Audrey is an 11 week old adorable Shih Tzu/Poodle/Chihuahua mix weighing about 5lbs.  We are guessing she will be between 10-15lbs when full grown (maybe 20 but we don't think so).  Momma is an adorable poodle mix weighing about 10lbs.  We did a breed DNA test on the puppies which we have attached to the pictures.  The breed DNA test said Sophie and her siblings are mostly Shih Tzu, followed by Chihuahua, Poodle, Lhasa Apso, and Bichon Frise.  While these babies are 70% non shedding, we cannot guarantee they will be non shedding and would not be a good choice for someone with allergies. Audrey and her siblings were born in our care after their Momma was dumped at a shelter when she was pregnant.  Because of that we have been able to well socialize and monitor these babies.  We have made sure they are happy, healthy pups! They all love to romp around the house/yard, play with each other and their momma, and snuggle up on their fosters chest during nap time.  The foster does have an older kiddo who they absolutely love and bigger dogs who they do well with.  They are just the typical happy, bubbly, smile-inducing puppies. If you are interested in adopting Audrey or one of her siblings, please fill out our adoption application at brighterdaysdogrescue.com **Yes we know their adoption fee is high, the fee is going 100% to helping us get our other dogs who are long-term stay dogs the vetting and care they need.  The price of vet care has risen exponentially over the last year and becuase of that we have to increase adoption fees to continue saving lives.  Thank you for understanding! show less

Barton is a 2.5MO Dachshund (maybe Shepherd?) Mix weighing about 9lbs.  Barton was surrendered to one of our rescue partners in New Mexico with his three other siblings.  The family who surrendered them to us said Momma was a Dachshund mix and they didn't know what dad was.  Barton and his sibling Gates are noth twice the size of the other two pups.  This makes us believe there could have been two dads in the litter.  Barton and Gates both weigh about 8lbs, where Sage and Lynah weigh about 5lbs.  We would love for their forever families to do breed DNA tests they are always so much fun!  We are guessing Barton and Gates will be about 25-35lbs and Sage and Lynah will be about 18-25lbs when full grown.   Barton is one of the goofiest, most unique puppies.  His ears flop in every which way and he truly looks like a large Dachshund puppy.  Barton is as sweet as can be and loves to romp around with his siblings and play with toys.  All four pups are a little nervous at first with new humans but warm up quickly.  They love belly rubs and to snuggle/burrow.  They love all animals, even the fosters big dog.  They will follow him around like the annoying little siblings they are.  We see these pups going to forever families who are patient, loving, and moderately active.  These pups will not be high energy and will not need daily runs/excessive exercise, but will need daily walks and mental stimulation.

Buffalo is a young adult male weighing about 10-12lbs.  We are guessing he is about a year or so old, and that he is a Shih Tzu mix or Havanese mix. Buffalo came from a backyard breeder who was moving and had to have all the dogs gone before he moved in a week.  We were actually only supposed to get one dog from him but when our partners went to pick up the dog there were 4 dogs stuffed in a small kennel outside on the sidewalk waiting for them.  Obviously we took them all without a plan, but the breeder never told us what breeds they were or any information on them...what a terrible human.  Due to his looks, and the fact that he does not seem to shed too much, we are guessing he is a Shih Tzu mix.  He has the cutest little underbite! Buffalo is the cutest little man.  He seems to be potty trained (although his family will need to be patient in his forever home obviously).  He gets along great with other dogs and all people.  He did great with smaller puppies, adult dogs, and loves rough housing with the big dogs in his foster home.  He is just a great, easy going, loving dog.  He would love to go to a home with another dog to play with since he is still a pup himself, but honestly as long as he has a human who can snuggle with him and be with him most of the time, along with daily exercise, socialization and mental stimulation he will be ahappy boy!  While he does seem to be non-low shedding we cannot and do not think he is a hypoallergenic pup and we should not be adopted to someone who has allergies becuase that is just setting him up for potential failure.

Callie is a young adult (we are thinking 3-4) Collie/Kelpie Mix. We actually had a breed DNA test done that shows she is 43% Border Collie and 7% Australian Kelpie.  Callie was dumped at a high kill shelter with her 5 puppies because she became a burden to her "family"  None of this was her fault, and the person who dumped her at the shelter even said they would have kept her if "she hadn't gotten herself pregnant".  My gosh, don't people know in this day and age there is a simple solution for that? And it's ALWAYS the humans fault, not the dogs fault.  Anyway...We are glad they decided to surrender Callie because by the time she got to us she was heart worm positive and had so many fleas and ticks her fur was missing in big patches. Callie has been in our care for a few months now and has been going through heart worm treatment.  She is doing great and her fur is becoming soft and shiny.  It has been so wonderful to see her become a happy, healthy dog.  Callie is now ready to find her forever family, and here is what her foster family has to say about her" "If you’re looking for a Velcro best friend, look no further. Callie is the most lovable little bug and will make the perfect companion for anyone willing to give her the love and comfort she needs! Callie, like many rescues, is timid around new people at first. But the dog she becomes when she is comfortable is amazing. She truly blossoms with her people, and her silly, quirky personality really shines. She knows her name, comes when called, knows basic commands, and is a sucker for a fancy treat. Callie is a lower key gal. She loves a good walk but doesn’t need much more. She just wants to be with you! If she sounds like the right fit for you, please reach out to her wonderful rescuers!"

Jess is a 3MO, 22lb adorably big baby.  Jess and her siblings were found in a ditch in New Mexico covered in THOUSANDS (literally) of ticks, fleas, and fighting for their lives.  A wonderful woman who found them took them straight to the closest vets office in the rural town where they quickly got them on fluids, and hospitalized them to get them stable.  Once they were stable the vet reached out to our rescue partners for help since the shelter in their area is at 100% capacity and would have been forced to euthanize these babies right away.  Once they were healthy enough to travel we transported them to CO to find their foreve families.  Since we don't know anything about their history, except their neglect, we don't know their breeds and it's all just a guess.  We are hoping their forever families will do breed DNA tests on them to see what breeds they actually because they are so fun!  Due to their current size and age we are guessing they will be about 55-65lbs when full grown.   All four of these pups are incredibly loving and sweet, especially with everything they have been through.  They are social, outgoing, playful, and honestly pretty mellow.  They love to greet new people and give kisses and snuggles.  They romp around the yard with their current foster dogs and love to play with toys and other four-legged animals.  Their fosters descrive them as "very easy for young pups".  While they do have a normal amount of puppy energy and will need daily exercise and mental stimulation just like every dog, they are not going to be crazy energetic dogs and will be totally okay with lazy/relaxing days as well.  They would love another dog to play with but it is not mandatory as long as they are loved and cared for they will be happy.

**Mollie is a board and train dog through Brighter Days.  Please read all about this before applying to adopt** Mollie is a 2 year old Rottie mix Mollie was surrendered to Brighter Days Dog Resue because her previous owners had never taken the time to train her properly.  Becuase of this she was surrendered to Brighter Days to find a family who actually has the time and dedication a 4-legged companion needs.  When an adult dog comes to us lacking any sort of training we immediately get them into our board and train program.  One of the main reasons dogs get euthanized in an overcrowded shelter is due to lack of training.  When we started Brighter Days we made a commitment that we would make sure every single Brighter Days Dog would be set up for a life time of success, which includes training.  Our trainer works so hard to get these dogs to be wonderful, stable, balanced, obedient, great dogs.  To make sure their hard work is not lost over time due to owners who don't continue the training, we require each one of our adopters who is adopting a board and train dog to take our trainers classes in longmont.  It is an eight week course that is usually $300, but for Brighter Days adopters it is free! Here is what our Trainer has to say about Mollie: Mollie is a high energy, hilarious, sweet and affectionate dog. Mollie will need daily exercise, so an active home is best for her, a home that enjoys walking, running, hiking, etc. Also she needs a house with a big yard and a fully enclosed with a 6 foot privacy fence. She is an awesome dog and will be perfect for the right, active family.  We are going to require Molly goes to a home without other dogs, cats, and kids just to make sure she is set up for success.   If you are inerested in adopting Mollie please fill out our adoption application at brighterdaysdogrescue.com show less
