OLIVER is a handsome, smart, and friendly 3-year-old, 50-pound Border Collie mix that needs a new home with someone who is home most of the time. He loves people, but has separation anxiety if left home alone so must be in a strong kennel if owner needs to be away for an extended period. He is good with other dogs, cats, and children. Oliver is micro-chipped, neutered, and shots are up to date. He is housebroken, but he only will potty on his twice-a-day walk. He loves to run and, if left unattended, would jump over a 5-foot wall. He is very smart and would love to have additional training.
There is no adoption fee for this special guy. If you would welcome Oliver into a loving home as part of your family, please call Tammy between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-312-5044.

I used to live outside, tied up, and so just being free in my run here is nice. My former person doesn’t have room for me now, but she left me with lots of compliments, saying I’m a very loyal dog, gentle and playful—pretty good at catching a ball, if I say so myself—got along with other animals, and know commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “down.” Plus, I’m housebroken—good to know, and has been true here at TALGV, too. I’m a Hound mix male, white with a tan eye patch, who wants you to know one special thing: I don’t need a fancy place. I just need a place called home, and if you’re my person, home will be wherever you are. May we please be happy together?
From where I sit (or stand, jog or jump!), life is an adventure to be explored and enjoyed. I’m sure that some day I’ll be a long-term couch potato, and I know how that feels; I tucker out at some point every day, but I’m usually a high-spirited guy. My boundless energy makes me a great pal for activities like playing, walking, hiking, jogging–I’m your guy for fun! And my endearing silly streak is good for laughs along the way. The woman who found me discovered that I know commands like sit, paw, and lay down, but I had a weakness—I went after chickens, so please be mindful of that if you have poultry. Otherwise, I’m raring to go as your guy for happy trails and good times ahead for you and me.
Thanks for looking at my pictures. My biography is under construction. Please stop back again to read about me or… even better… call TALGV (520-625-3170) to arrange to meet me soon. Kennels are open 10-2 every day.
