Rooster is a 6-year-old male, neutered Anatolian Shepherd. He is a very sweet and gentle boy despite his 116-pound size. He loves all people and kids. Due to circumstances at home, I am forced to find a new home for him. It is due to no fault of his own, he is a fantastic boy and everyone who meets him loves him. I can provide interested parties with more details on the why if needed. He loves to hike and play and is excellent on a leash. A fenced-in yard is a must for him. He is pretty low-key most of the time and is not a high-energy dog. He likes to sit on the stairs and watch the world out of the window.  He does like to spend most of his time outdoors but is happy to hang out indoors with his people too.  He was raised and has lived with 2 cats with no issue but has never been around cats outside of our home. He is a livestock guardian dog by breed so is not friendly with other dogs right away. He does fine when on walks passing dogs, though I do step off the trail to give him space. If another dog does bark or acts aggressively, he will react by barking at them and tugging on the leash. If they are quiet, he is quiet. He will not be a dog park or doggy daycare kind of dog. He is a big and strong dog, so I have always been very careful to never let him be in a situation where he could react badly to another dog's behavior. His size has to be respected. We did bring a Chihuahua into the home 2 years ago and they are friends now, but we did a very slow intro period over several months to avoid any issues. He did growl at first but warmed up pretty quickly, we just kept them apart due to the extreme size difference to keep the smaller one safe. He may do best as an only dog or with a calm, smaller dog, though planning on a slow and separated intro period would be important regardless of the dog. I do not think he would do well with a high-strung or highly energetic dog. He does not like the intense stares of herding dogs I have found when on walks. He isn't the biggest fan of car rides, just pants, and whines, so he is not going to want to be a riding buddy unless you just need to take him somewhere like to hike. I do use a light sedative on long car rides to help him rest and he does well. He is kennel trained and rests quietly when in there. He is up to date on vaccinations and is on heartworm prevention. He has no health problems. He has lived with a sheep but did like to play more than a guardian should at times. He is not 100% chicken safe, so would not trust him to be around them as he would sometimes chase them. Meaning I think he would do better as a pet and not a guardian. There will be a $200 rehoming fee that will be a donation paid to EAPL. Vet references and a home visit will also be required. Interested parties can contact Leila at 281-467-2478 or email at Leila_star@hotmail.com I would love to be able to visit him as I am going to miss him dearly. I am happy to answer any questions, get you more info, or schedule a meet and greet.

Additional adoption info

THE FIRST STEP to adopting an EAPL animal is to fill out an ADOPTION APPLICATION. EAPL is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a shelter facility where applicants can come look at multiple animals at one time. All of our animals are in foster homes that range from Denver, to Evergreen, to Northeast Colorado - where they are loved and cared for until they are placed in a forever home. The adoption process begins when you complete an online Adoption Application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals you hope to adopt. Completing an application does not restrict you to a specific animal, nor does it obligate you to adopt. Once we have received your application and determined that you are a good match for the requested animal, we will contact you. The foster parent will then contact you to arrange a time for you to meet the animal, at which time you can decide if you would like to complete the adoption. You may be asked to visit the animal more than once before taking it home. After your initial meeting with the animal, one of our volunteers will conduct a home visit. This may occur before you take the animal home or when the animal is delivered to you. Once the adoption is approved, you will need to complete our Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee. We will keep in contact over the next few days to make sure everyone is happy. IF AT ANY TIME AFTER ADOPTION, YOU DECIDE YOU CAN NOT KEEP THE PET FOR ANY REASON, you must call EAPL and give us the opportunity to get our pet back based on space available. Our animals are our clients. Our job is to find each of our animals the right home. Rejected applications are not necessarily a reflection on the applicant’s home, but rather based on the determination that the home is not the right match. Before adopting, keep in mind that many of our animals have never lived inside a home. Some dogs may never have been walked on a leash, socialized, house trained or spent time with other animals. All, even those who previously have been in loving homes, will need patience and understanding as they learn to adapt to a new life and family. Rescued animals need adopters who will not give up on them if they have accidents in the house, pull on the leash, dig in the yard or act nervous or frightened. Because of the work done in our foster homes and the care we take in matching animals with the right home, most of our animals will fit in their new homes immediately. But some will not. Many will need some form of training. An adoption will be successful only if the adopter is committed to seeing the animal through the adjustment period. The rewards are the unconditional love and loyalty of a wonderful companion and the satisfaction of knowing you have given a rescued animal a better life. EAPL wants to support you with resources, education, and encouragement for the lifetime of your pet. Please contact us at any time following adoption for assistance. Adoption fee for all dogs and puppies: $250 Adoption fee for all cats and kittens: $75 Payment will be collected when you get the pet, but will be held until the adoption is final. Then you will be on your way to your new life with your new family member!

More about this rescue

The Evergreen Animal Protective League was organized in April, 1981, to aid lost, abandoned and suffering animals through rescue, shelter and education. The League has provided a better life for over 9,300 cats, dogs and other pets. Some facts. We are totally volunteer. The majority of our members work during the day and do their volunteer work in the evenings and on weekends. There are NO paid employees. We are not supported by taxes. All funding comes from donations from the public, and from fund raising activities. We do not make money from adoption fees. Adoption fees do not even cover the cost of advertising the pet, let alone vet care, etc. Because we must raise our own funds to operate, we depend upon the Evergreen community for contributions and for volunteer assistance. We are a non-profit organization recognized for tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service. Our tax exempt number is 74-2204391. If you are contemplating donating to us you may use this number. We rescue and shelter (if space is available) abandoned pets. We adopt pets not claimed by anyone to new homes. We reunite lost pets with their owners through lost and found records. We assist financially with neutering of pets, and we educate pet owners about neutering whenever possible. We educate adults wherever possible about proper care of pets. We provide educational programs in the elementary schools. We provide pet registration tags for pets. We conduct fund raising activities to finance our programs. We are a good source for information on pet behavior problems, but do not consider ourselves a replacement for a veterinarian. We help animals in any way that we possibly can.
