Hi… my name is Ralphie,

Please let me show you—up close and personal—why people say that “dog is man and woman’s best friend.” (Cats have their meaningful proverbs, too, but I’ll let them speak for themselves.) I was a stray dog, covered in cactus needles, and that only made me happy to be found. My rescuer said I love people, which leads to the top reason a dog could be your best friend—we love unconditionally. At just 18-months old, I’m active but can be mellow, too, and, as your friend, affectionate when you want me to be. Already good on a leash, I’m a red and white Boxer/Staffie mix male, 58 pounds, who’s eager to learn more good-dog things to please you. And if you say the word, I’ll be the loyal, loving companion you deserve forever.

Hi… my name is Murphy,

Adopted 11-2-17

There once was a group of dogs who lived a hard knock life. I know because I was one of them. We had each other, but were never allowed in the house—no matter the weather. And even as puppies, we worked hard just to stay safe. Then, one magical day, our lives changed. Friendly, gentle people came to visit, brought us yummy treats, and helped us move. Today I live indoors, eat well, and sleep on a comfy bed. There’s a change in my heart, too, because now I dare to dream of my very own home—a place where people will want me to play, have fun, and share their happy, loving life. I’m a little shy but super sweet Heeler male, and you’ll become my forever hero the day you make me yours!

Hi… my name is Lucy,

Adopted 9-2-17

“There are so many wonderful and good things about this dog.” That’s what my former people said about me, and they elaborated: “Great on a leash, easily treat motivated…smart, good looking…active…wants to please …learns quickly.” So why did we part? Cats. I cannot live with cats. Also, after we moved, I had some separation anxiety when left alone in the new house. Back here, the volunteers agree with all the good things said about me, especially the observation that I’ll “warm your heart.” I’m a gentle, sweet, beautiful red 4-1/2-year-old female, 76 pounds (need to lose a few), and although I can be shy at first, you’ll see that I love the company of people. I’m sure there are many wonderful and good things about you, too, so won’t we make a perfect match?

Hi… my name is Big Red,

I’m called a gorgeous Lab/Shepherd mix, but I’m a humble guy—just call me “Red”—and trusting people is hard for me. Fortunately, I love other dogs! We have great fun together and I watch and learn from them. In my foster family, my best dog friend taught me how to use the doggie door, eat around people and other dogs, and even how to let people be affectionate with me. Turns out, it can be awesome! I understand some important words and also can be quite content just playing with my favorite toy. Deep in my heart, I hold the dream of my own home, sharing life with another dog and our loving person or family, who’ll be very patient while I learn to trust. Could my dream come true 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!
