Dogs come to TAGS from local shelters, shelters in the U.S., and owners who can no longer keep their dog. Azriel and her brother and sister were rescued by TAGS in September from a shelter in Kentucky. Due to the large animal overpopulation problem in the U.S. and space constraints in the shelters, nearly 50% of shelter animals are euthanized there each year. Azriel and her siblings were saved just in the nick of time from becoming part of this dismal statistic.

Though scared and skin-and-bones at first, these pups were at regular weight in no time with some good food and love from their TAGS foster parents. In the months since their journey from Kentucky, Azriel’s siblings have been placed into a loving forever home (adopted together), leaving Azriel, the last of the sibling trio, still among our adoptables.
Azriel, or Zee-Zee, is a real sweetheart of a pup. She is smart and playful, looking up to her humans to follow their requests as closely as possible. She is still a young dog, and as such, she has been responding quickly to basic obedience training and is very eager to learn. While she is happy to receive treats, a pat on the head is just as effective a “treat” for Zee-Zee.

She is well socialized with other dogs and shy around cats. Although she is sometimes timid in new environments, she quickly adapts and is soon asking for cuddles and pets. A very gentle dog, Azriel walks well on her leash and is great in the car. She loves people, dogs, playtime and car rides—in other words, all things “dog.”
