Story
Nacho is just the cutest teen! Ready to bring some fun into his new home, Nacho enjoys playing with toys, playing with other dogs, and going on long walks!Young children were stressful for Nacho in a previous home so at this time, for his comfort, he is available to families with children aged 10 or older.Our volunteers tell us that Nacho Dog is a sweetheart. He still has that wonderful puppy energy and playfulness and is a great tail wagging walker. He has a "things to do and places to sniff" approach to his strolls and when there is snow on the ground enjoys rolling around in it.Nacho's ideal family is an active one that enjoys training and skill polishing alongside their dog and most importantly is interested in getting to know what their new friend enjoys. Just bring the salsa; we have the nachos! Primary Color: Blue Brindle Secondary Color: White Weight: 46 Age: 0yrs 11mths 3wks

Such a wiggly boy! Once comfortable in his environment, Bubala likes to show off his big smile and loves attention from his favorite people. Bubala has been playful with other likeminded dogs while hanging out with us at the shelter. This boy loves his treats!Bubala's experiences before he was found as a stray are unknown, and at this time Foothills recommends a home with older or no children as he weathers the transitional stress of getting settled into a new life routine.Our volunteers tell us Bubala is an energetic and enthusiastic walking buddy, and he appreciates the opportunity to romp outside and enjoy the smells!

Bruno

American Bulldog

Male, Adult
Golden, CO
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
It's tough to be Bruno. Anxious fella, he appears to have missed out on the well-rounded life exposure as a youngster that would have fostered adult resiliency, and now Bruno just needs some extra support to feel safe, and he's likely to prefer a more introverted lifestyle.When overwhelmed Bruno tends towards peaceful protest, laying down and waiting things out or choosing to find another space for some solitude. Creating spaces in your home where that can continue to be a self-management strategy for him will be important, and a home with a yard so that Bruno can opt out of leash walks and still enjoy outdoor time may suit him best.Bruno is available for adoption to families without children.

Story
Meet Bo! His previous family shared that he enjoys short jaunts around the neighborhood and we feel like he will excel at finding sun spots in the house to lay around in. Bo finds fireworks and other loud noises such as thunder to be a bit concerning and will appreciate some thoughtful support from his family during those times. Taco 292646 and Bo 292647 can be adopted together for a shared adoption fee. Primary Color: White Secondary Color: Black Weight: 75 Age: 10yrs 0mths 3wks
