Hi… my name is Snookie,

Adopted 5-8-17

You could say my daughter, Pookie, and I arrived here via a winding road. Along the way, there was a divorce, a move, and a friend who couldn’t keep us. Fortunately, we’re both calm and easy-going; we took these changes in our stride. I’m 5 years old, a compact medium size at 50 pounds, with a tan coat and the remarkable Shar Pei wrinkles and adorable face. (Pookie and I’ve literally stopped traffic here at TALGV because people wanted to see us up close, and you want to know a secret: I kinda love that!) I’m friendly, good on a leash, and happy to be absolutely loyal to the person who loves me back. If that could be you, let’s meet soon because if you think I’m special, I think you’re even more so!

Hi… my name is Pookie,

Adopted 5-8-17

You could say my mom, Snookie, and I arrived here via a winding road. Along the way, there was a divorce, a move, and a friend who couldn’t keep us. Fortunately, we’re both calm and easy-going; we took these changes in our stride. I’m 2-1/2 years old, a compact medium size at 45 pounds, with a chocolate brown coat and the remarkable Shar Pei wrinkles and adorable face. (Mom and I’ve literally stopped traffic here at TALGV because people wanted to see us up close, and you want to know a secret: I kinda love that!) I’m friendly, good on a leash, and have inherited my mother’s sweet disposition. If you think I’m special, I think you’re even more so, and will be happy being your loyal companion for a long time to come!

Hi… my name is Mambo,

Adopted 2-20-17

My siblings and I are at TALGV because we were in a place where there were too many dogs, so we’re loving everyone who makes us feel welcome here. Now we’re having a world of fun playing puppy games, receiving lots of puppy love, and doing goofy puppy things like falling all over ourselves. Some people even want to take one of us home, which is the most exciting thing ever in our little lives! I’m one of the boys, white with brown circles, arriving at 12.6 pounds and growing! Of course, I’ve lots to learn, so I need a home where there’s an abundance of time, patience, and love. In return, I’ll look up to you, try to make you laugh every day, and love you forever. Am I the one for you?

Hi… my name is Merengue,

Adopted 2-19-17

My siblings and I were in a place where there were too many dogs, so we’re loving everyone who’s making us feel welcome here—a great spot for having a world of fun playing puppy games, receiving lots of puppy love, and doing goofy puppy things like falling all over ourselves. Some people even want to take one of us home, which is the most exciting thing ever in our little lives! I’m one of the girls, a beauty with a soft tan coat, 9.2 pounds on arrival and growing! Of course, I’ve lots to learn, so I need a home where there’s an abundance of time, patience, and love. In return, I’ll look up to you, try to make you laugh every day, and love you forever. Am I the one for you?

Hi… my name is Watts,

Adopted 2-13-17

I’m such an optimistic, happy-go-lucky guy, I’ll even say that being a stray worked out okay for me. It was not a bowl of cherries—no home, family, or regular meals—but, lucky me, someone wonderful came to my rescue. They said I liked their kids (ages 9-12), but “no chickens!” Asked about my strengths, they said I was “smart, kind, dedicated to family,” with a “good attitude.” To those great qualities you can add that I know “sit” and played Frisbee with my finders! Of course, your opinion matters most, so I’d love to meet you. I’m an 18-month-old Shar Pei mix male, black and tan. My finders noticed a couple of scars, but my heart is still super friendly and I’d love to give it to you forever. Can we meet today?

Hi… my name is O’Riley (aka Riley),

Adopted 1-8-17

O’Riley comes with FREE Vet Care for Life.

I’ve been blessed to know that love between a person and a dog is a lasting thing. Before her recent passing, my person and I were together for 11 years, which was just plain wonderful for both of us. Her good friend saw how loyal I was to her and noted I’ve been good with someone who has physical challenges. People seem to appreciate my other qualities, too; I “ask” to go outside; I’m good in the house alone; leash trained; understand “sit,” “stay,” and “come;” and will “move” backwards for a treat! Plus, as an 11-year-old male, (71 pounds), I come with Free Vet Care for Life! Please come visit me soon, and you might find that the best part of me—my big, gentle, loving heart—is a perfect match with yours.

Hi… my name is Sammy,

Adopted with Suki 11-7-16

My best friend, Suki, and I were left without a home when our person moved away. Thank goodness, we have each other, and who knows? Could be the best is yet to come for us! Granted, we’re not spring chickens, but being mature can be a very good thing. I’m a 9-year-old Lab/Shar-Pei mix male, 79 pounds, with a tan and white coat. I’ve lots of loves in life—according to my former family, I love kids, cats, cuddling, playing with Suki, and, yes, people—I’m an affectionate guy. They said I was gentle with the kids (all ages visited) and got along with cats, horses and mules (the mules had no comment). Suki and I would like to stay together and if that’s okay in your home, we’ll double the love for you.

Hi… my name is Riley,

Adopted 11-12-16

When I was lost, I found some fun kids who let me hang out with them. I followed them around their neighborhood until I met their mom, who was real nice to me. When she couldn’t find my owners, she brought me here, and I was adopted pretty quickly. Unfortunately, it turned out that wasn’t a perfect fit and so I’m back, putting my best paw forward in the hope that someone wonderful will notice me. People say I’m strikingly handsome—a tan and white Shar-Pei mix male, about 42 pounds and just 15 months old—but I especially like it when they say what a great dog I am, friendly, attentive and smart. If that sounds good to you, let me show you it’s true. Who knows? We could be best buddies forever!
