Like a true phoenix, our girl Bark Phoenix has over come a rough start in her young life. Phoenix found herself pregnant at the shelter when OPH found her, it was a difficult birth and she was unable to nurse her puppies. Despite her past heartache she is a happy go lucky kind of girl who greets each day with a wagging tail! She appears to be housebroken and understands a number of commands such as sit and lay down. She loves to play with toys and run zoomies in the fenced yard. She enjoys the company of other dogs and respects when they don't want to play. Phoenix has a nice energy level, she is energetic and active as a typical young dog but can also entertain herself with a bone and enjoy calm moments with the family. She is young girl just over a year old and will need some typical training to learn not to jump on people and furniture. The continued training will be a great way to build a bond! Phoenix is very affectionate and loves her people, she will follow you to the moon and back! You could not ask for a more loyal friend. Phoenix crates well when it's time for her humans to go to work, occasionally she may cry a little but it subsides quickly. Phoenix would love a family or person who will include her in life's adventures - could it be you? Don't miss out on this little lady, she's a real gem!
I'm a playful pup and love to run with other dogs, see me in action - video 1.
Bark Phoenix is now spayed, mircrochipped and up to date on vaccinations. She is fostered in Silver Spring, MD.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
