Hi… my name is Sonny,

My former owner brought me to TALGV because the other female dog and I had an altercation. When I first arrived, I couldn’t figure out why I was here and I was very nervous. The kind volunteers tried to put me at ease. Now that I’ve met all these caring people, I feel so much better. I know some commands such as sit, wait, off, and (occasionally) down. I know I need some more basic behavior training, and I’m smart enough to learn. I absolutely love playing in water. I also like playing with toys, but they need to be tough toys. I have never been around children or other pets but people here are learning more about me. If you would like to meet me in person please call and make an appointment.

Hi… my name is Pasta,

Adopted 6-18-20

My litter of nine babies and I were found abandoned on the street in Nogales, Mexico, and then brought to TALGV to find homes. My puppies are not yet ready for adoption, so they are in foster care for now. I am in good health but due to the strain of nourishing my family, I am quite emaciated and am grateful for the good meals provided by my new friends. (I may be skinny, but my heart is full of love.) My foster mom reports: “She’s pretty much house-trained and appreciates air conditioning. She wants to know where her person is and loves to ride in the car. She walks nicely on leash but may freeze if she sees a big dog, even from a distance. Pasta is happy to meet smaller dogs and especially likes women.” If you have room in your heart and home for a sweet and obedient girl, please call TALGV office at 520-625-3170 and make a date to meet me soon.

Hi… my name is Dozer,

Dozer has earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

I’m a happy-go-lucky, five-year-old, 65-pound Staffie mix boy who loves people and is always anxious to please my humans. I’m leash trained and crate trained and know all of my basic commands. My foster family says that I’m a great source of amusement, but that I’m a little high-strung. I’m not really sure what that means, but I do know that I crave an active lifestyle with lots of adventures. That said, I’m not destructive when left alone and rarely bark. As content as I am here, I’m ready to be your attentive, loyal companion. Please call TALGV office at 520-625-3170 and make a date to meet me soon. Just say the word, and we’ll share life’s journeys together.

Ellie is a sweet and affectionate 6-year-old, 55-pound Staffie mix female who needs a new home. She is crate trained, leash trained, and has some obedience training (knows “come” and “place”). She is housebroken and asks to go out. She is in good health, spayed, up to date on shots and medical records are available. Ellie does not get along with other dogs or cats and would be best with older children. She loves to relax and to snuggle but doesn’t care much for walking. She needs a low key, only-dog household. There is no adoption fee for this special girl.

If you will welcome Ellie into a loving home as part of your family, please call Andrea between 10 AM and 7 PM at 520-307-9481.

Hi… my name is Prince,

Adopted 5-25-20

I was found in the desert and had lots of cactus thorns to be pulled out when I arrived at TALGV. Once that was done, I went to live at a foster home. Foster mom wrote this story for me: ‘I’m house-trained and love to ride in the car. I prefer to be wherever you are but understand if sometimes I just have to wait patiently for you to come back to me. I’m a great walker! I like to rise early and if you won’t let me cuddle on your bed, I’ll nibble on your feet or hands until you get up and give me big hugs. (I must admit that I need to be an only dog, but my tough guy looks are deceiving.) Humans are my favorite!” Won’t you come sit next to me so I can snuggle up next to you and put my head in your lap?

Hi… my name is Bella,

Adopted 4-21-20

I was found with burned paws and cactus needles in my coat. My kind finders brought me to TALGV, and, boy, this is a great place for lots of attention and yummy food! Now I’m spending time with Foster Mom, who says I am wonderful, sweet, and obedient. I know my Staffie look might sometimes be scary, but I am so gentle, especially when taking treats from you. I’ll alert you when I need to go out, and I can be trusted when left alone inside. My favorite activities include watching TV on the couch with you, lying in the sun, and watching people and their dogs walk by (without barking). Wouldn’t you love to have a beautiful, mellow girl like me? Please come visit me and see how much love I have to give.

Hi… my name is Reddit,

Adopted 5-28-20

I was brought into TALGV looking a little rough, so don’t judge the book by its cover. The folks here have been oohing and aahing over me since I got here. I am very people motivated, friendly, and definitely affectionate. I greet everyone coming in with gentle enthusiasm so they can get used to me. I know having that Staffie look sometimes scares folks, but once you meet me, I will definitely change your mind. I have gorgeous golden eyes and a caramel-colored coat with white markings. I am one lucky dog. I got the looks, the manners (except I don’t like cats and small dogs), and all the love you can handle all in one fabulous package. Now I just need my someone special to share all that love. Would that be you?

Hi… my name is Shadow (aka Peanut),

Adopted 4-3-20

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so why waste all those words when my picture is all you need. You will notice I’m a compact 5 ½-year-old Staffie mix gal; what you can’t see is I’m ADORABLE! My former owner of 6 months had to relocate immediately and couldn’t take me with him. He said I’m gentle, calm, love to cuddle and be around people. I’m leash and crate trained, and I ask to go out (or use the doggie door). I’m happy to sit for a tasty treat, and you could teach me so much more! At TALGV the volunteers pop in and visit, but what I would really like is a visit from you. Let’s not mince words; please adopt me and take me home.
