Hi! I’m Purdy and there’s a song I can’t get out of my head: “I want to know what love is…I want you to show me…”

See, I spent most of my life locked up in a shelter in Texas where I had very little interaction. I’m naturally sweet, but I’m also shy because of that experience and learning to come out of my shell – and to be a dog! Luckily I’m a fast learner with a calm temperament. I’m interested in learning more about dog toys and I really like when people pet me or give me attention. I’m great on leash and not reactive to anyone I meet. I think life could be pretty amazing under this Colorado bluebird sky!

Even though I haven’t known much love in my life, I am pretty good at giving it. Dogs, cats, little humans, I love them all. I’m leash-trained, house-trained, and I hang out in the crate when my foster family isn’t at home.

Will you please show me what love is? Please email my friends at PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application here https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/ to learn more about me!

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!

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!
