I’m like a basketball. I’m round, firm, and made for play! At 10 ½ months with a muscular, compact build, I’m a ball of energy. I was found in Madera Canyon bouncing along in my happy way with no I.D. and was brought to TALGV. I love people and would be a good match with friendly dogs my own size or bigger. I look like a Minnie Pittie. I wouldn’t mean to, but I could knock a little dog down with a playful paw pat. And don’t even think about pairing me with a cat. Put on your athletic shoes and come see me. With plenty of exercise, sturdy chew toys, and training from you, and lots of affection and fun from me, we’ll make a winning team!
Love comes in many sizes and when you’re a “plus-size” girl like me, the old saws are true: “big is beautiful,” and “there’s more of me to love!” My sister, Muffy, and my other housemates, Sneakers and Socks, lost our home because our dad had too many pets and couldn’t find anyone to care for us when he traveled. We lived happily with the whole family, which included a dog, so I really miss having the company of humans and other critters to play with. I can promise you one thing though – I’ll do all I can to win your attention, so come claim one of the loveliest green-eyed gals in the world for yourself!
“He likes to be close to you and be petted and is interested in everyone that comes over. He sleeps wherever he wants (in boxes especially!) and gets along with dogs, other cats, and kids.” That’s what mom said about me when she very sadly had to relinquish my housemate, Spike, and me because of her ill health. We’ve both spent our lives with her (we’re TALGV kitten “alumnae”), so my dreams are filled with visions of a new home where I’ll be fifty shades of lucky and have another family who’ll cherish me (and maybe Spike too?) just as much as mom did. (And, ‘cuz I’m 10, I have vet care support for life!)
I’m a sweet 61-pound terrier girl with a big love of people and other dogs. A kind man found me loping along near Anamax Park, and he brought me here to TALGV. He had kept me overnight, and said I was a friendly pooch. He found out I knew how to “sit,” “shake hands,” and “lie down.” Already I’m a favorite with the volunteers, and I’m enjoying a doggie roommate. Here I’ve demonstrated how affectionate I am, and how much I like to have splashy fun in water, even if it’s only a water bowl. I walk like a perfect lady on leash – I don’t pull, and I don’t jump up on people when I greet them. Come and see me, and you’ll find your next best friend and honey bun.
“She was left in a box as a kitten in a Utah snowstorm. My friend picked her out for me and she’s always been gentle, loving, and tolerant, having been dragged around and dressed up in costumes by toddlers when she was young. She likes to sit in the sun and find hidden spots to nap. She was raised like a dog (“Puppykat” is her nickname), and comes to her name or a whistle. I LOVE HER TO THE MOON!” Sadly, my mom’s deteriorating health forced her to relinquish me, but I have high hopes there’ll be someone else who’ll give this senior lady (with vet care support for life) my own shot at the moon!
