Hi… my name is Bilbo (aka Buck),

Adopted 10-29-19

Note: Bio needs revision.

When I was found on Sahuarita Road across from Fry’s, it was evident I’d been on my own for a while. My coat was matted, severely so on my tail—being brushed by the volunteers here has been heavenly! Also, I needed some medical care and lots of just plain attention—that kindness that lets you know you’re not alone anymore. Very shy and quiet at first, being with people is restoring my confidence. Oh, I’m still an easy-going guy—a “gentle soul” my friends call me—and I was very well behaved at a recent community event. And now I’m starting to dream of a home, and, best of all, someone to share it with. A medium-sized, Spaniel/Corgi mix male, I’ll do my best to fit comfortably into your life and your heart.

Hi… my name is T-Rex,

Adopted 9-1-19

Every dog is unique, but I’m a little “uniquer.” Okay, maybe not uniquer (since there’s no such thing) but special—big ears, short legs, and my own friendly, lovable personality. Plus, even with the extra pounds I’m carrying around (and working on losing), I’m a pretty dapper little guy in my tuxedo black and white coat. I came here when my former people moved to a place where dogs aren’t allowed. We’d been together for five years and they reported that I was housetrained, leash-trained (the volunteers here agree), okay with cats (!), gentle and tolerant with a 15-year-old human. And if you look into my eyes, you’ll see that I’m deeply interested in you—hoping that we can be fast friends. I know you’re special, too, so we could be very good together.

Hi… my name is Beau,

Adopted 12-2-18

Before coming here, I was one of fifteen dogs all living together in the same place! Different breeds, genders, ages—mainly small to medium small—and we all got along. Still do! We’re a sweet, loving bunch. But when our people moved and couldn’t take everyone with them, most of us came here—some of us shy, others very friendly, and each one hoping for the same thing: A new, comfy, loving home. We’re already experiencing new things; leashes and doggie doors were unknown to us, and we’ve not been around small children. I’m an 8-year-old Corgi male, good-natured and adorable, with a gift for making friends. I tip the scales at about 41 pounds and, yes, a diet has been started, so I’m ready for a happy future with someone wonderful like 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 Maggie,

Adopted 12-22-16

Yes, I’m a 33-pound Corgi/Lab mix female—an unusual breed combination, but I’m happy with it! Indeed, I’m happy with most aspects of life—even now, when I need a new home because my person is moving to a place where she can’t have dogs. After all, I’ve had the pleasure of living with other dogs and we play great together. And those critters called cats—yeah, I’m great with them, too. Plus, I have a history of being good with children—it’s important to be gentle with them; I saw that in the kids I lived with (19 months and 5 years old). My favorite thing? Well, I love cuddling on the couch. Come visit and we’ll talk more. I say you can’t have too many friends, and sometimes good friends become family!

MARKIE is a 3-year old male, Chihuahua/corgi mix.  He is neutered and up to date on his shots.  He will do best with a little lady dog or even better, as the only dog – Top Dog as he likes to think of it.  Markie is a love bug and enjoys being spoken to, sitting on a lap or up against you.  He chases a cat that runs from him but ignores another one.  Markie walks well on a leash and is well behaved when you pick him up to run in a store or stop at a stand, etc.  He isn’t into other dogs; he pretty much ignores them. He loves his person and those times when you can’t take him with you, he will be watching out from the window for your return. There is no adoption fee.

If you will welcome Markie into a loving home as part of your family, please call Marilyn between 8 AM and 8 PM at 517-304-6946.

Hi… my name is Anna.

Adopted June 6, 2015.

With my perpetual smile and sparkling personality, you wonder how I came to be abandoned at Anamax Park! Happily, the Sahuarita police found me before anything untoward happened, and now I’m here getting lots of love and assurances that “it was nothing I said!” They’re thinking I’ve got lots of Corgi in my genes (the short legs), but I suppose you might also think of me as a “mini-Golden,” as I’m just as outgoing and sweet as they are. Whatever — at 25 pounds and approximately 2 years of age, I’m going to be the best thing you could have done for yourself this summer!

Hi… my name is Buster.

Adopted December 6, 2014.

My family adopted me from TALGV when I was eight weeks old and although they loved me to pieces, I wasn’t getting along with the young kids that visited the house (but I was fine with “my own” kids), so I guess a new home is in my future. My people said that I’m loyal, faithful, very protective of my family, and well, just basically a real sweetheart. I’m about 15 months old now and have turned into an eye-catching mix of Corgi (check out the ears and feet) and Chihuahua (a real surprise if you see my baby pictures!). I have perfect house manners (I can use a doggie door and am crate trained), and love being part of the action, so I’m ready made for a home that will appreciate my attributes!

Arrived September 21, 2014.
