Help Phoenix, a 5-year-old Pitbull Mix, Find a Home at Chesapeake Animal Services

Phoenix is our Shelter Pet Saturday Pet of the Week from Pitbull Tobacco & More.

Stephanie with Phoenix

He is a pitbull mix who was found as a stray in August and brought to Chesapeake Animal Services where he has quickly become a volunteer favorite.  Is a member of their Snout and About program, which lets volunteers and community members take dogs out on field trips for a day and members report that he is friendly, housetrained and loves squeaky toys.

Phoenix is heartworm-positive.  It is not contagious and was transmitted to him through a mosquito bite.  Although heartworms can be very dangerous if left untreated, his treatment is covered through CAS’s medical fund. Learn how you can donate to the fund here.
