Hi… my name is Mercedes,

“Home is the nicest word there is.” Author Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote that, and I believe it. I dream of home all the time—a safe place where you love someone and they love you back. Even a place to have fun! I was found on the road by a man who already has four dogs, so I was brought here, and right away they said that I’m an exceptionally sweet dog. “Cooperative and cute, too” they called me, not minding at all the few scars on my face from tough times in the past. I’ve met lots of kind people here who appreciate how I’m good-natured, calm, and friendly in my own gentle way. Maybe you will, too. And just maybe you’ll take me to the nicest place of all—home with you.

Hi… my name is Freya,

When I arrived at TALGV, I immediately experienced two big feelings: Happiness at being with friendly people and relief at being cared for and safe. I’d been lost, and the volunteers said I seemed positively joyful to have been rescued. They also saw that I had some skin issues that needed attention and when they first put me in the tub for my bath, I sighed with relief. Since then, things have gotten even better. I’ve made lots of new human friends; I don’t care for other dogs, and need to be the only dog at home. My whole heart goes to people, and I try to let them know how good I can be—a 2-1/2-year-old, 47-pound female, sweet, attentive, and hopeful that you’ll let me be the lucky dog you love forever!

Max

Hi… my name is Max,

I was an irresistible little copper-brown puppy who grew into the friendly, 2-year-old, 60-pound dog I am today. But my story took a wrong turn somehow because I ended up lost, a stray on the side of the road. My rescuers (bless them) found my former owner, but she’d been out of state, had left me with someone else and I evidently got out—however it happened, I’m here now and glad to have the chance to meet someone who does want me. I’m housebroken and crate-trained, know some important things like the “sit” and “down” commands, and although I don’t appear to like other dogs, I love people almost beyond measure! A Lab/Staffie mix male, I’m an active, fun-loving guy, who’ll also be the happiest guy around when you say I can be yours!

K C

Adopted 5-9-18

KC is a handsome, energetic, and social 3-year-old, 65-pound Staffie mix that needs a new home as rescuer is disabled and unable to provide enough exercise for him. He is in good health and is neutered. KC loves people and has excellent manners; he knows many commands: sit, stay, come, lie down, no, get your leash, bring the Frisbee, down, treat, off, easy, heel, and more! He is housebroken and asks to go out. He gets along with other dogs, enjoys car rides, walks well on leash, and loves to play ball and run at the park. Not recommended for children or cats and might be best as an only child.

Hi… my name is Mader,

Mader has earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

When I was lost, I had one big advantage: I wasn’t alone. There were three of us—two other dogs and I were found near the interstate. When we arrived here, being together gave each of us the added confidence needed to meet new people, and that’s sure been worth it. My new friends have shown me that people can be as much fun as dogs! I’m a Lab/Staffie mix male, mainly black with touches of white, and about 57 pounds. As a 1-year-old, I’m looking forward to lots of fun, happy times, and I bet you can teach me how to be the best dog I can be. Here’s hoping we can start real soon, because I’ve learned that being with someone makes every journey better, especially the one that takes us home.

Hi… my name is Nala,

Adopted 5-24-18

When I was lost, I had one big advantage: I wasn’t alone. There were three of us— a male dog, another female and I were found near the interstate. Being together here has been helpful, too, because although I’m calm and sweet natured, I was timid around people at first and did the get-acquainted dance—two steps forward and one step back. It sure was worth it! My new friends stroke my short tan coat, and they’re showing me that people can be as much fun as dogs! A nice size at 49 pounds, I’m a 1-year-old female who’s still learning, and you’ll hear my unusual bark when we meet, which I hope is real soon because I’ve learned that being with someone makes every journey better, especially the one that takes us home.

Hi… my name is Foxy,

When I was lost, I had one big advantage: I wasn’t alone. There were three of us—a male dog, another female and I were found near the interstate. Now, being together here has been helpful, too, because it’s given each of us the added confidence needed to meet new people. Happily, I’ve been the friendliest of our little trio and it’s sure been worth it! My new friends have shown me that people can be as much fun as dogs! A nice size at 47 pounds, I’m a 2-year-old Lab/Staffie mix female, black with touches of white, a couple of almost-hidden scars from the past, and, best of all, an eagerness to get to know you because I’ve learned that being with someone makes every journey better, especially the one that takes us home.

Hi… my name is Bella Ann,

Adopted 4-11-18

“Sweetness on four legs,” my friends call me, enjoying my happy wiggle, doggie smile and gentle manner. They understand that for me, being brought to this safe place with its kind people feels like a sort of miracle. I’d known much harder times, having been abandoned as a very young dog, left chained in a yard. Fortunately, a neighbor took care of me for a while, noted I was good with kids, but then she moved and couldn’t take me. That’s when I came here, and I was grateful from the get-go! Medical attention came first, along with routine exercise, and now training class (I’m good on a leash). I’m a 1-year-old, tan and white, adorable female, and I’ll be sweet on you forever. Isn’t that the perfect reason to make me yours today!

Hi… my name is Baby Girl,

In my first home, the landlord said I wasn’t allowed. Then, the next couple said I was too much puppy for them. So now I’m all set for number three, my happily-ever-after home, where I hear those wonderful words, “you’re just right for us!” I’m an active, loveable, young Staffie mix female, now 44 pounds, with a beautiful brindle coat. A mighty jumper (need a tall fence, please), I’m not fond of other dogs and so need to be your only canine, but I’m such an exuberant, happy dog, one’s enough! I’m also a fun dog—love being with people, playing fetch, going for walks and giving you my full attention because you’re so important to me. So what do you say? Will you make this my luckiest day ever by making me yours?
