Hi… my name is Ezmaee,

Adopted 2-5-18

People pleasing is number one on my to-do list, so when someone asks me to “sit up pretty,” I’m glad to do it. My friends here say it’s my trademark because I’m pretty inside and out—a red and white Border Collie mix female, 67 pounds and 6-1/2 years old, who’s a delightful companion for going on walks, running, playing, and cuddling. After my former person suffered a significant knee injury, she couldn’t walk or run with me anymore, and wanted me to have the chance to be with someone who could—someone who’ll relish my energy and joy of living. She called me “extremely loveable,” gentle and tolerant with the 16-year-old at her house, and trained to “sit” and “stay” too. I’d love the chance to make you happy. Will you let me try?

Hi… my name is Maxine,

Adopted 1-11-18

Comes with Free Vet Care for Life

We all understand that young pups need attention and training, and they earn it mainly by being so adorable. Well, I’m on the other end of that spectrum. Oh, I hope you find me adorable, too, but I’m 10 years old now and so I’m best at relaxing walks and quiet times by your side. I’m already leash trained, get along with cats and children, and described as gentle and tolerant. When first here, I was terribly shy, but quickly responded to kindness from friendly people. You may also like to know that I come with Free Vet Care for Life! I’m a very sweet Border Collie mix female, about 45 pounds, who’ll respond to your love by giving you mine, and I imagine lots of happy tomorrows spent together. Shall we start today?

Hi… my name is Mandy,

Adopted 10-5-17

Things were crowded at home with four other dogs who played a little too hard for me. Oh, I generally got along well with those dogs, and the cats and horses, but I’m a gentle soul—shy until we become acquainted, and prefer cuddling to roughhousing, so it was decided that I’d be a better fit in a new home. At just 1 year old, I love to play, know commands like “sit,” “down” and “shake,” and will be happy going on long walks or just watching TV together. I’ve been good with kids ages 9 through 12, still unsure with younger children, and I’m leash trained. A 55-pound female, mainly black with white speckled paws, I’m a very loving and sweet dog whose biggest hope is that I’m the perfect companion for you!

Hi… my name is Louie,

Adopted 8-13-17

Sometimes things happen that you just don’t want to believe. I’m an adorable, small, 2-year-old Corgi/Border Collie mix male, who was found in the desert, tied to a thistle bush with multiple ties. It appeared I’d been there a while. People who hear my story just shake their heads, especially since I’m such a lovable guy! But you know what? I’m calling that “water under the bridge.” Today my life is happy and improving every day. I’m making friends, going for walks, playing with toys—my finder said I like playing with kids, too—and visitors often stop to say hello. Sometimes we make the happy connection—that thing that happens when you’re on the same “wave length.” I’d love to meet you, too, and who knows? We might decide we belong together forever!

Hi… my name is Daisy,

Adopted 8-1-17

My former person and I had a sweet life together. She loved me for being “affectionate, loyal, a great lap dog,” and I loved how she brushed me and rubbed my belly. But she’s moved many states away to a home with very young children and another dog, and since I wasn’t good with the toddlers and prefer to be the only canine, she left me here. That was tough; I’m shy and didn’t know what to expect. But I’m also active, smart, and love going for walks, so things are better now. Plus, you might like to know I have good indoor manners, “ask” to go outside, and give kisses if you like. I’m a 3-1/2-year-old female, 48 pounds, and I could be great company at home if you’ll give me the chance.

Hi… my name is Eli,

Adopted 1-7-17

When I first arrived at TALGV, I’d sit at the fence dividing my doggie neighbor and me, and the two of us would silently touch our heads together for comfort. Maybe that story tells you the kind of gentle soul I am. Some folks see “Border Collie” and think I’m high energy, but the people I lived with for a few weeks described me as “very quiet, easy going, a great companion,” and a “great house dog.” They said I was gentle with small children, got along with other dogs, and love to play fetch. With two other dogs and two new babies, they rescued me but couldn’t keep me, so I’m here; a 3-year-old, 42-pound, white and brown male. The volunteers call me a treasure, but I just want to be called yours.

Hi… my name is Remy,

Adopted 1-26-17

As a stray dog, I found the San Xavier area, where I begged for food from a fry bread stand and slept in the mission church. Then, one day a mobile vet clinic arrived and I saw my chance! I presented myself to that clinic, they took me in and eventually brought me here. At that point I was thin for a 1-year-old Border Collie mix male (45 pounds), but the regular food here is great. Best of all? Being with people every day. Back when I was a stray, I wasn’t hungry just for food, I craved companionship, too. It’s in my sweet, gentle, affectionate nature to be somebody’s friend, and you’ll see that when we meet. How about we make that happen soon because I’m ready to become your faithful companion today!

Hi… my name is Lucy,

Adopted 11-25-16

When I grow up, I want to be a dog like my mom—playful but calm, eager to please, and fun-loving, too. And you know what? I think I’m off to a good start! Mom is a beautiful Border Collie mix, and she’s been a wonderful mother. Even though she was a stray when found, she gave all her babies excellent care and teaching. For instance, on a walk recently, one of my siblings got too far away. Mom didn’t panic or get mad, but she barked at him until we were together again. That’s the kind of smart, devoted dog I want to be! I’m a delightful female, brown and white, now about 24 pounds, and if you make me yours, we can make each other happy for a long time to come!  (new photos and amended bio will be available soon)
