Before coming here, my life changed and even became kind of scary! My former people moved away and left me alone in the yard with my canine buddy, Snoop. (Snoop and I are probably related and are definitely friends.) Fortunately, the TALGV volunteers have patiently let me figure out that they’re going to feed us, take care of us, and show us how much fun people can be. I’m learning how to trust people and to love being safe and cared about. I’m a handsome Shepherd mix male, a kind of stocky build at around 50 pounds, and although I like to relax, my ears are always in the alert position—you might think “radar ears!” Going for walks and training is fun, but most of all, I want to be your pal.
