FEMALE IN A NUTSHELL: 18 month old long-coated female. Can be selective with other dogs. Needs a proper introduction. Probably would do best as an only dog.
We are currently working on a transport for Sapphire from northern California to Phoenix. Please check back for her full bio and additional pics.


Sapphire gets ready to load up for their trip from Solano in northern California to Phoenix

UPDATE 6/16: We received word from volunteer transporter Nia this morning that Sapphire and Solo had been picked up from Officer Bokum about 3 hours from the shelter and the pair are on their way to Phoenix! According to Nia, "Sapphire is a love -- she's nervous about loading back up but once in the car she's fine."

Are we there yet?

UPDATE 7/21: We checked Sapphire in to Doggie District this afternoon to have some fun and meet some new friends!

She stopped to introduce herself to the stuffed dog in the lobby
Tara made her feel right at home

UPDATE 7/27: Doggie District turned out to be too stimulating an environment for Sapphire, and so she was returned to her temporary home with one of our staff members. She would love to find a home of her own.

Sapphire is spayed, microchipped, crate trained and ready to steal your heart!

Adoption fee $425.00.
