He has his eyes on you! And what wise, warm eyes they are. Clearly a family pet at one time, this mellow 40-pound fellow is fondly familiar with life in a loving home. Affable Argo loves being with people (including cuddling on the couch or bed and snuggling on all open laps), and gets along well with other frisky dogs and respectful older children. Very playful and extremely energetic, he LOVES his power walks and thrives on vigorous exercise, such as games of high speed fetch with his fosters. Easy to teach and eager to learn, he’s crate and housetrained, knows his "come", "sit", "off", "down", and "stay" commands, and is honing his leash skills. If he’s mouthy, he responds promptly to "ouch", and if he jumps up excitedly, "off" brings him down to earth. He’s still not a fan of the car, and due to his highly developed prey drive, lunges at bicycles, skateboards and scooters during his walks. With time and training, however, this overly zealous, yet joyous pup will both improve and impress. The best home, then, for Argo, is one with a fully fenced yard and active, affectionate adopters committed to his ongoing education in exchange for his enduring love.

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.
