Hi… my name is Patches,

Adopted 7-13-19

Black/White spotted pointer, who can “point” you in the right direction. If you are looking for energy, youth, and friendliness, look no further. All signs “point” to me. I am not only eye-catching, but a great greeter. I welcome you with open paws and bright smiling teeth. I was found in a Green Valley neighborhood so you could say I’m from “the hood,” but don’t let my boyish black/white spotted exterior fool you. With much still left to learn, I hope to make growing with you an amazing experience. One you will never forget since my good looks caught you. If one meeting makes you love me, imagine what many years can bring. Not just for you, but also for me. With my youth I get to learn and live; I hope it’s with you.

Hi… my name is Rukus,

Adopted 2-3-18

Rukus has earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

If you love dogs (and I’m guessing you do), you understand the heartache of being what’s called an “unwanted” dog. It wasn’t about me, really—my person loved me. She got me as a puppy, said I grew up to be “wonderful,” and even liked my kisses. But she couldn’t take me with her when she moved to Phoenix; her family here wouldn’t take me, and her landlord wanted me gone yesterday. So I was living outside, experiencing long and lonely days, when suddenly, I came here. What a difference! Now I’m in out of the weather, have great company, walk with people every day, and I am wanted here; they call me “a sweetheart.” I’m a 7-year-old female, 44 pounds, and oh- so-ready to love you forever if you take me home.

Hi… my name is Harley,

Adopted 4-7-18

It’s in my nature to be happy with people—to let you know I’m happy to see you, wagging my tail so energetically that my whole body wiggles! My former person reported that on her observation, I was great with children and cats, too. But I didn’t get along with other dogs, including the dog that lived with her. Indeed, I probably need to be an only dog. And as such, I’ll be a sweet, playful dog, who’s housebroken, knows important commands, is good at home when you’re gone, and very friendly with people. I’m a 2-year-old Pointer mix female, 59 pounds, tall and slender with a short coat that’s white with cool black markings. If you’ll be my person, my family, I’ll always try to make you as happy as you make me!

Hi… my name is David,

Adopted 1-21-18

I was found near Green Valley Hospital, but the kind of care I needed wasn’t medical. Turned out, I’d been given away when my person moved out of state and then not kept. But you know what? I’m only 1 year old, so a disappointing beginning is only that—my happy story can start now. Granted, for you, choosing a dog can get complicated if you’re considering size, gender, age, even coat and color. For me, though, it’s simple—I just want a kind someone who appreciates my good qualities and will let me love them forever. I’m a Pointer/Staffie mix male, distinctive looking with my friendly face, and my black and white speckled coat, and I’d love to meet you, because I think once together, we’ll want to share all our happy tomorrows.

Hi… my name is Oliver,

Adopted 3-20-17

On a cold and rainy day, my finders discovered me at their front door. Although they couldn’t keep me—they already have 2 dogs and 6 cats—we became acquainted and, wow, did they have good things to say about me! “Very adaptable, quick learner, affectionate, loves humans, fine with cats and dogs (actually somewhat intimidated by cats), wants to play and run.” Asked what a potential adopter should know, they said that I “will be a wonderful companion, especially for an active person/family.” And you know what? The caregivers here feel exactly the same way! They add that I’m shy, very sweet, and handsome—a black and white 1-year-old male—and I’m grateful for all those kind words. Best of all, I believe someone wonderful will soon say to me: Let’s go home!

Hi… my name is Frankie,

Adopted 11-28-16

Hiking alone can be fun, but when I was found on a hiking trail, I was lost! My rescuers tried to find my owners, but to no avail. Sadly, their lease forbid them from keeping me, so even though I was a good family dog, gentle and tolerant with children (ages 6, 7, 15 and 18), I had to move on. Of course, my dream is that there is another person or family who’ll find me here. I’m 1-1/2 years old and still have some things to learn, but am already exceptionally good at loving people! I’m a Pointer/Hound mix female, 40 pounds, white with tan markings. I’m shy at first, but respond warmly to kindness and patience, and will reward you with devotion that lasts a lifetime! Won’t you please come visit me today?

Hi… my name is Cammie,

Adopted July 3, 2016

I’ve experienced some tough changes in my young life, but now my future looks bright! Previously, when living with a homeless person, I was struck by a car, crushing a back leg, which had to be amputated. Today, I’m well and looking for a new home! I enjoy taking long walks on my three legs, and foster mom says I’m really sweet and just want to please. I don’t chew up stuff, am totally house trained, know lots of doggie commands, and not scared by noise or lightening. Because I love people and other dogs, she thinks I’ll fit in nicely with a happy family or someone active looking for a great companion. I’m a beautiful chocolate and white 2-year-old Pointer female, and if you believe in happy endings, I’m the dog for you!

Hi… my name is Carla,

Adopted May 28, 2016

When I arrived at TALGV, someone started singing, “Hey there lonely girl…” They saw that I’d been lost, lonely, very scared, and in need of a friend. Weeks later, I was thrilled to be adopted. But then my owner began traveling extensively and I was returned to TALGV, where my friends welcomed me back. They’re ready to help me find a new home, hoping this time it’s the forever kind! I’m an active, playful female who enjoys car rides, toys, and quiet times, too—your gentle touch means so much. I’m young and slender, about 17 months and 40 pounds, white with brown markings, resembling a Canaan Dog and probably a Pointer mix. Best of all, I’ll be a devoted companion to the person I can love and trust, and I’m hoping that’s you.

Hi… my name is Pearl,

Adopted June 7, 2016

I’m a happy, enthusiastic girl despite losing my first home through no fault of my own.   My person wanted to keep me, but the landlord wouldn’t allow it. She still really wanted me, so I was kind of “on hold” for a while, but eventually it became clear that I must have a new place to live. So, here I am, putting on my best smile and looking forward to a happy future. I’m what people call “optimistic.” I’m also pretty smart, according to the volunteers, so with some human help, I could become a well-trained companion. I’m a 40 pounds female Pointer mix,  white with some cool tan markings (especially around my eyes). Please come for a visit and I’ll show you what a fun-loving friend I can be.

Hi… my name is Bella (Lee),

Adopted June 25, 2016

When I was adopted a couple of months ago, I really liked the people and they liked me, but they said I didn’t get along with their other animals (2 dogs and a cat), so I had to go. Sure, I was disappointed, but now I’m happy to say I’ve made lots of new friends here at TALGV. The volunteers say I’m friendly in an easy-going way, eager to be a pleasing companion, and just plain “good with people.” I’m a Pointer mix female, 3 years old and about 60 pounds, white with black spots and beautiful brindle markings. Commands I know well include “come” and “sit,” and I’m already leash trained. If you come visit me, you’ll make my day. Take me home with you, and I’ll be your faithful friend forever!
