Mae is very sweet and intelligent but super submissive and has been this way since she was 5 months old. She loves to play fetch anything that could get her outside and on adventures she’s up for. She loves car rides. She’s lived with other pets before and is a very follow the leader type of dog. Cats she’s fine with but hasn’t been around much. Same thing with kids never been around little kids before but she has a sweet demeanor and has never been a concern around other people. Loves attention and requires a lot of it.

Story
Harper is the best dog. She is sweet with all people and has a calm and relaxed disposition. Unfortunately we are having issues with her and our other dog getting in fights. We have worked with them again and again, but have come to the decision that Harper might be overall a happier dog if she was the only dog in the house (we have 2 others). She is overall uninterested in other dogs, not reactive typically. She loves to lounge around most of the day and enjoys a good walk and some play time with her flirt pole in the backyard. She also enjoys lick mats and kongs. If you give her the stimulation she needs, she is the best dog. She’s good with kids, but would probably do best with older/calmer kids. She would make a great companion if you want a dog that is affectionate, but not clingy. We will continue to work with her in the household, but ultimately we want what is best for our sweet girl. We will not settle for anything less than someone who will love her as much as we do.

Story
When he's comfortable, Apollo is such a smiley boy! One of his previous families noted he enjoys long hikes, attention from his favorite people, and playing tug! Additionally, he's previously lived successfully with other dogs and a cat. Because of all of the recent upheaval he's experienced, we anticipate his new family will need to invest in helping him feel safe and secure in a new environment through gentle, patient support.Apollo has been described by our walkers as easy to walk, staying calmly by their side. Sometimes cars driving by may startle him but with calm reassurance from our volunteers he settles down quickly. He enjoys a good back scratch (well ,who doesn't?), bird watching and will sit for hot dogs! For his comfort and because children have been stressful for his previously, Apollo is available for adoption to families with children aged 10 years and older Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 57.8 Age: 3yrs 1mths 2wks

Story
I am a BIG, playful, goof of a dog! I want nothing more than to run and PLAY!  I am great with other dogs who want to play and the ones who don't I respect their boundaries. I would love a forever home with another big dog to play with, and I promise we will wear each other out!  I came into my foster home with 5 other dogs ranging in size and age with ZERO problems.  I have not been tested with cats that I know of.  I am potty trained and take myself out the dog door.  I am kennel trained and will happily go in there to eat my meals and for bedtime.  It takes meer minutes for me to settle in for bed.  I love all toys, balls, soft ones, hard ones...really I just love anything fun!  So far I stick to what's mine and leave my fosters shoes and other items alone.   I am looking for an active home, because I am an active boy.  I would make a great running partner, hiking partner, biking partner, I could easily pull you on a skate board if you taught me how! I am very food motivated and right now I'm learning that my food is safe and won't be taken from me (see below for why I'm probably confused about my resources). I would love a forever home that wants to do training! I want to please and will be very easily trained, I already know my sit and lay down and it seems I know stay!  I would do best in a house with a yard, in an apartment setting due to my size and tendency for zoomies more room is probably best.  I AM SUCH A GOOD BOY, my back story is actually mind blowing. I have had quite the 9 months of life so let me tell you what the rescue knows for sure.  I was a lucky one and made it out of a very high kill shelter in NM.  I was adopted in January as a baby big boy and returned because they weren't quite ready for a puppy.  Then I was adopted again in February.  As far as the rescue knew that was my forever home but fast forward to July and I was surrended to a Denver area shelter by someone that I was rehomed to because they were not able to meet my needs.  When the rescue found out they obviously came and got me! So now I'm in a foster home and my foster mom has PROMISED me my next home will be forever.  It has to be, I am the best goofy big boy you will find.   ##1884672##

Story
Delilah’s birthday is October 27th, 2023. She is eight months old as of 6/27/24. She was rescued from a shelter in March, where she was spayed, got her vaccines and got a full vet work up. Due to sudden injury/illness, I am sadly no longer able to properly care for sweet Delilah for a long time, so I felt it would be best to give her chance with someone else. Delilah loves running; she is super fast! She loves the dog park and gets along with humans and other dogs very well, even if she is shy at first. She will eat anything! She loves carrots, cheese, fruit and of course ice cubes! Her favorite special treat is a McDonalds ice cream cone. She may have a lot of energy, but her favorite thing to do is lay next to you for movie night or go for a sunset walk with you. She doesn’t mind being in her kennel and loves her stuffed toys. She is the sweetest, most caring, dorky pup you’ll find. She has so much love to give and so much potential in life!
