My name is Precious. I am available for adoption through Colorado Canine Rescue (CCR), a nonprofit dog rescue located in the Denver area. I came to CCR from a shelter in New Mexico. There is very little history on me. CCR has been told I am a Lab Retriever Mix breed and about 2 years old and 43 lbs but that is just a guess made by shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and our veterinarians.
I am a super fun girl who is crate trained and housebroken. I'm also the perfect mix of a family dog and a watch dog. If a stranger comes up, I will let you know and stay by your side until you let me know they can be trusted. I come when called by name and I do know that my name is “Precious”. I am intelligent and I take calm instruction well and know commands “sit”, “stay”, and “lay down”. I love to go on walks and think running and hiking would be great.
I love people and kids however since I'm so excited, I'm probably best with older children. I must have a decent sized yard to run around in and I LOVE to explore! A walk every day is something I need that will help keep boredom away; 30 minutes should be fine! I am highly inquisitive and love to chase squirrels and I will jump a fence to get those little buggers so I really need to be in a home with a 6' high fence. I haven't been around cats yet but given how I like to chase squirrels, I probably shouldn't be in a home with them. I'm okay with some dogs but I can get territorial and I'm really a guard dog so it would be best if I were the only dog in the house.
I really just love my humans and want to be with them and protect them. I'm just looking for that forever home that I can call my own. So what do you say? Are you my forever family?
If you are interested in adopting Precious please submit an adoption application located on our website, www.coloradocaninerescue.org. We are asking for a $175.00 adoption donation for Precious. Please note, CCR cannot guarantee the breed composition or ages of our dogs as we usually have no history prior to them entering the shelter.
