Hi… my name is Starsky (aka Blue),

All modesty aside, I’ve been told I am handsome, smart, and energetic with magnetic blue eyes! Need to hear more? I’m a young, affectionate Aussie Shepherd mix who enjoys playing fetch and will even drop my toy at your feet so we can keep the game going. I like people, other dogs, and – well – life! Take me for a car ride, or let’s go on a hike! I’m quick to follow all the commands I ‘ve been taught, plus I’m eager to learn more. I’m here at TALGV awaiting a new home because my first owners didn’t have the time and energy they thought I deserved. I’m a happy pup who wants to fill you up with the joy I can bring to our home!

Hi… my name is Patrice,

Adopted 5-4-19

I was found out on a road, all alone, and very shy at first. Everyone here said that was understandable after such a scary experience. So they were gentle with me, and within just a few days of getting acquainted, I blossomed! Knowing I was safe, I became confident enough to start showing the real me: Energetic, smart, and eager to make friends. The volunteers say my beautiful coat is soft; they like petting me and I love that kind of affection. They also say I appear to be an Aussie mix, but at just 27 pounds (and already 2 years old), I’m a small-medium size—every pound packed with personality. If you could love a lively dog, who wants to get and give lots of attention, we may be made for each other!

Hi… my name is Mikka,

Adopted 8-8-19

This year I had a wonderful vacation—a stay with my foster mom and dad. We had a great time being together. They called me gorgeous and puppy-soft, and frequently brushed my coat, which I loved. (They brushed my teeth, too, which was, well, okay.) I’m also a big fan of exercise; going on walks with them was a daily treat. Foster mom noted that I wasn’t always friendly around strangers or other dogs, but I listened to her well and responded quickly to commands. (They called me smart!) In their yard, which has a 5-foot wall, I didn’t try to get out, and inside, I showed that I’m kennel- and house-trained. Being in a happy, loving home was a dream come true. Would you give me a chance to be in yours forever?

Hi… my name is Sheba (aka Angel),

Adopted 7-31-18

“A loving, affectionate, loyal little dog.” That’s how a friend described me, although at 39 pounds, you might call me medium-small size. I’ve also been called very, very intelligent, well behaved and eager to please, as well as “back-side sensitive,” which might be due to the BBs removed from my backside (someone apparently shot at me). My life hasn’t always been easy, but I’ve remained very sweet natured and loving. Pleasingly calm, too, although I’m “dog selective,” which means I like some but not all other dogs. As for people, well, I absolutely LOVE being with people! Fortunately, many of them love me, too. Maybe that could include you! Just shy of 6 years old, I know I could have a very good life for a good long time, if you make me yours.

Hi… my name is Milly,

Adopted 3-11-17

If happiness is contagious, you might catch it from me. Granted, I’ve known tough times lately. I was a stray dog, found wandering around Rancho Sahuarita, and although my finder kept me for two weeks, he couldn’t find my owner. It kind of hurt that no one claimed me, but I’m past that now—especially because here, every day someone tells me what a great dog I am. And I do have lots of fun. I’m about 2 years old, an Aussie mix female who’s just 25 pounds (yes, I’m very slender), white with a tan face and a couple of tan circles on my sides. I’m very good on a leash (only occasionally making little jumps for joy), and have oceans of love to give. Will you let me give it to you?

Hi… my name is Marie,

Adopted 2-18-17

In my previous story, I told how my brother and I came here together, and now here’s the update: He’s been adopted—yahoo!—and I’m having my own exciting adventures. A volunteer invited me on a home visit and discovered lots of special things about me: I was great with her older, bigger dogs, (she actually said I was “perfect!”), seemed to want to potty outside when given the chance, was wonderful to bathe, and even appeared to know how to swim! Exploring her yard was so much fun—my little tail was wagging happy the whole time! I’m just over 2 months old, an adorable Aussie mix female with a merle coat in brown, tan and white, and if you give me a home full of love, I’ll love you right back forever!
