Sprite
Anatolian Shepherd Mix
Female
2 years old
86 lbs.

Have you been looking for a big dog with an equally big heart? Look no further—you found her! I’m a spritely young lady (see what I did there?) who has pretty much only one mission in life: to love you forever!

I’m still only two years old so we’ll be able to have tons of fun together. I love playing and being goofy, but my most favorite thing of all is to be by your side and cuddle. I’m confident on my own, but I love belonging to a family too–even if it’s just you and me!

What about the particulars, you ask? Well…this girl loves kiddos and I’m definitely a fan of cats. Dogs? Dogs are amazing! Dogs are my spirit animals! I’m also potty trained, great on a leash and am happy plopping down on my doggie bed at night (yep, your bed will still be “your” bed).

So if you are looking for a giant bundle of love to add to your family, make sure to send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/!

Meet Pebbles!

Meet Pebbles!

Pebbles
Chihuahua Mix
Female
9 months old
5 lbs.

Hi! My name is Pebbles and I’m an itty bitty throwback pup — all the way from the Stone Age. I’m a little timid around my modern day surroundings, but with the right gentle hand and loving Bedrock home, no doubt I’ll blossom. Am I the Chihuahua mix you’ve been waiting for?

Remember The Flintstones? I’m too young to remember because I’m only 9 months old, after all! But I hear I resemble the Pebbles Flintstone both in stature and personality. I’m a pip squeak at five pounds and such a sweet girl.  I am loyal to my family and working to build up my confidence with new people.

I love parading my toys around, and all my prancing is guaranteed to make you laugh. My foster family says I have adjusted to my foster home so well and am eager to learn and be loved— how special is that? I’m even crate trained — my crate is like my cave, a safe place for me to rest and relax.

Currently, I’m living with two dogs in my foster home and I have so much fun with them! I enjoy their companionship and would do really well with another dog in my forever home too (please note that I’m a tad intimidated by really energetic bigger dogs so I will need a bit more time to warm up to that personality type!) I also am so gentle that my foster mom thinks I’d do just fine with a cat friend in the home too.

Are you the Fred or Wilma to my Pebbles? If you think so, fill out an adoption application on the PawsCo website and email my PawsCo friends to set-up a pre-historic meet and greet. I’ll be your forever baby girl!

Meet Elsa!

Meet Elsa!

Elsa
Bull Terrier
Female
4 years old
38 lbs.

Yes, you are correct…I am just about the most adorable girl you’ve ever seen! And I can assure you that my adorable personality and kind soul matches my beautiful exterior just perfectly. And I just can’t wait to find an amazing forever family to share my life with and bring so much joy to!

I’ve adjusted so well to being in my foster home and I continue to flourish each and every day! I’m still a bit shy and am learning about how to be more confident with new people. But once I’ve built that initial trust, I’m just a doll and am enjoying affection from my foster mom. I also do really well with my dog friend in my foster home! We co-exist really nicely with each other (I’m not super into constantly playing with another dog so I’d do best with a dog who is more easy going and can be a laid-back companion with me.) I have been a bit too curious towards cats when I’ve been introduced to them so I do need to be in a home without a cat friend.

What are some other adorable traits about me? Well…I’m really good at playing with my favorite “pie” toy-I love to carry it around wherever I go and it’s just the cutest! I think toys are like sprinkles of sugar on the donut of life! I also am potty trained and have adjusted just fine to being in a kennel when my foster mom is away during the day.

I do need to share one slightly embarrassing piece of information about myself (not something a lady like me wants to share at an initial meeting but I guess we do need to get to know each other pretty quickly to ensure we’re a great match!) I have something called incontinence, which basically means I sometimes can’t “hold” my pee in for longer periods of time (like throughout the night and on a longer day in the kennel.) I am on a medication that helps me control that a lot and I may need to be on that medicine long-term (the total cost for the medication is $100/month.) I also have some skin allergies that have improved with a some special baths and a healthy diet of grain-free novel protein food (you’ll still see my nose has signs of those allergies but it’s continuing to heal and I feel so much better!) The nice folks at PawsCo can fill you in on the rest of the details about my medical needs but I do need a forever family who is understanding and patient with me with these needs.

So if you think that you’re ready for a completely devoted new friend, and are able to help me get more and more comfortable with the good life, then please send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. I can’t wait to meet you!

Meet Blue!

Meet Blue!

Blue
American Staffordshire Terrier
Male
11 months old
62 lbs.

Hi! Look over here…the dog doing the happy dance with the wagging tail…yay! Hi again! I’m Blue and I absolutely love meeting new friends!

I used to be a “neglecterino,” as Ned Flanders on “The Simpsons” would say. I spent my days chained outside without shelter or water. But PawsCo is giving me the chance to find a happy forever home, and I couldn’t be more excited! Toys are fun! Walks are fun! Meeting other dogs is fun! Playing with the Chihuahuas in my foster home is fun!

Climbing up stairs…not so fun. It took me six days to muster the courage to try those strange things. But then I did it! Soon I bet stairs will be fun, too!

I’m great in a crate (hey, a rhyme…fun!) and housetrained. Walking on a leash is one of my specialties, but I don’t need a ton of exercise even though I’m still just a youngster. I’m also known for my sloppy kisses, wagging not just with my tail but my entire rear end, and snuggling with my teddy bear. I love affection and am just a silly, sweet, lovable guy!

Will you please give this comeback kid a second chance? Just email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. I will love 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 Crush!

Meet Crush!

Crush
American Pit Bull Terrier mix
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. I’m potty trained, sit and lie down when asked, and learned on my own the joy of giving kisses.

I’m sweet and loving with adults and kids alike! My one stipulation is I’d want to be the only female dog in the home. That way I can keep all the boys in line myself! I guess I’m a bit of a flirt with the fellas and love to wrestle and play, though I can get protective of my treats so hopefully the guys will know how to respect a woman.

I enjoy a long walk or a quick run, but my favorite thing to do is cuddle. Sure, I have bursts of energy, but only in spurts. I’m not destructive when left alone or anything like that. The most popular word to describe me with my PawsCo friends is “awesome”!

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 an awesome lady in your life, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We will have so much fun together!

Meet Jamison!

Meet Jamison!

Jamison
Labrador Retriever/Boxer Mix
Male
4 months old
24 lbs. (and growing!)

Hi friend! I’m Jamison, and I’m super sweet!

Seriously, I’m like your favorite candy. I’m one of those loving, sweet boys–yes, my tail practically hurts from all the wagging I do! It’s just so fun to meet girl dogs and boy dogs and people and kids…there goes my tail again!

I really feel like the world is my oyster. Who knows what happiness I’ll find? I’m so ready to explore it if I can just find someone who will celebrate my enthusiasm for life! Right now, it seems like the possibilities are endless and I want to spread that positivity to as many folks as possible!

Oh, my tail is starting to wag thinking about it…here goes my wiggly rump too…what if I found a home where I could play? I’m such a puppy, so I’m ready to play until I crash into a blissful sleep. But then, I love to wake up and start wiggling again…and give my trademark kisses! I love giving puppy kisses!

I also love learning–I’m super eager to please! I already know “sit.” Next up: “down” and “come.” I’m one of those special dogs who is confident but also respectful. (And did I mention, playful? Let’s party!)

If you’re looking for a sweet wave of puppy love in your life, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. What do you know…there goes my tail again!

Meet Sally!

Meet Sally!

Sally
Black Lab mix
Female
4 years old
53 lbs.

Hi, I’m Sally! I haven’t had the easiest life, but all that is behind me now that I’m in a foster home. My first owners weren’t very nice to me; 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 pup 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 very 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! And don’t worry – I’m also pretty trustworthy if left alone at home.

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!)

I adore people but might take a little while to build up trust with new humans. I’m a sensitive soul and can be a little timid, but I always come out of my shell and truly enjoy finding new people to share my love with.

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 adopt@pawscoadoptions.org. I’ll be waiting for you!

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!
