Hi… my name is Magic,

Everyone needs some MAGIC in their life. That, my friend, is why I’m here…waiting for you! After a casual, loose-leash walk with a friendly volunteer, she was more than happy to report that I’m “excellent” on a leash, and I know the “sit” command. She seems to believe that someone once cared enough to spend time working with me. It’s not known about my former life, but if  scars are any indication it wasn’t always easy. I’m a male, approximately 3-year-old, Lab/Staffie mix who has so much more to offer. I’m ready to settle down and enjoy some of the finer things in life. I don’t require much, just a home of my own with a comfortable bed, good food, and above all, someone I can love and who loves me. Could that be you?

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Bruce (boy),

NOTE: BIO NEEDS REVISION

Bruce Boy has earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate.

A lady rescued me from a man she saw kicking and yelling at me. But here, happily, I’ve learned to trust people again. Volunteers call me “Gentle, Loving, and Laid Back.” I enjoy all kinds of toys, playing fetch, and learning, but I especially love being with people. I’ve been calm around some other dogs (not all, but some). I’ve earned my Canine Good Citizen certificate, so I know sit, stay, and several other commands. I also walk nicely on the leash. Foster parents report I was a perfect houseguest, especially compliant about getting into my crate at night to sleep. They think I will make a wonderful companion, so come visit me; stay awhile; then take me home with you. Let me give you my love and a new sense of joy!

Hi… my name is Heidi,

My former families all had changes in their lives in which I didn’t fit! This is my encore appearance at TALGV, and once again I’ve been welcomed back like a family member. I’m still the same lovable Heidi; there’s just more of me. I love people, hugs and cuddles, and I’ve been good with children. I understand hand signals and even though I’m deaf, once we get to know each other we’ll have no trouble finding OUR way of communicating. My previous “parents” have mentioned I’m intelligent and responsive to training. I’m house and leash trained, but since I’m very strong, I’ll need a strong handler. I’m not fond of other dogs so I need to be the only pet in the home. Please give me that PERMANENT home I yearn for and you’ll have my “unconditional” love, forever!

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

PS Many photos in the gallery show me at my “goal” weight of 70 pounds… we need to work together to help me get there again!

Hi… my name is Bubbles,

I am a small dog in a rather  large package. They say I am kinda bubbly by nature, and that’s why they gave me my name when I arrived at TALGV. To tell all, I was on my way to a great adventure, even trying to hitch a ride in a car to go some place fun, when a smart man decided that I would be better off here. It’s all good, though: I get food and it’s safe and I’ve made a lot of friends already. The volunteers say I walk nicely on a leash and listen well. Now I just have to find that special someone, my very own special someone, who will finally take me on that adventure. Let’s meet soon. I bet we could become really good friends!

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Stella,

I’m an exuberant, 2-year-old female Staffie mix. I’m a lucky girl to have been brought to TALGV after my former owner passed away. I have a sweet disposition with people, and that’s easy for me since I enjoy giving and receiving affection. I’m strong and full of energy, and can easily get excited, so I’ll need a strong person who can guide me in the right direction. Since I don’t get along with other dogs and tend to be possessive of my things, I should probably be an only dog. I can use a doggie door and walk well on a leash, and there’s probably so much more I can do. Time will tell! Another way to learn of my accomplishments is to take me into your home and find out yourself. Please say you’re willing… because I’m ready to go!

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Nellie,

Adopted 5-2-21

I’m a 2-year-old female Basset/Staffie mix and I’m looking for a home. I can use most doggie doors (I have short legs), and according to a volunteer I’m sweet and I “walk like a dream.” When I recently had a visitor, we had a long conversation about the situation I’m in. You know! No forever-home. We sat face to face and I patiently waited until she finished talking, then I replied with series of a soft, low howls. I don’t know if she understood me, but for some reason she thought that was adorable. What can I say, I AM adorable! You really need to meet me to appreciate me. With my mixed heritage I’ll double your pleasure, double your fun, and you will admit that I’m the one!

Hi… my name is Pepper,

When I first arrived here people wondered why I was black, white, and pink all over. I promised not to tell anyone how I got this way. Don’t worry, the pink has disappeared almost as magically as it appeared. I’m basically an energetic and exuberant 5-year-old Staffie mix gal who loves to walk. I use a doggie door and have been known to sit when asked. You might say I’m also very sweet and lovable. There is one exception, I REALLY don’t like cats. I’m not lonely at TALGV because I’ve already made so many friends. I also can’t complain about the food and service, but as much as I’m enjoying my time here, I’m still dreaming of a home of my own. Please make my dream come true by sharing YOUR home.

If you are considering adoption, please call TALGV office (520-625-3170) and make a date to meet me soon. Kennel appointments are between 10 and 2 every day.

Hi… my name is Diamond,

Adopted 4-8-21

If you were expecting a “Diamond in the Ruff” you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. I’m a sweet, affectionate 3-year-old Staffie mix girl. Since arriving here, I discovered that I love going for a ride in the car, especially when the destination is a new place to explore. My handler said I walk well on a leash and I pay close attention to what he expects of me. I know how to use a doggie door and sit when told. I possibly know a lot more, but that’s up to you to find out. I’m enjoying my stay here at Hotel TALGV but no one wants to live in a hotel forever. What I’m trying to say is “I WANT A NEW HOME.” Please come and discover that this Diamond is a real gem.

Hi… my name is Percy,

Adopted 3-31-21

Even though I’m 3 years old, the way I act you’d think I was an overgrown puppy. Let’s face it, I love people! It doesn’t take much to make me happy. I enjoy going on outings (anywhere) and I look forward to going on hiking trips. Just remember, if I’m going to be outdoors for a long time, take plenty of water because when I get overly excited, I can get dehydrated. I’m good riding in vehicles and I also walk well on a leash but I’m easily distracted. I may be a big, affectionate boy but I’m stronger than I look. I definitely need a firm hand and my trainer highly recommends a well-fitted harness. I already know a few basic commands so it’s up to you to continue my education. I can’t wait to begin!

Lola is a sweet and smart 60-pound, 2-year-old female Boxer/ Staffie mix that needs a new home since she no longer gets along with other dog in the family. She is housebroken, crate trained, and loves to play. She enjoys long walks and is obedience trained (knows and responds to many commands). She is healthy, has been spayed, is up to date with shots, and medical records are available. Lola is somewhat shy with new people and has been okay with small children, but she needs to be an only pet. There is no adoption fee for this special girl.
