For someone who recently gave birth to 11 puppies—yes, 11 babies in one litter!—I’m now delightfully close to feeling carefree. My human family found homes for eight of my puppies, but they were moving and couldn’t keep the rest of us, so, thank goodness, there was room for us here. We arrived hungry and I was very thin, but we soon thrived on our “three squares.” At 42 pounds, I’m now svelte in a good way—a nice size for a 2-year-old female (whose “mama days” will soon be behind her). In the past, I played well with 14- and 15-year-old kids, and here at TALGV, I’m a sweet dog to my new friends, good on a leash, and eager to find someone to love forever. Will you please be my someone?
“She loved her dogs.” That’s what my wonderful mom’s family said about her and I’m living proof. I was her loving companion for 2 years and during the second year, she also adopted Blackie, who’s now my best buddy ever. After our Mom’s death, her daughter couldn’t take us because she has 8 cats who don’t like dogs (!), but she was glad to talk about us, saying I’m very sweet and playful, a handsome tan and white 3-year-old male, 64 pounds, who’s already housebroken. I’m eager to learn other things to please you, but there’s one very important lesson I already know: Kindness and love make for a happy home. If at all possible, Blackie and I would love to stay together, so we can both share the happiest of homes with you.
“She loved her dogs.” That’s what my wonderful mom’s family said about her and I’m living proof. When I wandered onto her property a year ago, she welcomed me into her home and introduced me to Bugsy, another one of her dogs, who’s now my best buddy ever. After Mom’s death, her daughter couldn’t take us because she has 8 cats who don’t like dogs (!), but she was glad to talk about us, saying that I’m a playful, loving, 2-year-old guy, 52 pounds, who’s housebroken. I need training not to climb fences (currently can climb any fence), but there’s a very important lesson I already know: Kindness and love make for a happy home. If at all possible, Bugsy and I would love to stay together, and share that happiest of homes with you.

I’m such a happy, always-glad-to-see-you kind of guy that you may be pleasantly surprised by my seriously excellent credentials. For instance, I’ve earned my Canine Good Citizen certificate for an outstanding performance in the behavior department. I know “sit,” “stay,” and “down,” how to behave well at home and in public, and I’m leash trained. Asked to list my strengths, my former owner started with “he minds.” Now, the fun stuff: I play ball, like car rides, and my former family said I was great with kids. They’re moving and couldn’t take me with them, which is disappointing, but friends say my future is bright. I’m a friendly black and white 5-year-old male, currently 53 pounds, and I’m so ready to be somebody’s best buddy forever that all you need to add is love.
My friends here at TALGV suggested I tell you my story because they thought I could explain it best. First, when I say I’m outgoing, it means I’m friendly with almost everyone and also that I’ve gotten “out” more than once. My former people were family to me, so it wasn’t for lack of caring, but sometimes a gate was accidentally left open or a door wasn’t shut. In any event, it was decided that a new home was best for me. I’m excited about the possibility of new people to love and hopeful because people find lots to love about me, too. I’m an 8-year-old female, 79 pounds (yes, “diet” has been mentioned), and here’s the main thing I want you to know: I’d love to stay home and be happy with you.
A stroke of luck—perhaps a magic moment—made me a TALGV dog. A volunteer was walking between the buildings when, out of the corner of her eye, she spied me running loose in a neighbor’s parking lot. She called and I happily ran to her. I’d probably been out in the hot weather for some time because my paw pads were swollen and peeling, so you can imagine how great these cool floors felt to me. And as glad as I am to be here, my new friends seem just as glad to have me! They say I’m adorable, calm, and attentive to my person. Just 5 months old, I’m a sweet tan and white female, about 35 pounds, who is ready for that best magic moment of all—when you make me yours.
Here’s my secret: To know me is to love me. Oh, I’m a quietly independent female, but I’m also a genuine sweetie pie. People are often surprised by how quickly we become friends, which happens because I like people and it shows. Give me a little affection and I’ll gently give it right back. And when you’re ready for a walk, I’m happy just to be by your side. (I’m good on a leash, crate-trained and know some commands.) When I was found on a frontage road with my son Lucky Boy, our finder said we were both very friendly—concerned for each other, but also welcomed her attention. And now I want to welcome yours. I’m a 6-1/2-year-old Staffie/Bulldog mix female, 51 pounds; calm, affectionate, and ready to love you most of all.
