Need to Rehome a Dog in Phoenix?
Hi, My name is Stanley!
I am a Red/Short Male Dashund Dog. I am 6 and weigh 20 lbs. I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I am healthy, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. I am house trained, well behaved, very loving, and good with children.
I am looking for a very loving home with owners who can give me their time, love, care and devotion. I am a very special boy, and deserve a very special home.
I would prefer to be an only pet, but may be ok with another dog or cat, depending on the pet. I have never been around other pets in my home.

Stanley’s Current Home Environment
We have a big home with a yard and doggy door. Unfortunately being a busy, working parent, we are not home a lot. The environment is clean and we play with Stan as much when we are home. Stan is not in a crate but has free run of the house and yard. We have a pool and Stan loves to swim.
Stanley’s Current Family:
My family consists of myself and my daughter, who is 4. I work 40+ hours per week and my daughter is in school most days. Most weekends are very busy and unfortunately we are not able to devote as much attention to our Dog as he deserves. We hate to give him up but can tell he needs more attention than we are able to give him and he deserves a more attentive home/family.
Stanley’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
He really enjoys balls, stuffed animals and all people food. His favorite activity is just being home as he has gotten older he has gotten a little anxious. But he used to enjoy dog parks and hiking.
Cute Stanley Story:
When my daughter was born Stanley seemed very unsure of her but they have since become great friends. She often brings home things she makes at school for him. As a baby he was always very protective of her.
Why is Stanley Being Rehomed?
As discussed, My lifestyle since adopting my pet has changed dramatically. Initially being a single person with roommates always in the home Stan received lots of love and attention as a puppy. Over time and becoming a single parent, the attention I am able to give Stanley has lessened.
He seems to have developed some behaviors which I believe are attention seeking. Giving him more time and attention is not really an option as I work full time and as a parent have many other responsibilities. He does attention-seeking behaviors such as licking and barking which I’ve tried everything to resolve with Vet visits, however I do believe it is because he’s become somewhat neglected.
I spent a lot of time and money on his care with vet visits, expensive anti-itch shampoos and toys, but it isn’t effective to stop the licking. I’ve tried several medications to attempt to resolve the licking issue and nothing seems to work which leads me and my vet to believe its just a behavior issue. Although I tried to give him as much love and attention when home I can it doesn’t seem to be enough.
He spends most time at home alone and doesn’t seem to be flourishing. I believe a home with a retired person or a stay at home parent where he can receive more attention would be better for him. He has anxiety when I leave and unfortunately I must leave daily due to work and on the weekends as well. I’ve tried my best to resolve some of the behavioral issue and I want the best for him, but I think he needs a home where he can have more love, attention, and social interaction than I can give him.
Stanley’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
I’d like to find a family which is able to spend more time with Stanley. Either a retired person or a stay at home parent. Ideally they would not have other pets as I’m not sure how Stanley would handle that change after being an only pet for 6 years. It would be great if my daughter and I could still visit with him. Anywhere he would get lots of love.
