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!

Hi… my name is Jojo,

Adopted 10-22-16

You could say my middle name is “loyalty,” because that’s my strong suit. Indeed, when asked about my good qualities, the first thing my person said was that I’m “very loyal.” He was loyal to me, too; when he lost his job and couldn’t take care of me anymore—although sad to let me go after our 4 years together—he brought me here for the chance at a new home. He said I got along with his cat, but didn’t care for men (although my person is a man). I’m currently in foster care, so please call ahead and we’ll set up a date to meet. Just ask for the handsome 5-year-old male with the sleek black coat and remarkable ears, who’s been dreaming of being in a happy forever home with you!

Arrived 7-26-16.

Hi… my name is Trefor.

Adopted January 23, 2016

I used to live where there were just too many dogs in one place. Now, I’m comfy at TALGV and grateful for the great care, but still dreaming of a home of my own. The best part of the dream is a person or family, someone I’ll share every day with—probably someone like you. I’ll do my part in our happy home, being the good dog who knows good behavior, and also a quick learner ready to learn lots more. I’m great on a leash and love the big outdoors, so walks will be fun for us, too. Best of all, I’ll build my world around you, making it my job to please you every day. I’m a 4-year-old male SharPei/Hound mix, 51 pounds, and am really hoping you come take me home today.

Hi… my name is Mona.

Adopted June 7, 2015

My sister, Lisa, and I appeared one day in the yard of a home in Sahuarita Heights and stayed around to play with the resident Shih Tzu and the tribe of kids who lived there. The owners fed us outside while they tried to find our owner, but when that didn’t happen after two weeks, decided that we needed more “exposure” to potential adopters so we could find new homes. They said that we were beautiful, playful, happy youngsters who need a good-sized yard and lots of attention, play time, and someone with “puppy-patience.” They’re calling us Whippet mixes, but we have “Shar-Pei-like” ears, so who knows? I’m just a happy amalgam of something! All you need to know is that I’m cute, sweet, and, best of all, (since Lisa has been adopted) I am still available!
