My name is Bob!

Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle Mix Dog for adoption in Lakewood, Colorado - Bob

I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Bob's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Bob's Story...
Bob got off to a rough start in life but he has adjusted and is ready to find his forever family. In August 2012 The Sunrise Foundation took in four of 20 dogs that were dumped in the woods of Missouri after living in a hoarding situation. Bob arrived with a heavy burden of heart worms and immediately underwent heart surgery to remove the majority of them. He then underwent two injection treatments to rid him of any remaining worms.

Bob is finally testing heartworm negative as of May of 2015. Yay!!!!

Bob is VERY smart and responds well to training. He would thrive with someone who was willing to spend time one on one teaching Bob tricks and proper behavior. Bob's personality with all dogs and the people that he has come to love is fun and loving. He loves to play and be held. Bob's personality with people that he doesn't know is wary and unpredictable. His new family will have to be patient and introduce Bob to strangers slowly.

We are looking for a family for Bob without small children. Because of the unpredictable nature of smaller kids and their friends. He needs a calm environment. Bob can take some time to warm up to men, so the new man in his life needs to be patient and calm. He can be won over with treats. We are hoping for his new family to have a dog. Bob needs another dog to let him know that he is safe and loved. Bob's training needs to include ONLY positive reinforcement. He has come a long way in trusting people and it would be very easy to set him back. Bob needs to be in a home with a yard, not an apartment. He enjoys exploring the back yard and running fast.

Bob was never house trained as a young pup, lived in a hoarding situation, and now lives with several other male dogs in his foster home. Bob does mark and this behavior will need to be addressed. Bob will always need to be on Heartgard monthly.

If you would like to meet this precious boy please fill out an application and email it Sunrise. He is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on his shots. $125 to qualified home.

Home visits and references are required on all adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bob, a Lakewood Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle for sale in Lakewood, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle dog from a breeder in Lakewood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lakewood 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 Lakewood 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lakewood paves the way for another one to be saved.
