Hi… my name is Amanda,

Adopted 1-23-20

I was considering stopping in at the Mini Market in Amado to check out their dog food, but before I could act on it, I was rescued. At TALGV I became acquainted with many loving people. After some training and a field trip, it was reported that I was a good houseguest and I appear to be housebroken. Even though I don’t actually ask, I wait until I am taken out. After a while, I walked pretty well on a leash, but I’m still learning. If I jump up or do something I shouldn’t, I can be easily corrected with “no” or “leave it.” I would love to be a member of an active, loving family. I’m waiting for the right fit. Are you looking for me?

Hi… my name is Marc (aka Mork),

I’m an energetic boy that loves to play, whether it’s with someone or alone. After I exercise, and burn off my excess energy, I settle down. Since I’m so rambunctious, I would probably do better in a home without small children. In class I’m learning basic obedience training, and my TALGV handler is teaching me how to walk properly on a leash. She says I’m very sweet, quick to learn, and always ready to please. I’ve had so many changes in my life that it is sometimes confusing, and I would really love to have a stable home with a loving, patient person. I’m certain when you meet me you will see what an impressive boy I am. If you’re willing to make me part of your family and routine, I’m ready to go.

Hi… my name is Buddy,

Comes with post-adoption support.

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.

Hi… my name is Dulce,

Adopted 12-28-19

The definition of ‘dulce’ is sweet and that is how my previous owner described me. She also mentioned that I have good house manners, walk well on a leash, and know some of the basic commands. I’m here because of changes in the home where I lived for six months. During that time I had a close relationship with their other dog and we loved to run and play together. Here at TALGV, I’ve made a good impression on the volunteers. When we meet, I may seem a little bashful at first, but it doesn’t take much to win me over and then you’ll see I’m full of energy! I have a playful, affectionate nature and enjoy my daily walks. If that’s what you are interested in, then I’m ready to go home with you.

Hi… my name is Strawberry,

Adopted 11-16-19

I’m one of 4 puppies who spent our first 5 months growing up in a back yard. We were fed and looked after but didn’t have much people contact. As we got bigger and were eating more, we were brought to TALGV so we could become socialized with people and find forever homes. On our first day we were so skittish that we didn’t want to be touched. We huddled together and were given our space. It has not taken long to learn that the company of people is about as good as food! We’re still cautious, but warming up. I look like a mix of black Labrador and Hound, but who knows? What really matters is I’m full of potential to be just the canine companion you’re looking for!

Hi… my name is Todd,

Adopted 1-3-20

A kind person brought me to TALGV. No one knows for sure what I’ve been through, but they say I have come a long way in a month. In the past I learned to temper my curiosity with caution. A three-day retreat with some nice foster parents helped my confidence. They said the microwave and other loud things made me nervous, but I had fun exploring their house and really liked the other doggie in the mirror. They put my nice soft bed in front of the mirror and that made me feel safe. I didn’t make any messes in the house, and I really enjoyed the long walks on the leash, especially with confident doggie friends. I’m starting to relax a bit, and the treats and chin rubs are pretty nice, too. I’m looking for a special someone who will help me build my confidence. My foster parents think I would do well with a confident dog in the home to show me how things should be.
