Eliza's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Donate Heart

Meet Eliza! She is a sweet and compassionate gal who loves toys of any kind and belly rubs. She likes to lay on the back of the couch like a cat! Eliza loves to cuddle with her people and is generally a lap dog. Despite her short legs, Eliza would make a great exercise partner. She walks, runs and hikes as much as she can! This girl has the energy and fortitude of a big dog encased in a small dog's body. She knows the commands 'Come', 'Sit' and 'Lay Down'. This girl is smart and trainable as she is food motivated.

Eliza was surrendered to a local shelter after her previous home became too stressful and busy for her. Eliza needs a home that respects her shyness and is willing to give her the time necessary for her to warm up to her new family and their routine. She can exhibit resource guarding because she wants to protect her food, toys and bed. Therefore, she needs a family who is willing to work with her on her 'sharing skills'. This playful girl is fiercely loyal to her humans and is eager to please them.

In her foster home, Eliza lives with another dog who is submissive to her so they get along just fine. She needs to be the alpha dog in a home. In her foster home, Eliza lives with older children who give her space and are considerate of her. She should not be around little children as she can be nippy if she feels overwhelmed or is hugged or petted too rough. As long as she is respected, she is good with older kids.

Will you open up your heart and home to a short-legged beauty with a huge heart of devotion to her people? Please fill out the online app to start the process of giving Eliza her Forever Home today!

About Animal Rescue of the Rockies

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We work with foster homes to help find homes for pets in need. We coordinate with other shelters and rescue groups to help spread the word about homeless pets on a regular basis. Our philosophy is that each pet deserves a loving home and a long, healthy, happy life. We do everything in our power to ensure pets receive the training, veterinary care, and loving attention needed in order to provide a "happy ending" for everyone! We operate a volunteer-run thrift store in Breckenridge, Colorado to help fund our operations so we can help as many pets as possible. "For Pets' Sake" is located at 203 N. Main Street in Breckenridge. The shop's phone no. is (970) 453-4339.
