Hi… my name is Luke,

I was found near a railroad track, a lost dog who’s apparently known tough times in the past because my smooth brown coat bears some scars. Am I still a handsome guy? Absolutely yes, say my dear friends. Moreover, they say my good looks are from my true nature shining through because I’m a remarkably sweet, gentle, and very loving dog. My finder kept me for ten days and said I was gentle with their teenager and got along with their other dogs. Here at TALGV, I’m delighted when people visit me and when we go for walks, I’m great on the leash. A 6-1/2-year-old Boxer mix male, medium size at 49 pounds, I’m confident the best times of my life are right up ahead, especially if I get to share them with you!

Hi… my name is Brooklyn,

Whew! My life has undergone so many changes lately, my head’s been spinning! First, my former family and I moved, my living area going from spacious to small, then they became very busy and there wasn’t time for me. Finally, they decided that the best thing for me would be a new home. So I’m here, scared and nervous at first, but happy to be enjoying lots of my favorite things again: I love treats, toys, walks (I’m very good on a leash) and especially the company of a kind person. I’m a very sweet 6-year-old Boxer mix female, a nice size at just 37 pounds, and when I look up at you with my big brown eyes, I hope you see the great friend I could be. How about we try that today?

Hi… my name is Emma,

Here’s something you may already know: Dogs don’t always like each other. Sadly, I didn’t get along with the Rat Terrier at my former home, so now I’m hoping someone else will love me! My former people said I have lots of good qualities. For instance, they say I’m leash-trained, and already know commands like “sit,” “down,” and “off.” Plus, I’m very loyal; I’ll sit with you and “give paw” for hours! And, by the way, I love sitting in the sun; maybe we could do that together. Most of all, I want to belong to someone with that give-love and get-love kind of relationship. I’m a 6-year-old, cream-colored Boxer/Lab mix female, very slender at 35 pounds, and if you give me the chance, I’ll do my very best to earn your love forever!

Hi… my name is Rosemary,

Adopted with Thyme 2-10-17

I’m such a calm and sweet dog, you might be surprised at what I’ve been through. When found with Thyme—the Lab mix who remains faithfully by my side—I was injured, probably from an attack by a larger animal. My multiple wounds and fracture required medical treatment. So how do I stay sweet-natured and optimistic? Because my big, strong heart tells me my future holds fun and happiness with someone kind and wonderful like you. Thyme and I remain devoted to each other and want to share our home always, so please love us both! If you do, we’ll double the love for you in return! I’m a 4-year-old Boxer mix female, 44 pounds, and Thyme is a 1-year-old Lab mix male, 41 pounds, both eager to start the good life with you!

Hi… my name is Aqui,

Adopted 12-27-16

My former person loved me a lot and the feeling was mutual, but our energy levels weren’t really in sync anymore. After careful thought, he decided it was best for me to find a new home, and so now I’m here, eager to make friends and have new adventures! I’m a lively, slender 4-year-old female Boxer, all grown up but still loving to romp and play every day! I’m very energetic, learning to get even better at walking on a leash, and delighted to share all such activities with people. My short-hair coat is an easy-care, beautiful brindle and white; my big brown eyes and adorable expression will charm you at first sight. I just know I’ll feel the same about you, too, so let’s get together and discover how happy we’ll be together!

Hi… my name is Marley,

Adopted with Bailey 1-8-17

Can you picture my sister Bailey and me as puppies, running the streets? That’s where we were found about 1-1/2 years ago. Now our rescuer is moving and cannot take us along, so today we’re 3-year-olds, still together and looking for home. Although Bailey’s a little braver, we’re both shy at first, but once we warm up—well, to quote our former person, “They’re very friendly, loving, and well behaved.” She also said we love kids, are good with cats, leash trained, and know “sit,” “stay,” and “no.” We’re females, each about 50 pounds; I’m the tan and white one, especially good at cuddling, and Bailey is playful and happy. We’re devoted sisters who want to stay together, and will bring love and happiness with us. How about we give all that to you?

Hi… my name is Hope,

Adopted 12-9-16

My name says a lot, doesn’t it? Indeed, my finders felt I’d reached my last hope when I showed up at their door in what they described as “very bad shape.” But they also recognized something else in me—a sweetness that was stronger than the tough times I’d obviously been through. So they brought me here, where the volunteers welcomed me with open arms. “A gentle spirit,” they call me, and they’ve seen how I respond wholeheartedly to their loving touches. I think those who need love the most can be the ones who are best at giving love, too, and giving love is another one my strengths. I’m a 3-year-old Boxer female, rust in color, and I expect we’ll see the best in each other every day once you make me yours.

Hi… my name is Sissy,

Adopted 12-3-16

I was rescued from a homeless shelter, and I’m thankful for the happy turn my life has taken. My rescuer kept me at her place for a month, where I lived with 8 other animals—small dogs, cats, and a parrot—and she said I was friendly with them all. I was still learning (she said I’d flinch when objects came toward me), but proved to be leashed trained, smart, and teachable… kind of the perfect dog guest! Now I’m friends with the volunteers here, and they give me high marks for lovability, too. I’m 1-1/2 years old, about 56 pounds; a sweetheart in a brindle coat. If you look in my soft brown eyes and can see the love and loyalty I have to give, won’t you agree we’re made for each other!
