Before coming here, I was fed by a stranger. Even then, I kept my distance, but needed the nourishment because my 6 puppies were depending on me. That kind man found homes for my babies, but worried about me because he was leaving for many months. Who would feed me? How would I stay safe? TALGV was the answer. Food, security, comfort—such a comfy bed!—and patient people are here for me. They let me take my time getting used to a leash and going for walks; I found it easy to grow accustomed to their gentle affection. In my own way, I thank them, and they seem to know what I dream about most: A home of my own, where love and happiness abide, and wonderful people let me love them forever.
I’m a happy, friendly dog who’s grateful to be here because not long ago, I was hurt. Back then, I suffered the trauma that threatens every stray dog: I was hit by a car. But I was also lucky. A Good Samaritan rescued me and immediately took me for medical care, and now we can celebrate my remarkable recovery! Plus, I even made new friends along the way—the animal hospital staff gave me high marks for “adoptability,” which I think means they liked me, and TALGV volunteers agree. They say I have the makings of a great companion—a smart and loyal Heeler mix male, 1-year-9-months old, about 62 pounds, with a tan and white coat, a handsome face, and a great big heart. If you’re looking for a friend, I’m right here!
My brother, Loki, and I were adopted as puppies into a family with small children, cats and dogs, and we got along with all of them! But now our family is expecting another baby and moving to a place with a smaller yard, so we’re each looking for a new home and people to love. I’m an 18-month-old male, light brown with a white chest, and an athletic build—somewhat slender but tall. My former family said I let the kids lay on me and even pull my tail; guess that says a lot about my gentle, generous nature. Sure, I can bark, but I’m basically a peaceful, welcoming guy; when the volunteers pet or brush me, I’m content. Could you and I make each other happy forever? I’m guessing the answer is yes!
My brother, Thor, and I were adopted as puppies into a family with small children, cats and dogs, and we got along with all of them! But now our family is expecting another baby and moving to a place with a smaller yard, so we’re each looking for a new home and people to love. I’m an 18-month-old male, light brown and white, somewhat slender but tall. People also notice that my eyes are different colors—one blue, one brown. My former family said I loved to lie down on couch (who doesn’t?) and be petted. Sure, I know how to bark, but I’m basically a peaceful, welcoming guy; when the volunteers pet or brush me, I’m so content. Could you and I make each other happy forever? I’m guessing the answer is yes!
When my brothers and I arrived here at TALGV (which was because there were simply too many dogs where we were born), we apparently resembled cowboys because we were given country western names. These days, the others have been adopted and so I’m going solo, letting my own charming personality shine through and thoroughly enjoying the company of my people friends. We play together, exercise, and cuddle a lot; I’m an attentive, smart little guy, a handsome Heeler/Staffie mix male with a sleek black and white coat. At 5 months I was 20 pounds; a little older now and still growing, I already have a full-grown dream that you can make come true: To go home with you and become the dog you’ll love and be happy with for a long time to come.
