About Deuce




Deuce found himself at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control as a stray with a microchip that was never registered. That stinks for him. PSA: Please be sure that your pet’s microchip is updated. Your animal cannot be returned to your if your information is not on the chip or inaccurate.

Fast forward a few months, and Deuce is now a celebrity! He recently competed in Animal Planet’s Dog Bowl II on 2/2/19. Deuce was a supreme travel companion, calmly riding in airplanes and subways, exploring New York City, and just soaking it all in. We are in awe of this guy!

Deuce is a (young!) 11-year-old Plott Hound mix, weighing 48 lbs. We are all in disbelief that he is actually 11, because when our volunteers who run with the dogs come back from a 1.5 mile run with Deuce — he still wants to go for more!


Deuce is a gentle soul who loves a good back scratching on the grass and to play with his toys. He is a super smart boy who does well with other dogs. Deuce rides well in the car and enjoys chewing on his bully sticks. Our volunteers just can’t say enough positive things…
