Chico's Info...

Chico's Story...
Hi! My name is Chico. I am a 59 lb, 3 year old Harrier mix. My family could no longer care for me and relinquished me to a shelter. Unfortunately the dog-guests at that shelter were not given much time to find a new home and so I was relieved when I was transferred to MaxFund. When I got to MaxFund I was underweight and put on 8 lbs in just about as many days. I feel a lot better now!
I am easy-going, mellow and well-behaved. I am friendly to both men and women and need to be in a family of adults or with teenagers over 16 years old. Although I am OK with some dogs, I would do best being the only furry member of my family. I am very affectionate and like to snuggle up to you, so you will never be lacking for love!

I walk politely on a leash and take treats gently. I am also housetrained. I have had no formal obedience training and I know I would benefit from positive reinforcement classes. These would help us get to know each other better and help me feel secure with my new family. I definitely need affection, but I also appreciate firm, calm guidance from my humans. I am not suited to be the companion to any of the couch potatoes of this world since daily walks are a must for me. I would also love a secure yard with a 6 foot fence to play in. Hiking might be fun too!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chico, a Denver Harrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Harrier for sale in Denver, or seeking a Harrier dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Denver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Harrier breeders who help with Harrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
