Hi… my name is Big Red,

I used to live in a yard with other dogs, but once out, I didn’t want to go back in. Instead, I came here, where I’ve been cautious around strangers (everyone at first). I wish I could tell you more about my history, but the best part of now is being able to start new. I’m having fun with things called toys, I love the wading pool in my run, and I’m living with a great dog buddy. Plus, I’m making people friends! Oh, I’m still shy, but I’m discovering how to enjoy the company of gentle, friendly people. They tell me I’m handsome—a 1-year-old, 58 pound male, with a beautiful red coat and soulful eyes—and I’m beginning to believe my future will be happy and fun, especially if it’s with you!

Hi… my name is (Mr.) Thor.

Adopted 5-26-17

Friends call me “one great all-around guy.” Smart and friendly, I could be your cuddly, sweet buddy, too. At 4-1/2 years old, being active keeps me young and happy; I love to run and spend lots of every day at play. And I can be great with other active dogs in the family—more fun for all! In my last home, we learned I get along best with older teenagers and adults; I form strong bonds and if my person isn’t “boss” enough, I’ll want to protect them. I know commands like “sit,” and walk well on a leash. Plus, in addition to other dogs, I’ve lived with a lizard, turtle, and even cats! So if you have an active lifestyle, won’t you please add this great all around-around guy to your team!

Hi… my name is Rusty,

Adopted 5-20-17

I was rescued from the middle of Whitehouse Canyon Road. You won’t be surprised to learn I’d almost been hit by a car right before my rescuer stopped for me. She said I was very friendly and playful right from the get-go—I was truly happy to see her—but also hard to get in the car because it appeared that the leash was something I’d never seen before. At 73 pounds, I’m a good size guy, but even big boys can be shy and that’s how I felt when we first came here. Fortunately, my friendly nature helps a lot and I’ve been lucky to find kind people. I’m a handsome 2-year-old male, red with white markings, and amber eyes that may “speak” to you of how much I’d love to be yours.

Adopted 1-22-17

HERCULES is a friendly and curious 9-year-old Miniature Long-Haired Dachshund with a handsome red coat. He needs a new home as owner is moving and cannot take him. He weighs 15 pounds, has been neutered, shots are up to date, and he is in excellent health. Hercules is house broken but does not ask to go out because he is accustomed to walking three times a day (he is leash trained and is a tireless walker!). He gets along with other dogs but not with cats; children are unknown. Hercules is a great traveler and does not like to be left alone, but he is happy to stay with dog sitter when needed. There is no adoption fee.

If you would welcome Hercules into your heart and home, please call Chris between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-904-3525.

Hi… my name is Red,

Adopted September 21, 2016

I love making that special human-dog connection! We just look at each other and it’s like we’re having a conversation. There’s one question I can’t answer, though, and that’s how did I get lost? Guess the important thing is that I was found and now I’m here, hoping to meet you! The volunteers named me Red due to my extraordinarily handsome red coat (they flatter me), and weighed me in at just under 60 pounds. I’m a young Lab mix male, and my rescuer said I was good with kids. I’m a playful guy who knows how to have fun, plus I’m practicing “sit,” and other such things because I’m eager to please my human companions. How about we meet today, and see if we can make a happy connection of the forever kind!

Hi… my name is Honey,

Adopted April 10, 2016

Our people had good things to say about my Rottie friend Nemo and me, but they had to keep us tied up and knew that wasn’t good for us. (They’re raising farm animals and had to keep us away from the chickens and turkeys.) We were both “found” dogs, so we’re grateful for the years they took care of us and appreciate their good reports, like when they said I’m loving to people, gentle and tolerant with children. I’m leash trained, so walks are excellent exercise, and I love kids. Honestly, I’m happy to have fun with any good person who’ll play with me! I’m a 9-year-old red Chow mix, a beautiful female who knows what wonderful friends people can be. Visit me today, and let’s see if we can be happy together forever!

Hi… my name is Hannah,

Adopted February 25, 2016

A lovely young family took me in when I was lost, and even though they couldn’t keep me, in a short time we got to know each other pretty well. They said I was a “great family dog, especially with kids.” TALGV volunteers say that’s because I’m beautiful inside and out—a gentle, friendly and loving dog, who just happens to have a gorgeous Husky coat and face. Sometimes I’m shy at first, but I’m also alert and intelligent. When people are kind and friendly, I’ll soon warm up. And once we’re friends, I’m great for playtime, cuddling, or just hanging out. Could we meet soon? I’m a 4-year-old female, with a soft coat that’s light red and white, and a big hope in my heart that you will be my forever person.

Hi… my name is Chuck.

Adopted April 6, 2015.

If you’re looking for a “big, old softie,” come meet me! My friend, Travis, and I were found on Sahuarita Road and I’ve got to tell you it’s sure swell being here out of harm’s way and getting three squares a day! I’m a “glutton for attention” they say, and despite my size I’m really an “easy walker.” I know that any family that has a home with space for a big guy like me will be all the happier with me in it! I’m a handsome, 72-pound, red and white hound mix boy with those typical soulful eyes that will enchant you as much as my personality. You’ll just have to meet me to find out!

Hi… my name is Munny.

Adopted March 17, 2015

I’ll let my foster mom tout my virtues because they’re pretty awesome! “Like the action figure toys that she’s named after, Munny (a 3-month-old heeler/SharPei mix) is perfectly named because she’s a blank slate that her new family can take down multiple paths.  She’s super smart and has already mastered the sit and down commands, making her an excellent candidate for obedience school. Her athleticism makes me think she could also make a great agility dog when she gets a few months older, but she’s already got some pretty smooth moves around the furniture and in the yard!  She’s crate-trained and sleeps through the night has a good start on housetraining. That’s all pretty impressive for a puppy that still has all her baby teeth! And did I mention she’s cute as a button?”
