Hi… my name is Rukus,

Rukus has earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

If you love dogs (and I’m guessing you do), you understand the heartache of being what’s called an “unwanted” dog. It wasn’t about me, really—my person loved me. She got me as a puppy, said I grew up to be “wonderful,” and even liked my kisses. But she couldn’t take me with her when she moved to Phoenix; her family here wouldn’t take me, and her landlord wanted me gone yesterday. So I was living outside, experiencing long and lonely days, when suddenly, I came here. What a difference! Now I’m in out of the weather, have great company, walk with people every day, and I am wanted here; they call me “a sweetheart.” I’m a 7-year-old female, 44 pounds, and oh- so-ready to love you forever if you take me home.

Hi… my name is Bogart,

I was named after actor Humphrey Bogart because I’m the leading man type—handsome, charming, and strong. But since I’m a dog, it’s probably equally important that I’ve been described as well-mannered, good in the house when left alone, and leash-trained. I also like to be friendly, affectionate, and my person’s loyal partner at play and in quiet times, too. A couple of caveats: I’m a strong jumper; low fences won’t keep me in. And I didn’t get along with the other dog at my last home, which is why I’m here, hoping to find someone who’ll love me as their only dog. I’m a 3-½-year-old Staffie mix male, 68 pounds, and although the handsome movie star talk is funny, what I really want to be is your faithful companion for fun and forever.

Hi… my name is Dave,

Life has improved so much for me recently that I truly believe a happy new home could be mine! There’d been trouble where I came from, a divorce pending, and one person made it clear I was no longer welcome. (I’ve learned that’s not all men—male volunteers here are already my friends.) My former mom praised me—said I was housebroken, good when left alone, rode well in the car and obeyed commands. I’m leash-trained, too, but somewhat strong, so I’m learning to be even better. And I like other dogs—have lived peacefully with a TALGV canine buddy. A friendly, handsome, 4-year-old Staffie mix male, I’m enjoying every day, and every night dreaming of the same thing: A loving, happy home, where I’ll give and receive love forever. Could that be with you?

Hi… my name is Henry,

Adopted 12-31-17

I was a lost dog—no home, no family, no promise of food or water—until a Good Samaritan rescued me. What a relief! She brought me here to TALGV, where people appreciate the way I’m gentle and good-natured, curious about other dogs but generally not dog reactive on my walks. They’re teaching me to walk politely on a leash and, more importantly, how much fun it is to be with someone. Maybe it’s great for people to be rich or good-looking, but I don’t care about that stuff. I’m a dog. I see your heart, sense your kindness. I can even smell your friendliness. Maybe you can see the best in me, too. I’m a 2-year-old, 57 pound Boxer/Staffie mix male, who needs only this: Someone to love, who loves me back. How about you?

Hi… my name is Juan,

Adopted 1-10-18

Juan has earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

Things were going great with my new family, but then I had to return to TALGV due to my dad’s illness, which made me sad because I’m a very sensitive guy. If you visit, you may see me watching people go by with a reflective expression in my eyes. I yearn to be with them, to be someone’s happy friend. And I try my best to please—I ride well in a car, have great house manners, and, with my short legs, I don’t readily jump on furniture. I’m not a big barker, but I do love to be admired, and you know what? That admiration could be a two-way street if we meet heart-to-heart and see the best in each other. What do you say? Will you let me devote myself to you?

Hi… my name is Ralphie,

Please let me show you—up close and personal—why people say that “dog is man and woman’s best friend.” (Cats have their meaningful proverbs, too, but I’ll let them speak for themselves.) I was a stray dog, covered in cactus needles, and that only made me happy to be found. My rescuer said I love people, which leads to the top reason a dog could be your best friend—we love unconditionally. At just 18-months old, I’m active but can be mellow, too, and, as your friend, affectionate when you want me to be. Already good on a leash, I’m a red and white Boxer/Staffie mix male, 58 pounds, who’s eager to learn more good-dog things to please you. And if you say the word, I’ll be the loyal, loving companion you deserve forever.

Hi… my name is Heidi,

When my family’s life changed—the oldest child left for college and mom’s health meant she couldn’t take care of me anymore—we had to say goodbye. But I can find a new home, right? A someone who’ll love me forever! I should mention I’m deaf; other dogs use hand signals, too, but I pay especially close attention. Maybe you’ll have fun learning sign language for words like sit, down, stay. For me, fun includes going for walks (I need to lose a few pounds), playing with toys, and watching TV. I’m a 3-year-old Staffie mix female, who’s been territorial with other dogs, but with people I’m sweet and loving. Indeed, friends say to know me is to love me, and I bet the same is true of you, so let’s be loveable together!
