Hi, I'm Gia! 

 So, first things first: I'm a rockstar.  Heard of Bon Jovi?  Poison?  Yep, that was me in the backround on stage woofing along, playing the cow bell.  I know everyone knows the SNL skit about the cow bell with Blue Oyster Cult.  I was the inspiration.  I'll sign autographs later.  You know what else I'm a rockstar at?  My obedience training.  My foster mom is a dog trainer and she's been working with me and says I'm doing great.  She's even going to offer four free obedience classes to whoever adopts me so I can just be the best dog ever!  I absolutely love people, probably because I had an amazing fan base.  If you let me, I'll crawl right in your lap and take a nap.  My pictures make me look bigger than I am.  I'm really only a medium sized girl who would fit perfectly in your lap! 

My fan base was definitely a more mature audience, and I still prefer to party with adults and kids over 10.  I am an active dog and I would love a home with a buddy to play with, especially a boy buddy, but after some exercise outside I am perfectly happy to chill and be mellow in the house. I do love long naps in the sun! I should also mention that I'm 100% house trained, walk like the rockstar I am on a leash, travel well in a car, do well in a crate for a short period of time, and will love you forever and ever! Fill out an application to meet me today and maybe I'll even play the cow bell for you!

Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes that every pet should find a wonderful, caring home. To ensure each pet finds the best possible home, we ask that you fill out an adoption application form so we can learn more about you and your household. We review each application we receive and will contact you as quickly as possible. A home visit will be scheduled before any pet is adopted to a new home. Once a home visit has taken place and the adoption application has been approved, we will ask you to read and sign our adoption agreement form. Our adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter, veterinary exams, vaccinations, microchipping, and foster care, enabling us to save more lives!

Adoption fee is $200 and covers microchip, DAPP, Rabies, Heart Worm test and spay/neuter.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here . We want our pets to go to a lifelong new home, so thank you for your patience during the adoption process!

Please email for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

Our adoption process is:

1. Fill out our Adoption Application online.

2. We'll contact you to schedule a home visit.

3. If the pet looks like a great match, fill out our Adoption Agreement online (or Foster-to-Adopt Agreement), pay the Adoption Fee, and arrange to pick up your new furry family member!
