Axo

Hi… my name is Axo,

I was found running down a road alone, but when I arrived here, people said friendly things to me right away. They complimented my bright eyes and handsome face, short tan and white coat, and athletic-looking physique (about 75 pounds). I was a little nervous back then (and filthy dirty, so I’d probably been on my own a while), but loved the attention—the kind you get from a friend, which is exactly what I’m looking for! A 3-1/2-year-old male, I’m playful but can be calm, too; happy just to keep you company. I’m already pretty good on a leash (if I get lost in a sniff, you can remind me to keep up) and eager to please. So how about we get together and start our own beautiful friendship—one that lasts forever.

Hi… my name is Harley,

When I was lost, I tried to help myself by greeting my finder when she arrived home that night. As she got out of her car, I walked up to her and did my best to be friendly. She described me as “very sweet.” The next day, the TALGV dog coordinator also described me as “very sweet.” (Must admit my intake sheet used two more words as well—“needs bath”—but we’ve taken care of that.) My finder had no idea where I belonged, but I do: I belong with someone who wants a dog who’s friendly and sweet, playful and happy, eager to be a loyal companion. I’m an 18-month-old black and white male, about 55 pounds, and if you say I can be yours, that’ll be the best news I’ve ever had!

Hi… my name is Boscoe,

I arrived at the Animal League one Saturday morning, nervous, not knowing what to expect. I’d been found on South La Canada, and although they immediately called me a big handsome guy, I knew I was also a guy without a home or people who loved me. But I settled in quickly and soon was feeling much better. Right away, the volunteers called me a “nice dog,” because I’m friendly and have good manners. I sit when you say to and I’m good on a leash, so walks are fun every day. And then there’s playing with toys—one of my favorite things. I’m about 3 years old and 76 pounds, gray-blue and white, with a whole lot of love to give and fun to have. Wouldn’t it be great if I were yours!

Hi… my name is Baloo,

Adopted 3-11-17

Let me tell you the best parts of being rescued: Regular food, shelter, safety, and, for me, top of the list is the company. Before coming here, I was lost and lonely. But now I have dog and people friends. Just being me—sweet and friendly—has made me a popular guy! Recently, a volunteer took me on an overnight-for-fun and I showed her more of my good qualities, like I’m crate-trained, not a barker, and when we saw javelinas on our walk, I ignored them. Sometimes I make a “growly” sound when I try to talk, snore when I snooze, and maybe you’ve noticed my great big smile. I’m a happy 75-pound adult Staffie mix male, and when you look in my eyes, I hope you see your next best friend.

Hi… my name is Dora,

Adopted 3-20-17

Dora has earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate!

(Note: Dora’s bio needs update.) I was found on a rainy day, in a busy traffic intersection, running from car to car, looking for someone who would help me. It was not a good place for any dog to be. Luckily, a good person saw my dangerous predicament and came to my rescue. I’m so grateful because today I’m safe at TALGV and can rest easy. Now I’m looking for a special someone who sees what a good dog I am – sweet, fun-loving, and very attentive to my human friends. If you and I become friends, I’ll do my very best to make you happy, too. I’m a 3-year-old Staffie mix female, about 58 pounds, tan and white with lots of pretty spots. Please let me show you what a great companion I can be.

Hi… my name is Travis,

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.

Hi… my name is Bruce (boy),

My rescuer was truly my angel. She saw a man kicking me and yelling at me, and since he clearly didn’t want or deserve me, she took me home. She couldn’t keep me forever, but we grew very fond of each other in our brief time together, and she improved my life by leaps and bounds just by making me safe. Plus, she showed me that there are many kind and friendly people with room in their hearts for me. It’s been reported that I’m not friendly with other dogs, but “great with people!” I’m a 3-year-old brown and white Staffie mix male, about 76 pounds, and you can imagine how elated I’ll be to have a loving, comfy home—a place where I’ll do my best to make you happy each and every day!
