Sometimes being sweet and adorable isn’t enough to keep you safe. I was found alone and vulnerable at the Canoa Ranch Rest Stop—very scared, hungry, with an injured hip, abrasions and lacerations. Wow. Was that really me? Today, I’m a happy guy enjoying comfy, carefree days. The volunteers say I am friendly, get along with other dogs, and I’m very fond of my people friends, too. My wounds have healed and although my hip isn’t perfect, I get around just fine. And through it all, I’ve continued to be sweet and adorable—a fawn-colored, 2-year-old Terrier mix male, 22 pounds, for whom the best is surely yet to come. And I’m hoping here’s where you come into my story, adding what I still need most—love forever and a happily-ever-after home with you.
For someone who recently gave birth to 11 puppies—yes, 11 babies in one litter!—I’m now delightfully close to feeling carefree. My human family found homes for eight of my puppies, but they were moving and couldn’t keep the rest of us, so, thank goodness, there was room for us here. We arrived hungry and I was very thin, but we soon thrived on our “three squares.” At 42 pounds, I’m now svelte in a good way—a nice size for a 2-year-old female (whose “mama days” will soon be behind her). In the past, I played well with 14- and 15-year-old kids, and here at TALGV, I’m a sweet dog to my new friends, good on a leash, and eager to find someone to love forever. Will you please be my someone?
There once was a group of dogs who lived a hard knock life. I know because I was one of them. We had each other, but were never allowed in the house—no matter the weather. And even as puppies, we worked hard just to stay safe. Then, one magical day, our lives changed. Friendly, gentle people came to visit, brought us yummy treats, and helped us move. Today I live indoors, eat well, and sleep on a comfy bed. There’s a change in my heart, too, because now I dare to dream of my very own home—a place where people will want me to play, have fun, and share their happy, loving life. I’m a little shy but super sweet Heeler male, and you’ll become my forever hero the day you make me yours!
Please call TALGV (520-625-3170) and make arrangements to meet me soon. Kennels are open 10-2 every day.
If you’ve ever wondered why people love their Labs so much, my buddy Luke and I will be happy to show you. (If you’ve already known lovable Labs, that’s even better!) We’re friendly, eager to please, ready for fun, sympathetic when you’re tired or sad, loyal, and smart. And here at TALGV, because we’re each 13 years old, we also come with Free Vet Care for Life. Luke and I have shared a home our whole lives (we’re happy together except when eating) and always with the same person. Dad was really sad to leave us, but his new home already has as many dogs as the neighborhood allows. So here we are—two calm, mature, 62-pound males, one black and one yellow, both ready to love again. Will you let us love you?
