Okay, 15 years is getting up there, but like with lots of humans, you’re only as old as you feel! And, despite being blind and FeLV Positive (which, along with my age, entitles me to free vet care), I’m still pretty sprightly. My mom went into assisted living (I guess you could say that I’m kinda in that position too!), but she said that I love to have my head scratched and be cuddled (just ask the volunteers!), and I’ve been around gentle dogs too, so if you have a warm heart, a soft spot for “needy” guys, and a quiet household, I’ll bet that would be the perfect formula for happiness for us both! Why not pay your 2018 good deed forward by taking me home?
When I was lost, hungry and thirsty, I accidentally wandered into a dangerous place: The middle of a highway! Thankfully, my rescuer brought me here, where I’ve quickly put those difficult days behind me and made many new friends. The volunteers think I’m a Mastiff mix (82 pounds), and I do possess some of the great Mastiff qualities: I’m affectionate, good-natured and calm. Playful, too—I’ve lived with another dog here at TALGV and we’ve had lots of fun—and good on a leash, although naturally strong. I’m a 3-year-old black and beige female, who’s even more beautiful once you get to know me, and I hope that happens real soon. Granted, I’m not exactly a lap dog, but I’ll bring lots of love and laughter into your life. May I become yours today?
Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers! When my owner decided she didn’t want my housemate (and maybe sister), Amarie, and me any longer, she just plunked us outside to fend for ourselves. Fortunately, a kindly neighbor convinced her to sign the paperwork to relinquish us to TALGV or we’d have been two (pretty small) meals for some hungry coyote or owl by now! When you meet me, you’ll be doubly mystified by her decision because we’re both the sweetest (and chatty!) little things you’ll ever meet. I’m an enchanting Snowshoe Siamese girl, only about a year old, and I promise that if you take me home, your life will be filled with nothing but purrs, rubs, and grateful love.
I feel like I have “revolving door syndrome”! My dad took my housemate, Mido, and me from my first family when they were transferred and only had us three weeks before bringing us to TALGV. To be fair, he did try (and said that I had a “good temperament”), but three weeks just isn’t enough time for most cats to adjust to new circumstances, so I’m hoping another family will be more patient and let me prove that I really can be a companion extraordinaire! I’m a 5-year-old uniquely marked, “greige” (that’s a lovely combo of grey and beige!) boy who’ll reward you in manifold ways if you will just give me a chance. Life’s all about chances, so why not take one with me?
What’s the plural of Pekingese? I should know—I arrived as one of five! (Turns out, the plural is the same as the singular.) Our person’s own health concern meant she couldn’t care for us, so we’re here—a mix of colors, genders, ages and weights, each of us needing a new loving home. I’m a 4-1/2-year-old blond male, 18 pounds, and for fun, I play with my toy ball. According to my person, I get along with people of a gentle nature, but not with other male dogs, and I’ve never been around children. I’m used to being in a crate, but going on a walk is brand new. I’m finding a big beautiful world out there. And for me, the best thing in that world would be a happy life with you!
