Resting regally on her red plaid blanket, recent puppy mama Rolo is enjoying a well-earned respite. The 13-pound tan and black sweetie is only now learning how safety feels and remains fearful of loud noises and meeting new people. But once she grows comfortable in their presence, she loves to sit in their laps and to cuddle. Highly treat motivated, Rolo responds to her name, knows her "sit" and "down" commands, and is at work on her leash training skills. One of her cuter quirks is taking her treats to bed with her, while the other is sleeping in the clothesbasket! An alert barker who sounds the alarm whenever she hears someone at the door, she’s housetrained during the day and uses a pee pad at night (this should normalize once her "mothering" is done). Not fond of either her crate or rides in the car, she must be introduced slowly to adults, children and other dogs, and now needs the loving guidance and patience of an adoptive home to complete her education in exchange for a lifetime of Rolo cuddles.
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 $250 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 ARRColorado@gmail.com for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.
