Hi… my name is Dixie,

Adopted  1-6-22

When I was found wandering around a local shopping center,     I allowed myself to be lured into my rescuer’s car with treats.    For two days I stayed with the family, which consisted of two children (ages 4 and 8 years old), and 4 dogs/cats. Unfortunately it was discovered that I do not do well with cats, but it seems I was gentle and tolerant with the children. It was suggested that I might do well with an active family, who could spend a lot of time with me. Since I can jump fences, I will need a safe enclosure. I know the command “sit,” and I appear to be leash trained… plus I can use a doggie door. Actually, I’m a very friendly, sociable girl! Looking for an adorable, compact sweetheart? That would be ME!

SPUDS is a handsome 2-year-old, 65-pound neutered male American Staffordshire Terrier that needs a new home. He is in good health, shots are up to date, and medical records are available. He is housebroken, leash trained, and crate trained. He knows many commands, such as: sit, down, come, up, and touch. He is okay with children, but due to his size, kids should be over 10 years of age. Spuds needs to be an only dog. There is no adoption fee for Spuds. If you would welcome him into your home, please call Andrea between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. at 520-307-9481.

Hi… my name is Zeus (aka Spot),

Adopted 11-6-18

My history includes a scary monsoon storm, a divorce, then an unpleasant encounter with another dog, but also lots of friends—including some other animals—and years of a happy home life. So I’m optimistic! You could say I’m a dog with a dream—one that starts with meeting someone special like you, and showing you why I’m called “a truly great dog.” A fun buddy at playtime, I know several commands, walk well on a leash, and ride well in a car. I’ve been good with kids (ages 8 and up) and some other dogs; even lived with cats in the past! A handsome 6-year-old Staffie male, naturally sweet and affectionate, I’m also house trained and crate trained. And if you give me the loving home I’m dreaming about, I’ll give you my whole heart forever.

Hi… my name is Montes,

Adopted 5-14-18

Sometimes sad things happen to good dogs. Take me, for instance (and I really hope you do!). I was abandoned at a local store. Then, when I was first examined here, I cowered the way dogs do when someone has hurt them. But you know what? I can erase all that to make room for all my happy days ahead. I’m really sure those good times are coming because I’m such a good dog—already close to leash-trained (just remind me to heel), not much of a barker, a fast learner, and a sweet boy who will always appreciate your kindness and affection. I’m 1-1/2 years old, 55 pounds, and if you’ll be my hero—the one who gives me a chance at a loving, happy home—I’ll give you my whole heart forever.

Hi… my name is Brutus,

Adopted 11-28-16

If you know someone who‘s just naturally friendly, then you already kind of know me because that’s my personality, too. I was found in the desert east of town; my rescuer whistled, asked if I’d like to go for a ride, and I happily joined my new friend and jumped in her car. (I was also quite grateful for a big drink of water.) Here at TALGV, my many new friends can tell you I’m a lovable, easy-going guy.   Even better, we can get together and I’ll show you myself! I’m a 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, 67 pounds, and when we meet you might say, “This guy is such a great companion, I’m gonna take him home!” At least, that’s what you say in my dreams, and you can make those dreams come true!

PS That sissy pink stuff on my nose is sunscreen… they make us wear it here at TALGV.

Hi… my name is Achilles.

Adopted May 6, 2015

Achilles has earned/received his American Kennel Club (AKC)  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.

When I first came me to TALGV last year, there was “no room at the inn,” so I stayed at a local boarding kennel for a while where the TALGV volunteers visited and walked me periodically so I didn’t get lonely. Well that was then and this is now, and things sure have changed since then! I’m SO proud to announce that I just earned my nationally accredited Canine Good Citizen award! That means that I’m friendly with strangers, do “heel, sit, down, and stay” on command, come when called, and lots of other “good behavior” things (check it out on the Internet!). I’m a classic black and white Staffie mix boy, now a bit over two years old, who is just aching for a chance to prove that I’m a real winner!

Hi… my name is Ruby.

Adopted July 14, 2015


She earned/received her AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification on July 6, 2015.

My sister, Diamond, and I lived with our first family all our lives until they lost their home and moved to a place that didn’t allow big dogs like us. A year after we came to TALGV, another couple adopted us and we lived happily with them for two years until they decided to go their separate ways. Our little family consisted of a mom, dad, my sister, and another small dog, but no young kids or cats. (I got along well with older children who visited, but in my enthusiasm, I tend to play a bit rough, so maybe I should avoid small critters in general!). I’m happy to report I’ve earned my Canine Good Citizen certificate, and being 8 years old now, also come with Free Vet Care for Life, so if you want a companionable, well-behaved friend, I’m the lady for you!
