Facts about Courtney

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn

  • ID#: 10607815-16-1282

Courtney (aka Palawan) She is about 5 months old (estimated birthday is 4/25/2016) and she weighs 7 pounds currently.

Courtney is a very loving girl, but like any Chihuahua she can get very scared and nervous when in a new environment or meeting new people. She will shake a lot, but after a little while with re-assurance and PDA (public displays of affection) she will calm down and start giving little kisses once she is comfortable.  And once this happens… be ready, she is full of energy. She loves to run and play, she loves fetching balls she could do this for hours with me. She loves stuffed animals and will entertain herself with them shacking and throwing them around. I took her to the beach this past weekend and she had a blast, she was more daring than my own dogs, she would try to follow my dog in to the deeper side and didn’t care that the waves were bigger than her. I had to hold her back before she could be swept in… she is a little dare devil J


During her stay with us, she learned to use her potty pads fairly at a 90%, she had the occasional accident but it was pretty impressive how quickly she got it. I live in an apt complex and since she did not have all her boosters she was not allowed outside (hence the training pads), but I am pretty sure she would get going outside in no time. She also learned sit and is still working on stay. She is great with other dogs, she might get a little intimidated at first by bigger dogs, but still will try to play with them just tried to be more careful.


Did not test her with cats, but I’m sure she will be fine.  She met a couple of toddlers, and was pretty scared of them at first as with any other human, but later mostly avoided them.  She LOVES peanut butter, because she was on meds that is how I would give them to her, and she became pretty obsessed with it. She recognized the jar as soon as she’d see me touch it and would go nuts waiting for it. But she loves all treats, but prefers the chewy kind.

She sleeps through the night, the first couple of weeks she slept in her kennel in the kitchen and slept all night with no crying or issues, once she started showing improvement with the potty pads I let her sleep in my room with my other dogs and she slept in her bed all night.

Courtney is a tiny girl so homes with older children would be best as she can break easily, she is so fragile. Put in your app if you would like to meet our little BAT eared girl.

About Evergreen Animal Protective League

About Our Rescue Group...

The Evergreen Animal Protective League was organized in April, 1981, to aid lost, abandoned and suffering animals through rescue, shelter and education. The League has provided a better life for over 9,300 cats, dogs and other pets. Some facts.
We are totally volunteer. The majority of our members work during the day and do their volunteer work in the evenings and on weekends. There are NO paid employees.
We are not supported by taxes. All funding comes from donations from the public, and from fund raising activities. We do not make money from adoption fees. Adoption fees do not even cover the cost of advertising the pet, let alone vet care, etc.
Because we must raise our own funds to operate, we depend upon the Evergreen community for contributions and for volunteer assistance.
We are a non-profit organization recognized for tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service. Our tax exempt number is 74-2204391. If you are contemplating donating to us you may use this number.
We rescue and shelter (if space is available) abandoned pets.
We adopt pets not claimed by anyone to new homes.
We reunite lost pets with their owners through lost and found records.
We assist financially with neutering of pets, and we educate pet owners about neutering whenever possible.
We educate adults wherever possible about proper care of pets.
We provide educational programs in the elementary schools.
We provide pet registration tags for pets.
We conduct fund raising activities to finance our programs.
We are a good source for information on pet behavior problems, but do not consider ourselves a replacement for a veterinarian.
We help animals in any way that we possibly can.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All animals are located in foster homes and would require an arranged meeting. We hold adoptions events throughout the year as well.

Our Adoption Process...

THE FIRST STEP to adopting an EAPL animal is to fill out a DOG ADOPTION APPLICATION.

EAPL is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a shelter facility where applicants can come look at multiple animals at one time. All of our animals are in foster homes that range from Denver, to Evergreen, to Northeast Colorado - where they are loved and cared for until they are placed in a forever home.

The adoption process begins when you complete an online Adoption Application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt. Completing an application does not restrict you to a specific animal, nor does it obligate you to adopt.

Once we have received your application and determined that you are a good match for the requested animal, we will contact you. The foster parent will then contact you to arrange a time for you to meet the animal, at which time you can decide if you would like to complete the adoption. You may be asked to visit the animal more than once before taking it home. After your initial meeting with the animal, one of our volunteers will conduct a home visit. This may occur before you take the animal home or when the animal is delivered to you.

Once the adoption is approved, you will need to complete our Preliminary Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee. We will keep in contact over the next few days to make sure everyone is happy. If so, we will mail out an official Adoption Contract for you to sign and mail back. At that point, your adoption fee will be deposited.


Our animals are our clients.
Our job is to find each of out animals the right home. Rejected applications are not necessarily a reflection on the applicant’s home, but rather based on the determination that the home is not the right match. Before adopting, keep in mind that many of our animals have never lived inside a home. Some dogs may never have been walked on a leash, socialized, house trained or spent time with other animals. All, even those who previously have been in loving homes, will need patience and understanding as they learn to adapt to a new life and family. Rescued animals need adopters who will not give up on them if they have accidents in the house, pull on the leash, dig in the yard or act nervous or frightened.

Because of the work done in our foster homes and the care we take in matching animals with the right home, most of our animals will fit in their new homes immediately. But some will not. Many will need some form of training.

An adoption will be successful only if the adopter is committed to seeing the animal through the adjustment period. The rewards are the unconditional love and loyalty of a wonderful companion and the satisfaction of knowing you have given a rescued animal a better life. EAPL wants to support you with resources, education, and encouragement for the lifetime of your pet. Please contact us at any time following adoption for assistance.

Adult dogs $125 (1yr and older) - includes Distemper/Parvo vaccine and Spay/Neuter.
