Hi… my name is Belle,

Of all the wonderful things about people, I put kindness at the top of the list. I’m grateful to receive and give it. So when we meet and you find me a very sweet dog, you may be surprised to learn I’ve known hard times. Then again, if you notice my scars, you’ll understand right away. I was attacked by other dogs—it was a complicated situation, and I tried to defend myself, but ended up in the hospital. Today, I’m healed and happy—living in a foster home, comfy cozy, and able to dream that I, too, could have a happy, carefree life. People who care about you are wonderful. Having someone love you is the best! Maybe you and I could feel that about each other. If so, let’s get together real soon.

Hi… my name is Lily (aka Mila),

If my eyes look a little sad, it’s because I’m yearning to be with people. My former family saw that I was gentle and tolerant with the children (ages 2 and newborn)—they said I was “great with kids”—loved to cuddle and play, and, of course, would come when called, which is because I want to be with you! So why am I here? Because I need to be in a single-dog home. Although I’m fine on a leash and have gotten along with some other dogs, there are dogs I suddenly don’t like, so I need to be your only dog. (Single and loving it!) Please know that I’ve learned important commands, how to “ask” to go outside, and will build my happy world around you, if you let me be yours forever!

Hi… my name is Mason (aka Marty),

Back when I was a really young pup, my person said she couldn’t socialize me because it was too hot for walks. Granted, some Arizona days are best spent somewhere cool, but we all need socialization, right? So, being here has helped me a lot. I’ve attended class with people and other dogs, and have impressed friends with my good behavior there. Oh, I’m still young, strong, and learning, but already walk nicely on a leash, obey basic commands, have been gentle taking treats, and can be very active at times, calm at others. (In my former home, I was also housetrained and used a doggie door.) Training, patience and love equal a winning combination so far, and if you let me be your loyal companion, we could share lots of happy trails together!

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,

Adopted 10-14-18

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.
