Meet Bandit!

Meet Bandit!

Bandit
Cattle Dog Mix
Male
4 years old
22 lbs.

Forget everything you’ve ever heard about bank robbers, thieves, and, of course, Bandits! I’m the sweetest pup — the only thing I might steal is your heart.

Like some Rocky Mountain Bandits of the past — I’ve had a rough start to life. My family turned me in when they could no longer care for me. But, I’m not letting my sad history get me down. I’m a bouncy fellow who loves to play with squeaky toys, wrestle and win at tug of war.

I’m polite AND house trained — isn’t that impressive? I’ll blow you away — I even know how to stay in my crate when you leave the house. I’m the most trustworthy Bandit you’ll ever encounter.

I love just about everybody I meet, so I could use a loving home with a guiding presence to harness all my positive energy. Not to mention cuddling and petting me day and night.

Think I could bring some Wild West canine excitement to your life? If you think so, fill out a dog adoption application and email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org to set-up meet and greet at PawsCo. I’ll be the Bandit you’ve been waiting for!

Meet Maximus!

Meet Maximus!

Maximus
Hound / Pointer Mix
Male
1 years old
40 lbs.

Hi hi hi! My name is Maximus – but you can call me Max for short! I’m all about making things easy so we can get on to more important things like PLAYING!

I’m pretty much your typical Colorado pup. I enjoy walking, running, hiking, and playing fetch for as long as you like; anything to stay active! There is so much in life to do and there’s no time to waste!

When I’m not out exploring Colorado with my foster family I love to snuggle at home. I’m a very smart boy and am already 100% house trained. I am always so excited to explore that I’m still learning some leash manners but I enjoy those tasty things you guys call “treats” so much that I’m willing to learn just about anything to get them! I’ve already learned “sit”, “come”, “lay down”, and “off” for starters – I aim to please!

In addition to being super smart I also love meeting new people. I love all the humans I’ve met (big and small) – and dogs too! I don’t have a mean bone in my body but kitties sure look like something fun to chase so it may be best to avoid temptation and find a home without them. I’m just a happy puppy in a big dog body.

If you’re looking for an energetic goofball to fill your heart to the MAX I just can’t wait to meet you. Adventure is out there so please please please reach out to my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application today!

Meet Cooper!

Meet Cooper!

Cooper
French Bulldog Mix
Male
11 years old
44  lbs.

**Snort, snort** Cooper at your service. I’m a distinguished older gentleman with wit, dashing good looks, and a piggy snort that humans find quite adorable! It doesn’t take much to keep me content- eating and napping are my two favorite pastimes, and I hear that many humans feel the same way!

I’ve got a cute tummy to go with my piggy snort, and I just love a good belly rub, followed by some nice ear scratches! Then maybe a quick walk around the block, and I’ll probably indulge in a nap after that, and anyone is welcome to join me (as long as you don’t mind some adorable snoring!) I’m not a big toy pup, as I only have about half of my teeth, but I make do just fine with the chompers I’ve got! Trust me, I can definitely eat that treat.

Kiddos and other pups are just fine with me, as long as they understand I’m not a young whippersnapper. Respect your elders, right?! I’d be just fine as the only pup, too – more belly rubs for me!

Life is about the simple pleasures, and I can’t wait to enjoy them with my very favorite humans! Email my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application to learn more about me!

Meet Mika!

Meet Mika!

Mika
Husky mix
Female
2 years old
48 lbs.  

Confession! I am basically a human, but with four, furry legs. I love human attention and I think they are just the best companions. I don’t discriminate, though – I love dogs almost as much. Right now, I have another best puppy-friend.

I gotta admit, I am still working on my indoor manners, but like any good Husky mix, I am super smart and figure out things fast. I am learning to be better about going outside. I am also learning that, just because a human leaves some extremely delicious looking food on their kitchen counter, it  doesn’t necessarily mean it’s for me. What is this world?!

I promise to bring energy and cuddles into your life. If you’re interested in bringing me into you home, email my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/ to learn more about me!

Meet Flurry!

Meet Flurry!

Flurry
Heeler/Shepherd Mix
Female
1 year
40 lbs.

I’m a young lady who’s looking for a patient, calm Mom or Dad and at least one other pup that likes to play! I’m crate-trained and love the backyard!

I had a pretty rough start to life and as a result I’m still pretty scared in some situations, like meeting new people for the first time. But with the help of my foster parents, I’m getting more braver, and getting better at my manners in the house. I’m getting to know my foster mom pretty well, so she’s getting to see my silly personality. I’ve even started playing tug-of-war with her! One of my favorite things to do is round up all the toys in the house and take them to my kennel with me.

And once I get to know a new dog, I love to play with him or her! My canine foster siblings are teaching me how to run and play in the backyard and now it’s my favorite thing to do!

Since I’m still getting used to new things, a house with small kids is probably not the best place for me. With the help of a patient and understanding parent, I hope I can get so comfortable and brave that I’ll forget all about my past. I’m slowly learning to trust people and once I get a forever family, I’ll come out of my shell even more!

So if you’re ready to find out how rewarding it is to help a scared but hopeful pup learn to love life, please contact my  friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application here https://pawsco.org/adoptions/catadoptionapplication/ to learn more about me!

Meet Nalie!

Meet Nalie!

Nalie
American Staffordshire Terrier mix
Female
5 years old
70 lbs.

Are you looking for a new shadow? If so, I’m your girl – I like to be around people. I’m not clingy, but I might follow you around for awhile and wait for you to pet me.

I like going on walks, but because a recent knee sugery, I can only go for about 30 minutes at a time – and no running just yet (but I’m on the road to recovery and should be ready for longer walks and hikes soon!) I also would prefer to be in a home where I’m the only pet, and I haven’t quite gotten the hang of making new dog friends out in the world. I haven’t met any kids yet either, but I like people, and they’re just small people, right?

I can take a little while to warm up, but once I do, you’ll see that I’m playful and love toys. Once my knee heals, I can’t wait to play and run. But I also am content to nap near you or hang out in my crate. I promise that once you meet me, you’ll see what a special pup I am.

Meet Boo!

Meet Boo!

Boo
Cattle Dog/Boxer Mix
Male
2 years old
51 lbs.

Hey there! I’m Boo and I’d like to be your new best friend!

See, I’m one of those honest types. Like, super honest–almost like I don’t have a filter! For instance, I can’t play it cool–you’re probably noticing from my wagging tail that I’m eager to hang out! In fact, a snuggle on the couch would be just delightful!

I love playing outside with other dogs and then coming inside for a peaceful snooze. I’m pretty laid back and just want to chillax indoors. I’m house trained and know all of the classics like come, sit and stay. I’m totally trustworthy when it comes to leaving me home alone–no worries there!

I also love toys and I love going for fun hikes in the mountains! I have such a fun energy when I’m exploring new things!

I am working on my comfort with meeting new people right now as new people are a bit intimidating to me at the moment. I am totally content with the people I know and love but can feel defensive in general when I’m unsure of a new relationship. Therefore, I’d do best in a quieter home where I can just be happy with my humans and not need to meet tons of new people in general. And I also need to be in a home without children since I have shown to be nervous around young humans as well.

But you know what I’m not scared of? Lots of love and affection from an amazing family! I would make an incredibly loving companion for someone who understands my foibles and can help me feel safe. And I promise you that I will love you and treasure you every day forward if you are my forever person.

Will you please give me a new “leash” on life? All you have to do is email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. Thank you so much!

Meet Hiro!

Meet Hiro!

Hiro
Lab/Greyhound Mix
Male
2 years old
64 lbs.

Yippee! A new friend! I’m Hiro, and I absolutely LOVE meeting new people!

Like my celebrity role model Hugh Jackman, I’m a bit of a people pleaser. I’m super friendly and love everyone! At the dog park, I love greeting people and playing with the other dogs. I zoom around showcasing my graceful running style – I’d run all day if you let me! I’ll even sing and dance if the mood strikes!

Like Hugh said, “If you love something, you don’t just read about it; you hug it, you mess with it, you play with it.” I’m smart and inquisitive, so I want to enjoy the heck out of life! It’s so fun to chase birds and squirrels, or goof around with toys. Toys! What’s not to love about toys? And snacks! What’s not to love about snacks? There are so many things that make me burst with joy!

So yep, I’d love to find someone who wants to live life to the fullest with me! We could go hiking, biking, train for marathons–I’ll be the best adventure buddy you could hope for! We could even compete in canine agility events if that sounds fun. Think of all the new friends we’ll make together. After a day well spent, I’ll be your snuggle pal who might just try to sit in your lap. Cuddling makes me super happy, too!

Can you please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/? I will jump for joy!
