Available Dogs

Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.

Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.

Morty

I'd love to find my forever family!

I'm a sweet, handsome boy. I am very loyal to my humans. I am a bit shy at first when I meet new people and I will need time to warm up. I'll need to go at my own pace. Once I warm up, I'm very loving. I really don't like being at home alone, so I'd love a family that could spend most of their time with me. I am dog selective, so I might do best as an only dog. I'd also do best in a home without children. I am very treat motivated, know my basic cues and love to learn!

Byron aka Stitch

Adoption Pending!

Did you say "snacks?"

Generously sponsored by Pikes Peak Veterinary Clinic, making Byron's adoption fee just $65! Be sure to check out Byron's feature in our Virtual Adoption Fair! I am a silly, goofy boy who enjoys playing in the yard with my canine foster sisters. I also love a good game of fetch! I'm a little shy meeting new people, but with patience and treats I'll warm up quickly. A home with children 13 years and older would be best.

Serenity

Adoption Pending!

I have Therapy Dog qualities!

I am a smart, happy girl! I am very food motivated and would probably make a great sport dog. I do need to learn to take my treats with a gentle mouth. I'd love an active family that loves to spend time with me and stay busy. I think I'd love puzzle toys to work on and keep me engaged. I also would be great with children 10 years and older and other dogs would be okay. No cats please.

I have lots of energy, so I'd love an active family. I am also very smart and love to stay busy. I'm learning my manners and I'm very treat motivated. I also love to cuddle. I'd be fine as an only dog or where I can do slow, guided introductions when meeting a dog. A home with older children, 10 years and older, would be best.

Gavin

I’d love it if I could be your new cuddle buddy!

I am a very sweet and gentle boy! I do have lots of energy and love to run around and play. I'm still learning my manners and I'm very treat motivated. After I play, I love nap time and a bonus is getting to snuggle with someone while I sleep. I love water and sometimes drink a little too much. I'm a young boy and can't wait to train with my new family. A home with older children, 13 years and older, would be best.

Trevor

I'm a confident, curious boy!

I am a very confident boy! Some say even a bit on the serious side. I love to explore. I am very treat motivated, I just need to learn to take them gently. I do get a little overwhelmed with too much going on so a calm house might be best for me.  I think I'd be fine with cats. No children under 8 please, but other dogs are okay.

I do have a lot to say so I need a family that won't mind me vocalizing a bit. I am very treat motivated but am still learning to take them gently. No children under 8 please and other dogs are okay.

I'm treat motivated and love to learn. I am very social so I'd love an active family. I'd do fine with cats and other dogs too. No children under 8 please.

Hunter

Can I just relax and hang out with you forever?

I love being around my people. Belly rubs and ear scratches are the best! While I love walks and playing with my toys, my favorite thing is curling up to watch a movie. I'm potty trained, never chew on things I'm not supposed to, and am fine sleeping in a kennel or bed, though if I can sleep on your feet, I'd prefer that! I'll love it when your friends come over (more scratches!) but I'm not okay with little children (they scare me). Children 13 years and older would be best. I take some time to warm up to other dogs and sometimes don't, but cats are okay if we can give each other our space.

Stark

*I am deaf*

Can we do everything together?

I am looking for my forever best friend! My personality is the epitome of what it means to be a Heeler. I want to be around my person and always touching them when we are together. I love to play tug, chew bones, and get exercise. If I can cuddle while doing so, even better! Most importantly, I LOVE CARS! I always want to hop in the car or truck. I am afraid of new experiences, but I am brave. As long as I can smell around, I will warm up to the new person, place, or thing. Although I am deaf, I constantly check in and read the social cues given by people and other animals, as well. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older.

Will you be my best friend?

I love meeting people! I'm a sweet boy and I love my humans. I have lots of energy. I am very curious and very smart. I'm still working on my manners, so I'd need to continue training. I love to play tug and I love my rope toys. I want to learn and I have so much potential with the right person. I'd do best as an only dog and a home with children 10 years and older may be best.

Danica aka Dani

Looking for a heart to cling to? I'm your girl!

I'm a sweet girl! I love to give kisses and when I'm extra excited that can feel a little nibbly. I have some energy initially, but eventually become laid back as I settle in. I still get excited to see humans when they come home, but then will go back to sleep. I sleep a lot, but do occasionally wake up to bark at loud noises outside.  I do like to hide in my crate when I hear something that startles me. I bark at guests when they come in, but quickly try to get attention from them. I sometimes try to sneak out of the door behind my people. I do come back, but like to run in circles for a minute and sometimes greet the neighbors if they're out. I'm nervous out on walks and don't always like to walk too far, but I do enjoy going out for a little bit. I love baths and will often sit in the shower and wait to be bathed. A home with other dogs would be fine and a home with children 10 years and older would be best.

Jaylen aka JJ

I'll be your best friend forever and never want to leave your side!

I am a very sweet, gentle boy! I am a little shy, at first, when meeting new people, but I will warm up quickly. Once I warm up, I love being with my human. I enjoy hiking and spending time outside. I do get a little car sick on car rides. I'd need a home with another dog because I love other dogs and their companionship. I'd also do best in a home where someone is home most of the time because I don't really like to be all alone.  I'd like a home with children 8 years old and older. When I first go to a new home, I'd need to be supervised closely because I can be a bit of an escape artist. A home without cats would be best too. Another dog in the home is a must.

Sheriff

Can we play?

I am a happy boy and I love to play with my friends, whether they are human or dogs! I sometimes am a little nervous meeting new people, and I am also nervous when new people come to the door. I will get more training to help me with this! When I am home, I love getting pet and will snuggle up close to get belly rubs.  Smelling things is my favorite hobby, whether it be around the house or on walks!  I love to be outside exploring the sights and the sounds of the yard, and I really love taking my human along on walks.  I get very excited when I see other dogs and I want to go up to them and say hello.  If I get too overwhelmed, however, I can be pretty noisy.  I'm an adventurer at heart, so if I am left alone outside too long, I may get bored and decide to go explore the neighborhood, despite the fence! I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older. Another dog is a must!

I am a happy, energetic boy! I love giving kisses. I'm very smart and I am so enthusiastic about training. I have lots of energy and I love taking walks. I enjoy games and puzzle toys too. I also love to cuddle up next to my humans and relax. I'd do best in a home with children 8 years old and older. I may do best in a home as an only dog or with a calm, older dog with slow introductions.

I'm a cuddly teddy bear!

I am a bit shy when meeting new people and will need time to warm up. Once I've warmed up, I'm as sweet as can be. I am a little more uncomfortable with men and it does take me a bit longer to warm up. I am always more comfortable when Dutchess is with me. I love long walks and car rides!
