One-eyed-Jack is an interesting story. He was found wandering and homeless in AshFork, AZ. A trapping group was called to rescue him but they had no fosters so he went straight to boarding at Prescott Animal Hospital. I was called because he was reported to be an "old dog". I went to meet him at PAH and knew immediately that he was not very old. I left him there only to return a week later and decided to foster him. He was not a good candidate for Dogtree Pines but the thought of him just sitting in boarding day after day didn't sit well with me. Jack (then Sarge) is deaf as well as blind in one eye, with a crushed skull injury over the other eye. Once I got him home, I realized he was much younger than once thought, only about 2 or 3. We took him to several adoption events. Everyone loves him but is afraid of the commitment of a "special needs" dog. After several months, One-eyed-Jack officially became one of the Dogtree Pines pack and moved into a wonderful foster home in Prescott Valley where he has 3 other sibling dogs.

It’s a bakers dozen. Meet “Baker” a 12-year-old white lab rescued from the euthanasia list at MCACC yesterday by a tribe of people…and I am not kidding, it took that many people to get him out and safe. He reportedly had an abdominal mass but after multiple vet visits, there is no mass. In fact, he's in perfect health and is most likely young than we thought. Baker was moved to a wonderful lab foster in Scottsdale and has a big grass yard, a pool and several other lab siblings.
Baker is fostered by Ann.
Maven the Raven came to us from a family with medical problems that could no longer keep her. Maven was said to be a black lab (her pics looked like it too) but when we arrived she was more Great Dane than lab. That's ok! Raven needed us and we were going to help. Raven had the WORST dental disease and grumpy because of it. She also had some pretty severely arthritic knees. Raven got the dental she needed and also recieved PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma) in her knees. She is feeling like a million bucks and loves her new foster Mark. He even takes her walking at the courthouse square. Yay for Raven!
Raven is fostered by Volunteer Mark.
Salli is home and her new name is "Wednesday"! I believe she responds to her name and may have had it since she was young. See… She was originally adopted from Pinal (Casa Grande) in 2009 and then picked up a month ago as a stray and never claimed. We believe she may have been Alli all those years so, I decided just to add an “S” on and call her SALLI. She was absolutely the perfect passenger all the way home. Once here, she explored the yard and looked over at the 14 dogs on the other side of the fence. As it turns out she LOVES people but isn't particularly fond of other dogs. Salli went to a great foster that doesn't have another dog but rather a cat that Salli gets along with perfectly. When she showed up in her skull and cross bones sweater, they named her Wednesday Adams. Little Wednesday has found her nitch! She is a total sweetheart. Wednesday is fostered by Sukey & Eric.
