Hi… my name is Tessie (aka Rosie),

(Note: Bio needs update.) I was found with my Hound friend Missy—two young dogs running loose. I won’t say we were running free because when you don’t know where to find your next meal, clean water or a safe place to rest, you don’t feel all that free. But we did stick together and her company made me happy. I’m super friendly by nature and not just with a dog buddy. I really like people, too; I think it shows when I look at you with my bright, happy eyes. I’m a sweet, little Terrier mix female, blonde and just about 12 pounds, so I’ll fit nicely in your lap. At just 18 months old, I’ll be your happy, loving and loyal companion for a long time to come, so please let me into your heart today!

Hi… my name is Nugget (aka Katie),

Some people describe Shar-Pei dogs as having a “hippopotamus” muzzle. That’s what I call distinctive and fun, which I like to think describes me to a T. I’m an 8-year-old blonde Shar-Pei female, just 33 pounds but with a sturdy build, and a calm and confident personality. I’m friendly to people, always happy to go for a walk, and leash-trained. At my former home, I darted out of the door one time and was hit by a car, so my trainers are helping me learn sit/wait at doorways. (I’d say I’m doing pretty well with that.) Now, I can’t speak for everyone, of course, but I believe a dog’s life is far better with people. And vice versa. If you agree, I hope you’ll make us both very happy by making me yours today.

Hi… my name is Chili Pepper,

There are “bad environments” and then there are really, really BAD environments, and that’s what I came from. There were about 30 of us in a hoarding situation, and thankfully an incredibly dedicated woman rescued all of us over the course of a few months. Several of my companions and I came here, and when we arrived, almost all of us had one sort of affliction or another. It’s been a long road to recovery, but we’re almost there and SO ready to have places of our own. I’m a delightful 19-month-old Siamese mix girl with the most wonderfully soft, rabbit-like fur, and although still a bit stunned by my ordeal, I’ll warm up in no time and fill your house with affection, one purr at a time!

Hi… my name is Firecracker,

Adopted 10-23-17

My happy little life had a dramatic and dangerous beginning. When we were just days old, my brothers and I were part of a remarkable rescue—twelve dogs (including six newborns) found in a vacant house without food or water in triple-digit heat. Our TALGV friends worked frantically to save us all and they succeeded! Of course, our mom was helping the whole time, and she will always be our number one hero. When rescued, I weighed about 1 pound. Today, I’ve grown to 6.8 pounds, part of which is my curly blond-and-white coat (Mom was a Poodle mix). I’m now a playful, energetic, 4-month-old male puppy with lots to learn, so some patience and training required, but if I promise to stay adorable forever (and I do), may my happily-ever-after-home be with you?

Hi… my name is Liberty,

Adopted 8-18-17

Now that everything’s okay, I’m happy to be an Animal League star! My babies and I were part of a remarkable rescue—twelve dogs found in a vacant house without food or water in triple-digit heat. Our TALGV friends worked frantically to save us and they succeeded! Of course, like all good mothers, I did everything I could for my three babies and have kept it up once we were safely here. The volunteers (who’ve seen many litters) compliment me on being a very good and attentive mother. They also say that on my own—a young, blonde, 10-pound Poodle mix female—I’m an exceptionally sweet and adorable dog. So all’s well save for one thing: Now that my pups are all adopted, I’ll need a home of my own. Could you be the one to rescue me forever?

Hi… my name is Sparkler,

Adopted 7-30-17

There were twelve of us—6 young dogs and 6 newborn puppies—left in an abandoned house without food or water in triple-digit heat. Then a door opened. A woman had heard us. She was our first hero, and there would be many more. Indeed, we were in such dire straits that the rescue activity at TALGV by so many people—busy with fluids, cooling, nourishment, whatever we needed—is a bit of a blur. What I know for sure is that our lives were saved that day. Now we each have a future—a chance to thrive, play, give and receive love. I’m a blonde/reddish 1-year-old Poodle mix female, 12 pounds, and I’m sure you understand why I’m so ready for a carefree, fun and happy life in a comfy, loving home with you!
