I’m a laid back, loving buddy to any and all who want to be my friend. I was lost and sick, and my rescuer saved my life by bringing me here. I was very underweight, and the vet discovered I had untreated diabetes. I was so tired, but now with my insulin treatments and correct diet, I’m returning to health. Folks here say I’m an affectionate, quiet, easy-peasy guy who’s totally cooperative with my insulin injections. (I also come with post-adoption support to help offset the costs associated with my diabetes.) TALGV volunteers have given me a warm coat to wear and a soft bed to snuggle in. When they visit me, I gently greet them with gratitude. I often overhear them outside my kennel saying, “That Buddy is a love!” That’s what I have in spades for the person who sees I’m worthy of their care and takes me home.
Dogs like me, a 3-year-old German Shepherd female, have been called “a dog lover’s delight”—an encouraging thought in a year that’s sometimes been topsy-turvy. First, I was brought here with my canine buddy Lucas because our person developed serious health concerns. Then, after we’d been happily adopted again, our new people had landlord issues and couldn’t keep us. We were all sad, having quickly grown to love each other very much. Indeed, “very loving” was one way they described me, along with reporting I was gentle and tolerant with kids ages 7 through 18, leash-trained, and used the doggie door. These days, you can understand why a stable, loving home will mean so much to me, and if that can be with you, I’ll gladly be the happy dog by your side forever.

“You can’t buy love, but you can adopt it.” I’m living proof of that sign at the Animal League. I learned about love from my owner who adopted me as a puppy years ago, but now can’t take care of me anymore. Yes, it’s a surprising change for me—I loved being a great companion dog, but the volunteers assure me that I’m still that great dog. I ask to go outside, walk beautifully on a leash, and although a big guy—78 pounds—I’m an affectionate, sweet fellow who just wants you to be happy. A 9-1/2-year-old Shepherd mix, I’m a senior dog now and have Free Vet Care for Life. For me, the most exciting new thing in life will be you—the day you say we can go home together forever!

I’m a dog who loves most people, so I was truly sorry when my person’s health issues meant he couldn’t take care of us anymore. “Us” means my 19-pound Chihuahua buddy Lucy, and me, a 91-pound, 7-year-old white Shepherd mix male. Obviously, I get along with other dogs, but when I spent a week with some nice people recently, I chased their cats. That was the only thing they didn’t love about me. “This is a GREAT dog!” they said; “Very good natured and affectionate; great in the car; loves walks/exercise, calm in the house.” I’m also leash-trained, know some commands and how to “ask” to go outside. Good recommendations all, but I think my loving personality is my best quality. Won’t you please let me know if you could love me back?
I’m a happy, fun-loving dog who was especially lucky to be rescued. Found on I-19, I was lost and injured. My broken leg needed repair by a veterinarian. Maybe that help is why I love peopleso much! After that, I lived with my rescuer’s grandparents, but they think I need someone stronger—an active someone, who’d have fun with a lively, friendly dog like me. I’m crate-trained (please know I can jump a 5-foot wall), know some commands, and have been good with other dogs. I’ll gladly show you my favorite toys and maybe you’ll rub my ears, tummy or back—if so, we could be made for each other! I’m a 1-year-old black and tan female, 48 pounds, who more than anything wants the chance to be the dog you’ll cherish forever.
