Hi… my name is Luna (aka Lariat),

Adopted 8-14-19

“Is she always this good?” People asked that about me when foster mom and I went walking in the park. In reply, she sang my praises: “Easy to care for…walks well on a leash…loves going on walks and riding in the car…barks rarely and only when necessary.” I also enjoy watching what’s happening in the kitchen, playing with toys (especially chasing my red ball), and sitting with my person in the recliner to watch TV. (I’m a small-medium size at about 35 pounds.) I’ve had ear surgery, so need someone who understands the fear/touching issues connected with that—probably a person who’s had dogs; someone I could learn to trust. I’ll love that person so much. So if you’re seeking a companion who’s quiet, adorable, and loving (housetrained, too), I’m the one for you!

Hi… my name is Ginger,
Adopted April 2, 2016

When I was just 3 months old, my mom left me in a wash. Before anything worse could happen, some humans found me and eventually brought me to TALGV. While with them, they said, I enjoyed playing with children and got along with cats, but was slow to warm up to men. I’m 22.8 pounds, a 5-month-old female Sharpei mix with a smooth tan coat and a sweet, quiet disposition. For fun, my favorite things are playing in water, playing with dogs I know and like, and cuddling with gentle people. I’m still very shy at first, but making progress with my patient friends, so if you could love a bashful but extraordinary pup like me and help me become the wonderful grownup dog I’m bound to be, please come meet me today.

DONUT is a very smart, social, and sweet 60-pound 4-year-old Sharpei mix who needs a new home as her owners are moving out of the area and can’t take her. She is housebroken, asks to go out and uses a doggy door. Donut is crate trained, walks nicely on leash, and knows the commands “sit,” “stay,” and “shake.” She loves being with her people and does best with calm dogs of medium or large size. She is spayed, is up to date with shots, and medical records are available. There is no adoption fee for this loving girl. If you will welcome Donut into your home as part of your family, please call Jennifer between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-780-0313.

Hi… my name is Louise,

Adopted March 2, 2016

A busy parking lot is a dangerous place for dogs, so my buddy, Thelma, and I were super grateful to be given a ride away from there. Now that we’re here, safe and sound, I’m enjoying meeting lots of new people. I’m a Sharpei mix female and, yes, some people are drawn to that special Sharpei look, but I like to think my biggest asset is my own unique personality. I’m a delightful 2-year-old who’s calm and attentive, genuinely interested in making friends; if you’re kind to me, I’ll meet you more than halfway. A medium size, I’m a good fit for most households, and since my breed is known for devotion to their humans, I’d be your loyal and loving companion for life. May we please start our own special life together today!

Hi… my name is Maddie.

Adopted November 28, 2014.

It’s always sad when a dog loses its home, but mine was so full of fun-loving kids (five of them ranging in age from 7 months to 5 years!) that I miss everyone doubly. A friend gave me to my family a year ago, and as the months passed, it became obvious that both mom and dad had serious allergies, which, unfortunately, included me. When I first arrived here I was really despondent over my loss, but the volunteers are being SO extra-sweet to me that I’m coming out of my shell more each day. I’m a warm and huggable Shar Pei and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix girl, who would love to find another dynamic family (preferably with a big yard!) that can help me “forget all my cares and woe”!

Adopted offsite October 16, 2014.

MAISON is a 4 ½-year-old handsome Teddy Bear Shar-Pei who needs a new home with a family that has more time for him. He is good with all children but is happiest with kids 8 years or older who will give him lots of love and attention. Maison is fully housebroken (asks to go out), is crate- and leash-trained, and knows sit, lay down, go to bed. He is a couch potato at home but enjoys the dog park. Cats are unknown. He weighs a healthy 60 pounds and has been neutered but does need to be updated on his shots. There is no adoption fee. If you will welcome Maison into a loving home as part of your family, please call Janie between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-891-3700.

Hi… my name is Sasha Jo.

Adopted October 3, 2014.

My family rescued me from a shelter over five years ago, but now they’re moving into an apartment and can’t take me with them. They had nothing but wonderful things to say about me, like I’m an easy rider with a calm temperament, like toys, to sit in the sun, and am a very well-mannered girl who is good in the house, a great watch dog, and LOVE belly rubs. What more could you want in a gal? I’m a beautiful shepherd/Shar Pei mix (note the ears!), who got along fine with “my” 8-year-old grandchild and other animals. I know a few basic commands (but am eager to learn more if you have the inclination!), know what “no” means, and well, I’m practically perfect if I do say so myself! Come find out for yourself!

Arrived August 30, 2014.

Hi… my name is Bonnie.

Adopted December 28, 2014.

So you say you like “interesting” dogs? Well, I’m guessing they don’t get much more eye-catching than me! I’ve definitely got Shar Pei ears going on, along with a bit of a husky mask and shepherd body. Wouldn’t it be fascinating if they always did DNA tests on canines so you’d know? In any case, I’m one lovely girl who was found as a stray (sadly, that’s a pretty big club), but even though I was pretty frightened when I arrived, the volunteers say that I now get along great with people, walk well on a leash, and am using my doggie door like a trooper. They think I’m a “few” years old, and I weigh about 30 pounds, so with just a bit of education, I’ll be a well-behaved and loyal friend.
