got it, another California kill shelter. We found out about Matt on February 1st, but he wasn't available for several days. So, we waited out his hold time and went to meet him.

" He's very sweet and rode in the car loose giving Joe kisses the whole way"

Safe and ready for his trip to Phoenix

Matt is neutered, up-to-date on shots and will be microchipped prior to adoption. We look forward to getting to know him.

UPDATE 2/11: Matt has arrived in Phoenix!

Excuse me, can you tell me if this is Phoenix?

Happy to be on solid ground

Good focus

Loaded up & ready to head for Phoenix

UPDATE 2/12: The first thing that we have discovered about Matt is that he has kennel cough! We're doing our best to isolate him in a multi-dog foster home, but a foster home without any other dogs would be ideal to help Matt get over this. He has no interest in food, but is drinking so we're not too concerned about his ability to get through this without complication. We put him on a round of antibiotics just to be on the safe side. He'll soon be back to his old self again and we're looking forward to finding out just that that "old self" is!

UPDATE 2/21: Matt is finally over his kennel cough and is feeling much better. He is a "soft" but not timid dog. He's crate trained, but we're not sure about his leash manners as yet. He's definitely getting used to being spoiled around here ~ if he feels his foster mom isn't moving quickly enough with the food bowl, he starts "talking" (not barking). He's very sweet.

Adoption fee $395.00.
