‘Walking With Dinosaurs — The Arena Spectacular’

Despite several radiation and chemo treatments, loss of hearing and an ever-present life-threatening diagnosis, Buddy gets up every morning, puts on his vest and goes to work. His job may just be providing a little emotional support to the patients at Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy in Ahwatukee Foothills, but it’s a job Buddy the dog takes very seriously.
Hawkeye is a large mixed breed guy that came to Friends for Life Animal Rescue from the Yuma Humane Society. His family turned him in ... the owners said they had no time for him. He is about 2 years old. He is a very nice boy and silly as well. Volunteers at the shelter have been working with him, teaching him commands such as lay down. It has been observed that he is food possessive and, because of this, he should be an only animal in his new home. Hawkeye is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He currently lives at Friends for Life’s adoption center, 143 W. Vaughn Ave., in downtown Gilbert. His adoption fee is $125.
Hannah is a beautiful girl, estimated to be a 2-year-old Shepherd blend. She originally was found as a stray in Yuma. She weighs more than 60 pounds. Hannah is a great companion for humans, however, not so much for other animals. She becomes possessive if dogs are around and want her toys or her food. She’ll need to be the only animal in the home because of this. She can and does, however, interact with other dogs when there are no toys or food around.
A group of animal lovers who lost their pets say they are now trying to "turn tragedy into triumph."
Chaplain is all ready in his black and white tuxedo, but has nowhere to go. He is a beautiful boy as you can see and volunteers agree he is a busy boy. He enjoys his play toys so his new family will hopefully provide some for him and not mind that he has an active schedule.

Jordan is an adorable 8-year-old Jack Russell terrier who wins the hearts of everyone he comes in contact with, humans and canines alike! He’s one of the happiest and sweetest Jack Russell terriers we’ve ever met. This friendly, loving little guy will solicit pets from anyone who is passing by. Jordan likes to be held and enjoys warming laps; add belly rubs to the mix and you will have one happy dog on your hands! Don’t let Jordan’s age fool you — this guy is active and full of life! He loves to play and if it involves tennis balls, he will play fetch for hours! Jordan loves being outside; he’ll stand facing the sun with the wind in his face and I swear you can see him smiling! Jordan and his canine foster brother enjoy patrolling the backyard several times a day. Walks are huge on his list which isn’t a problem because he has impeccable leash manners and does great during car rides.
Big Mac is a big hunk of a dog and everyone that meets him just loves him. He’s said to be an American bulldog/mastiff mix about 5 years old. He had been adopted a year or so ago but recently returned due to trying to put the family’s pet tortoise in his belly. Thankfully Big Mac was unsuccessful and the tortoise lives to tell the tale.
Each year in Maricopa County, tens of thousands of animals are euthanized. The shelters fill up, the programs that aid animals with medical and behavioral problems can only take so many cases, and, unfortunately, the whole system can only care for so many.
Fondue is quite the handsome boy. He is about a year old, great with other cats but probably would not enjoy the company of dogs. Fondue has a lot of kitten left in him, but don’t be surprised if he is timid at first until he gets comfortable. His shyness upon first meeting is probably why he’s been waiting so long for a home. Once he’s comfortable expect that he’ll be ordering up some belly rubs and provide you with some “silly kitty” entertainment. He loves having his head scratched, been known to cuddle with his kitty friends, and bird watching from the window.
