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/.

Do you ever wish that dogs could talk? I can tell you, for sure, that I do too because there is so much I want to tell you!

For starters, I would tell you that I am a pretty cool dude. I am super sweet and cuddly, I am very well-behaved in the house and on walks (I mind all the rules), and I give THE BEST kisses.

I would also tell you that while I might appear shy around strangers, I’m really not. It’s more that I am just cautious and careful. I just need a relaxed introduction and a few minutes to myself to figure out new people. After that, any friend of yours is a friend of mine! And that includes your four-legged pals too!

Overall, I am just a mellow guy looking for a mellow person. If you are just as happy chilling on the couch as you are strolling through the park, then please fill out the adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/ and send an email to my PawsCo friends at adopt@pawcoadoptions.org so they can get us together!

I can’t promise that my mellowness will hold though once I meet you! I can’t wait!

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!
