Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Phoenix.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

Wesley, Norfolk terrier and chihuahua mix
Wesley is a male Norfolk terrier and chihuahua mix in the care of The Pet Knot.
Wesley plays well with others, and he gets along well with other dogs. Good news: He's already house-trained. His vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.
Wesley's current caretakers say:
He was just so terrified of the shelter. In new environments and when meeting new people, he still reverts back to his fear. Once he knows you, given a few days he is obsessed — loves to be around you and near you. He does have some separation anxiety so an apartment would not be ideal for neighbors.

More from Meggy:
I’m blind, but that obviously doesn’t hamper my ability to be happy and have fun — I just bump into things sometimes. My playing skills are top notch — almost as good as my snuggling skills. And if you combine those two, you’ll understand how I’m such a good wrestler with my dog friends. I’m also super talkative, so you can be sure I’ll tell you what I’m thinking.
