Hi… my name is Daisy,

Adopted 3-7-20

Note: Bio needs revision.

My former person and I had a sweet life together. She loved me for being “affectionate, loyal, a great lap dog,” and I loved how she brushed me and rubbed my belly. But she’s moved many states away to a home with very young children and another dog, and since I wasn’t good with the toddlers and prefer to be the only canine, she left me here. That was tough; I’m shy and didn’t know what to expect. But I’m also active, smart, and love going for walks, so things are better now. Plus, you might like to know I have good indoor manners, “ask” to go outside, and give kisses if you like. I could be great company at home if you’ll give me the chance.

Hi… my name is Nalla (aka Prickly Pear),

Adopted 3-20-20

Wouldn’t you love a beautiful girl with an almost golden palomino colored coat, big ears, and gorgeous eyes? My owner did until her health situation changed and I had to come back to TALGV with my brother, Ryder. I’m a laid back young lady who lays around with my feet daintily crossed…I’m moderately active. I’m fairly relaxed in this new place, and I don’t bark very much. I’m just curious about the world around me. They say I’m skittish and anxious, but I think maybe I’m just lacking confidence. Having another confident dog around would help me face things in life that I have not been exposed to. I would love to have a furever home, probably with a companion, where I can learn all the fun parts about being a family. Won’t you come and meet me?

Hi… my name is Ryder (aka Saguaro),

When my owner’s health situation changed I had to come back to TALGV with my sister, Nalla. I’m a laid-back blonde, young boy. I’m fairly relaxed in this new place and mildly curious about things going on around me. They say I’m skittish and anxious, but I think maybe I’m just lacking confidence. I’m easy going around other dogs, and I even relish having another confident dog near me to show me the ropes on how to be a great friend and companion. Being young, I have a lot to learn about walking on a leash and basic obedience. I just need a loving and patient person to help me out of my shyness. Won’t you come meet me?

Hi… my name is Kringle,

Adopted 3-3-20

I can’t remember what happened, but one day my sister and I woke up to find ourselves alone in an empty house. Thank goodness a kind lady took us in and cared for us until we were 8 weeks old, and then we were brought to TALGV. Shortly afterwards I was adopted, but two months later I’m back. I’m a 4-month-old Shepherd mix boy, and I guess I was too much puppy that loved to play with too many things that were not mine. Everyone here talks about something called basic obedience training and how it helps pups, like me, learn how to behave. Please stop by and say hello, and I hope you are willing to be patient and train me so you won’t want to say good-bye.

Hi… my name is Sadie,

Adopted 2-28-20

I was brought to TALGV by a neighbor who discovered I’d been abandoned in my yard after my “Dad” left. I’m learning to trust again. I’m a 3-year-old medium-size female Shepherd mix who will warm up to you after a quiet, calm introduction. If you look me straight in the eye at first or talk loud, I’ll bark and growl to make you go away. But when I feel safe, I’ll bring you my toy and sit in your lap, happy to make friends. I’m learning to walk on leash and generally don’t bark at other dogs. People say it’s hard not to stare at me because I’m “stunning.” Once you take me home, you can look at me all you want, and I’ll smile back at you with all the love in my heart.

Hi… my name is Twilight,

My sister, Midnight, and I were brought here by relatives after our “Mom” passed away. They couldn’t keep us, but TALGV was the best place they could think of. I’m a 7 ½-year-old female Lab/Shepherd mix that is gentle and docile but also quite shy. It takes us both a while to warm up to strangers. After spending time with other animals and four children ages 2-8 years old and then coming here, we’re learning how to adjust to new surroundings. With the patient volunteers here and all the attention we get, I believe we are making progress. Naturally visitors are welcome. Please consider taking a look; you might like what you see.

Hi… my name is Midnight,

My sister, Twilight, and I were staying with relatives after our “Mom” passed away. Sadly they couldn’t keep us, so they did the best thing they could and brought us to TALGV. I’m a 7 ½- year-old Lab/ Shepherd mix girl that is docile, gentle and tolerant. When we arrived here it became obvious that we were both shy. It takes us a while to warm up to people. We have been around other animals and four children ages 2-8 years old. The patient volunteers here have been spending time with us to help us come out of our shells. My sister is a little more outgoing than me, but I also love to get attention. I think we are making great progress. Please come and see for yourself.

Hi… my name is Dooby (aka Scooby),

Adopted 2-16-20

Here I am, a spunky, young fellow with a lot of energy. In other words, I’m still a pup. The family I lived with for a short time was unable to care for me and brought me to TALGV. They did say I know how to use a doggy door and walk on a leash. They also they mentioned I’m not into sharing food or toys but, at my age, with some basic obedience training, along with a lot of love and patience, I could learn. I’m a compact little Shepherd mix that is excited to meet new people, and I would appreciate it if you could please come in and meet ME. Who knows, when the introductions are over, maybe we could leave together.

Hi… my name is Kira,

I first arrived at TALGV after I was found near Santa Cruz Valley Hospital. Around 2 weeks ago I was adopted and went to live with a family who already had a resident dog, a 14-year-old male. It could be I wanted to get his attention, but by my being a little too pushy, we just didn’t get along. Then I was returned, along with compliments from my previous owner. It was pointed out that I’m very friendly and love to be petted and cuddled. I also love my walks, playing fetch, my chew toys, and of course….treats. I may use the doggie door and can sit, but I obviously need further behavior training to complete my education. If you have the time and patience and you’re looking for love, look no further; I’m here!

Hi… my name is Eva,

Has earned her Canine Good Citizen certificate.

Originally, I was found running down Sahuarita Road, and since then my life has been a whirlwind. Everyone who has known me says that I am a playful, sweet and gentle girl who loves to be around people, including children. They have also commented on how intelligent I am and willing to learn (especially if there are treats involved). Not to brag, I was awarded my Canine Good Citizen Certificate and still know my basic obedience commands. Now, just between you and me, I do NOT like to be left alone! I understand that my trainers are going to work on that. Meantime, I’ll be here waiting for that special someone who was made just for me. When you’re in the neighborhood, please pop in and take a peek.
