Hi… my name is Sonya,

Adopted 10-7-20

I was found, along with my daughter, Morgan, roaming     around a local neighborhood. I must admit, living rough was really hard for two gentle girls like us. Morgan was even attacked by a cactus. Then we were both rescued. When I   first arrived at TALGV, I became the center of attention. I  guess my short Basset body and my Shar Pei face pulled on   the volunteers’ heartstrings. Naturally, I was lapping it up and spreading my attention and affection around. I know how to use the doggie door and I enjoy going for walks. I’m always happy to greet everyone who comes to visit. Just think, with just one phone call, you too could visit and your visit could very well become my forever home. See you soon!

Hi… my name is Morgan,

Adopted 10-9-20

A cactus is not my friend. I learned this lesson the hard way, while exploring a desert area with my mother, Sonya. When we were rescued, my first stop was a visit to the vet’s for cactus removal. After that uncomfortable experience we were re-united at TALGV, where I felt loved. I’m a friendly, fun-loving, gal that seems to like everyone. A quick bark or two to get your attention and I will roll over on my back so you can give me a belly rub. I can use the doggie door and I enjoy a walk with the volunteers. Please call for a visit so you can take in the whole package that is ME. You would be surprised how quickly these short little legs can carry me to YOU.

Fry

Hi… my name is Fry,

My friend and roommate, Loco, and I arrived at TALGV shortly after our Mom passed away. Now we’re in foster and my foster mom thinks I’m simply adorable. I’m a very affectionate and energetic girl who loves to run around and be chased. I’m house-trained and can be left for hours inside with no issues. I love to go on walks and car rides. I’ve been good with small dogs but need an introduction to any new dog on my own at first (without Loco). I love children, maybe too much, since I get very excited and will try to jump on them. I adore Loco and we really want to be together in our new home. Just think, with two you get twice the love. Please arrange a visit.

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet us soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Spencer,

Adopted 7-1-20

Have you ever longed to be accepted and loved for who you really are? I’ve been living at TALGV for almost 3 years and still hope for the day when someone special comes, really sees me, and says, “Spencer, you’re coming home!” People walk by my door, give me a glance, see a black dog with a graying muzzle, and pass me by. What they don’t see is that I know my commands and have good house manners, am friendly and give big kisses. I love walks, car rides, playing “find the treat,” learning new commands, and taking a nap. I do, however, have a problem I just can’t seem to shake. Do you? Mine is aversion to other dogs. I will treasure the person who is willing to shield me, adopt me as their only dog, and love me as I am.

Hi… my name is Pumpkin (aka Wednesday),

Adopted 2-22-20

When I arrived, my name was Wednesday, but I was so scared, I didn’t know my name from any other day of the week. The kind people here gave me a friendlier name – Pumpkin. I was injured by a new dog who came to live with my family. We had to be separated. She stayed. I came here. I used to have a big doggy “brother” who gave me confidence. It takes me a while to trust people, but when I do, I’m gentle and very loving. I’ve learned to enjoy walking on leash, especially with a male dog buddy. I’m also learning not to be afraid of going indoors. The volunteers have learned something from me: I’m highly motivated by chicken (the food, not the birds)! With time, patience, and preferably another “brother,” I’ll be a beloved addition to your family.

Hi… my name is Rocket,

Adopted 6-16-19

After just 3 months together, my person’s job took him out of state and I came here. That was a tough break because I’d been a good boy. I’d gotten along with the two cats at home, was gentle and tolerant with the kids there (ages 11 and 13), and stayed with a senior member of the family. With them, I was “very quiet” and “very attentive.” You know why? Because I’m happy in the company of people. Oh, I’m cautious with strangers, but once acquainted, we can be good buddies. I’m an 8-year-old who’s good on a leash and knows how to “ask” to go outside. With me, you’ll have a nice medium-size dog who’ll be loyal to you forever. Please let me show you what a good boy I can be!

Hi… my name is Molly,

Adopted 2-11-18

I came from a place with too many dogs, according to the landlord, and we were living outside. Perhaps it was that experience that made me a wee bit shy, but soon after arriving here, I started showing my true colors: friendly, sweet, and exceptionally kind. Here at TALGV, there was a shy dog needing to share a run with a dog who’d be good to her and so the volunteers chose me. We’ve gotten along beautifully and have lots of fun together because along with being good-natured, I’m playful, too. A nice size at 40 pounds, I’m a 2-year-old Lab/Shar-Pei mix female—a tan and white cutie with adorable ears (so they tell me), I’ll make a great addition to a happy, loving home. Let’s meet soon and see if we belong together!

Hi… my name is Bruce (aka Buddha),

Adopted 1-27-19

Things were great at home until my people realized how much they wanted to travel and how often they’d be boarding me to do that, leaving me sad and lonely. So a new home is best, a place to give and get lots of people attention—which I love! At home, I was crate-trained, gentle and tolerant with kids ages 8 and older, and “asked” to go outside. Here at TALGV, my trainer says I’ve come a long way in learning to be nonreactive to other dogs, I’m treat-motivated, love belly rubs and my chew toy, and would be best with someone who gives me direction in a positive manner because I’m still a puppy at heart! She also said I’m one in a million—adorable and smart—and all I want to be is yours!                                                                                    (Bio revised 8/6/18)
