Hi… my name is Eva,

Has earned her Canine Good Citizen certificate.

I was once a lost dog, all alone, running down Sahuarita Road. I’m still grateful to the kind person who stopped for me because that was the beginning of my new life. New friends here welcomed me, calling me charming and very playful. Some even mentioned beautiful. Soon, they were also praising me for being very smart, a quality that helped me earn my AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate, awarded for excellence in the behavior department. Oh, I know—people who want a little dog will not look twice at me. But someone will want me. Just like someone stopped for me on that lonely road, someone will want a charming, beautiful, smart Shepherd mix female. And if you’re that special person, I’ll always love you for being the one who took me home.

Hi… my name is Daisy,

Adopted 1-19-20

Like my brother, Izzy, I too am good looking, or should I say pretty? I thought our family was only going to be gone for a short time. That short time seemed like an eternity. Even though we were abandoned, we were, thankfully, taken care of. We even got used to children being around. As my brother says, we are “sweet but untrained,” and, oh yes, we would probably be happy to learn for someone who would be willing and patient. Did I mention we are pretty good on a leash, and that we both enjoy our daily walks together with friends? Now, three months later, we are once again in a different home. A good place for now, but we both want a home that means forever.

Hi… my name is Missy,

Adopted 12-11-19

When I was about a year old, I was having quite an adventure roaming the streets. Then someone found me and brought me to TALGV. I barely had time to settle in when two lovely ladies took me home. It was there I met the two resident cats and we all became one happy family. I learned the basic commands and how to walk well on a leash. My people said I am very affectionate and I am good at letting them know when I have to go out. I really enjoy playing in the yard, chasing my toys and being brushed, but I’m not a fan of sunglasses. I am also crate trained. Unfortunately, my family had to relocate and dogs were not permitted in their new home. Do you have a dog-friendly home?

Hi… my name is Snoop,

Adopted 12-1-19

Before coming here, my life changed and even became kind of scary! My former people moved away and left me alone in the yard with my canine buddy, King. (King and I are probably related and are definitely friends.) Fortunately, the TALGV volunteers have given me time to realize that they are going to feed us, take care of us, and show us how much fun people can be. (I gladly learned the regular food thing right away, and the fun part came quickly, too.) I’m a Shepherd mix male; new friends tell me I’m quite handsome, and although I don’t notice it much, they seem to especially like my curly tail. As a young, very friendly, easy-going guy in medium-size package, I’d love to be your happy, active, loyal best pal.

Hi… my name is King,

Adopted 12-23-19

Before coming here, my life changed and even became kind of scary! My former people moved away and left me alone in the yard with my canine buddy, Snoop. (Snoop and I are probably related and are definitely friends.) Fortunately, the TALGV volunteers have patiently let me figure out that they’re going to feed us, take care of us, and show us how much fun people can be. I’m learning how to trust people and to love being safe and cared about. I’m a handsome Shepherd mix male, a kind of stocky build at around 50 pounds, and although I like to relax, my ears are always in the alert position—you might think “radar ears!”  Going for walks and training is fun, but most of all, I want to be your pal.

Hi… my name is Rosita,

Adopted 11-18-19

If you’re looking for a medium size female dog who is happy-go-lucky, gentle with children, good with other dogs, loves people, is housetrained and crate trained, that’s me! For this first year of my life I was raised and loved by a family with 3 children and an older dog. I’m grateful for the life I had with them, but something changed, and they felt I deserved more time than they could give me. My former dad described me as playful, energetic, and loving. How would you like to share your life and time with a companion who’s full of the joy of living?

Hi… my name is Bella,

Adopted 11-15-19

Comes with Vet Care Support for Life

Are you worried you may be too old to adopt another dog? Worry no more! I would love to come live with you for the years I have left, sit next to you, cuddle, give you kisses and keep you company. I like to take slow walks and meet friendly people of all sizes. Because of my age, I come with Vet Care Support for Life, so no concerns there, either! I get along with dogs and cats alike and know my commands. When my person passed away recently, our family brought me here to find someone else to love. I’ve taken it in my stride, keeping my optimistic outlook on life and enjoying the visitors. But it is not quite the same as having a home and knowing I belong. Would you give that to me?

Hi… my name is Duke (aka Scooby),

Adopted 12-3-19

Duke has earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

“One awesome dog” is how I was described by my former people, but with a growing family, there was less space and less time for me. That’s OK; I know I’m a large athletic guy with a big personality to match. I earned my Canine Good Citizen certificate before I was 3, but a little reinforcement on that would be a great way for us to get to know each other. Folks here say I am strong, but I walk well on leash with a little correction. I am very eager to please and will come when you call me. I am very energetic, playful and extra eager to be somebody’s best pal. If I get lonely, I can jump a fence, but will do well in your active life, where my best friends are at home!

Hi… my name is Benjia,

Adopted 12-28-18

I was happy with my owner for five years, but when they moved, I couldn’t go with them. Fortunately, I’m still my sweet loving self here at TALGV. They say I have the most beautiful face and my auburn coat is oh so soft. And I’m trying to learn a few things. They keep asking me to go for a walk, but I’m not too comfortable with that. Fortunately for me, some of my volunteer friends are being very patient and understanding, and we share happy times in my kennel. Did I mention I’m a people dog? I’d really prefer to just look at you with beautiful adoring eyes and move close so you can stroke my thick luscious coat. Wouldn’t you just love to have a beautiful soft fur baby to adore you?
