Facts about Monette

  • Breed: Pekingese/Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10804632-16-1397
Monette is approximately three years old, and from what we can tell, she is a Pekingese mixed with something -  not sure what that "something" might be doxie. We think she is a new designer dog breed ---   "Doxignese"!!  hahahaha      She is very good with other dogs, though she is possessive of food.  She's good with people, and greets everyone with open paws.  Monette is always up for a little adventure, such as running errands; going for walks; going to the office with her foster mom; and any other activity that would give her a little change of pace.  When you see her walk or run, you wouldn't know Monette has a broken pelvis, and the base of her tail is broken. She was a stray, who had been hit by a car.  She's doing much better than when she arrived at EAPL. The orthopedic vet recommends surgery    not    be done, as he believes Monette can have a good quality of life without surgery, plus the type of surgery that would be needed carries a great risk of causing incontinence. Sometimes, Monette's pelvis bothers her, but when she gets ouchy, a commonly prescribed, inexpensive painkiller takes care of her discomfort.  Please see the attached video that shows she gets along pretty well, despite her broken pelvis and tail.  Monette absolutely must not be allowed to use stairs, except for one or two steps on a porch or patio.  She does jump onto furniture that is low to the floor, and seems to have no trouble doing so. Beds are too tall for her to jump onto. Her foster mom doesn't allow her on beds, only for fear that Monette would aggravate her injuries jumping off high furniture. Monette is content sleeping in her own bed, next to her foster mom's bed. She is okay being crated or confined to a small room for a few hours, when necessary.  Monette likes to be outside, so a fenced yard is recommended. She likes being held, and will happily hang out on an available lap for as long as you'd like her to.  Monette is looking for a home in which someone is around much of the time, and where there are either no stairs or where access to stairs can be blocked.  She would be fine in a household with another small, gentle dog (no big or rambunctious dogs who might crash into her, please), or she would be fine being the only dog. Monette is house trained. If you think this dear girl would be a good addition to your family, please put in your application today!      https://youtu.be/3gOxX1yYn3M     


About Evergreen Animal Protective League EAPL - Westminster Location

About Our Rescue Group...

EAPL - Westminster Location is an animal rescue organization based in Westminster, Colorado. Our mission is to rescue, care for, and adopt out abandoned or stray animals in need of loving homes.


We are dedicated to promoting the spaying or neutering of all pets while providing the best medical and nutritional care available. All animals are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before they are adopted.

EAPL saves animals from several shelters in the region, most who are in danger of being euthanized, and finds temporary living situations for them until they are adopted. All EAPL animals are living in boarding facilities or foster homes. If you are interested in an EAPL animal, please send an email to eaplevergreen@eapl or submit an application.

All animals are in foster care and will attend adoption events

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.

IF AT ANY TIME AFTER ADOPTION, YOU DECIDE YOU CAN NOT KEEP THE PET FOR ANY REASON, THE ANIMAL MUST BE RETURNED TO EAPL.

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.

Puppies $175 (under 1yr) - includes age appropriate Distemper/Parvo vaccines and Spay/Neuter at our assigned vet. Pit Bull puppies will receive a microchip. Spay/Neuter deposit of $50 is required if not altered at time of adoption due to age.
