Denver's Story...
Denver was pulled from the Clay City KY shelter, where the dog warden and volunteers are doing a great job of getting all the dogs to no-kill rescues or homes. We're not sure what Denver's story is, but he is a neat little dog with no fear or shyness. Denver has a lot of energy, but he's very, very smart, so it won't be difficult to harness that energy with a little direction. He's playful with people and appropriate with other dogs. Denver's coat is a handsome copper color that is non-shedding and low-maintenance. He doesn't need to be trimmed professionally as it will not grow more than and inch in length.

BREED INFORMATION: We're guessing as to the breed mix, but we do know that Denver is 100% TERRIER!! Most terriers have some of the same characteristics, which adopters should consider. Dogs in the Terrier group were developed to hunt and kill vermin. The vermin included control rats, mice and other predatory animals such as foxes that might raided a farmer's produce and livestock. The very nature of these tasks require an energetic, tenacious, brave and determined dog . Terrier dogs have always been viewed as real assets by their owners and have worked with man for centuries. ++++++++++++
Characteristics and features of Terrier Dogs have been introduced and strengthened by breeding with animals who already demonstrated the desired traits. Breeding for appearance was only introduced in the 19th Century. Before this time dogs and puppies were bred to increase useful abilities and traits helpful for the duties they were intended for. The trait encouraged was the ability to dig up underground dens and burrows and "go to ground" whilst barking noisily to frighten out any inhabitants.
In this day and age not every Terrier might be called to undertake these vermin -related tasks, but nevertheless, they still harbour the skills and characteristics that made the original breeding program successful.
******************************************************
The Terrier dogs are small to medium size and are often described as fiery or feisty. The smallest terriers are ready to take on any opponents - a necessary attribute when hunting and killing vermin but not so good for a family pet! Some terriers are yappy and are known to nip boisterous children. They can also be quite independent and difficult to train. On the positive side Terriers can be friendly, stable and loyal pets.

Denver's adoption donation is $250.
