Bandit is a young adult (we are guessing about 1-2 years old) Terrier mix weighing about 12lbs.  Bandit does seem to shed less than some dogs, but we cannot guarantee that he does not shed or is hypoallergenic, so he is probably not the best dog for someone with allergies. When Bandit was first transported to us we were told to be extra careful because he was the most nervous.  At the time he didn't even have a name.  His wonderful foster family brought him home, opened his crate, and just let him come out when he felt comfortable.  To their surprise, within just a couple hours he was hopping up on the couch and laying next to them.  Over the next couple days his personality grew and he became a happy, loving little dog.  His foster family decided to name him Bandit since he loves to steal their stuff and play with it haha.  Bandit is now a very affectionate little dog and loves to give kisses, snuggle, play with his foster brother (a lot) and sleep between his foster parents.  He is truly just a great little dog and watching his personality come out has been such a joy!  Bandit would do great with another sibling to play with or as an only dog as long as his family has time to spend with him and lets him get all the snuggled and affection possible.

Char is a young adult Pitty mix weighing about 45lbs. Char was brought to a shelter in New Mexico when she and her best friend were found wondering the streets.  Her friend was pregnant and Char was actually thought to be pregnant too. Becuase of this animal control trapped both dogs and brought them to the shelter.  The shelter that they ended up in is a high kill shelter.  No rescues were stepping up to help them since all rescues are so full right now.  Their euthanasia date came quickly and just hours before they were set to be euthanized we were able to break them free from the shelters and bring them to CO.   Luckily, Char ended up not being pregnant, and her friend gave birth to 4 puppies right after arriving in her foster home.  We did end up needing to split Char up from her friend into different foster homes since her friend was a nursing Momma and did get protective of the pups...understandably so.  Char is ready for the next chapter in her life, where she gets her very own family and a doggy sibling.   Char is the sweetest dog.  She is a little timid at first when meeting new humans, but does warm up quick.  She loves to snuggle with her foster Momma and becomes attached pretty quickly.  She sleeps in bed with her foster and would love to do so with her forever family.  Char does well in a crate all day and has really learned over the last few weeks that the crate is a safe place.  Char is doing very well with potty training and seems to have that down!   We are going to require that Char goes to a family with another dog because Char LOVES dogs.  When a dogs comes over for a playdate Char just lights up.  She loves to play, romp around the yard, and make new friends quickly.  Char also loves to play with balls.  She is just such a great, sweet girl who has been dealt a crummy hand in life, but we are going to make sure the rest of her life is filled with love and happiness.

In the market for a lifetime best friend and partner in crime? Look no further than Cujo! Don’t be fooled by his name - this 8 year old terrier mix has nothing but love to give. Cujo's owner died in New Mexico and he was left in the apartment for over a month with no human interaction other than a neighbor dropping food and water inside the door. When he was finally found by animal control, he was confused, alone, terrified, and had a huge mass under his armpit. Brighter Days worked hard to get him to CO as quickly as possible, where he had surgery to remove his mass. When he first arrived, he was extremely scared and did not want to leave his crate. It took some time (and a LOT of peanut butter) but he is starting to warm up and come out of his shell! Cujo loves attention in the form of pets and ear scratches - he will even beg for affection with his signature move of swiping his paws in the air! He knows quite a few commands, including sit, stay, paw, and “go to bed”. He is still working on potty training as he was in an environment where he wasn’t able to go out for so long. Although he has made a ton of progress in a short amount of time, he is still quite apprehensive about people and does not allow anyone to pick him up. A large part of this may be due to his poor eyesight - as he is an older dude, he is starting to form cataracts and his vision is limited. For this reason, a home with children under 12 would not be ideal for Cujo. Cujo may be quirky but he is truly an amazing little dude who was dealt an incredibly crummy hand in life.  He just needs someone with unconditional love and patience.  Cujo also gets along well with other dogs and cats.

Palooza is a 2-3 year old Terrier Mix.  We are guessing she is a cairn terrier but we are not too sure.  She weighs about 15lbs and is just an adorable scruffy sweetheart. Palooza was dumped at a shelter in New Mexico with her 6 little pups.  We knew that the shelter was no place for a mom and her pups so we worked with our rescue partners in that area to get her out of there as quickly as possible.  They were able to find a safe foster home for her to go to until we were able to get them all to CO.  Sweet Palooza was an amazing Momma but it is now time for her to get loved and spoiled her forever humans.  Here is what Palooza's foster have to say about her: "She is a sweet, loving, affectionate lap dog.  She is great on walks and is a pretty energetic dog (typical terrier). She will force your hands to give her belly rubs - it's the cutest thing!.  Palooza is great with other dogs and loves to play...she loves as much attention as possible.  At first she can be a little timid of new people but warms up to them pretty quickly.  She is just not a dog who will run and jump in a strangers arms.  Although few dogs are.  She loves to give kisses and is good with kiddos.  Shockingly she is good with bathtime too.  She pee's outside and is working in pooping outside.  As long as she has someone who can consistantly take her out she should be potty trained in no time! She just needs a little patience!" Palooza doen't seem to shed too much but she is not a non-shedding dog or hypoallergenic.  If you are interested in adopting Palooza, please fill out our adoption application at brighterdaysdogrescue.com show less

Shye is an adult Pitbull Terrier weighing about 65-70lbs.  Since we do not know her full history before she came to us, we are guessing she is between 4-5 year old...but that is a guess. Oh sweet Shye, where to even begin.  We would like to start by saying Shye has been in our care for over a year now.  She has won a huge spot in everybody's heart and there is not one Brighter Days person who isn't madly in love with this sweet girl. Shye's history was very rough.  We don't exactly know her past but when our rescue partners were finally able to catch her, she was beyong terrified.  Even when she was the most terrified she never growled or showed any signs of aggressions, she would just cower, withdraw, and shake.  She broke all of our hearts.  It's pretty clear to us that Shye has had some previous litters, and may have been used as a backyard breeder dog, since she is absolutely gorgeous.  We knew that Shye needed some confidence training, for her own benefit, and so she could be a good adoption candidate.  She was trasnferred at this point to our board and train program where she has really blossomed and become the most amazing dog.  Shye is just a happy, loving, sweet little piggy.  Her smile says it all.  Despite her past all she wants to do is love and live a "normal" happy life.  She listens great, and has done wonderful in our board and train program.  While the main thing she has accomplished is so much confidence, she is also a very well trained, great dog now.  We will require whoever adopts Shye takes the training course with our trainers to make sure she is 100% set up for success.  The training course is free of charge and SO worth it! Shye gets along with people and dogs so well, she is just great, there is really no other way to put it.   If you are interested in adopting Shye, please fill out our adoption application at brighterdaysdogrescue.com show less
