Meet Aleckite!

Meet Aleckite!

Grey Tabby Domestic Short Hair

Hi there! My name is Aleckite, but you can call me Al for short. I love people and I’m looking for the purrrfect family to share the rest of my life with.

What can I say about myself? People like to describe me as an easy-going, laid-back, mellow kind of guy. I love meeting new people and exploring new places. Since I’ve got a few years under my belt, I’d like to think I’ve seen a bit of everything and feel pretty confident that the world is a good place. Other cats? Love ‘em! Dogs? Sure, no problem! Oh, and did I mention how much I love people of all ages?

My favorite way to spend the day is snuggled up next to my people. I’ll keep your spot on the couch warm, and I promise to greet you at the door when you get home to help you get settled in. I definitely don’t mind listening to your day and letting you know I care by putting a paw on your lap. I just love to be close to my family and can’t wait to show you the all the best ways to cuddle up together.

I should mention that when the good people of PawsCo rescued me, I was in pretty rough condition. One of my eyes was in bad shape, and the doctors knew it was in my best interest to remove it altogether. I know it sounds pretty scary but I’m doing just fine now, and even while I was recovering, I stayed my happy self. I also have been diagnosed with diabetes, which means I need to have my glucose tested each day and receive insulin if my levels are high. This can all be done in the comfort of home and PawsCo can give you all the details about the process. We hope that as I get healthier and healthier that my diabetes will go away! But that’s not something that we can predict quite yet.

If you’re ready to find the love of your life, email my PawsCo friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application today!

Meet Blossom!

Meet Blossom!

Blossom

Long Hair Chihuahua/Terrier Mix

Female

3 years old

Oh hi there, my name is Blossom and I’m looking for someone I can, well, blossom with!

I’ve had a bit of a journey in my short life so far! I came to PawsCo from Texas as one of those “Hurricane Harvey” dogs you might have heard about. Before coming to Colorado I spent most of my life in a shelter so I’m still getting used to my new digs. I’m just taking everything really slowly and making sure I feel totally comfortable before opening up. I promise I’m not playing hard to get, I just need to get to know you a bit before I’m ready to show you my goofy side.  

The good news is that since moving to Colorado I’ve learned a lot of new things! I’m pretty proud of myself for officially being “potty trained.” I’m also learning a lot about the all the different types of friends you can make in this world. My foster family has introduced me to kitties (I love them – they’re just my size!) and a pretty mellow canine brother. I’d definitely enjoy another puppy friend, but right now some of the more pushy pups I’ve met on walks still intimidate me. I just prefer a calm buddy that lets me be me!

I’m also learning a lot about all the fun things to do in life. I absolutely love going for walks! I definitely feel most confident while cruising around the neighborhood and even feel good enough to show off my sassy prance sometimes. I am on my best behavior on the leash and I never pull.

I’m still feeling a little shy around people and being touched – it’s all just so new! My foster family has been really great about taking it slow and showing me that not all humans are bad. I’ve opened up so much already and am starting to learn that being pet or lying next to you on the couch can kinda be great! I already get so excited to see my foster family that I can’t help but spin around in circles, so deep down I know I’m going to find the perfect family that makes me feel safe and loved forever.  

I’m ready to start blossoming into a spunky, sassy, playful girl, so if you think you’re ready to take the leap with me, just reach out to my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application here https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/ and let’s do it!

Hey, I’m Bandit, and I’m here to steal your heart!

I’m an easy-going and playful pup who just brings so much joy to a loving home! I take a couple of minutes to warm up to new people but once I do, I am a total love with a fun and goofy personality! One of my favorite times of day is bedtime, when I run around in circles and then burrow in the fluffy blankets. Then I flip over for belly rubs and kisses. It’s just the cutest thing (so they say!)

When I’m not snuggling in for bedtime, you can find me hanging out with my foster mom around the house (I just love being her little shadow!) and playing with all my toys (my favorite are mini tennis balls. They’re so much fun!) I’m doing great with potty training and I also enjoy going for our daily walks.

I get along great with other animals and I currently live with a large dog and a cat in my foster home. I prefer calmer dogs overall as I’m just a little guy and need to make sure I can trust a canine buddy! I really like cats though, since they’re about my size. Especially if they like to cuddle with me!

So what do you think? Are you ready to let me make off with all your love? Email my friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application here: https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/

Meet Joey!

Joey

Chihuahua

Male

1 year old

9 lbs.

 

Hi, I’m Joey! Do you know what a joey is? It’s a baby kangaroo, of course, and just like a joey, I like to jump!

Because my legs are so little, I’ve found that the quickest way to get places, whether it’s playing fetch or just running around the yard, is to jump. I take long hops, just like a joey would, and I get where I’m going so much faster. When I’m not hopping, though, I really love getting cuddles and belly rubs from humans, and of course treats are great too.

My foster brother is a little guy like me, so we spend a lot of time playing together. I like other dogs too, but I haven’t met any cats yet, or those little humans some people have.

Are you ready to take biggest hop of them all with me? Ask my friends at PawsCo for more information by emailing adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and filling out this adoption application: https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/.

Meet Boulder!

American Bulldog/Lab mix

Male

Hi there! My name is Boulder – pretty perfect for a Colorado pup, right? I cannot wait to find my forever family and start living life the way I’ve always dreamed about!

First thing you should know is that I’ve been told I’m somewhat of a gentleman. I’m smart and I always try to mind my manners. I am still learning a bit about what those manner things ARE, but rest assured, my heart is in the right place. I do know a whole bunch of commands already (sit, stay, lay, shake, go to bed, move, etc.) and I’m always looking for ways to please my people. I’m a quick study, so maybe we can keep adding to the list!

I wouldn’t say I’ve got a ton of puppy energy, but I certainly don’t mind some play time. One of my favorite things to do is chase after one of my squeaky toys and then keep the party going by tossing it in the air! I also love to go for walks and car rides. I am an excellent road dog. I’m still working on my leash manners, but my foster mom has a great harness that’s been teaching me to slow down a little and enjoy my walks even more! You gotta stop to smell the roses after all.

After all those fun activities, I think it’s time to cuddle! I absolutely love to cuddle up with my foster family. Family is very important to me and I tend to be a little protective. Once I get to know someone I can go back to being a snuggle monster, but I’m definitely a little curious around anyone new. I just love my people so much! I also like other dogs but I can be picky in choosing my dog friends, so if you’re a friendly pup we should meet each other first to see if it’s a match. I’d also be just fine as the only dog in your home!

I had a chance to meet the kind folks at Denver Animal Care and Control for a breed evaluation and they’ve officially determined that I’m a lab mix! That makes me so happy because that means I can live in the city of Denver. PawsCo is happy to provide a written confirmation of my breed evaluation as needed!

If you’re looking for a new BFF then look no further and reach out to my friends at PawsCo today! You can reach them at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application. I mean look at my smile – how can you resist?

Meet Shea!

Shea

Shepherd Mix

Female

12 years old

Oh hey, I’m Shea! So glad to meet you. I’m getting up there in years, it’s true, but I’m still looking for my forever family.

I came to Colorado from Texas after that big hurricane flooded so many homes, and now I’d like to find a new place to live where the ground is a little higher. I like to stay close to people, so I follow my foster family all over the house, and love it when they take me on walks. Since I am getting older though, my hearing and sight aren’t what they used to be, and I’ll need a family that can help me ease into old age.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fun, spunky, independent dog who wants to love you and bring happy into your house. I’d probably be okay with older kids and dogs, as long as they aren’t too overbearing. I haven’t met any cats, but I have met these other bird things – I think my foster mom called them chickens – and they are okay by me.

So if you’re ready to say hey to Shea and let a little senior love into your life, let my friends at PawsCo know by reaching out to them at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out this adoption application: https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/.

Hmm? Oh, hello! I could barely hear you over my own purring. If you like to listen to a good kitty purr, I’m your girl, because I have the sweetest, most adorable purr.

I’m looking for a forever family who will make me so happy that I never have to want for love! Aside from that purr, I’m a quiet, sweet little cat who likes to play and cuddle. I’m friendly with other cats, and I’ve even done well meeting a dog friend!

Oh, hello there, how are you? Are you in the mood for a lap cat that still has energy to play? If so, I’m Toasty and I’m your girl.

I was relinquished by my previous owner, so I’m looking for a new family to love. I am a playful and affectionate girl who likes to hang out with other cats and to cuddle with my people. I haven’t encountered dogs or kids yet, but I do like to play and adventure.

If you would like to play as much as you’d like to have a kitty curl up on your lap and purr, please email my friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out this application: https://pawsco.org/category/adoptable/cat/.
