Meet Phoenix (adoption Pending)

Add to favourites

Meet Phoenix! Phoenix is a shy 2-year-old lab mix who has been working hard to come out of his shell and show off his stellar personality. For the first year of his life, Phoenix was left outside and didn’t get a chance to learn the doggy basics, like wearing a collar or walking on leash. After losing one of his legs in a car accident 6 months ago, Phoenix came into our care and began the process of healing from his past and getting ready for his future!

Phoenix still has quite a ways to go when it comes to living his best life, and is looking for a patient, calm home that is willing to take it slow when it comes to building his confidence and trust. Over the last month, Phoenix has gone from hiding in his crate all day to an affectionate boy that greets his favorite people with full-body wiggles! He takes a while to warm up to people, and likes to have control over when he gets attention and when he has some alone time, but once you earn his trust he loves to show off his charming, goofy personality!

Phoenix will need a home with a dedicated outdoor space for him to spend time in, as he still isn’t comfortable wearing a leash. Working your way up to walks may take a while, but in the meantime he loves to lounge in the sun all day long! Stairs may be challenging for him as he only has three legs, and he will need to go to a home without any children. He seems to get along well with other dogs though, as long as he can get away from them when he is feeling overwhelmed. Prospective adopters may also be asked to come for multiple visits with Phoenix to build a relationship before taking him home, so please keep this in mind when applying. Phoenix has an incredibly sweet and gentle temperament, and will definitely grow to be a fantastic member of the family once he settles in.

If you are ready to help Phoenix reach his full potential, submit an application on the BCSPCA website today!
Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.

***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application***
