Hi… my name is Taco,

Adopted 6-1-17

When our home changed to include three small children (2 and 3 years old) and two dogs (both bigger than me), I wasn’t as comfortable as I had been. My person said I couldn’t handle the small kids anymore, and so it was decided I’d better find a new home. Right now, things have been kind of scary; I’m a little guy—7 years old, just 15-1/2 pounds. You can imagine how much I’d love to snuggle in your lap, if that’s okay with you. Indeed, I’d like to be your lap dog every day! We can go on walks, too—I’m leash trained and housebroken (in my former home I’d stand by the door to “ask” to go outside). I really just want to be someone’s good dog forever. Won’t you make me yours?

Hi… my name is Chubaca,

Adopted with Jade 6-2-17

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!

Hi… my name is Camellia,

Adopted 5-3-17

Comes with FREE Vet Care for Life

At 10 years of age, I’m glad to say I know what love is. Some time ago, when I’d been abandoned, neighborhood kids fed me for 3 weeks. Then I was adopted, but due to health concerns of their own, my people had to bring me here. Love flows both ways, of course, so I understand and wish them only the best. But I do need a new home, and since I’m an older dog, that requires someone special. I’m overweight and have some concerns older dogs often do, but I also have good news: I come with FREE Vet Care for Life! I’m leash trained (although I walk slowly), I love children, and if you have a place in your heart for me, I’d love to share my gentle, peaceful company with you.

Cody adopted his rescuer 5-22-17

CODY is a mild-mannered, gentle 2-year-old blonde Lab/husky mix boy who lost his mom recently and needs a new loving home. He is house-broken and asks to go out, but he loves his daily walks. He weighs 120 pounds, is neutered and up to date on his shots (medical records are available). Cody likes other dogs and cats, is social with everyone, especially women, and he likes children of all ages. He is used to a doggy door and will “sit” on command. Cody is mostly a house dog who enjoys laying on his cushion, but he would enjoy a ranch or horse setting. There is no adoption fee. To arrange a meeting with this special dog, please call John between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-591-5474.

Hi… my name is Drake,

Adopted 4-5-17

Drake has FREE Vet Care for Life

I’ll be a gracious gentleman and simply say that I became a TALGV dog because my owner forgot to pick me up. (The word “abandoned” is so hurtful that I’ve chosen to forget it.) So, I’ve been waiting a while, but now my future looks great—the chance for a happy, comfy, loving home with my wonderful new someone. Who could ask for more? Oh, I should explain that if you notice my chronic limp, that’s due to a past injury to one of my legs. Of course, I still hope you choose me for my charm and good looks, but there’s also this practical reassurance: I’m 10 years old, so I come with FREE vet care for life! I’m a blonde Labrador Retriever male. Could you be the one I’m watching for?

Hi… my name is Queenie Sue,

Running free can be glorious if you’re safe—like when you’re at home or out running with your person. But I was found running loose and not safe at all because I was near a highway, without a collar or tag, and without a friend until a gentleman stopped, picked me up and brought me here. People say I’m stunningly beautiful—a blonde and white Husky mix female with a good-looking physique at 61 pounds—and those kind words are sweet, but I’m way more interested in how we feel about each other. Come visit and you’ll see that I’m looking for a friend. I’m 4 years old and still energetic, so we could exercise and then relax together the way old buddies do. How about it? Could we be friends for life?

Hi… my name is Mr. Jingles,

Adopted 2-28-17

When found, I was injured—maybe hit by a car—in the area of my back legs. Fortunately, a wonderful foster mom took me home and let me rest until I was strong again. Then I was adopted, but my new person became ill and must now spend lots of time away from home, so I’m here again. Bottom line: It’s been a bumpy ride, but I’m fine. I’m young—just 10 months old—and if I do say so myself, a resilient guy, who’s ready now for my happiest home ever! Just 12 pounds, I’m a blonde Chihuahua male with alert ears and big brown eyes that are watching for my special someone—the person who’d enjoy a happy little companion and will let me love them forever. Could it be you?

Hi… my name is Buttercup,

Adopted 1-5-17

When you look in my eyes, do you see a sweet and loving dog? I hope so, because that’s how friends describe me. My former person said I was very affectionate, very gentle, and very smart. But she couldn’t keep me because after three weeks of living together, the resident terrier decided there was one too many dogs in the home, so I had to go. And that’s okay. I still believe there’s a wonderful, forever home for me, too. I’m a 4-year-old blonde female, just under 60 pounds, leash-trained and eager to be your loyal, fun-loving companion—just turn on the hose and you’ll see a dog who knows how to have fun! Maybe today I’ll look up and see my forever friend, the one who’ll take me home. Could it be you?

Hi… my name is Carlos,

Adopted 12-21-2016

Since I’m a yellow Lab mix, you might expect me to be a really great dog. Well, I’m too humble to brag, but the volunteers say “a really great dog” is exactly what I am! The woman who found me said she was walking by Walden Grove when I just came up to her—a friendly, sweet guy. Oh, I’m playful, too. At just 14 months old (58 pounds), having fun is the best part of my day. And fun can include being gentle, loving, and attentive to my person. I just wish I had a person now. The volunteers sometimes find me sitting quietly, calmly relaxing. And you know what I’m thinking at those times? That a dog like me belongs with someone who wants to share the good life—someone like you!

Hi… my name is Prancer,

Adopted 12-8-16

Imagine you’re out for a stroll with your Border Collie, enjoying a little exercise, when suddenly six puppies run out to greet you! I was one of those puppies and I can tell you we were delighted to see that fellow and his dog! We’d been hiding under a stored RV, and our mom was nowhere around. So, our finders brought us here, where we’ve been the group to see for anyone who loves a litter of cute puppies. As the only blonde, I’m kind of a standout, but all of us are equally adorable. (If you think I’m the most adorable, that can be our secret.) Back on 11/27, I weighed 6 pounds; probably more today because I’m a growing boy. Please come visit today and let’s see if we find each other irresistible!
