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!

Hi… my name is Dottie.

Adopted July 26, 2015

When I was found running on Sahuarita and Colossal Cave Road, I wasn’t there for the exercise! I was a puppy alone in a great big world. On 7/7, a lucky day for me, my kind rescuer stopped and picked me up.   I’m a 27-pound Pointer mix and only about 6 months old, so I’d say I’m the perfect age: Young enough to be adorable and old enough to be ready to learn. The humans here at TALGV think I’m lots of fun—a sweet young girl who is playful and has already peacefully shared a place with another young dog.   I’m hoping you like my distinctive brindle and white coat, and my eager-to-please personality. If you visit me and we like each other, maybe that will be my luckiest day ever!

Hi… my name is Cane.

Adopted July 26, 2015

Cane has earned/received his American Kennel Club (AKC)  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.

My well-meaning family rescued me when I was three months old, but since they’d never had a dog before, raising a puppy was a lot more than they could handle and after six months finally decided I needed a more structured home where I could get consistent training and lots of attention. Well, I’m SO happy to report that now that I’ve been at TALGV for nine months that has happened in spades! I have been trained to sit, down, wait, will roll over for a treat, and have earned my Canine Good Citizen award — WAY more than just your run-of-the-mill obedience certificate! I’m a polite 18-month-old Pointer/Staffie mix boy who totally ADORES kids, and I just know that I’m going to be the loyal and loving companion you’ve always fancied.

Arrived September 30, 2014.
