“OMG, he’s gorgeous and look at those eyes!” That’s what everyone said when I arrived, and although I had nothing to do with it, I guess I can’t deny it! According to my people, I’m also playful, bold and outgoing, a “meeter and greeter” and love to meow at you in response to your talking to me. I also know how to shake hands – something of a rarity in cats! I got along great with the dog and two cats in my home, but when feline territorial issues arose, I started “asserting my dominance” in an unacceptable way, so maybe if it’s just me and a few of the human species, things would be fine. I’m a 3-year-old adventurer who’s yearning to explore new territory, hopefully with you!
BROOK is a gentle, loving 2-year-old, 45-pound female Shepherd mix. She is a very sweet, people-oriented dog who was abandoned by owner. Brook is housebroken and will sit on command; she enjoys riding in car and walking on leash but needs more training. She is healthy, spayed, and is up to date on shots (medical records are available). Brook is okay with other passive dogs; cats and kids are unknown. Brook needs a home where someone is mostly at home; a fenced yard is recommended. There is no adoption fee. If you will welcome Brook into a loving home as part of your family, please call Andrea between 10 AM and 4 PM at 520-307-9481.
My four sisters and I were “unwanted puppies.” Luckily for us, TALGV people say they don’t even know what that means—that we’re all wanted and loved! And here’s something else I’ve learned: Being a puppy is the definition of having fun! Plus, we’re good at all kinds of puppy things, like running, jumping, rolling over, and pulling your shoelaces. We also eat well and grow without even trying! I’m Gemini—a female with a white coat and dark gray eye patches, ears, spots, and a very pretty face. I sure hope you love one of us. Okay, honestly, I hope it’s me, but won’t you come see us all? And if you have the time and patience for a puppy, maybe you can give me the best gift ever: My very own home!

And here’s something else I’ve learned: Being a puppy is the definition of having fun! We’re 9 weeks old, so we’re good at all kinds of things, like running, jumping, rolling over, wrestling, and pulling your shoelaces. We also eat well and grow without even trying! I’m Libra—the one with a white coat and dark gray eye patches, ears, and spot on my tail. I hope you love one of us. Okay, honestly, I hope it’s me, but won’t you come see? And if you have the time and patience for a puppy, maybe you can give me the best gift ever: My very own home!
I’m probably different from most dogs you know because I’m deaf (based on observation rather than a formal exam). If you don’t already know sign language, we can have fun learning signs together for commands like sit, down, stay. Of course, hearing dogs observe hand signals, too, but I pay especially close attention. Maybe that’s part of my charm! Back when I was a stray, the folks who found me said I was gentle and tolerant with children; the volunteers here say I’m exceptionally sweet and loving with everyone. Please come see for yourself. I’m an adorable 2-year-old female, 65 pounds, white with black spots, and I’d love to meet you. They say to know me is to love me, and I bet the same is true about you, so we’ll be great together!
One hot day I was rescued from the desert by a man who saw me walking alone, clearly lost. He said I was friendly and willing to get into his truck—you bet I was! Imagine my relief to be in the company of that good man, who took care of me for two weeks while trying to find where I belonged. He said I got along with his Rottweiller, enjoyed walks, and alerted to strangers. Eventually, he brought me here, where I’ve continued to gain weight (I was too thin when found) and made lots more friends because, volunteers say, I’m a fun guy with personality-plus! I’m 2 years old, a Shepherd mix male, now about 50 pounds, who just wants to be part of a happy home. Could it be with you?
My sister Amber and I have a lot in common. (I call her “sister” because we’re from the same home; we may not have been from the same litter, but we’re definitely family.) Amber and I are both small dogs (I’m a charcoal and white Terrier mix male), we’re both 13 years old, and we both come with FREE vet care for life! Best of all, the most wonderful thing we share is l-o-v-e. We love each other and we loved our human mom. But Mom had to move to a nursing home. (By the way, wouldn’t it be great if every nursing home had a dog wing?) So now, Amber and I are being well looked after in foster care. If you’d like to know more about us, please give TALGV a call.
I’ll share the sad part of my story first: I was abandoned, left behind when my person moved. And there may have been more cause for sadness before that, but I’m okay now—safe and cared for at TALGV—so let’s move on quickly to the good stuff. The walks, cozy blankets and soft bed here are great, and best of all I love the kindnesses—the gentle touches and sweet words. They tell me to say more about myself, so here goes: I’m 5 years old, a luscious cream color with charcoal highlights, female, and little. I hope you like little, cause I can’t really get bigger. And the main thing: I’ll give my whole heart to the person who adds true love and kindness to my life forever. Please say that’s you.
