TailWaggers of the week: Goldie & Jazz

Meet a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups: Goldie and Jazz.


Goldie is a 2 or 3-year-old, super sweet, female Shepherd mix. Goldie was adopted from the shelter and promptly escaped her adopters' yard. She needs a secure yard, as she can jump a 6-foot block wall with ease.

Thankfully, a wonderful lady found Goldie and took her in.  She gets along with other dogs fine, but chases cats and lizards in the yard. She is still working on leash manners (she's a strong girl) but has been responding well and learning quickly.

Goldie needs a home that will not make her an outside pet — she needs to feel secure and part of the family. With a little training, this girl has the potential to be amazing! You can meet beautiful Goldie this Saturday at the RAD Rescue and Harley Davidson's Dog Days of Winter event on the Interstate 10 frontage road between Cortaro and Silverbell from 10am-3pm. Goldie is spayed and and up to date on her vaccines. Her adoption fee is $125.

If you or someone you know is interested in meeting her, please contact RAD Rescue, Inc. at 661-400-5151 or visit www.radrescueinc.org.


Jazz is a roughly one-year-old male Smooth Coated Retriever mix.  He is medium size, about weighs about 40 pounds. Jazz loves other dogs and even children, but he’s not too sure about cats. He is very cautious and a little unsure with new people and surroundings, but adapts fairly quickly. He needs a family that would allow him to open up slowly and develop trust.

Jazz is crate trained and housebroken, he also knows the command "sit" and "down."  He has not yet mastered the “come” command, he believes that starts a game of tag and chase. Jazz loves toys, especially his ball and stuffies - beware toys, this boy has made it his mission to destroy all the stuffed toys there are.

Jazz can be very protective of his people and his territory but he takes corrections easy and tends to learn rather quickly what is acceptable and what is not. He loves any and all attention he can get from his people. Jazz is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. His adoption fee is $125.

Save a life

Most Tucson rescues are small, volunteer-based non-profit groups who rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption.
