TRIXIE (now known as "TORREY")

TRIXIE IN A NUTSHELL: We are just getting to know her.
Poor Trixie was basically dumped by her owner. She was found as a stray and, when her owner was contacted, she was surrendered over the phone as the owner didn't want her anymore!

Posted on Facebook: "She was found by animal control. Her owner was contacted and they surrendered her over the phone. They don't want her. Trixie is very afraid now that she's in the shelter and making matters worse is that the shelter has her hidden in a dark isolation kennel that is completely off limits to the public-Only shelter staff can see her and they don't have time to sit and interact with her or take her for walks, so she'll only get worse the longer she's there."

UPDATE 7/29: After countless emails about this girl, even though our intake was closed, we simply could not let her down and so we agreed to take her. Thanks to our friends at Husky Camp who picked up Trixie at the shelter on our behalf and will be fostering her until a foster spot opens up for her in Phoenix. Chuck immediately changed her call name to "Torrey" because she didn't need to remember an owner who didn't want her.
