Meet Phoenix

Phoenix has arrived into foster care after having to be surrendered by his loving family of 9 years due to changes in circumstances brought about by this crazy year.

He is a 9 year old male English Springer Spaniel.

He is a friendly dog and loves lots of attention. He gets along perfectly with kids and does not bark much. He has grown up as an only dog in an outside environment and would come indoors on hold and cold days but is not toilet trained but does prefer to wait to use the grass when left indoors overnight so does seem to know what to do.

He is not a fan of other dogs regardless of their size so needs to be in a home with no other dogs and would need further socialisation and training to change his behaviour towards other dogs.

He is used to an exercise routine of 30-40 minutes of walks per day however he does not react well to seeing other dogs on his walks.

He gets fed once a day, one wet food sachet and two scoops of dry.

D.O.B.: 01/07/2012

Located in Waterloo, NSW and is currently being fostered as an indoors dog with lots of walks and exercise during the day.

Phoenix was adopted on 02 October 2021 after 3 weeks in foster care
