Hi… my name is Cowboy,

Adopted 10-24-23

My mom is moving to Europe and she wanted to make sure I’d find the perfect new home. I’m a sweet, young, male Greyhound/Lab mix who’s great with other dogs and children ages 8-16 years, but not very small children. I’m somewhat cautious with new visitors and don’t know about cats! I’m very quiet and relaxed and behave well in the house. I’m crate trained and spend time there when left alone. By ringing a bell, I alert you to when I need to go out, and I can use a doggie door. I’m leash trained and know the commands “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “shake.” I was shy when I arrived, but now I know I’m safe with friends, who are sharing their loving care…until you take me home.

Hi… my name is Sadie,

I’m a delightful blend of Greyhound, Canary Corso, and Cur all wrapped into one gentle, intelligent, and affectionate girl…ME! I walk well on a leash and know the commands “sit” and “down.” In the past I’ve gotten along well with other dogs and children, and I love to cuddle. I’m a natural runner but should never be off-leash in unsecured areas, because I’ll chase any small animals I see, like bunnies, cats, etc. There should be NO small pets in the home! I’ve been known to go under (or over) a six foot enclosure to visit neighbors or just to explore, so please don’t leave me outside alone! If you can supply this wannabe couch potato with mental stimulation, take me on regular walks, and love me unconditionally, I’ll be yours forever!

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Bella Sue,

Adopted 9-2-17

Mom and Dad adopted me three years ago, back when I was just a pup. Since then I’ve learned some important things—how to walk on a leash, “ask” to go outside, follow commands—and recently I learned another lesson: Life can change suddenly. My dad died, and now mom is moving and can’t take care of me anymore. So I came here a little lonely and bashful, but kindness has really brightened my days. The volunteers say I’m elegant with lots of charm (sometimes they let me give them kisses), and although I’m tall (about 64 pounds), my former owner said I wasn’t a jumper, and can be good with kids. I’m a sweet and beautiful black Lab/Heeler/Greyhound mix female, who’d love to go home with you and be happy together forever.

Hi… my name is Sassy,

Adopted 10-30-16

My motto is “let’s have fun every day!” The woman who found me said that at her house I loved to play with other dogs, loved chew toys, loved treats, and I agree—play, toys, treats, they’re all good! But my finder has 10 other dogs and cats, so she sadly let me come to TALGV. Happily, the volunteers here like me, too; they say I’m “very, very sweet,” (and you know they extra-super mean it when they say “very” twice). At just 5 months old, I’m continuing to learn things good dogs know, and my training should go well since I’m what people call “real smart.” Can’t hurt that I’m real loveable, too! I’m a slender, 27 pound brindle and white beauty, whose happiest day yet will be when you make me yours.

Hi… my name is Lexi,

Adopted April 10, 2016

I loved the quiet, peaceful life I shared with my owner. Thanks to her kindness, I put a history of abuse behind me. But on a very sad day, I lost her. After my owner’s death, I lived with her daughter’s family, including 6 children, 4 dogs, 2 goats, a pig, a mule, and 5 caged rabbits. Honestly, I was overwhelmed. We’ve all agreed I should find a more calm and stable home, one where a mild-mannered, gentle soul like me fits in naturally. I’m a 5-year-old female, a beautiful brindle Boxer/Greyhound mix, about 57 pounds, who walks nicely on leash and knows “sit,” “stay,” “down,” and how to give kisses. My favorite things include playing in water and cuddling. Please say today we’ll start sharing the good life—contented, loving, and together forever.

Hi… my name is Nala,

Adopted April 2, 2016

I’m came here, along with my dog buddy, Pearl, because our people moved to one of those “no pets allowed” apartments. It’s tough being left behind, especially when you’ve done nothing wrong, but we’re okay. Like many dogs, we’re quite capable of making the best of today, staying open to new friends and fun. I’m a 2-1/2-year-old black Greyhound/Labrador mix female, 59 pounds, sleek and beautiful. Some say I’m elegant looking, which is nice, but I expect you’ll care more about my sweet nature and calm temperament. I walk well on a leash, have good house manners, obey “sit” and “paw,” and I’m generally polite to people. Best of all, I’m an easy-going companion, charming and loving, who’ll be ever so grateful for a home where I’ll be loved forever. Could that be with you?

Hi… my name is Chrissy.

Adopted February 14, 2016

Things changed in my once-happy home and my people can no longer give me the attention I need. We’re hoping someone else will have more time to share and we can be happy together. I’m already have some important dog lessons down pat; I know “sit,” “come,” “stop barking,” and “lay down.” Since they call me a Greyhound/Mastiff mix, you won’t be surprised to know that I like to run—sometimes very fast. I also like to play with squeaky toys. It’s been tough for me to leave the only home I remember, but I did get into mischief when left alone so much and so I need a good friend. I’m a beautiful brindle female, and if you have the time and patience, I can be your faithful companion.

Hi… my name is Lily.

The people who found me in the desert already had a mastiff, a cattle dog, a pointer, a Shar-Pei, and a Lab — so no surprise that they couldn’t keep me, too! They lived in Patagonia — and their place had lots of room to roam — but adding another dog to the mix of five (pretty big ones!) would have been an awful lot to ask! They did keep me for two weeks though, and said that I was good with all the other dogs, have a very sweet temperament, am a good swimmer, love to play outside, and am a big, smart, obedient girl. I’m a striking, brindle-colored greyhound and Great Dane mix and will be a wonderful addition to any family. I’d love have another canine buddy to romp with (they said I NEED to play!), but if it’s just you and me, that would probably work for me, too!
