Hi… my name is Chuck,

Adopted 4-8-18

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, 64-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!  (bio needs update)

Hi… my name is Beau,

Adopted 3-17-18

“He is among the most devoted dogs we have ever owned…extraordinarily sensitive…a WONDERFUL dog.” That’s my mom and dad talking about me, and there’s more: “He is very eager to please, loves everybody—even delivery people, and especially kids—and has never shown aggression towards a person.” But when Mom had serious medical concerns, I became protective, and more reactive to other dogs. Now that both of my people have health and mobility issues, and although it broke their hearts to say it, they think I deserve a less stressful home, where I can get regular exercise and I’m the only dog. I’m a 2-year-old Red Heeler mix male, housebroken, leash- and crate-trained, who loves the company of people. I’m meant to be someone’s loyal and loving companion—will you let me be yours?

Hi… my name is Skittles,

Adopted 3-30-18

On a sunny Saturday afternoon—another hungry day for me—a wonderful something magic happened. I can’t describe it exactly, but I was just searching for something edible, when suddenly a kind person was talking to me, and then presto—I was at The Animal League! They call that magic being “rescued.” And let me tell you—I like it. No more hungry days for me; here I have company, comforts, and pretty soon I won’t be as skinny as I was on rescue day. I’m a very handsome Red Heeler mix male, a nice medium size, and as a 1-year-old, I’m still playful, energetic, with some things to learn. Shy at first, I’d love to show you how I warm up quickly, what fun we could have together, and why I’m the dog for you!

Hi… my name is Ralphie,

Adopted 2-25-18

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 Yogi,

Adopted 9-10-18

I used to live outside all the time. Oh, I learned to cope, but the comforts and company of living inside are truly appealing. (I do love a pool, so some outside time can be fun.) I’m 7 years old—lots of living still to do—but my people are moving and can’t take me along. We’ve been together since I was a puppy, so it’s a big change, but there’s a bright side: I know how to be a loving companion and I certainly love receiving attention, so this is my big chance for more of that! I’m an Akita/Lab mix male, about 65 pounds, with a beautiful rust and white coat. I’m leash-trained, have lived with other dogs, know some commands, and will live happily ever after if 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,

Adopted 4-7-18

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!
