Three years ago, I was lost and a family took me in. I’m grateful to them for those good years, but now some new issues, including my owner’s need to have surgery, mean I must go to a new home. Could I be so lucky as to once again find someone who’ll play fetch with me, let me play in the water, and sleep next to their bed? Volunteers here say yes because there are lots of wonderful people who’d love a great dog companion like me. I’m a charming 6-year-old Lab Retriever mix female with a beautiful red coat, who knows “come,” “fetch,” and loves to play. My TALGV friends are helping me address my overweight issue, and I’m focused on a happy today, hoping this is the day you’ll make me yours!
BLUE is a handsome 1 ½-year-old, 75-pound, Catahoula Leopard/retreiver mix with a sweet personality. He was rescued by owner who has several pets already. He is up to date on shots and has been neutered courtesy of TALGV. Currently he Is an inside/outside dog who loves to play fetch and is being obedience trained. Blue is great with kids, but please no cats or small dogs. This wonderful dog wants only to please his new family. There is no adoption fee. If you will welcome Blue into a loving home as part of your family, please call Helen between 7 AM and 8 PM at 520-373-2790.
I lived with my family for two months after I was found in the yard of a home in Rancho Sahaurita. Everyone (dogs, cats, and three little kids) was ecstatic to have me around because I was a gentle and affectionate girl who loved to play. Unfortunately, they had to move to a place where pets weren’t allowed, so they had to give me up (but their loss will be your gain!). They said that I know “sit” really well (that’s a snap, especially when you have a treat in your hand!), and they were sure that I’d easily learn lots of other things because I’m smart and eager to please. I’m about 4 years old, weigh 18 pounds, and am a beautiful “foxy” mix of Pomeranian and maybe retriever. I’m vivacious and full of energy, so I’m looking for a family that will indulge me in playtime, but still give me the education I need.
My pal, Dusk, and I were abandoned in early February so my origin is a mystery, but now that I’m here the volunteers are discovering more about my personality every day. I’m still a little shy (I had to board at a local kennel for a while, so didn’t get a lot of one-on-one time), but I’m basically a friendly gal who walks “pretty well” on a leash (the more often I go out, the better I get!), and I really like people a lot when I get to know them. I’m a fluffy, mahogany-colored, Retriever/Chow mix girl, and I’m sure if I had a nice big yard and kids (or another dog pal) to play with, I’d become the loving companion I was meant to be. If you’d give me a chance, I’d be forever grateful.
I only spent three days with my rescuers (who found me at the Sahuarita Baptist church, hence my name!), but in that time they said that I was a friendly girl who was gentle and tolerant with their kids, but that I preferred human company over the resident dogs. Apparently I “slept a lot,” but that might just be because I’d probably been living outside for a while since I’ve got a few scars to attest to my less-than-perfect-so-far life. At my age, I may have seen more “action” than many dogs twice that age. I’m a small and pretty, retriever mix, and I’m absolutely positive that if you give me a safe, loving home, you’ll wonder what you ever did without me — and I’ll think I won the doggie lottery with you in my life! C’mon, make that happen for both of us!
