SOLO IN A NUTSHELL: Very social, goofball of a 10 month old. People and dog friendly. Cats are an unknown.
While we were waiting for Sapphire's transport to be arranged from northern California, this adorable boy appeared at the same shelter as a "stray." Shelter personnel had their suspicions that the person who turned him in was the actual owner, but as legally required, they took him in nonetheless and put him on a stray hold in an attempt to locate his owner. When the hold period was up, and Sapphire was still at the shelter (the heat in AZ had become too much for a private pilot flight to Phoenix), they reached out to us to see if we would be willing to take this boy, too.

Solo is ready to load up with Officer Bokum for his ride from northern California

UPDATE 6/16: We received word from volunteer transporter Nia this morning that Sapphire and Solo had been picked up from Officer Bokum about 3 hours from the shelter and the pair are on their way to Phoenix! According to Nia, "We just got over the vine. Solo is a bit skittish and not a big fan of us so he's in the kennel and we did not take him out." Poor baby. We're going to have to spoil him a bit when he gets here.
