Story
Meet TANK! 💚🖤💚🐾💚🖤💚 This handsome tri-pawd is ready to find his furever family!😍 Tank is a 1 year old Bully Mix who is a total puppy at heart❤️ he is very affectionate and loving! What we’d call a “Class A” snuggle bug 🐞 Tank LOVES to play, and he’s getting pretty good at fetch too😏 Tank is a wonderful pup who has lots of energy! Although he only has three legs, he LOVES his walks and an occasional run! The only thing Tank loves as much as cuddles and walks is treats 🍖 He’s willing to do anything to get one! He’s eager to please, incredibly smart, & a very quick learner. One of Tank’s favorite activities is his after dinner belly rubs 🥰 Tank enjoys his crate, he likes having his own space 😌 He’s fully potty trained, and he’s beyond ready to find his people! Tank has been fostered with other dogs, but he prefers to be the only dog🐶 He gets jealous of sharing his humans’ attention. He has been through so much in his short life, he is eager to love and be loved, & will be the perfect companion🥺Tank has been fostered with kiddos 10+. His favorite being is his kid foster brother💚 Tank’s adoption fee is $200. He is neutered, microchipped, & up to date on shots. Tank will benefit from continued at-home exercises with his furever family. Tank has had a long road of recovery, but his fosters have stuck by his side & are ready to find his happily ever after 🐾 if interested in meeting this cutie, please submit an adoption application to setup a meet and greet! https://dooverdogs.com/multi-step-adoption-form-1/

Story
Meet George!  This little boy is soooo adorable!  George is super smart, and completely puppy potty pad trained.  George has the most beautiful green eyes!  Georgie loves to play and get crazy.  But he totally settles down when you need him to.  Georgie lives with an older pit bull and he loves to play and respects her signals. He  plays with other dogs just fine too when they visit.  He is a super-companion dog and would LOVE  to go hiking with his human when he gets bigger. He sleeps all night uninterrupted.  Also, he can be free-fed. His adoption fee is $300 ($250 adoption fee includes his neuter at one of our assigned vets + $50 neuter deposit) Put in an app at eapl.com February 29, 2024, 7:42 pm

Story
My name is Kisses. My mama (Zola) is a chocolate lab mix, and we are her Chocolate Candy Pups! Mama made it to the shelter in Texas just in time to give birth to me and my 7 siblings on Christmas Eve. Then we hitched a ride to Colorado and we are so excited to find our forever families! I am a silly sweet girl, and I find fun in everything I do. As my name implies, I give the best little kisses! I adore my people and have so much fun playing with my siblings and foster auntie dog. I may be one of the smallest of the bunch, but I can keep up with all the big dogs! My foster family says I am the perfect mix of goofy, sweet, and playful. I would love a family who will give me lots of kisses and include me in all the family fun. I will be ready to go to my forever home on March 9th, I'll be 11 weeks old!  The adoption fee is $300 ($250 includes the spay/neuter surgery at EAPL's assigned vet + a $50 spay/neuter deposit) Put in an app at eapl.comFebruary 29, 2024, 7:42 pm

Meet Stella! Stella has a beautiful, soft, white coat and is so cuddly! She is about 1 year old and 55lbs. Her demeanor is calm, and she has done great meeting dogs and humans outside of the house. She loves long walks and playtime with the neighbor's dogs. Stella is getting additional training as she scavenges for food on counters and tables (we are working with her and learning not to leave items out.) She also shows resource guarding (humans and food) inside the house with the resident dog.  This is another area that we are working on with her and her forever home will need to continue to work on. Her amazing soft-cuddly size makes up for her "two" areas that she needs work on!  Her adoption fee is $250 Put in an application at  www.eapl.comFebruary 29, 2024, 7:42 pm

Story
Fiona did NOT show well in the kennel at the shelter and became a candidate for the euthanasia list because she was so shy. She is now thriving. She gets along with all dogs and sizes, loves to play and fetch and is house trained! She should be in a home with another dog who can help continue to teach her that life is good! She takes treats very gently, knows how to sit, and will make someone a great companion.   This girl deserves a loving home and would do well with kids who can handle her size. She is a mutt of her dog and most likely also has some large breed in her too!    To meet this lovely girl, go to www.eapl.com and fill out an application. Her adoption fee is $250.    Takes treats gently:  https://youtube.com/shorts/t9fX-8gwOjw?si=3aCTR8NpNnMhACqP  Knows sit and gets pets:  https://youtube.com/shorts/ydNyvmtLZG4?si=dvFiug6-DkCDA-7i   February 29, 2024, 7:42 pm
