Meet Sally!

Sally
Black Lab mix
Female
4 years old
53 lbs.

Hi, I’m Sally! I haven’t had the easiest life, but I’m hoping that 2017 will be the year for me. My first owners weren’t very nice to me, but despite that, I absolutely love humans and love receiving affection – I’m just about the sweetest girl you’ll meet. I hope you love snuggling, because I am a snuggle expert extraordinaire! I even know how the, “spooning” game works – if you’re looking for a little spoon, then I’m the dog for you.

I’m a fairly low-key kind of pup. I enjoy hanging out and relaxing at home, but when my foster family grabs my leash, boy do I get excited! Walks are one of my favorite activities (next to snuggling, of course!). Did I mention that I’ve got great manners, too? I’m pretty good on-leash (except when an enticing scent catches my nose!), I can come when my name is called, and I’m a pro at “sit.” I’m crate-trained too, although I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of my crate. I much prefer sleeping on the bed with my foster family!

I would do best in a calm home with a loving adult or two – I bond to my humans quickly and would love to be the center of someone’s life! I can be a little picky about my canine friends and I’m not a fan of cats, so I’d prefer to be the only pet in my new home (after my rough start in life, I’m sure you can understand!)

Given my tough beginnings, I take a little while to build up trust with new humans. Like any sensitive soul, I can be timid at first, but I always come out of my shell and truly enjoy finding new humans to share my love with. I’m hoping 2017 brings me the hero I’ve been waiting for!

So what do you think? Ready to meet me and see if we have that special connection I’ve been waiting for? All you have to do is fill out an adoption application or email my friends at PawsCo today. I’ll be waiting for you!

Meet Crush!

Meet Crush!

Crush
American Pit Bull Terrier
Female
2 years old
39 lbs.

Hey there! I’m Crush and I’m a happy lady!

I am proud to be female and I’m not afraid to strut my stuff–I love to go on walks outside! I’m food motivated so I’m a fast learner. Check out some of my attributes: potty trained, not destructive when left to my own devices, will sit or lie down when asked, and love to give kisses.

I’m sweet and loving with adults and kids alike! Though I can be particular about the dogs I like, I’ll happily play with all the cool ones who know how to treat a woman. Respect, right?

One of my favorite poems is “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou. Here’s the part that really resonates with me:

I walk into a room just as cool as you please,
And to a man, the fellows stand or fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me, a hive of honey bees.
I say, it’s the fire in my eyes, and the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist, and the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman, that’s me.

I guess the only other thing you need to know about me is that I’m a huge believer in the power of belly rubs and snuggling in bed. So if you could use a phenomenal woman in your life, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. Thank you so much!

Meet Hank!

Meet Hank!

Hank
Beagle
Male
7 years old
31 lbs.

Well hello! I’m Hank and I’m proud to be a beagle.

Why wouldn’t I be? Snoopy was a beagle, for goodness’ sake. Charles Darwin sailed around the world on the HMS Beagle. A beagle named Uno was “Best in Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2008, and Miss P reclaimed that title for us in 2015. Everybody loves us!

That’s why I am just so happy to find my loving forever home! I can’t wait to bring tons of love and laughter to a wonderful family of my own. And I can tell you right now… you’ll just love spending so much time with me! I love lying on the couch next to somebody, goofing around with squeaky toys (even fetching!), or making people smile by hiding my nose under blankets or pillows. I’m one of those special dogs who even sleeps through the night!

I like to show off a bit on walks as I am such a polite walker and love going on walking adventures with my foster parents! I’d even be a great hiking dog (I’ve heard Colorado has some amazing trails that I would love to check out!) In fact, I love to go on walks so much that I’ll sit before I go outside. I also sit for treats and my food bowl. Yep, I’m pretty darn smart!

While I do just fine interacting with dogs out and about on walks, I’ve shown to be a bit too jealous of other dogs in the house and am not the biggest fan of sharing my space with another dog friend. Therefore, I’d do best in a home where I can be the only pooch in the house (but don’t worry…I have so much love to give, you won’t mind at all!) But I do just fine with cat friends so if you have a feline buddy in the house already, I’m happy to co-exist and be best of buds with them!

Can I please come home with you? Just email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We’ll have more adventures together than Snoopy and Charlie Brown!

Meet Dakota!

Meet Dakota!

Dakota
German Shepherd
Female
4 years old
73 pounds

Hi there! I’m Dakota and I’m hoping you’ll be my best friend!

Sorry, did I come on too strong? This whole find-your-match thing is tricky! Potential partners can be intimidated because I have beauty and brains. I started as a stray and got pretty keyed up when I was forced to stay in a stressful shelter environment, but now I am so happy to be in the PawsCo foster system getting ready for the perfect forever home! So yes, I’m laying my cards on the table: I’m looking for true love.

I know, I know, I’m probably not playing by “The Rules” admitting that I want to find a home that offers stability, a routine, and love. I should flirt and play hard to get and not answer your calls, but that’s not my style! I’m friendly to people and other dogs because I want to be accepted so badly! I’d be a great pet because I’m not super hyper–I have that nice medium energy. A little tug of war or play with a ball is heaven!

Sure, I have some quirks. I don’t understand why people stare at the box they call television, so I try to stare back to see what all the fuss is about (yes, I’m told it’s cute). Cats make me nervous. Maybe it’s because they’re so coy, which I know nothing about. I prefer to snuggle in close for affection or follow people around like the proud dog that I am. I know there’s a reason why canines are called man’s best friend!

If you’re looking for loyalty and love, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We will be so happy together!
