Here’s what Marc says about Tally

My family is looking to find a great home for our dog Tally.  Our one year old daughter has a severe allergy to pet dander and we haven’t had any luck over the past few months mitigating the dander in the house. So unfortunately, we have to try and find another happy home for Tally.

Tally is a 6 1/2 year-old “Avon Terrier” that we adopted when she was around 7 months old.  Basically, she is a Cairn/Westie/Schnauzer mix.  She has a great temperament and is very well behaved.  She walks well on a leash (although doesn’t like to share the sidewalk with another passing dog).  She is kennel trained and loves to lounge in there with the door open. She has been spayed and is up to date on all her vet visits. We went through several rounds of obedience training at K9 Coach when she was younger.  We can’t say enough good things about her and wish we didn’t have let her go. We live in the Mendota Heights area of the Twin Cities.


Help Dotty find a home!

Birthdate (estimated): 6/1/09

I love attention, and like to play!

I have lived in a home my whole life, but ended up in a shelter because my family couldn’t keep me.

I get along well with everyone. I like to hog all of the attention and would be just fine as an only dog.

I would rather not live with cats, unless they can commit to leaving me alone. They freak me out!

I need a home that can give me the love I deserve.

In the Pilots and Paws program, pets in overwhelmed kill shelters get a second chance by taking ‘donated’ flights to their new adoptive homes. Pilot Jeff Bennett recently celebrated his 1,000th rescue.

The retired businessman and dog lover has been donating his plane, fuel and his time for three years.

Join me and many other fine vendors for this year’s Goldzilla Fun Fair/Walk to raise money for Rescue a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM). This event takes place on Saturday, September 17 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Island Lake Park, Shoreview, MN. SW corner of I-694 and Victoria Street.
