Hi, my name is CRICKET, but I’m not an insect – I’m a 7-8 year-old Jack Russell/Toy Fox Terrier-mix.  At least that’s what I look like, but it is just a guess.  Before Colorado Canine Rescue (a non-profit) brought me to the Denver area, I was in a shelter in Houston TX, so little is known about me.  It seems that I hadn’t gotten much love or care; I was in pretty bad shape. My skin was awful and I had lost most of my hair – probably from a severe allergic reaction to fleas.  But you wouldn’t know it to look at me now!  It’s taken a little while, but my skin is healed and my hair is almost all grown back.  I feel like a new dog!  

When I came to Foster Mom’s, I wasn’t comfortable being held or petted, but that has changed and now I like her attention!  In fact, even though I get along just fine with other dogs, I wouldn’t mind being an only dog because then I would have all the attention to myself.  As for cats, I’ve barked a little at Foster Mom’s, but that was just to show them who is boss.  A yard might be nice, because I enjoy being outside.  I even have some really cool cover-ups to protect me from too much sun – and I like being dressed up.  I am crate-trained, but I like it when Foster Mom lets me snuggle with her in her bed.  I am house-trained, too, but there might be an accident or two while I am getting used to my forever home.  

Loud noises and voices make me anxious, so a family with young kids likely wouldn’t be good – but someone calm and loving who wants a quiet companion would be just right for me!  Do you think you might be that calm, loving person?  Please go on-line right now to fill out an adoption application  CCR is asking a $100.00 adoption donation for me, which is such a deal because I am spayed, vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped, and I just had a dental!  Remember, though, the Rescue can’t guarantee my breed composition or my age – but you won’t care about that once you meet me!

About Colorado Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Colorado Canine Rescue is a newly founded rescue group, which is located in Englewood, CO. We were incorporated in August of 2008 with a goal to help decrease the amount of dogs euthanized due to pet overpopulation. Our mission is to rescue dogs from shelters who are slated for euthanasia. Our dogs are cared for in foster homes while receiving proper training, veterinary care, and lots of love.
For more information about our group, please visit our website .

We currently need volunteers and foster homes, so please contact us if you would like to become involved!

Our Adoption Process...

Upon adoption, each dog will be up-to-date on all vaccinations, spayed or neutered if of appropriate age and have a microchip identifier placed. A minimum $100 donation is required to cover these costs and will vary with each adoption. Please review the adoption policy and procedures and complete the adoption application, which are posted on our website. Once adoption is approved, a signed adoption contract is required.
